Dr. Berson replaced my ankle, it turned out terrible. He obviously didn't properly prepare for my surgery and put in an implant that was too big for my body. This caused bone ulcers and the implant was loose. Dr. Berson reluctantly admitted the hardware was too big for my bones, 7 months post surgery. I was treated like I was neg by him and PT. He offered to go back in and cut more bone. Needless to say, I fired him and I have one of the best surgeons in Ct. I recently had revision surgery.
I am sorry to hear you had a poor result with your first surgery. Total ankle replacement is a complex procedure and often times requires repeat surgery. I am glad you are on the road to recovery now and wish you the best

Dr Berson did my surgery and absolutely no more pain and I can wear my heels again !! I recommended him to my friends and they to like him.

Dr Berson was excellent with my 11 year old daughter that needed double foot surgery. I highly recommend him to anyone. Very compassionate and explained everything from the first appointment to the final checkup.

Curt and overly officious -- gave me the impression that I was wasting his time despite presenting with a serious problem and a genuine need for his advice and help. Was x-rayed but Dr. Berson did not have the x-rays with him and gave no indication that he'd even glanced at them. Felt like I needed to be able to explain everything in 10 seconds to keep his attention. In sum, I don't think he really was interested in helping me. Subjective evaluation? Sure. But that was my experience.
I am sorry you did not feel helped at your visit. Being an Orthopedic Surgeon, our clinic can be very hectic. Emergency cases, need to go to Surgery, running late from surgery etc. can lead to this. I try to spend appropriate time with all patients but I guess sometimes I can have a bad day and give the impression of being rushed. I hope you have recovered from your ailment, otherwise, I would be happy to see you in the future and hopefully could provide some help.
