We have been seeing Dr. Bergman for the past seven years and have been very happy with his office. If you are looking for a small practice that can get you in for same day sick appointments, little to no wait times upon arrival, a caring doctor who takes his time with you and your child and doesn’t have a revolving door of staff members look no further. It’s hard to find a concierge-type doctor who really gets to know his patients with paying concierge fees. He was instrumental in helping to get to the bottom of my child’s frequent illnesses and she is now doing so much better. My girls love Dr. B!!
Dr. Bergman is a wonderful pediatrician. I have 3 children who all adore him and love visiting his office. He is extremely attentive, punctual and knowledgeable. Him and nurse Ann have always been very helpful and understanding when we call or visit, even on the weekends. When my children are sick we have always been able to see the doctor right away and his follow-up is unparalleled.
After years of going to a larger pediatric office with 10+ doctors, we made the switch. We have been seeing Dr. Bergman for over 7 years now and couldn't be happier. He is very attentive and never makes us feel rushed. My kids are comfortable with him and his staff. He genuinely listens to our concerns and questions. He always answers our call after hours and personally follows up with calls after seeing a sick child. I only wish I had found him years earlier!
My kids have been patients of Dr. Bergman for 9 years. He is very knowledgeable and thorough. He spends a decent amount of time with my children and we never feel rushed. The most we've ever had to wait is 5-10 minutes. When my kids are sick his Nurse Ann always fits us in that day. When we call after hours Dr. Bergman immediately calls us back. The office is open half a day on Saturdays to accommodate those who work during the week. Typically, those appointments you must book in advance because they fill up fast. Thank you Dr. Bergman for giving my children the care that they deserve.
Dr. Bergman always makes himself available for our children’s healthcare needs and our questions and concerns. The solo practice provides a very personalized experience. He is patient and kind with our little ones. Will share his knowledge, expertise and suggestions while still being open minded and recognizing that the parent is ultimately the expert on their child and that each child is unique which is very important to us! We’ve been with him since the hospital with the birth of both our children and have built a great and trusting relationship with him as our pediatrician.
I chose Dr. Bergman based on my own research, and he did not disappoint! Apart from being there at the hospital to visit my son within 2 hours after his birth, Dr. Bergman’s caring nature and patience with explaining every detail to us new parents was truly appreciated. We’ve had two follow up visits so far and we are very confident in him being our son’s pediatrician!
My family have always had a great experience with Dr. Bergman and his staff. During emergency situations he would go above and beyond his duties to make sure everything was perfect. My late wife loved the passion & patience Dr. Bergman and his staff always demonstrated when working with our kids. I was very grateful for Dr. Bergman and staff for always making my Autistic son feel comfortable even through his meltdowns. Thank you and your staff again for setting the benchmark!!
I have been bringing my children here since 2003, and I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Bergman. Whenever you need an appointment they make it a point to be able to get you in. Dr. Bergman is very thorough in his exams and is sure to give the parents all the information that they need. We unfortunately had to go to the hospital with my daughter and Dr. Bergman was there everyday checking in and making sure she was getting the care she needed.
Dr. Bergman is a very thorough doctor. He's always available for your baby. Being first time parents, my wife and I had/have lots of questions about everything and Dr. Bergman always answers each and every question. He personally called my wife prior to our baby being born to go over what to expect and at that time we hadn't even chosen him as our son's pediatrician yet. After that call we figured if he paid that much attention to a potential patient then he's the doctor for us. We haven't been disappointed.
My daughter health and well-being is a priority for me, and I feel confident that with Dr Bergman’s thorough examinations and guidelines we can achieve it. Plus it’s always pleasant to hear the conversation my daughter and her doctor have.
We’ve had three follow up visits with Dr. Bergman since the birth of our first born and each visit has been great! The office is really clean, there’s virtually no wait time, and Dr. Bergman has been very thorough every time! I’m really glad to have found his practice and to have him as our child’s pediatrician!
Dr Bergman has been my pediatrician for almost 16 years. He always takes time with my children. He provides clear direction and even gives written instructions because who is truly paying attention when our children are sick. His office always provides same day sick appointments. I wish my PCP did that! I appreciate the single practioner and personal care.
