Verified Patient Reviews
Dr, Berman is great. I had to speak with him about some pretty serious issues and concerns -- medical, psychological, deeply personal -- and he was compassionate and understanding, super professional, and also very honest and direct. I had to wait for quite a while, and I was on time... but I still highly recommend this doctor, and I will definitely keep him on my medical team. 5 enthusiastic stars for this guy.
This Doc's bedside manner is brutal. Brushed off my issue as nothing, and turns out when you take 120 seconds with a patient and ask no questions you can miss things. I rarely write reviews for anything, but I wasn't pleased with his demeanor.
Wait time is extremely high. Doctor is proficient and straight forward. Staff not so friendly. May repeat just for the sake of doctor.
Dr. Berman was fantastic -- great bedside manner and very informative. Put me immediately at ease. The wait time was the only issue I had with it. Otherwise, it was a good experience all around.
Doctor Berman was professional and solved my problem with confidence.
The doctor seems not so happy today. :)
Made me feel comfortable, relaxed and calmed me, in regards my problem!
I highly recommend Dr. Berman. He is a great doctor
Great very professional clean office. I was seen right away and treated well.
It was my first appointment with him, but he seems very patient and knowledgeable.
I've been seeing Dr Berman for many years. I've always found him to have a great bedside manner-friendly but professional. I have great confidence in his treatments. I would never see anyone else
I think Dr Berman's office was quick efficient and recommend it to anyone.
Loved da service received, will go back
The doctor was helpful but not very friendly at all. Hard to have a convo with in my opinion. He did offer suggestions but was not very pleasant.
Very kind; took his time to explain the findings and what is needed to take care of the situation.
While checkin procedure was good, the long wait time did not impress me being my first visit. And after such a long wait, doctor spent barely 10 minutes for the exam. While other urologist I have visited did the ultrasound of the stomach in the first appointment, doctor Berman did not.
He is simply amazing, and cares so much!!
Very thorough; answers questions; don't feel rushed.
I have had good experiences at Dr. Berman's office. I often am in just for drop off and the staff is always really kind and accommodating. He is to the point yet thorough. I appreciate his help and will continue to go back.
Dr Steven and his staff were very nice and helpful. Steven explained to me everything he did and was patient.
Dr. Berman is highly recommended. I have been seeing him for years and trust him completely.
His attitude toward the visit made me very uncomfortable. He immediately suggested a biopsy and showed no emotion or empathy when I mentioned that there was a danger of infection and bleeding. I told him that two other doctors who are no longer in network had suggested an MRI as a first procedure and I had to argue with him. He told me that an MRI would cost so much it would never be approved and quoted a price more than five times the value that the radiology lab said it would cost. The request for an MRI was denied and my insurance stated that there was no indication that Dr. Berman had made an additional appeal, as his office said they had. Evicore stated that they never received the lav test that I had emailed to Dr. Berman's office. I do not feel that there was any sort of interest in taking care of me. I have never before complained about the care I have received by a physician, but I felt this was a horrible experience.
Very comfortable and knowledgeable doctor. The wait of 1:30hr was aggravating.
Great experience other than a very long wait time.
Good experience , staff was polite and effient and knowable (a plus) as for DR Berman he was very professional . Office in general was clean as well as the bathrooms . David Berger
Dr. Berman is very straight to the point. If you don't need to be comforted and want a provider that will get you in and out, he is your guy. Did a good job and no complaints and would recommend him.
I've been seeing Dr. Berman for several months now for two separate conditions and am very satisfied with his treatment. I find him to be thorough, friendly but efficient/no nonsense and I trust his judgement. He performed surgery on me with excellent results. His staff are always friendly and helpful. Office is clean, has large waiting area and free candy at the front desk!
I'm not sure I would see Dr Berman again, my appointment was pretty frustrating. It felt like he was just ticking boxes and was rushed to get in and out. The rest of the experience was also just ok, pretty standard NYC doctors office stuff. Took a while to get seen, was left sitting in the room after the nurse took my vitals for about 30 minutes. Had to fill out a million forms after i'd already filled them out on ZocDoc etc etc. I would probably go back if I had no other options, but i'm certainly not in a hurry.
Great and knowledgeable doctor. Girls at the reception as well as the nurse were kind and very helpful - my appointment didnt go through Zocdoc to their system, but they helped me arrange an appt with the doctor right away. Everything was great, would definitely come again - keep doing the good job!
Very professional and helpful
It was a good visit. The personnel at the center is very friendly and competent. The doctor visit itself was fast and clear.
