Champlin, MN |
He has completely ignored my son's need for surgery on his Spondylolisthesis L5/S1. Six months after the original scheduled date...still nothing. Now extremely suicidal- chronic pain 24/7. Keep feeding him pain meds,etc for the numerous side effects...numbness in hands, legs and feet, joint pain, fractured foot from trying to offset the back pain, sleeplessness, depression...unable to work or have any kind of normal life. Unbelievable! Dr is not God...as he thinks!

I've had 2 successful surgeries with Dr. Berman and like everything about his practice. Other doctors speak very highly of him.
in Arden Hills, MN |
Dr Bergman ,has been a very caring ,dr very thoroughly with everything he does. I highly recommend him to others needing a neurosurgeon.
Saint Anthony, MN |
Not only did he fail to accurately diagnose my condition, but he genuinely didn't give a hoot about me as a person. It seemed like he just wanted me to leave asap and seemed perfectly content with saying I don't know. You should try someone else. Completely unhelpful and a waste of my time and money.
in Annandale, MN |
Dr. Bergman explained my tumors to me in a way that was easy to understand, he's very down to earth, honest and likable. He is a brilliant doctor, very experienced, and my favorite doctor of all I've ever been treated by!
