Recently had a small surgical procedure performed by Dr Bertch. Everything, from start to finish was amazing ! Going In To anything surgical is scary and there is always apprehension. Not so with Dr. Bertch and her staff. She is very genuine in her caring, extremely knowledgable and has a quiet calm about her that instills a confidence. I would highly recommend her to anyone having any surgical procedure done ~ P.s. 2 1/2 weeks post-op and my incision is barely visible! Win win!

I have been a patient of Dr. Bertsch on two occasions. Both times (skin cancer lesions removed) she did an excellent job with practically no visible scar. The staff was great in her office as well.

I really like Dr. Bertsch. She is an excellent surgeon and has a wonderful bedside manner. She cares about each and every one of her patients. She will talk to you in a way that you can understand. If you have questions ask her and she will answer them. She wants you to know what is going on. I am so grateful to Dr Bertsch for the surgery she preformed on me. If I have to have any more surgeries I hope to have Dr Bertsch as my surgeon. Dr Bertsch has a great staff.

Her staff is kind and patient and works with you with appt scheduling. I highly recommend going to Dr. Bertsch.

My experiences with Dr. Bertsch have always been great, from my surgery to the installation and removal of my port, to my follow up appointments. She is very knowledgeable and listens to the patient concerns. Have been under her care for 1 1/2 years now, and I'm glad that she is part of the team of doctors that take care of me.

Dr. Bertsch misdignosed my mom’s condition upon her arrival at the ER early am 9/10/18. She told our family in front of my mom that she had a 20% chance of surviving the emergency surgery she needed. Dr. Bertsch was not qualified to perform the surgery my mom needed and never should have sent our family and the patient into complete panic mode by making such an uninformed prognosis. My mom was transferred to Prebyterian in CLT for the 6-hr surgery & she is expected to make a complete recovery!!

Dr Bertsch was the surgeon for a ruptured appendix. She recommended waiting 2-3 months before removing the appendix (following a 4 day stay in the hospital receiving antibiotics when the appendix first burst. This was followed by having a drain in place for 10 days to remove fluid). Followed Dr Bertsch's recommendation and ended up having a routine laparoscopic appendectomy. Dr Bertsch was fantastic through it all.
