Dr. Bergman truly cares about his patients; about who you are, about how you are, and about the best way to treat you. He listens carefully and is always caring in his responses. I feel comfortable and secure that under his care, I am safe.
I posted rave reviews about Dr. Bergman on this site when I began seeing him. Well fortunately for me, I'm still his patient and saw him today. I left his office asking myself, how on earth can this man "get it" so quickly, analyze my situation & heartbreak since I never provided him with complete information that has been ongoing for years --because his practice specializes in psychopharmacology. The only answer I come up with is: Dr. Bergman is a Psychiatrist with impressive credentials & for years prior to specializing in psychopharmacology, had years of experience with analysis & treatments of all mental disorders. I find most in the mental health field incompetent despite their education and professional affiliations. That does not apply to Dr. Bergman! He is exceptionally skilled; and I believe, has an innate gift. I'm not lucky that I need him, but I am very lucky that I was referred to him.
Dr. Bergman is the most fantastic doctor. He is smart, tactful, and deliberate. I trust him with myself, as do many of my family members. He is extremely responsive in a crisis and in general. I could not imagine being treated by someone else. He is wise in his suggestions and helps counsel in tough situations.
In addition to Dr. Bergman's impeccable credentials, he is "skilled" in his field &100% professional. With his succinct & soft-spoken manner he has the ability to skillfully ask questions which targets and quickly gets to the heart of the issue. This is the first time I've left a psychiatrist's office feeling confident that the Dr. isn't behaving in a rote fashion. He cuts right through the unnecessary banter, keeps you directly on point & with kindness. Finally a mental professional that is truly capable & responsive. And no, I am not a friend or relative!
I wish every doctor would be like Dr. Bergman. Some doctors make you wait literally for hours - never Dr. Bergman. His assistants are extremely helpful. Unlike most doctors, you can easily reach him by e-mail & he responds very quickly. He goes out of his way to make getting your prescriptions as easily as possible. He is extremely knowledgeable.
Dr Bergman is very responsive to e mails, has a very competent assistant, and is very knowledgeable about medications. He was very helpful. He is a bit flat in his demeanor which could be interpreted as aloof or non-caring but I don't think he is either, however. Dr Bergman very solid psychiatrist who is a rare MD who accepts many insurance plans. I highly recommend.
The medicine Dr, Bergman gave me did not help and made me gain alot of weight, which was difficult to loose. He complained that I called too much, and he sent me a very nasty letter that he did not want me as a patient any more. A friend of mine did not like him either
