Middletown, MD |
Arogant and "knew" my cure before even discussing the history of my condition. Needless to say, his first cure didn't help. Scheduled a follow up appointment, office called to reschedule, and doctor was at least 1.5 hours behind for the rescheduled appointment. So I told the receptionist I couldn't wait that long because I had to go back to work. I called the office a few days later to reschedule and they gave me a difficult time because I canceled appointment. I'm never going back to Berg

As a result of my 82 year old mother's colonoscopy it was discovered she had rectal cancer. We were referred to Dr. Berg and within a couple of weeks he performed surgery and successfully removed the tumor. She has almost completed her radiation and chemo which was advised as a precaution. Dr. Berg took the necessary time to explain the best way to surgically remove the tumor and answered all of our questions. We found him to be courteous and compassionate. We definitely recommend Dr. Berg!
