Hi, If you're looking for a good Dr. that is educated on the brain, "Dr. B" as we call him, is the perfect one! Unfortunately, I suffered a brain injury & was in acoma for several weeks. They gave me only a small percentage of a chance to live. Well, thank goodness I did. I'm beyond thankful....more

I visited Dr. Bertelson with my mother who has Alzheimer's and also spoke with them about my father who had had a stroke. They were knowledgeable, EXTREMELY sensitive to my mother's fears and concerns, they not only addressed medication, but also a lot of help on therapy and coping mechanisms.
