I started seeing Dr. Berkson since February 2017. About 2 years ago I started suffering from adult acne. It was really bad . I used all sorts of over the counter medication to manage it but nothing ever worked till I googled "dermatologists near me" and Dr. Berkson's name came up. I decided to pay him a visit and I am so glad I did. He's a super stellar doctor, very thorough, patient and he does listen to everything I have to say. He put me on a medication that has worked very well for me.
