He is a danger to specialized children. Run far far away. My son almost died because of him. My teenage son who was of average weight lost 33lbs under his care he did nothing. He like to make jokes and that’s all he’s good for. He has put many children in danger. Please read the other reviews online and protect your children. Choose someone else

I saw Dr Berman and my 14 yr old has ulcerated colitis. His bedside manner awesome, his explanation of plan of care exceptional. He has a lot to offer other Dr.s in Dr patient communication and care. Fantastic

Because of him my son's in the hospital 35 lbs later in dangerous condition. Never helped or knew an answer. Has zero concern. Shouldn't be in practice, I done understand how he's allowed to be working he's a danger to his patients. Proceed with caution

What a poor excuse for a human being. This so-called doctor wouldn't even come near my son for fear he may catch some disease. News flash.. Autism is not contagious. However, bad reports do get around. He did not answer one question and after I gave that the hospital my review, they refused to refund my copay. Not only is he a poor doctor, he also lies. This doctor needs to have his license revoked.

Dr Berman offered no medical advise or assistance but was happy to take the money. And he was rude. Don't waist your time or money.

He refused to let anyone talk. He asked questions and before the baby's mother could speak, he moved on to the next question. He wasn't interested in hearing anyone besides himself. He seemed threatened that we had looked up information and had prepared questions beforehand. He spent more time outside of the room than inside. Seemed VERY JUDGMENTAL! He is really old school and I would definitely not return to this rude excuse for a human being. VERY POOR EXPERIENCE!! STAY AWAY!!!!
