What People Say About Dr. Leland Berkwits, MD

After many years of suffering severe knee pain, my 97-yr-old mother is now pain free without medication, thanks to Dr. Berkwits. Her orthopedic Dr. wanted to do total knee replacement and told her that nerve ablation would not work. Thankfully, we did our own research and we are so grateful to Dr. B for his genuine care and concern and his professionalism. The nerve ablation was a success. My only regret is that we didn't know there are so many options in coping with pain without medication.

Dr. Berkwits at the Pardee Pain Center gets my highest recommendation. His expertise and knowledge, using injections and ablations reduced the pain in my back and knee by 80-90%. I am now able to be fully active as I was before arthritis attacked my knee and back.

We were referred to Dr. Berkwits and found him to be an excellent choice, and the perfect doctor to deal with my back pain. He is completely professional, highly intelligent, personable, highly ethical and "user friendly". Dr. Berkwitz spent an ample amount of time with us and answered all of our concerns in language we understood. He is very careful dispensing pain medication, which we found comforting and highly ethical since some doctors are pretty loosey goosey with their prescriptions.