He was clear in his explanations, not rushed. I was completely satisfied with his examination and conclusions.
Very professional and thorough, answered all my questions and had good advice
He was great !!!!
Professional, informed, allows patients to ask questions and he gives through explanation. Overall, great doc.
I literally had to wait an hour and 20 minutes to be seen. You'd have to be insane to come here.
Doctor Berman was very professional and pleasant. He took the time to get to know my medical history and address my concerns.I walked away feeling confident.
Doctor is serious and professional. . He is reading .. give you good chance to talk .. listening And he is on the point. Only issues is the waiting time and too much forms you need to fill out . Also it take couple of days to provide the official stamped invoice. But they promise to mail it to my address. The doctor is expert.
First consultation/appointment with Dr. Berman for a urinary issue. Staff, nurse and Dr. Berman displayed professionalism and competence in their work. A lab was adjacent to their office which was very convenient for having blood work completed. following the appointment.
Office was busy but efficient. Front desk staff was pleasant. Doctor was kind, thorough and obviously knowledgeable. I needed surgery and that was set up during my first appointment. Everything regarding my condition and surgery was explained clearly and was not rushed. I spoke to the surgical secretary on numerous occasions and she was very nice and always helpful. When I did have surgery it went perfectly and I could not be happier with the results.
Dr. Berman was straight and to the point. Very reassuring
Though quite some time ago, this visit with Dr. Berman was very good. He was able to run the tests that were required per the diagnosis and explained the results well. I'd recommend him and his team and would use them again.
Awesome doctor - positive attitude and well informed..!!
Dr. Berman seemed direct, honest, and to the point, which I appreciated.
Worth the wait, excellent doctor. Personally called me with test results on two occasions. Highly recommended
Dr. Berman was stoic, initially, but began to warm up and become more personable as the appt. moved along.
Excellent Doctor and a very polite and helpful staff.
The wait time was so fast and the staff were very nice. The doctor was very kind and thorough.
Doctor Bergman genuinely wanted to understand what my issue was and made solving my problem so easy. Whereas, I went to another urologist that put me through the ringer for a common diagnosis. He listened to what I had to say, provided me with a solution and encouraged me to check back with him whenever necessary. I really felt taken care of am by Doctor Bergman. Highly, highly recommend.
Dr. Berman was incredibly nice, and his staff was courteous and quick. Highly recommend.
Dr. Berman is always extremely efficient and gives excellent care. His staff is also very friendly and very efficient. I am always completely satisfied with my visits!
Intelligent, considerate, professional, and helpful. Listened to what I had to say. Took the time to hear my concerns and to examine me. Great experience.
Efficient, but not the most personable of doctors. But then, how personable can a urologist be, having to spend most of his day examining the sagging butts of aging men with prostate issues?
Doctor was awful! Was just baffled by the lack of effort.
The visit went well, Wait time was about 35 minutes. The doctor listened to everything I had to say. Evaluated me and recommended the proper solution.
This was a great visit. I read the negative reviews and was prepared for a business-like bedside manner but Dr. Berman was warm, personable and thorough. I highly recommend him.
Very professional. Direct discussion. Efficient with time. Instills confidence in his capability and knowledge.
Doctor listen to all my concerns and gave me feedback I was looking for. I am satisfied with my visit.
Very professional,kept me up to date on all aspects of my treatment.Have recommended him to a family friend.
Amazing environment and privacy!
Dr. Berman was kind to me during my appointment. He was very professional in his examination and in asking me questions. Although he was unable to help me with my problem as the issue isn't physical, he provided me with excellent advice as to how I can address my problem.
Staff was courteous and wait was relatively short. Dr. listened to my concerns and was not quick to prescribe medications, as so many are!
Dr. Berman is an old-school physician with a vast amount of knowledge and expertise. He figured out what was wrong in minutes and suggested the right steps to fix it. Just as it should be - Thanks, Dr. Berman!
So far, so good!
He is great doctor......
The staff was very friendly. Visit went smoothly and doctor was direct and to the point.
Dr.Berman is a cool guy and very helpful.
Very nice and professional. Would recommend
Super courteous, professional and timely. Right to the point and very understanding. Knows his stuff and is very knowledgeable about his field!
Very knowledgeable, took the time to explain everything.
I have seen Dr Berman 3-4 times. He is always patient with my questions, honest with the difference between diagnoses and opinions, and knowledgeable. On 2 occasions, he called me on the weekend, just to update me with reassuring test results, as soon as he had them. Strongly recommend Dr Berman.
