Verified Patient Reviews
Dr.Berenbaum is very nice and attentive. The nurse at the front desk was very professional, she took her time with me, and answered all my questions. I would highly recommend this office.
I had to fill out paperwork, though i did it through Zocdoc. Nonetheless, the dr took his time to ask me my family history, he listened intently to my concerns, and he is testing me for everything possible. He did more in 15 mins, then drs have done for me in years. I can't wait to go back and get answers that i've been searching for all these years.
My visit was excellent. I had to wait awhile to get in but now I know it is because the doctor meets with patients personally and is incredibly thorough. He asked a lot of questions about my history and really seems to be trying to find the root of the problem. I am loookng forward to going back.
This doctor had a sense of humor, is kind, and attentive. However, he suggested I get a bunch of procedures done without giving me full reasoning as to why. He gave his diagnosis but I thought it was a bit extreme and I was caught off guard because his comments during my examination were so vague and general.
Very thourough. Covered a lot of issues. Hope to continue.
He was always late for my appointments, arrived at the office 45 minutes after my appointment was supposed to begin. After a 30 minute discussion sent me out for about 15 tests. Then when I questioned him about why I was doing this test would not explain. Now I did all of the tests, still don't have what the issue is and now have thousands of dollars of medical bills.
He asked a lot of questions and was very patient also nice. He explained to me why I need to get certain test done for my health and to follow up .
Very great doctor, funny and I do recmand him .
He is bee knowledgable of his profession.

I am very disappointed with this practice. The front desk stuff is very rude, ignorant and unknowledgeable. They did not seem to care about the patients or try to help them.
Very patient and understanding with great bedside manner; very friendly and helpful staff too!
Dr. Berenbaum has an excellent bedside manner. He truly listens and wants to help his patients.
It was a very enlightening and positive experience. I was extremely impressed with his medical knowledge. He displayed a genuine concern about my health and well being upon meeting me for the first time. Dr. Berenbaum was very thorough and concise as we discussed my medical history. I highly recommend this physician.
He is a very nice gentleman but his office needs to be more organized and be able to answer questions. While on the visit was interrupted my secretary asking him to hurry since he was running behind with other appointments.
I believe it was worth the wait. he was very thorough, at tentative, and knowledgeable. didn't jump to conclusions. and the receptionist, Wendy, is awesome.
Only my first of many visits, I am sure, but he has already asked more relevant questions and seems more eager to actually solve my issues than previous doctors.
I waited over 1 hour and 30 minutes past my appointment. Unacceptable
He was very thorough and began a plan immediately. He was a few hours late though.
Very to the point and thorough. Good experience with Dr. Berenbaum overall. He seems to like to err on the safe side, which I like in a doctor.
