Dr Berger is very caring and takes whatever time is needed to throughly explain all procedures and surgeries. He always points out Pro's and Con's. His staff is the greatest. All calls are always returned in a timely manner. He is truly trustworthy.

He left the ugliest scars and I've had numerous surgeries where you can't even tell I have scar, this Dr didn't care! His nurse is the most unprofessional nurse I've ever had to deal with! She is rude and sloppy writing out your Paperwork! She crosses out on disability paperwork like she is seeing if a pen writes! She is terrible and so is he! Perfect team!
