The focus is on the money and not the patient. Its definitely a cattle call process. I would never recommend this for someone who wants to be treated as an individual and not a number.

The office staff isn't rude, but they aren't nice either. As a health professional myself, I know it can be done better. If you have other options for a doctor go somewhere else. I have had to wait over 30 minutes, or up to an hour for multiple appointments.

I'm an 88 year old lady and my son called beforehand to see if they would accept Medicare insurance and they said yes and they told my son there would be no out of pocket expenses . But after waiting for 2 hours and finally getting in the woman came in patient room to demand full payment without accepting Medicare. I have nightmares about this office visit . The office staff thinks they are entitled and have a really condescending attitude towards the patients.

Apparently they were behind, but I still wasn't pleased. When I walked in I said hello and the nurse ignored me. I realized the sign that read sign in and well be right with you, but still she couldn't even say hello? Besides that I basically had to wait 2 hours to be told I needed an MRI. I haven't decided if I will be going back after I get the MRI.

I had speculated that I had sprained my ankle, and so the doctor 'took my word for it' and prescribed something based off of my guess about what was wrong with my ankle. The wait room was packed with people whose appointments had been slated to begin 30 minutes prior to my arrival at the office. It was a very awkward, unprofessional, uneducating trip to a doctor, where I walked (or limped) away from the appointment not knowing a thing more than I did when I limped in, and I will not be returning.

I generally don't give reviews especially if it not positive but I was quite disappointed with the service I received . I was kept waiting for over an hour and the doctor probably spent 10 mins at the most on my feet . I have been going to podiatrists for many years and I left this one feeling very shortchanged .

On my first visit I was a bit overwhelmed with how many people were being seen and how long the wait time was, usually I would have left and scheduled somewhere else but considering how many people was trying to see this doctor I thought to see what he was all about. I was not at all disappointed he answered all of my questions and was very nice I would definitely recommend him.

Dr. Berkey was very personable and got right to work diagnosing the reason for my foot pain. He then explained in detail how the injury probably occurred and the way he felt would be best to treat it and why. While I am sad that my running is sidelined for a few weeks, I left feeling like I had had a comprehensive exam, and the best care possible. Also, the office staff and x-ray technician were all very nice.

The doctor was great. The wait time between my X-ray and when he came back into the room was at least 30 minutes. . He did have a lot of people in the office, so I think he just fell behind.

I arrived 15 minutes early to my appointment to have an enough time to fill out my paperwork but I still ended up waiting over 45 minutes AFTER my scheduled appointment time to be seen. The office was packed with people there was no where to sit, the receptionist was rude (closing the window while I was still talking to her), they called several patients back and kept skipping me, and the doctor saw me for about 5 minutes and sent me on my way. Would not recommend this podiatrist office.

I thought Dr. Berkey was great!! I did not encounter any problems w/office personnel neither. I thought that everyone was very nice. Dr. Berkey's bedside manner was excellent. He answered all my questions, understood my problems. Diagnosed me, explained everything thoroughly and even scheduled me for surgery next week. Which is exactly what I wanted b/c I do not want my feet to hurt at all!! Highy recommend!