His "bedside manner" was just cold and disheartening. It seemed he just wanted to line me up for more procedures and could not be bothered answering my questions except to try to scare me to do more tests. I will never go back again. Perhaps it is the nature of his profession that he must be detached but there is a feeling when you are there that you are as nothing to him and he is without any emotion or compassion. I have moved to another urologist who is human. Dr Berman is not.
Personnel very friendly and Dr. Berman very professional.
Doctor was running at least an hour late so I rescheduled and left. I've known him to run more than two hours late. He's a very good doctor but the office is impossible.
Very nice. Thorough.
Very patient - answered every question.
The staff were both professional and courteous while the wait time was very short, while the office atmosphere was quite pleasant. I found Dr Berman to be quite professional, personable and direct. I would absolutely highly recommend him.
Very helpful, was seen quickly and told what I needed to know. Instant treatment. Thanks!
Visit was fine....really just got a "I don't care" vibe from everyone I was in contact with.
Professional and knowledgeable!
Very professional and straightforward, basically everything you could want from a Dr. I`ll be going to see him again.
If describe him as being like the grim reaper. Doesn't crack a smile. Very clinical. I'd hate to get bad news from him. That being said, he is thorough.
Not the greatest bedside manner but very knowledgable and thorough.
Honestly, a joke.
EXCELENT DOCTOR I WILL RECOMENT IT THANK YOU
The treatment was fine but I had to wait for more than one moth for test results and still i DON'T have them
I was expecting a more thorough check up, perhaps a sonogram of the pelvic, since I have been having pain and discomfort of the right side of the pelvic area. I dont know what will be next or who to go see. I feel like I am back to square one. I have to wait for the urine test results and I signed to HIPA for the hospital to release the info of the ct scan.
Waited two hours to see the doctor. Once I did, he brushed off my questions, rushed me out of the office, and minimized my concerns. Terrible doctor and I was in a very worrying situation.
Great office great doctor.
Great doctor. Very professional. Made what could have been an awkward doctor's visit very stress free.
Very knowledgeable, highly experienced and a very nice man.
Doctor is patient and professional. Answered all the questions i had with a friendly attitude. I had a bit of a wait, but nothing like what was described in other reviews. It was more or less the wait time i've come to expect when going to pretty much any doctor.
He did a nice job of explaining his thought process to me and he spent quite a bit of time to make sure i understood everything.
Not very impressed with staff or doctor, especially given long wait and records confusion. I recommend to go elsewhere for your medical care.
Long wait time, despite the fact that I showed up early. Staff was friendly. Doctor was deadpan.
Very nice and professional. Highly recommended! The staff at the office were great too
Difficult to get test results back in a timely manner from the front office.
Doctor Berman was very helpful; he explained his diagnosis in a clear way.
I think Dr. Berman is a wonderful doctor but he works in an awful office. It's not unusual to wait well over an hour, sometimes for two hours, before a scheduled appointment and the office staff is unable (or unwilling) to provide explanations or estimated times. The lab next door, where blood is drawn, is brutal. I've often left that office thinking about never returning.
Poor interpersonal skills.
Very nice person, polite, and listens
Pleasant and thorough. Really happy with with Dr. Berman.
Dr. Berman is great.
Very professional, treated me as a patient, unlike former doctors who ordered unnecessary tests without fully surveying the information presented - Office staff was very friendly/
He is smart but he rushes his patients. It was difficult to talk to him. He is all about business not so much medicine.
The office staff was knowledgeable, professional and friendly. The doctor listened carefully and was helpful. He gave me good suggestions that were none invasive and easy to do. He made a referral for a special exam. I felt comfortable and will return.
Awesome doctor, great staff. He listened well, explained things well, took the time at the end to ask me if I had any other questions, and answered them slowly and carefully. I will return to this doctor, and I recommend him highly highly.
Dr. Berman is a true professional that knows his field. I highly recommend Dr. Berman.
Wonderful. Fantastic art collection as well.
The interaction with him and his staff was efficient , positive and stress-free. This alone promotes healing.
Efficient, professional, personable.
Efficient and professional.
impersonal - barely looked at me in the face had to wait an hour and a half almost Diagnostic skills seemed great though
professional. he is very focused, if you ask him a question you will get a good explanation. but you will have to ask.
The doctor is great and was very helpful. I was only a bit disappointed with the wait time.
Very professional and offers a lot of feedback.
Efficient and professional
Very thoughtful, great bedside manner.
First visit so I cannot probably give a fair assessment. Correct and to the point, empathy doesn't seem to be his best strength though.
Very friendly staff, efficient, and organized.
This guy is the man. Highly recommend.
