Yvonne at the front desk is rude and kept saying “I don’t know.” She wasn’t helpful at all, decided to call me with questions 1 hour prior to appointment when I had scheduled the appointment 3 business days before, and shehad a rude tone the entire time. Dr. Berger wasn’t much better. I came for a yearly physical and all they did was check my BP.

Quaint little office. Can't say my experience was very thorough as I only saw him once for a general health concern, but the experience was great throughout. Great bedside manner and a jolly professional. Also uses this cool text to speech program.

Best experience I have had with a Dr for as long as I can remember. Got me in even before my appointment since I got there a bit early and he spent much more time with me than anticipated. Very pleased!

I have more of an issue with ZocDoc, if I fill out paperwork over ZocDoc, it sucks to have to do it again in the office.

He didn't really listen to what my problems were, I've been diagnosed with ADHD since I was a kid and have had Adderall prescriptions in the past. He is an anti-drug doctor. He would not refill or resub my prescription forsomething I've had for 6 years. Also, I've had horrible back pain from sitting while working, and he wouldn't give me anything for the pain would only refer me to a physical therapist. Nice guy, timely, professional, but didn't listen to what I needed.

The receptionist, the nurse ,the doctor all were very friendly, efficient and professionel. Made me feel safe and confident. The atmosphere of the office is relaxed. Doctor Berger is what you expect a doctor to be.He actually listened and althoughthe consultation was not very long, I didn`t feel rushed. I highly recommend this doctor. I have to mention that his staff has been with him for 15 to 25 years and they still look happy...I think that says a lot!
