Dr. Berkowitz was not only concerned with my spine, but me as a whole person. He was easy to speak with, ask questions of, and interact with. I was referred by a friend and I will certainly refer!

Arrogant, egocentric, horrible man. Doesn’t care or listen to patients. Zero beside manner. Very argumentative with patients. Even his own staff tries to steer patients away from seeing him and instead schedule appointments with his PA.
