Dr Beretta is by far the best pain Management Dr I have had. Hopefully the last. He is courteous, wise professional and very caring. His staff works hard along side him and have been with him a long time. Once you get settled in with Dr Beretta you can feel comfortable and confident that he will take care of your medical needs in the most practical / effective ways in his power. He is not the average "pain Dr mill" this is a respectable man for starters who cares about each and every patient.

Very poor bedside manner to the point this or any other feedback would not be read. So this is for people that will be his patients. His testing is nonexistent to the point of only doing the least he can get away with. Do not know what brought him from the north to Florida and then to Alabama but most can figure out what it was. Dont explain what the reasoning behind the procedures as almost like us southerners are too ignorant to understand and then gets upset when you question him about it.

I'm a lung cancer survivor with post thorocotomy pain syndrome. Dr Beretta and his staff have helped me with the utmost professionalism, compassion and high quality care. They are always warm and friendly. I'm grateful for Dr Beretta and his awesome staff, too!

I have been using Dr Beretta since 2014. He is an excellent pain doctor. He gives me just enough pain meds so I can continue to work and support my family. I have had blocks from several doctors and his blocks are by far the best I have received.

3-15-17 called his office yesterday & they were very RUDE . Said I had my # blocked!? I don't even know how to block my phone. Could not get info &. Unable to drive to PELHAM ! Must be a mistake!? Now don't know what to do? Please call me if you'll know who this is, I'm in Pell City.... Don't understand at all, what's the issue?
Great at epidurals... Horrible as a pain mgmt doctor... No compassion for people in real pain... Will not even give enough medicine to keep severely injured comfortable... Sites rules for GP's as reason...

Dr Beretta gave me a block for my herniated C6 & C7. My appointment was at 10 am. They were very prompt. The Anesthesiologist was very personable and did a great job. The prep nurse had a great bedside manner. Dr Beretta was also very personable. The procedure went well. My entire time at his office was approximately 1:15. I will definitely use his office again.

Dr. Beretta has an awesome bedside manner and is always smiling when I have seen him. He and his staff are knowledgable and get you into your appointment in a timely fashion. They are skilled at completing your procedure in a very effiecient manner. I never feel like a number or forgotten when I visit his office.
