the last person that posted it a total idiot. Dr. Berryman was my doctor for 32 years and is the best doctor I have ever seen. He was stern but only to get you to do right. So if you didn't like him then you must have not been willing to give up something that would kill you.
has a very large practice,very knowledgeable,his practice is his life,loves people especially his patients,his personel and auxillary depts in hospital.he remembers people by name (has memory of an elephant)his patients and families adore him.
If you want an intelligent doctor that knows about everything, Dr. Rick Berryman is your man. I have known Rick since we were young children. He has taken care of me for almost 40 years. Grant you he has no bedside manner but I'm not there for that. He tells it like it is--no sugar coating from him and to me that's what you need in a physician, someone that will be honest with you. He is the most caring and compassionate doctor I have ever known. If he has a patient that's not going to make it he will stay with that patient until they have passed. He is so dedicated to his profession and to his staff. I want to thank Rick for all the years of a wonderful friendship and for taking such good care of me. I want to add my thanks to his family for sharing him with all of his patients.
Dr. Berryman, indeed, does not have a bedside manner some Dr.'s have, but he is absolutely compassionate, caring and kind. At times he comes across as arrogant and rude, but underneath that is a very special man. I am one of his #1 fans. If someone is thin skinned and can't stand up to him they shouldn't be his patient. But, if you want a Dr. who will watch over your health conditions, care, give you good treatment and meet you at the ER,if necessary, he's great.
I have been a patient for 28 years. Dr. Berryman is an excellent doctor who shoots strait with his patients. If you want a doctor who will sugar coat every problem and tell you what you wont to hear find another doctor. If however you want one who will diognose your problem and get you on the road to recovery Dr. Berryman can't be beat. Many of his patients are nurses and other doctors -- those that really know who the best doctors are.
Dr. Berryman's office cancelled/rescheduled the last 5 visits I had. He is a good doctor but has absolutely NO bedside manner. He can be, and often is, very rude and arrogant. After being a patient of his for over 20 years have changed to another doctor and have absolutely no intention of ever returning to his office. There are to many doctors with good bedside manners that are kind and compassionate--Dr. Berryman is not one of them.
