Again I am describing the excellent intern I saw before I saw Dr. Berger

Nothing about follow up care until I asked. They changed what was performed from the previous appointment without consulting with me at all.

I was prescribed pregabalin which will take a few weeks to help my itch. I was referred to a specialist for future spinal injections and need to show her my two MRI discs.

Dr. Berger is the first doctor I have had that actually understands what my condition is... I have seen approx. 5 Doctors in the Kaiser system that just moved me along from one doctor to another as they had no idea what I have.

i have the utmost confidence and respect for Dr. Berger. He has steadfastly supported me through the ongoing treatment of my neuropathic pruritus.

I had a biopsy done months ago and was diagnosed with malassezia that itches. There is a lot of itching on my back but elsewhere as well. Dr. Tim Berger wants me to have a MR Cervical Spine without contrast test at the radiology building across the street. He suggested I may have a pinched nerve in my neck when I have NO NECK OR BACK PAIN. Nerve damage can cause itching but I was already diagnosed with malassezia.

it was my first visit and they were very thorough listened well and asked questions talked a lot about what they thought the dx was testing options proposed treatment etc. Very impressed with the quality of care.

I was very impressed with Dr. Berger. I have been told by one of his students now my doctor that he was the leading hive specialist in the world. He did not disappoint me or my husband. He was very informed and calmly and efficiently advised us as to how to proceed. I felt comfortable and confident in following his suggestions with my other physician near my home and if necessary I would contact him again.

unacceptable pain Level with foot injection. should have done under sedation. I will not allow a follow up procedure to be done without sedation. see other comments.

This includes both Dr. Berger and the resident who did the medical history.

Dr. Berger is the most knowledgeable dermatologist I have met. He is always professional respectful and polite. He explains issues in a very easy to understand manner. I learn something new about my condition or medication every time I see him.

It took me a long time to get to the office and to take time out of my schedule to see Dr. Berger. He did not greet me when he came into the examination room I said hi to him. He used words that were unfamiliar and I had to keep asking him to explain. He seemed very relaxed and not interested in me at all. Maybe it's because I'm a woman or maybe because I'm young. Nevertheless that is unacceptable bedside manor. He tried to leave the room when I wasn't done answering my questions and he seemed uninterested in the further questions I asked. I am on an injectible medication and both the assistant and the doctor did NOT give me clear instructions on how to do the injection. It seemed clear to me that he needs a refresher on bedside manor and how to talk to people who do not come from a medic background.

Provider ordered a treatment that required insurance pre-auth. Nothing was sent to my insurance for 3 months after appt. I sent 2 messages to my provider asking about pre-auth status and called office twice. In the end I had to make another appt so that provider can try the pre-auth again. Since residents handle the rx'es and pre-auths specifics and we see a different resident per visit very easy for these things to fall through the cracks. Provider is world-class for my condition however and trustworthy. I recommend this provider to others with my condition across the country. Not many understand the neurological basis of "dermatology" conditions like neuropathic itch neurogenic rosacea and erythromelalgia yet this provider does and is a gem for guidance. Is aware of what is known what he speculates and what is unknown - but his hunch is usually right.

Dr. Berger is a fantastic dermatologist. He is an expert and he inspires confidence in his treatment plans.

Dr. Berger might be the best doctor I have seen. Friendly hard working focused knowledgeable and smart. He clearly enjoys working with his "students" and I enjoyed seeing them interact together.

Dr. Berger educates like no other physician about my skin allergy issue. He offered me websites and medicine to read about to learn more about my condition. I was very satisfied with his direction and guidance. my problem is far from resolved but I am much more informed.

Dr. Berger listened to my concerns and questions with the respect one shows an equal a welcome characteristic in a healthcare provider.
