Ratings for Dr. Alvin Berman
Undoubtedly the best gynecologist in NYC. His physical exam is worth every cent that it costs -- he spends an hour or more with each patient; is kind and understanding; "talks you through" any uncomfortable procedure. I've been with him for over twenty years, thank Heaven!
As a patient of Dr Berman 's for nearly 20 years, I can truthfully report that he is a most amazing practitioner. I have used him for multiple procedures during my years with him, and, as someone trained in the health field, I find Dr. Berman to possess a knowledge base second to none, His examination covers every organ system, something that is quite unique in today's healthcare arena. He is simply a wonderful physician. '
Simply the best doctor I have ever seen. I was his patient for 12 years. I wish my financial situation would allow me to continue seeing him. If you are as nervous as I am when seeing a gynecologist then Dr. Berman is for you. He is thorough, understanding of women psychology, gentle, in one word perfect. The only negative I have to say about his practice is that his nurse is not the friendliest, that might have changed since I last went a couple of years ago. Don't let that turn you away from a wonderful doctor and human being.
Alvin Berman is the reason I overcame my infertility problems and became a mother. That was 27 years ago and he was the only doctor I spoke to out of 12 in Manhattan who recommended my going to New Orleans for what was then an experimental surgery using the laser. He is caring, knowledgeable, accommodating, a mensch. He respects his patients and is thorough, explaining everything he does. He retains what we all valued in medical care before the system was destroyed. I trust him implicitly and am grateful to him as he has been there for me for over thirty years.
Visiting an ob/gyn is a daunting experience for most women. I wanted to find a good one that I can stick with, so after reading tons of reviews on ratemd, Alvin Berman was my first choice. Unfortuantely, when I called to make an appointment, I was informed that he does not take any type of insurance and a visit will cost $600 - $900. I know he's on the upper east side and ladies around there can probably afford to pay that much, but I'm just a 20 something girl with a decent job, but not one that allows me to splurge like that. Therefore, my search begins again to find a doctor who is willing to take my insurance (it's not cheap insurance either :() and $25 co-pay. Unfortunately, I was unable to experience the greatness of Dr. Berman that other ladies raved about.
His ability to keep you comfortable and candid before during and after your exam is like no doctor you have ever seen. He makes you WANT to be proactive about your health. Take time to engage his staff and they are truly caring as well. If you are looking for a doctor that will look after all of you then Dr. Berman is the ticket. I just hope that he can instill his dedication to the scads of medical students he teaches.
