Very knowledgeable and caring, good listener, and extremely accessible. Having been to many so-so psychiatrists I recommend him without reservation.

I suffer from severe anxiety and PTSD. I've been going to Dr. B for 5 years. He is not a cuddly teddy bear. But frankly I'd rather work with someone whose focus is to get the job done efficiently, professionally and responsibly. I have addiction in my past (sober now) and Dr. Bergman is extremely involved in tracking my progress. He does not continuously "dole out" prescriptions and is very judicious about. If I want to spend an hour pouring my heart out to someone I go to a psychotherapist.

He is too robotic. There is no give and take. Very little affect. He accepts insurance but his practice is run like a milll. I don’t recommend him at all.

Dr. Bergman is a wonderful doctor and has helped me tremendously. His bedside manner is very gentile and he is a thoughtful person and made me feel comfortable as soon as I met him. He helped me find the right medications and worked with me to find what worked and didn't and made sure I got my medication when I ran out at times. He is genuine and truly listens when you have concerns. He tries to accommodate last minute appointments even though he is a very busy man.

I have been going to Dr. Bergman for many years. He is approachable, accessible, compassionate, and collaborates closely with the patient. His office practices are top notch as well. Timely prompt care but never rushed. A top notch medical professional with an expertise with mental health diagnoses. Highly recommend.

Dr Bergman is an excellent choice for ongoing medication management. He moves you in and out pretty quickly and runs an efficient practise.

I began seeing Dr. Bergman in 2015 because I had been having severe sleep problems for years, which was adversely affecting my overall functioning in every area of my life. What I was taking for sleep was not working. We tried several different medications, and he was responsive to my comments about side effects. After going through 3-4 medications that didn't work, we finally found a good fit and I have been able to sleep well for the first time in years. He is a professional all the way.
