Bergman Pediatrics in Wellington, Florida

Welcome to Bergman Pediatrics

Dr. Bergman has always been dedicated to personalized pediatric care that is tailor-made to each individual child and family. Since 1989, Dr. Bergman has enjoyed taking care of a variety of children from newborns to age 21 who reside in Wellington, Royal Palm Beach, Loxahatchee, The Acreage, Belle Glade, Clewiston, Lake Worth, Greenacres, Boynton Beach and West Palm Beach, Florida. As a member of the Topline MD Alliance, Dr. Bergman has been able to remain a solo pediatric practitioner while still having access to the tools and resources of a larger organization of medical specialists. Solo pediatric practitioners have become increasing hard for families to find; yet, Dr. Bergman feels that it is the only way he enjoys providing medical care. He strives to be a concierge type pediatrician without the additional fees. He will always be the one to return your phone calls and answer your questions (24/7).

 

The team at Bergman Pediatrics really care and strive to address the physical, emotional, educational and mental needs of your children and your entire family without being pressured to overbook an appointment schedule. Spending enough time with each patient as well as continuity of care are Dr. Bergman’s primary concerns. Here at Bergman Pediatrics, it is all about quality and not quantity. He believes in treating the entire patient and not just the disease. The goal is to make you feel like you always have enough time to have all your concerns adequately addressed.
 
Dr. Bergman keeps abreast in the latest in medical knowledge and technology but realizes that there is often more than one way to address your child’s health issues. He will listen to your concerns and always include you in the decision process and treatment plan. Thank you for trusting Bergman Pediatrics with your children and look forward to all of you joining the practice and its extended family.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

As one of only three solo pediatric practitioners in the Western Communities, Dr. Bergman is able to give personalized service and continuity of care utilizing the latest in medical knowledge and technology. He offers many of the benefits of a concierge-type pediatric practice without the additional fees. He is the only solo pediatrician in the community that continues to take care of his own patients when they are hospitalized at Palms West Hospital. His patients are treated as if they were part of his extended family.

Parents can call the office number after-hours and record their name and phone number and a brief message which goes directly to Dr. Bergman. There is no answering service or middle man. Dr. Bergman will return your call directly – not an answering service, nurse practitioner, or after hours call center. The parents of his patients find this very reassuring to know that when their child is ill, they can speak with Dr. Bergman directly who knows them best.”

Yes, expectant parents can contact the office to set up a complementary prenatal consultation. These can be done in person or via telemedicine. We can give you a VIP tour of our office and discuss how to prepare for the arrival of your newest family member.

Dr. Bergman is on staff at both Palms West Hospital and Wellington Regional Medical Center and is available to see your newborn in the hospital as long as arrangements have been made with the office staff prior to delivery.

Any child who is ill is brought directly back into an exam room, even if they are a new patient. It is rare for anyone to have to wait in the reception area.

Dr. Bergman strongly supports the vaccination schedule that is outlined by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the CDC. He has made a pledge to all of the families in his practice that all children will be vaccinated with at least the mandatory vaccinations that are required by the public school system. These include the DTaP, IPV, HIB, Hepatitis B, Prevnar 13, MMR, and Varicella vaccinations. Dr. Bergman feels that this is by far the most important thing that pediatricians due for children to prevent life threatening diseases. The parents of his patients understand that these vaccines will be administered in a timely fashion according the schedule outlined by the CDC. Any parents that refuse these vaccines will be asked to find another pediatric practice for their children. This guideline is to protect the other patients in our office from being potentially exposed to a life-threatening communicable disease. Finally, the splitting up of vaccines or delay in immunization has been found to have no benefit to the child. In fact, delay in immunization puts a child at increased risk for illness.

Telemedicine makes it easy for your adolescent or young adult to remain in touch with their doctor even though they may be miles away from school or on vacation. Refills of prescriptions can also be handled in the same manner

Dr. Bergman can always be reached 24/7. Many issues can be treated via telemedicine and thereby avoid unnecessary ER or Urgent Care Visits. Prescriptions can be e-prescribed to an out-of-town pharmacy. Should your child require testing or further evaluation, Dr. Bergman will help you to find local urgent care or emergency room to visit and will discuss the findings and treatment plan with the physician on-call in that center.

Dr. Bergman was one of the first pediatricians to onboard telemedicine services in his practice. Many issues can be handled in this fashion. Of course, it is always better to have an in-person visit. You can be assured that Dr. Bergman has taken all the necessary safety precautions in his office to ensure your child’s safety. However, a telemedicine visit is always an option – even for after-hour emergencies which may prevent an unnecessary trip to Urgent Care or even the Emergency Room.

Dr. Bergman is on staff at Palms West Hospital and is one of the few pediatricians in the area that still admits his own patients and monitors their care while in the hospital. It is nice to have a familiar face and someone who is very familiar with your child’s medical history when he or she is ill enough to require hospitalization. While Dr. Bergman sees newborns at Palms West Hospital and Wellington Regional Medical Center, please remember that Palms West Hospital is the only facility in the western communities that has an inpatient Pediatric Floor and Pediatric ICU.
