Dr Bergsneider and his team, including Dr Wang, are excellent. My surgery was a big success and I trusted the doctor and UCLA. Dr Bergsneider is very busy, but spends time with his patients to explain all that is asked.

I have only had one visit with Dr. Bergsneider so far and his knowledge and willingness to answer my questions and clear my confusion was amazing. He understood how much pain I was in and gave me some tips on was to manage because drugs and pain pills don’t help until something can be done.

Dr. Bergsneider and the entire team at UCLA has been an absolute pleasure to work with. They are well organized and leave nothing to chance. What I really appreciated was the time Dr. Bergsneider took to show on my MRI the exact situation and how his would be handled. I am flying across country from Florida as I have so much confidence in the UCAL team. Mike Kovacs

Was seen on September 3rd, had surgery on the 9th. Felt like it was extremely fast. But didn't have a lot of options. Had to be done. He showed me my scans and explained why I had to have surgery. Glad it is over with and on the road to healing. Felt comfortable and honestly glad I didn't have a lot of time to dwell on it.

Dr. Bergsneider removed my pituitary tumor. I had my surgery Monday and I was released by Tuesday afternoon. He's one of the best neurosurgeon I know. He explained to me about the procedure, and he put me at ease before the surgery. His team, staff, and nurses took good care of me before and after my surgery.
