14/06/14 3 3 1 3 been going for three months to him. I have on going back issues and now just recently injured it more. I have explained to him that i can not stop working or food doesnt get on the table, and I can barely walk so i need something for the pain. He looked at me as if I was one of the dirt bags hanging around at the skytrain and told me to go to the ER, hes not giving me OXY. I didnt even mention a specific drug.I said im in pain and can not stop working. after that I was a junkie. I also take anxiety meds and need to have the doses upped. First off he did know who prescribed me the original meds( he did, hes the only dr i have seen in 11 years) How can dr bergman not see the when hes looking right at a computer screen? then before leaving with no solution to anything again, i had to remind him what about the anxiety meds? He prescribed the exact doses as before. I walked like a cripple out of the office. I wont be returning, and the 3 people i referred wont be either......  Respond

23/10/12 5 2 5 5 I have to agree with the wait time. If you are seeing Dr. Bergman, make sure you allow for at least 3 hours after arrival time. Trust me, it is worth the wait! He is so great with kids, sooo great. He distracted and put my nervous 4 year old daughter at ease, took the time to ask every question, and answer every question. He did have an intern with him while we were there, but by no means was unattentive. He managed the appointment, and explained things to her, which was only a benefit to me. He diagnosed my daughter's food allergies and gave me a feasible game plan. I find it acceptable that I waited so long, because he spent the time required with us to make us feel like my daughter was truly important. A great doctor!!  Respond

01/03/12 3 2 2 2 we took our 3 year old son to see dr. bergman because his ezcema covered his upper body. altho we already had allergy testing done from our naturopath, we wanted him to look at it.my complaint about dr.bergman is that even tho we showed him the food allergy results, gluten being extremely high, he basically disregarded it. he said ezcema is not usually caused from a food allergy (btw- ezcema is almost always caused from a food allergy) and that it was likely "someting in the air". that is ridiculous. i know he cant make money if we all know this and go straight to a naturopath for testing, but its dis-heartning to know that he's only giving people cream to mask the symptom and not getting to the root of the issue. my son hasnt had gluten for 11 days and his ezcema is almost totally gone.  Respond

05/12/11 5 4 5 5 He is extremely thorough and answers all your questions. We saw him for my children's eczema and I later requested him for allergies because he was so good. Yes, there is sometimes a wait, but only because he really takes the time to explain things to patients and to answer questions. He is great with kids, too.  Respond

20/01/10 4 3 5 5 I found that although Dr. Bergman is sometimes very busy, he does take the time to sit down and answer questions. He is very good with children and has a nice way with my daughter. Unlike some other doctors I know, I find that he is quite caring and is looking out for my family's best interests.  Respond

26/10/09 3 1 3 4 No apology for being late and he was REALLY late which is killer when you are dealing with a kid my son's age (2.) A likeable guy but he had students ask all the questions, so not too sure about his asssessment since he didn't verify any details.  Respond

16/09/09 1 2 2 3 my 8 month old son has a rash all over his body and needed to get a biopsy. i took him back for a follow up and i mentioned that the biopsy site was infected he said it was not. 2 days later i had to take him to the er cause it was quite infected. was told the biopsy results would be ready after a week. after 3 weeks and 2 weeks of calling him non stop i still haven't gotten any response. i was told he had gotten my messages but just had chosen not to respond. when i had left messages i stressed that my son is having serious problems (loosing a pound a week and undersized in other areas) and still no response. TOTALLY UNPROFESSIONAL!  Respond

16/09/09 4 4 2 3 Tested my daughter for life threatening allergies - did not write or forward explanatory letter to my family doctor, who could only tell me that the values were out of range. Had to chase him down to get the letter - turns out she did need to carry the epi-pen. I think that he should have called us as well about the findings. Nice guy, poor follow through in this case.  Respond

08/07/09 2 5 3 4 I feel uneasy about this doctor. He barely looked up from his paperwork while my son and I were in his office. I pointed out hives that my son devloped while there and was ignored. I don't think this doctor gave us his full attention, I will be seeking out a second opinion.  Respond

18/04/09 5 5 5 5 Best Dr I have ever been to. He helped our family tremedously with our daughters so called allergies. She does not have allergies or asthma!!! My daughter was seen by Dr. Coates and we were given a list of all the things she was allergic to and 1 yr later I wanted a second opinion, we were lucky enough to find Dr. Bergman and he did the skin prick testing and she has NO allergies. He is GREAT with children...my daughter loved him even after the skin prick test!!! I would definately reccomend Dr Bergman!  Respond
