Dr. Berger was the third neurosurgeon to operate on my daughter for a rare and difficult ganglioglioma 16 years ago, after two other neurosurgeons had failed to remove most of the tumor. We travelled cross country for his care, too. He did a complete resection! My daughter is alive and has a wonderful life, despite some consequences of both the tumor and the three surgeries, only because Dr. Berger took the time and had the patience to follow the tumor everywhere it grew. He is our hero.

Caring, talented Professional that treated my Brain Tumor as well as was sensitive to what both myself and my Family was going through. I traveled across the Country for Surgery from Dr. Berger. Best decision I ever made. I'm +3 years Post-Op and would highly recommend Dr. Berger and his Team of Care Professionals to anyone who is unfortunate to require his Services. The Chicago Bears loss is a huge win for the fight against Cancer.
