I honestly just appreciated a real conversation with Dr. Berger. It's the small things that go a long way for me, and Dr. Berger displayed those in my moment of curiosity. More appointments to come, but I'm happy with the decision I made to visit Dr. Berger!

Dr Berger was great. Even though he was running behind, he did not act rushed at all, which I appreciate. He listened to my concerns and asked lots of questions. I was able to get X-rays in their office and thereis physical therapy available in the same building, which is very convenient! I'm very happy with my experience at SOAR.

I haven't been to a sports medicine doctor before and therefore don't know if Dr Neal is the best one out there. However, overall it was a very positive experience as there was hardly any wait time and as soon asthe PA was done with asking me basic questions, the doctor was there right away.

Dr. Berger and the staff at SOAR Orthopedics are absolutely terrific! The front desk staff are courteous and attentive and typically the wait is no longer than 15 min. Dr. Berger is very professional yet easy to talk with, communicating ina way that shows respect toward the patient, not just the other way around.

I saw Dr. Berger today regarding my left knee (excruciating) pain. The office is really nice and the receptionist was also very nice. Dr. Berger was really nice and answered all my questions. And I was satisfied with what he thoughtwas wrong. Didn't rush me out at all. Definitely recommend him!! He even draws pictures for you to understand haha

Dr. Berger came across as being very knowledgeable about orthopedics, very concerned about the best course of treatment for my situation and just as important, he presented himself in a humble, genuine manner; not a "god-like" figure on a different level which made me feel very comfortable!

The visit was quick and informal. After diagnosing my problem he prescribed some physical therapy. I haven't had the chance yet to start it as I just saw him a couple days ago. I would recommend.
