I went to Berman for about 15 years and he completely lost touch with his patients. First, he is constantly attached to computers creating a "wall" between him and patients and he has an email address: "iwantmylabresults@...". He prefers email contact and reports your lab results via email. Trouble is if something isn't right (as in my case) he tells you the result without interpretation or treatment plan. When I tried to follow up via phone (I called numerous times), it wasn't until I threatened to report him did the office "find" him (they claimed he wasn't in the office). Thank god for the internet. Second, he prescribed the wrong medication for me because he didn't want to take the time to look up what brand medication I was actually taking. Third, he is constantly pushing his associates on you, even when you don't need or want to see them. One on occasion he even paid my deductible so I would see his new allergy doc. (The insurance company picked up the rest) Fourth, he doesn't keep appointments. I am a business owner and have been forced to wait up to two hours when I had an appointment (they take walk-ins pushing back scheduled patients, won't call if they are running late, and won't let you leave and come back, kicking you out of the queue if you do so). The last time I was inundated with work and rushed, getting to him at the scheduled time. After 45 minutes and still two patients ahead of me, I stormed out. The person before me even complained that she could not sit up in the waiting room any longer and asked for a room to lie down. No wonder his patient load is largely elderly and housewives. Fifth, he bills for procedures never done (more than once) and deductibles that were paid for at the time of treatment. Sixth, his staff does not phone in prescriptions on a timely basis, requiring multiple calls. (They claim they have too many to process in one day...note: if the office is that busy, hire more people!) Finally, he lost his touch in diagnosising...he was great once, On my final visit, I told him he misdiagnosed me (he did), he looked down at me in distain as if a lay person could ever say such a thing. I STAYED BECAUSE IT IS EASIER THAN TO LEAVE...BUT, THIS IS ONE REALLY BAD DOCTOR. AVOID AT ALL COST...YOUR LIFE IS AT STAKE
