Ratings for Dr. Gary S. Berger
I had my TR almost 10 years ago. I was told my incision could be as small as a quarter. In recovery I discovered that my entire bikini C-section scar had been re-opened. I was told that I had between 50-70% chance of conceiving with 8 cm and 6 cm of healthy tube remaining after the surgery. After nearly 10 years of trying to conceive I was never pregnant even once after my TR. I realized long ago that the surgery had been a failure and was unwilling to spend any more time or money on a losing cause. I just recently had a hysterectomy and discovered the cause of all of my increasing painful periods and just in general pain throughout my cycle was caused by both my tubes being adhered to both my ovaries, and my uterus being adhered to most everything. Considering that the last surgery I had prior to my hysterectomy was with yours truly, Dr. Berger and company, I would consider that to be a major failure on their part. Both tubes were glued to their respective ovary in a club. Not exactly the "successful" reversal reported to me in the recovery room of Chapel Hill. I was misinformed on multiple occasions by this facility. Post-Op care is non-existent. The only thing they are interested in is your money, first of all, and your successful pregnancy as a bonus. My advice is to find a more truthful, more holistically considerate facility to spend your money and your hopes on.
I had my TR in 2009. Dr. Berger told DH and myself that we had a very high chance of becoming pregnant. After 6 yrs we have had no luck! When he looked at my preoperative report I was told I had well over 7cm of healthy tube left on both sides. After my reversal I was left with only one tube :-( 1cm in length....during my visit with him before the reversal as we were sitting in his office he was more interested in his computer then talking to us about the procedure!! If I would have know all this b4 I did the reversal I would have chose not to go to Dr. Berger for my reversal!! Would have saved myself 6,500 dollars! The staff at chapel hill were absolutely amazing :-) only good thing I have to say about this place.
I had my essure reverse sep 2012 I conceived December 2012 went on birth control for a year after my daughters birth now one month without birth control and I'm pregnant once again thanks to Dr.Berger we are extremely happy and our family keeps growing
I want to start by saying that I was a patient that was told my success was extremely high and that Dr. Berger assured my DH and I that we would have no problem conceiving. I had my TR a little over 2 yrs ago. After having an HSG to find out if my tubes were blocked and being told they were both indeed blocked, I mailed my images to Dr. Berger. After 3 or 4 days of waiting, Dr. Berger emailed me to confirm that my tubes were blocked and he couldn't explain to me why that would happen. Yet, he offered to charge me another $4000 to correct the problem. After responding to Dr. Berger with a question and no reply I have decided that they are only willing to communicate when its good news. I am very upset by they fact that my DH and I wasted so much money and time on something that wasn't successful from the beginning and the way we were offered to correct this is to charge us again! I've heard other ladies saying that there doctors corrected the problem at no cost to the customer.
I had my tubal reversal in July of 2007. I only have one fallopian tube (another issue that had nothing to do with my procedure here). My husband and I started actively trying to get pregnant in Sept of 2008 and as of March 19 - I am pregnant. We are very excited and it would not have been possible without Dr. Berger and his wonderful staff!
