    Dr. Berman was great. Listened and responded to each of my concerns. Very engaged in the dialogue and professionally direct with her projection of how long my cough may linger. I really appreciate Dr. Berman's bedside manner.

    Most of the conversation felt like a power struggle. First she tried to talk me out of the medication which I've been taking in infinitesimally small doses for 40 years. Then she tried to talk me into another medication that I do not handle well. And then she only filled the prescription for half the number I usually get because "She had never seen me before" which which seemed it relevant since she must've had access to my medical records and could see that my provider has indeed seen me before and consistently refilled with no problems. A disappointing experience to say the least.

    I have so much ongoing medical including cancer survivorship. Dr. Berman coordinates so much for me. Also she doesn't overstep and allows my specialists to order then manage ongoing medical that Is "above her pay grade" she says. She is also interested in my psychological and emotional well-being and is easy to open up to when mentioning difficult topics. Thank-you Dr. Berman!

    Dr. Berman has been juggling all sorts of various ongoing medical challenges for me keeping track of so much! I would Not be able to access the care I have been receiving if it weren't for all her assistance and the referrals to other UCSF clinics that I follow with. She super kind attentive caring and a top notch wonderful doctor with an absolutely positive helpful attitude. I have so much gratitude for having Rebecca Berman as my PCP!
