Dr. Berman and his entire staff could not have been more helpful, professional and efficient. They schedule their patients appropriately so that there is no significant wait time.

Oak Creek, WI |
I had a worrisome spot on my face. I called around to several other dermatologist offices and was not able to schedule an appointment until October. I was surprised and please that I was able to get in to see Dr. Berman within the week. The waiting area was clean and pleasant, I was greeted promptly and called in to see the doctor within five minutes of arriving. Dr. Berman was very calm and reassuing. I was happy with my experience and would not hesitate to recommend this location.

This was my first time seeing Dr. Berman and I was kind of nervous. After talking with the doctor, I realized that he is very knowledgeable, kind and considerate. He even used an appropriate amount of humor to alleviate my nervousness . Would I recommend him to my family and friends? Absolutely.
Menomonee Falls, WI |
I received a bill for $1384.97 to remove 3 warts!!! This is outrageous. I called and told them I could not afford to pay this amount to remove 3 warts and there was nothing they would do except offer a payment arrangement. Buyer beware!!!
Franklin, WI |
I have had several appointments with Dr. Berman over the last two years. He has always been very professional has given me excellent advice.
Milwaukee, WI |
Went to Dr. Berman for my ongoing Psoriasis issues. He lacked any knowledge what so ever on Psoriasis. He didn't bother to listen to anything I tried to tell him, instead spending the time trying to convince me to go on a drug that he likened to chemo! Additionally, he ran some blood-work, the results of which took 3 times longer to process then he said they would. I will forever refuse to make another appointment with Dr. Berman.
Fox Point, WI |

Dr. Berman was the first doctor to address my hair loss, Other dermatologist said my hair follicles were dead and there was nothing they could do. I was very pleased with the service I received from him, he prescribed medication and products for my hair and now I can see the new growth. I would definitely recommend him to family and friends.

I appreciated Dr. Berman's attention and sense of humor; he quickly put me at ease.

Dr. Berman has been my dermatologist for about 15 years. I trust his judgement and appreciate his honesty about treatment options. I value his willingness to listen to me and to care for my aging skin challenges according to both what is medically advisable and what my priorities are. I like his new office and professional affiliation with Forefront Dermatology.

Dr. Berman is a very caring conscientious physician! I would recommend him to anyone having dermatology issues!! Thanks for your Help!!!!!!
Dr. Berman saw my son and addressed his acne right away. I told him he had tried everything, so it was nice he listened and we didn't have to go through the same process with him. He made my son feel confident again with his skin.
Wisconsin |
Very disappointing consultation. He seemed disinterested in my concerns, possibly because he was seeing me only for one appointment. Other reviews could show that he treats his regular patients with greater consideration.
Milwaukee, WI |
Dr Berman was super proactive and caring with my concerns about hair loss with menopause. Highly recommended.
in Milwaukee, WI |
Dr. Berman is a very professional and knowledgeable Dermatologist who works for you! Not the insurance/pharmaceuticals. He will direct you in the proper direction and take care of any concerns, big or small, embarrassing or not. Hes very friendly and knows this business. Top notch Dermatologist!
