I was pleased to see that the office was cleaned and seats/chairs were social distance off. The ladies at the front desk were friendly which is good customer service. I was greeted by a the nurse she was nice and the other assistant who takes your blood pressure. Dr. Bergash greeted me as he came into the room. With this Covid, I hope that all doctors (wearing masks and shields change of gloves after every person), nurses, receptions, are following the guidelines of the CDC: cleaning/ sanitizing the office rooms (seats, wipe off door handles, have hand sanitizers in the rooms.

I have been seeing Dr. Bergdash for close to 11 years. I have chronic ear problems and see him every 3 months. I use to have constant ear infections but under his care he has been able to eliminate many of my problems. He is very efficient, knowledgeable and caring. I would recommend him to anyone.

Br. Berghash was referred to me by my primary physician. I called several times to schedule an appointment. Each time I got a recording, asking me to leave a message, which would be returned; they never were. I also applied online with the same results. I am I glad that I found out that Dr. Berghash's practice is so unprofessional and unresponsive BEFORE I became a patient and really had a critical issue. I am going to find another physician who treats (potential) patients with consideration.

Richard Judah BenAvram in Port St. Lucie, Florida – Dec 14, 2017
Dr. Berghash is a caring, compassionate physician who took the time to listen to all my ear, nose and throat issues. He formulated a plan for my care and wrote it down so there would be no problem remembering what he said. He provided written information on my condition so I could review it and made it a point to tell me to call the office if I had any further questions. I recommend him without reservation.

Shirley Kohn in Palm City, FL – Oct 28, 2017
Stay away! Took 3 weeks to get an appointment, was charged the higher rate for a new patient half hour exam, even tho I was not new and was seen for about 7 min. Dr looked at my ears, nose, and throat and charged $510.00. Negotiated rate with insurance was $378 for office visit. Dr acknowledged "mistake" in charging for new patient, but I have yet to see my refund. If dr, looks in your nose, they submit charge as "surgery" Beware! My ins co found me other ENT that charge less for same exam.

L.Graf in palm city – Sep 03, 2016
Had vertigo and the dr. got me right in and I had physical therapy with Donna to correct it that very morning. I was very ill after from the dizziness and they had me sit in a room until I felt better and all the nurses kept checking on me to make sure I was ok and needed anything. I can't say enough about Dr. Berghash and his staff they are wonderful.
