I have visited Dr. Berkson twice in the last 3 years. Both times I was unimpressed. I developed a plan with one of his associates and to my surprise I had to deal with him while the other doctor was out on leave. He completely dismissed the plan and basically through a bunch on information at me. The end result was I either take a lower dose of medication and wait, which i have been doing since March, or go see someone else. I chose someone else.

Type 1 diabetic: Didn't listen to heart. Didn't look into eyes. Didn't check feet. Didn't check skin condition. Farmed everything out to another nurse or doctor. He just sat in his chair.
