Verified Patient Reviews
Extremely prompt service, excellent staff, and incredible bedside manner from everyone I encountered! Everyone was kind and courteous, and I was never kept waiting more than a couple minutes during the entire visit.
The receptionists were rude and told me incorrect information regarding the payment of my visit over the phone beforehand. When I showed up at the visit, my wellness exam somehow went up over a hundred dollars more than they said over the phone. It is truly important not to quote incorrectly!
Overall an extraordinary experience. . Wonderful staff and Doctor.
Dr, Berg was compassionate and professional. He understood my needs and was careful to answer all my questions.

Excellent Doctor. Doctor Berg provides knowledge and excellence. Caring staff with understanding of petients needs. Thank you.
Everyone from the office staff to the doctors are very kind, helpful and professional.
It was very professional and made you feel very confortable.
Front office staff seemed overwhelmed and a bit unorganized. Back office staff (Aime) was very nice. Dr. Berg seemed in a rush and not very interested in my routine eye wellness check.
I have been a patient of Dr. Berg's for the past 25 years.The cataract surgery I had done those many years ago has served me well! Dr. Berg has always been an excellent surgeon as well as a kind doctor. Things in the office are well-organized, and the staff is calm and friendly so the patients feel welcomed and at ease. I travel 50 miles to see him because he is the best. I highly recommend him to others in need of superior eye care!
They did not take the time to review any of the forms I filled out on ZocDoc and tried to get me to fill them all out again, which is very annoying.
Short, friendly and to the point. Assuaged my concerns with simple medical facts.
Very friendly staff
The staff was amazing and very friendly. The nurse, Aime, who performed all the tests was very sweet, professional and calmed my nerves.
His team of assistants were excellent, but as others have said, he spent very little time with me. BUt I suppose overall his office is pretty good.
Perfectly professional and efficient
He and the office staff were amazing, thorough and professional. Thank you.
I don't usually write reviews. But this was the worst doctor visit experience I've ever had! Dr. Kashani was really nice and helpful, but dr. Berg spent less than 2 minutes with me. I had a few questions for him, but he didn't seem to care at all! I wouldn't not recommend him!
The staff is relatively friendly. The doctor is very much "all business", brisk and hurried.
Loved it! Everyone was really friendly and informative. Easy. Comfortable.
The staff was efficient and helpful. My time with the doctor was informative and I felt confident with my future treatment when I left. Thanks!
Dr. Berg and all the staff are awesome. I saw three different Drs. there, at the South Pasadena office, and the Surgery Coordinator Kelly. I talked to Kelly the most and found her to be very professional, helpful and friendly. I didn't even have time to fill out the paperwork they were so fast at calling me in. My first surgery is scheduled for the 21st and I am a bit scared but confident I have chosen the right Dr. and that all will go well.
Everybody was so nice and professionnel!! ;)
Office staff is pleasant, efficient. My appointment was for a problem I was experiencing. Dr. Berg did not find anything in his examination, made a referral to a retina specialist.
Dr. Berg and his staff continue to be true medical professionals - - sincere, interested in their patients, exceptionally competent, and provide a warm and comfortable atmosphere!!!!
Friendly atmosphere, prompt on the schedule.
Dr. Berg and his entire staff were just wonderful. I was seen at exactly my appointment time. My examination consisted of several different stages and I was not left waiting more than a few moments at any point. It was wonderful treatment, I highly recommend this office.
I was referred to this Ophthalmologist because I've had an ongoing eye infection for the past 5 months. I made an appointment using ZocDoc and specified that it was for an eye medical emergency. I received a phone call asking me to confirm my appointment which I did. The day of my appointment I drove an hour and a half only to find out when I got to the doctor's office that he would not treat me. He said he only sees people who are interested in Lasik surgery. I told him that I wasn't there to see him regarding surgery but to hopefully get some relief from my persistent eye infection. He continued to talk to me about Lasik surgery and when I again told him I need to treat my eye first, he then sent me to his assistant's office who proceeded to give me more information about Lasik surgery. I told the assistant again that I need to see a doctor that could diagnose my eye condition. She said Dr Berg doesn't do that. I asked her why I was referred to him in the first place when he only specializes in Lasik. She said when you book through ZocDoc it will automatically make the appointment a Lasik consultation even though I checked that it was an eye medical emergency. She said when I received a confirmation phone call I should have told them what the appointment was for! That was already indicated on ZocDoc and they should have asked me for the information on the phone if they don't pay attention to what the patients write! I told my Optometrist who was just as confused as I was that this doctor would tell them to refer clients to them when they are only interested in potential Lasik patients. What a waste of my time and now I have to wait another 2 weeks to see a different Ophthalmologist. This doctor will only see people who want laser correction surgery!
Good doc, great office. Everything you need.
Dr,. Berg is very friendly and honest.
They got backlogged with a couple of emergencies, but once I was in everything went well.
