    Dr. Berkowitz is professional and kind. That's a rare combo. He explains everything about your condition and about a procedure until you understand. He is patient and nurturing. I had full knee replacement surgery. I am very pleased with the care I received and the results I got. I absolutely recommend him.

    Thank you Dr. Berkowitz for giving my life back. It's 6 weeks from surgery and I'm walking without a cane and swimming everyday. What a comfort Dr. Berkowitz has been to both myself and my husband. He answered all my questions and concerns confidently. His staff and surgery staff are perfect! Thank you again.
