Good visit. Trust Dr. Berman & his expertise.

January 10, 2020 10:02 AM

Excellent doctor!!!

January 8, 2020 6:40 AM

Did not return calls even though asked us to call if we did not hear from him by specified date.

May 6, 2019 7:00 PM

I often feel like we leave the appt. feeling like we need to go right back in with questions. I feel like we often leave and have questions after a minute of leaving.

February 20, 2019 6:00 PM

We love Dr. Berman - so kind and knowledgeable. He's made dealing with my son's Crohn's disease bearable.

November 26, 2018 6:00 PM

Provider was knowledgeable, thorough, detailed.

October 3, 2018 7:00 PM

Provider rescheduled last minute and then was 'stuck in traffic.' I had to wait an hour with my 2yo. before being seen. Provider then asked twice why in the world would we be sent to him. Very frustrating. He was excellent with my son.

September 25, 2018 7:00 PM

Great, knowledgeable doctor!

August 8, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Berman is very personable and I like that he talks to the patient as much as to the parent.

August 6, 2018 7:00 PM

It was good

July 25, 2018 7:00 PM

He was very kind and thoughtful. A very good ER doctor.

July 18, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Berman was a very nice doctor. My child is shy and he went out of his way to make him feel welcome & comfortable.

July 13, 2018 7:00 PM

Initially, I did not like the way the provider was treating me nor was he respecting what I had to say until he went to see my son's pediatrician Dr. Vyas, then the provider changed his attitude.
