Dr. Bergstrom was attentive, engaging, friendly, thorough and reminded me of how doctors used to provide patient care. He spent more time than I've had with an MD in many years, explained my diagnosis and treatment in detail, and was very helpful. I highly recommend him.

Calls are not replied after 2 or 3 weeks. I saw up for an analysis when the Bergstrom's office individual told me that everything was ready and it was not ( two hours of absence at work) . I called three times and not reply before 2 weeks. Really poor customer support. Doctor is ok, kind of sacarstic (sometimes) so I am not sure how well he is listening the paticients.

I have been a patient of Dr. Bergstrom for more than 25 years. He has been treating my diabetes. An indication of his skill is the average of my last 32 A1C tests is 6.06. He continues to provide excellent advice and takes account of the entirety of your health conditions. Based on his concerns I have been able to lower my blood pressure, and he was able to use my PSA to refer me to a urologist to ultimately treat my prostate cancer. I trust him absolutely.

Excellent doctor. I see him for my diabetes and he is thorough, careful, and never rushes me. He answers all my questions and often draws pictures to help explain things. He remembers me from visit to visit and has looked at my chart BEFORE he comes into the room (unlike some of my doctors). I would definitely recommend him to family or friends.

I have low testosterone I have had it for most of my life Dr Bergstrom sees me one time deams that a level on the very low end of the spectrum for any adult is normal for me a man only 26 years of age and won't even bother to see me a second time to try and reason with him in regards to my medical history someone who says he cares for his parents won't even give me the time of day to try and figure out what is going on not a doctor I would recommend to anyone also the medical staff was rude
