Dr. Berent has been my physician for probably 15 years. Even though I now live 35 miles away from Austin, I keep coming to him because he's sharp, honest, listens to my issues, and his diagnoses have been correct for my issues. He's willing to offer practical solutions, such as exercises and diet recommendations that may avoid future problems. His focus is on quality and not quantity. Give him a call! Judy H

I haven't seen a primary care Doctor in years, but after having a few symptoms l went in to see Dr. Berent. He was very friendly and easy to talk to. I'm a bit of a hypochondriac, but he was able to ease my mind and give me suggestions on how to alleviate the problems I was having. Would definitely recommend him!

He seemed disinterested, like he couldn't understand why I brought my son in to see him. He referred him to a dermatologist. His office was also very difficult to find.

Both times that I have seen this doctor, he had absolutely no respect for what I was telling him. I have found him very rude and will not see him again. My concerns were also confirmed when I got a second opinion from a different doctor.

Told me to get an xray of my ribs which I later figured out was EXTREMELY unreasonable and unprofessional due to the radiation received for the Xrays in the ab area and given I had no sharp pain in my ribs to call for it. Next doctor said he should have told me to get an ultrasound and that rib xray would have been the last option because the radiation. Dr. Craig didnt even tell me that was an option or thats what I should do. Incredible. Thanks for pointless radiation doc. Hope it doesn’t increase my chances of cancer because your negligent practice. Why didn’t you just tell me to get an ultrasound?

I normally don't write reviews, but this one is a must. I will NEVER see this doctor again. He is judgmental and VERY impatience. As a person like myself that doesn't like going to the doctors, you would at least expect the doctor to care to SOME degree about your well being and establish some type of comfort. No not with Dr. Berent. I receive none of that. Now don't get me wrong, I'm not saying I need a hug or a pat on the back, but my goodness Dr. Berent barely even answer the questioned I asked and if he did, they were all one to two worded unclear responses. On the judgmental comment, I went in to get tested as I always do every six months. The first words out of Dr. Berent mouth as he walked in was "So I see we still are not practicing safe sex". wow or maybe I just like the peace of mind knowing I'm clean, great assumption "Doctor". On the Impatience comment. My appointment was at 11:15, it was very clear he was in a rush to finish and I guess go to lunch because once he finished and left. I remember a followed up question that he didn't answer while he was in there. This "doctor" comes back in and with the gesture's of pointing at his watch and basically telling me to hurry up so that he can get back to whatever he was doing, he again answers my question with a one worded response. Mind you, there was nobody else in the lobby, so its not like he had 15 people waiting on him. I just couldn't believe the nerve of this doctor. His nurse isn't any better, she forever has an attitude. My bad, I didn't make you pick that job. So sorry to be a burden on you. I would NOT recommend this doctor to anybody, especially people in my age group of late 20's. What a joke.

Dr. Berent himself was great. He seemed attentive and wanted to tackle the issue I was dealing with. However, the nurse and secretary/clerk were rude, cold, and it took us calling them multiple times to get simple lab results well over a week after the labs were drawn. When calling to ask questions, the answer was always "the nurse will call you tomorrow," (which was rarely true) or there was no answer at all. My wife had to go to the ER for her condition, and when trying to contact Dr. Berent's office to follow up, we got no response. Basically, Dr. Berent seems to care and has good bedside manner, but the office as a whole is not pleasant or easy to interact with. I recommend looking elsewhere.

I felt that my appointment was rushed and my concerns were overlooked. I trusted some reviews I had seen before following through with three different appointments. Going to other doctors now. Maybe I caught Dr. Berent on a slew of bad days, but I would not recommend him to friends or family.

I really like how professional, yet inviting Dr. Berent is. He treated me with respect as a patient, and I could tell he had my well-being in mind. Not only that, his office staff was very quick to process my new patient paperwork, and I was in and out in under an hour. I will definitely be coming back!
