Ratings for Dr. Gary Berg
Never on time, part time DR, always charges extra for repeat drugs if you run out b4 you can see him((3-4 weeks for an appt, ) Does not inform you ahead of time b4 he chgs you, doesn't always handle what needs to be handled, thinks it's a joke when you try to explain things, it's a profession not a job, getting to adjacent at the profession, moneys not everything. Not good at filling out forms for you at all.
Dr. Berg is not my physician but today I met him regarding a situation that needed his attention and I can only say that he was very kind to take the time and care required on the spur of the moment and on his lunch hour. I am very grateful. I would think that anyone who has Dr. Berg as their physician would be very thankful and fortunate.
Believes in prescribing Antipsychotics for Seniors who have Alzheimers, even though this drug is directy related to death in this category of Patients. http://www.medicaldaily.com/antipsychotic-drugs-among-elderly-raise-death-risk-dementia-patients-326150
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.
