I first had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Berg before he became an MDVIP doctor. At that initial visit, I knew what I still know now, Dr. Berg is a great doctor because he is a kind, compassionate, honest, caring human being.

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...
It is a privilege for me to function in a capacity where I can potentially help avoid medical problems or treat problems as they arise. My philosophy is to do my job, both technically and emotionally to the best of my ability and in the interests of my patients. My guiding principles are simple - tell the truth and don't be arrogant.
I believe my patients who are part of my MDVIP-affiliated practice value the same goals of health care which I embrace - the values of prevention and wellness and of allowing adequate time to effectively work together to keep them happy and healthy.

He needed a peg tube to at least get a shot at living and they were refusing to do this for me even though I was POA for my father. It was a very difficult and stressful time… See more
