Prostate check,urology check but it was awful.Since walking in the front desk was so rude and was making comments with no reason.The blonde one who was pregnant that one should not be there.The doctor just came in to fill out theform asked two questions and he said oh we have to do follow up check ups without even checking the previous paperworks. Honestly very disappointed,do no waste your money and time here.Plus they do charge cash even if you have insurance.

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 hadto 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.

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 ofthe stomach in the first appointment, doctor Berman did not.

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 areno 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.

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 withexcellent 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 standardNYC 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.

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 . Alsoit take couple of days to provide the official stamped invoice. But they promise to mail it to my address. The doctor is expert.

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 explainedclearly 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.
