I have been seeing Dr. Bergen for many years now after seeing several other doctors in the area. I have found her to be excellent. She has always expressed a genuine interest in my well-being and has provided tremendous support - well beyond simply providing medication. She has always given me the time my current state has necessitated (ie, longer and more frequent visits when needed). I consider myself very fortunate to have found her.
I have seen Dr. Bergen now for 10 years and if it weren't for her, I can't imagine where my life would be. I saw two previous psychiatrists and one gave me the impression I was bothering him. He was reading stuff on his desk while I was talking. The second one was a female who told me "your dad is dead, get over it". Dr. Bergen delved into where my grief was coming from and has helped me (and continues to help me) learn to deal with death and dying and how to get beyond my troubled childhood. She truly cares about her patients and wants them to live a happier, more balanced life.
My experience with Dr. Bergen has been positive and I am grateful to have her as my psychiatrist. I grateful that people like her are in the profession. She takes a patient centered approach, she works with me, has compassion for my struggles and values my opinion and experience. Downside is that she is very busy and it is difficult to get an appointment. I also appreciate the support staff's compassion and patience.
very knowledgeable and helpful in the 15 years I have seen her;she is very busy, but they all are, in my experience she is caring, patient oriented and has a very good manner about her.She does have definite opoinions about what will work and what not, but I would expect that from anyone who is on the ball and very experienced as she is.
