Always a good experience

Best doctor ever seen.
in Tuxedo Park, NY |
I had double Cataract surgery 2 weeks apart. Dr. Berger is meticulous in the process. He is also very responsive to patient concerns and answers all questions. The team at Good Samaritan Hospital that work with him are A Plus.. Efficient and compassionate..
in Tappan , New York |
Dr. Berger is an extremely competent and caring physician. He takes time to address all of the patient's questions and concerns . I felt extremely confident with him both prior and after my surgery. Dr. Berger performed cataract surgery on me twice within a period of a month. The surgery was performed at a medical center near Good Samaritan Hospital in Suffern, New York. Dr. Berger met me at the facility for the surgery and let me know what was happening during the surgery. He is an A+ Doctor

i like dr berger, but other than the assistant who took me into the examining room, I find everyone very busy and not very helpful. The young lady that checked me in did not smile once. There are other reasons that I don't care for the office staff, but I will say there are a lot of them and they are very busy. I thought the patient was the most important person.
