I came in with a clogged ear, the procedure to remove it was unpleasant, but that's probably unavoidable. I walked out in less than 30 minutes with my issue completely resolved.

I think he's a good doctor. I've been to him before. Sometimes I wait, sometimes I don't. Something that was very frustrating today was that I arrived at my appointment time and another woman arrived a moment before me but herappointment was 15 mins later than mine. She was seen before me. That pissed me off. Other offices will go by who's appointment was first as opposed to who arrives first. Next time, I will arrive earlier so I can be seen earlier. That was very annoying as I wasn't seen until an hour after my appointment.

I had a 2:00 PM appointment and waited for more than 1 hour before seeing the Doctor. I would not mind except I was taking time from my workday to make this visit. As for Doctor Berg, we did not spendmuch time together maybe because my issues were not severe, but I found him quite personable, calm and seemingly patient, the kind of Doctor you would not hesitate to discuss your issues with. The office staff was also very pleasant.

I wasn't happy with the long wait an hour. There is plenty of reading material in the office, which might suggest that this happens frequently. The staff were nice, the doctor a pleasant professional individual. I wasn't happy that he couldn'tfind the problem with the ringing in my ears, which gets worse daily. Only suggested a hearing test, when I hear clearly.
