Dr. Berger's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Berger "I have practiced gastroenterology in Virginia Beach for the past 36 years, started and run (2) GI practices, the first for (20) years and the more recent (Center for Health) for the past 16 years. I have performed over 40,000 colonoscopies. In the 1980's, our GI were the first to perform GI procedures in the office rather than the hospital setting, making the procedures less costly and more 'patient friendly.' In 2001 we introduced propofol anesthesia (a much more effective and safer alternative to conscious sedation) to office based GI procedures. This resulted in a much better patient experience, safety, and acceptance. I am a graduate of Harvard University, Duke Medical School and Yale Medical School. I am board certified in both Internal Medicine and Gastroenterology. My other interests are communication, Leadership development, and reinventing Healthcare."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Berger "We are a highly specialized, 'hi-tech' practice utilizing the latest technology for GI procedures such as colonoscopy and endoscopy.  HOWEVER, equally important to us is the quality of your experience when you are in our office. We believe in the 'old fashioned' approach to medicine, just like my father, Dr. James Berger, and his father practiced. We take whatever additional time you need to answer ALL of your questions and put you at ease.  One of our patients shared her experience with us, saying that she felt like she was 'the only patient in the office.'  We strive to have EVERY patient feel this way.  We are committed to 'putting the care back in healthcare.'"
