I did not get a chance to experience a visit with Dr. Berger, when I attempted to make an appointment I was told that he was only excepting new patients from a certain group of doctors which totally floored me, and my referring doctor was not in that group of doctors so I was told he was not excepting new patients but his website clearly says he is excepting new patients. WOW
