Patient Comments (6)
Rochester |
I have been going to Dr. Bertram for the past couple of years. He is extremely professional and has a great bedside manner. With his care, I have been able to stay away from narcotic medication and surgery. His staff is caring and always goes the extra mile. I recommend Dr. Bertram to everyone I know.
in Auburn Hills |
My husband first used Dr. Bertram for his back and he received relief from his injections. I had an issue and went to Dr. Bertram and he has helped me with head and neck pain. You have to have confidence in the doctor who puts needles into the base of your skull. He has a gentle touch and is a caring doctor.
Ortonville |
He is a self-center and arrogant doctor that does not listen and does not want to hear your thoughts or opinions. He need to be learn to read his patients, not everyone is a drug seeker, some need extra care and support. He can not look beyond his own ego to see the signs of abuse and does not want the extra work it may take. When things go wrong, he is too arrogant to admit the error and get help! He does not care. He does as little as possible. Calling with a question do not expect a call back

I started seeing Dr Bertram about 7 months ago. He was WONDERFUL when I made the switch to his clinic. Recently, he is very short & uncaring. Hes unwilling to switch me over to what works for my pain. He is "uncomfortable" bcuz it stopped working. I explained many times it didn't, I was having another issue that I was hospitalized for. He stops me & says no, We're not going back. His new larger framed lady that assesses the patient made the office quality go down, I heard her talking to him @me
in Oxford, Mi |
When I first started seeing him he was fabulous. He finally gave me answers to my questions about my pain. He was great to talk to and very understanding. After seeing him for a year he was no longer understanding even with being honest with him. I told my PCP and they had stated that they had heard similar complants. I would not suggest this Dr. for long term care. This Dr. Does have an awesome staff
