Great staff! Dr. Berman was polite and efficient.
Fast and efficient!
Doctor was very good. Everybody at the clinic was very attentive and helpful. I would certainly recommend this doctor and the clinic.
Great visit - he clearly knows his stuff and was able to quickly address all of my concerns!
Direct and to the point. Dr Berman had me diagnosed within a minute or two. He answered all of my questions and spent nearly 30 minutes with me.
VERY short visit, the doctor didn't spend more than 5 minutes with me The doctor didn't take the time to listen to what I had and my history with it Finally, during my appointment, the doctor told me that he would give 2 different types of cream. When I arrived to get my prescription, only one was there, and I had to call the office to ask for the second one. At that time, they told me that I should use only one type of cream for both uses, zero credibility I will never come to this office again
Dr. Berman is a great doctor! Very thorough, concise, and to the point. Explained everything to me I needed to know, and I was on my way before I knew it! I have found my new dermatologist!
Dr. Berman was very nice. I had a ton of questions and he answered them all. Great office and nice staff. I will definitely be back. Highly recommended.
Really bad doctor. spent about 2 minutes with me and didn't answer any of my questions. he took a phone call during my appointment. I had to wait for a really long time.
Thoughtful. Thorough. Took good care and added resources that were helpful.
Just as others have commented, Dr Berman is extremely brisk. You can look at it both ways, some may say that he's not attentive enough and isn't listening to what you have to say, but others may find him extremely efficient. I fall into the latter category so I would definitely come back again if I ever need to. I am extremely busy so I appreciate that he can diagnose my issues within 2 minutes and I'm out. The lady who was helping him out was extremely nice too.
He obviously didn't listen to his nurse that I briefed nor read about why I was there. He was very pushy, seemed to be annoyed and rush thru my visit, asap.
Dr Berman was professional and efficient, most appreciated.
Staff was great. Dr. Berman was really nice.
Dr. Bergman was cordial but I felt the visit was hurried and he was ready to perform Juvederm filler for my under eyes dark circles concern. I'm thankful that I decided not to do so...
Nice man, professional and knowledgeable
Dr. Berman & staff were friendly, professional & thoughtful to my needs, questions and concerns. I wish they'd have a payment plan option, so I would be better able to afford their services.
just didn't seem very thorough
I had botox and am waiting for the results to show in the next few days. The office was clean and professional; the staff was courteous and friendly. The doctor was chatty and advised me on other cosmetic procedures that might be helpful, but did not push it on me.
Seemed good and professional. I needed to see a specialist immediately and he had a slot available but he probably had other patients waiting causing some delay. But I was happy with his service, hopefully the follow ups would be better.
He rushed me, and obviously did not take the time to listen to me outline my concerns. I think I spent about 45 minutes in his office - less than 10 were in his presence. He was okay, but I would definitely not recommend him to others.
Visit was great. Staff very courteous and helpful; short wait time and Dr. Berman spent lots of time with me talking to me about my concerns.
He literally spent about 60 seconds with me. Glanced at my acne, wrote a script, and left. I got zero instructions on how to use my medications, and wasn't given any time to ask questions.
Easy-going and calm in the exam room and very helpful assistants.
Dr Berman was professional, friendly and willing to listen to what I had to say. His office staff was gracious and efficient. Great experience all around
It was great. It didn't feel awkward, I was well treated by the staff and by the Dr. The examination was quick and to the point. I felt like the Dr. was competent in his knowledge and he didn't waste my time. I was in and out of there in no time. I would highly recommend Dr. Berman for a skin consultation.
Really pleasant and proficient!
He is very thorough.
He was good, but didn't explain much. The staff was nice and attentive, but he didn't read anything about me prior to walking into the room. It showed.
It was great
Dr. Berman convienced me to do Juvuderm injection in the under eye area which caused permanent inflammation. When I came to him with this problem he said that it was not his fault it's just a coincidence. It' s very irresponsible for the doctor to not admit that he did something wrong and to refuse help.
Great. Enjoyed each person I spoke to in the office beginning at the check in desk.
Extremely knowledgable and experienced. Great explanations.
Was a great visit ,nice guy knew what he was doing , i didn't feel a thing !
Great advice, quick, no wait.
Very professional, kind and efficient. I will recommend Dr Berman and his office to everyone.
