*Dr. Berger was very friendly and easy to talk with. He also helped make my decision to not have surgery an easy one. He wasn't pushing me to the operating table unnecessarily.

Exceptional! The doctor ensured we were well informed about any surgery and as best anyone could provide details, they made sure you were well informed about any possible problems with surgery - Warm and very caring.
