Office staff is basically incompetent. They schedule appointments, and then forget they made them. They don't return calls (unless they're looking for $). They don't relay messages. It is clear that $ is the objective... navigate to the website, and instantly a pop up comes up for their payment portal. Jay Berk is rude... interrupts sessions while in progress, is dismissive, and curt. I worked with one of his protégées, and it was a nightmare. Totally unorganized, cancelled appointments, loses reports. I had a bad feeling from the first phone interaction, and should have listened to my gut. Complete waste of time

Dr. Berk has been the only specialist in 13 years who has been able to reach my son. The inner workings of my son's adhd/odd/mood disorder brain have been engaged at a level that is finally responding. Dr Berk allows my son to be who he is and through direct consultative conversation has helped him understand his reactions and underlying triggers. Dr Berk has pushed my son to own his behavior and decide when to make good decisions and why it is in his best interest to do so. Dr Berk discusses the expected results for good and poor choices and puts the foundation in place and gives my son the tools to work through situations that otherwise have been escalated family terrors. Dr Berk works with us as a family unit as well, to ensure the lines of communication are not manipulated or severed. It has been a long process but without Dr Berk I truly believe my family would have self-destructed.

Christine C – Jul 13, 2021
Dr. Berk is a jerk. He was rude and downright mean to my son. We went to his group for years and it did more harm than good. My child went to his "Sea Camp" in Florida and was angry when he returned. He was dirty, sunburned and did not enjoy it. If I wanted to find out about my son's progress in these expensive group sessions, I had to make an appointment with our family and he charged us for his time. We would all come out crying. Find another therapist.

Dr. Berk seems knowledgeable, is an excellent presenter, staff is nice and efficient, and many of his programs seemed innovative. However, his blunt tell it like it is manner is not for everyone. My daughter, on the spectrum, shy, and low in self esteem to begin with, was in tears by the time she left his office. I was almost in tears as well. Making comments about needing to improve physical appearance to helpgain acceptance (hair, get rid of acne etc.) were cruel and just unnecessary.

My son is 29 years old and has been going to Dr. Berk's "group" for many years. My son is on the autistic spectrum and is high functioning but still has many challenges. The "group" has addressed many of these challenges and I credit Dr. Berk for helping set some of his priorities. Dr. Berk seems to be able to communicate in group so my son understands.
