Robert Berger, M.D.
Dr Berger was an amazing surgeon and I am very happy I chose him for this surgery. I felt he was very professional. I liked that he talked to me like an adult and didn't patronize me or make me feel like I was a bad person for being so fat. He was very open to different surgery options and discussed them all with me, telling me it was my decision. When I chose the DS, I knew he had performed them before but only in separate procedures. I wanted my DS done in one surgery. He responded that as long as my vitals were good and there weren't complications after the stomach reduction portion, he would go ahead and do the intestinal bypass. He was very up front that I would be his first patient to have both steps performed in the same surgery. I really appreciated that he was honest on this point and not trying to appear as over-confident super-surgeon. He came to see me several times while I was in the hospital. Again, very professional and kind each time. He listened to me describe my experience and if I had any pain. I did not feel rushed or that he was itching to leave and see the next person. As far as aftercare, I have a great program but it is supervised by a different doctor and not my surgeon (although Dr Berger is closely affiliated with the rest of the pre- and post-op program).
The only negative experience that I had was 5 days after surgery. I had some major pain in one area and I had to keep calling the office to find out if anyone was available to see me. I was really mad that they weren't calling me back. However that is more of an issue I have with the office staff than with Dr Berger himself. Aside from that incident (which was resolved, just not as quickly as I had wanted) I have had an excellent experience and would not hesitate to recommend him.
