Dr. bertelson is a very empathetic yet knowledgeable surgeon. Returns calls fast and is very informative and helpful, love the fact that she's straight forward. During my visit I needed imediate attention and Dr. Bertelson got straight to the point. Based off her expertise, I'd highly recommend her!

Communication and follow thru is biggest issue with Dr. Bertelson and that is why I'm would not recommend placing your health in her hands. When she informed me that I had cancer she told my about kind of surgery she recommended. She didn't tell me what stage or what kind of cancer I had. I had to ask those questions myself. I was dianosed with rectal cancer stage 1 on 2013 and had 1/2 of my rectum removed. She never told me the recovery time or what the surgery involved. I went back to work too
