Dr Berg is a quiet man, that's just who he is, but that doesn't work too well when you are a doctor. He rushes quite often and is always late (by late I mean by 30mins) so be prepared to say what you need to in a short amount of time. I think the main problem is scheduling and he is a busy man. You might be better off going to a day clinic, because having Dr Berg is like not having a doctor at all.
With having a family of 6, I can say that Dr. Berg and Tina work hard to give their patients the best care. He is optimistic and thorough as well as informative for all issues brought to his attention. He is a researcher and I have even had a few calls home to give additional brainstorming ideas or info found. I really cant complain. Tina in reception is super friendly and is both an advocates for patients. I've never had a problem getting in for a true emergency.
He has been our family doctor since 2001. He listens really well, really thinks things through, is up with the latest research, really cares, won't push pills, gives good lifestyle advice, is gentle, and is a good detective. He is a bit reserved but that's his personality. He is nice and he cares. It can be a wait to get in although if its serious, they fit you in. He doesn't work more office hours, he told me, because he doesn't want to take on more patients than he is able to care for. He never rushes me and always gives me more time than I expect.
Dr. Berg has been our family doctor for years. Yes, his practice is busy and it is hard to get an appointment, but, if you are really sick, Tina gets you in ASAP! We find that he is very personable, helpful and truly cares for his patients. He keeps up to date on current issues and his advice reflects that. We love him!!!
