Very pushy with full hysterectomy with no education to the patient about what to expect from having one at an early age. Ran into a friend who had the same thing happen to her by dr Bergman. Very disappointed even several years later

Dr. Bergman was very unprepared, scattered brained and downright unprofessional in delivering the worst news of my mother’s terminal cancer. Constantly contradicted herself, and gave false hope then took it away. utterly appalling.

I recently learned that I had a large mass on my left ovary. I was referred to Dr. Bergman and was seen almost immediately. Walking into Cancer Care Northwest was a scary and emotional experience. I loved that Dr. Bergman met me in the waiting room rather than having someone else call me back. She was so kind, thorough and allowed me to ask as many questions as I wanted. I didn't feel rushed, or like I was just "another patient." She was so kind throughout my surgery and post-op.

When first visiting with Dr Bergman, I had complete confidence in her. She was thorough, and concerned. She explained the different treatments and recommendations. Scheduling was immediate and surgery and treatment followed.

Ultimately, things have worked out well, which is the most important. My main complaint with this surgeon is the lack of availability to discuss my diagnosis after she left a garbled phone message. Her nurse was rude and dismissive at a very difficult time for me. Dr. Bergman told my current doctor she didn't think I would follow up with treatment. She also said my weight was an obstacle for surgery. I'm glad I switched care providers, have been treated much better since.
