What People Say About Dr. Thomas Berkbigler Jr, DO

Dr Berkbigler, Is a Horrible Doctor. He was nice at first but, after my Surgery he turned Very Mean. He told me and another patient" that we're terrible patients. He said if it hurts he would not return to our room. What does he expect he just cut our knees open. So, then he took off down the hallway Yelling" what a set of Horrible Patients he had the past couple of days. The Nurses were not even helpful. It was a 2 hour wait for our call light. The Nurse on duty that night said" you both need to wait until your Nurse comes back from her lunch break. 2 Hours later she shows up asking "What do you want?" I hope nobody has to go through this mess and if State finds out about How Parkland Hospital in Farmington Missouri is ran by these expensive doctor's we have to pay for and the staff they use. Good Luck to those that you put your life in their hands. Because, the Doctor should be investigated and they need New Night Nurses that really want to work. Get Nurses And Doctor's that WORKS!

This surgeon did my elbow surgery in January 2016 because it had a growth that was causing pain and weekness. My surgery went very well and the scar is barely noticeable. This man has missed his calling, he should have been a plastic surgeon

This was second knee replacement. Knee was solid and stable when I left hospital. Was up and going in 2 weeks without aid of walkers or cane. Staff was great to work with also. Easy to talk to and actually call you by name. Care, comfort, consideration and confidence close to home. Glad he's in our community.

Not honest at all, begins first sessions exactly like his posted philosophy states, but after surgery, when things have gone wrong during surgery, his demeanor changes to denial and non-caring, medical records virtually impossible to obtain, claims computer problems, etc... Life of pain and fractured bone that cannot heal.

Dr Bertbigler is the best. I was born with a club foot. He knew about club foot/feet. And the problems I have with my knee/foot. I would highly recommend Dr Bertbigler.
