Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Berman "Preventative care is a primary goal of mine- I try explaining to my patients the reason behind their foot problem and offer simple solutions

If conservative care solutions do not work I pride myself on offering the proper surgical treatment to my patients.

My Surgical Board Certification should put patients at ease that I have attained the proper training to perform foot surgery

There are cases that fall beyond my expertise and if that happens my patients understand that I will refer them to a qualified surgeon who has the necessary training to help them.

Conservative Care ,Surgical Care ,and Second Opinions are cornerstones of my outlook on Podiatric Services"

Dr. Alan Berman is the absolute best. Did surgery on one of my toes 20 years ago. Problem solved. Went back to him for more surgery on a second toe this past week. Never considered anyone else. Putnam Hospital in Carmel, New York is where he works. Problem solved. The best!!!!!!!

After several consults for Bunion surgery, I found Dr. Berman at Somers Orthopedics. He suggested a relatively new twist on a procedure called Lapiplasty. I underwent the procedure in November.
