Patient Comments (1)
in Palatine, IL |
This person almost cost me my life from a condition known as iron overload a condition that causes your ferritin level to be to high. Berkowitz was so busy listening to the cash register go Kaching with all the money I was leaving him as I was sick all the time that he must have foregot to read the ferritin blood test he ordered for me in 2013. In 2016 I had a heart attack because of the high ferritin. The money comes first with this guy as that is the first thing he collects.
