My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

Growing up in a small Pennsylvania town, I was influenced by the doctors who were completely dedicated to their patients constantly working in their best interest. And now that I have been practicing for 30 years, I have found that to be a compelling model for clinical practice. I believe this is a profession, not a trade, and I always work in my patient's best interest.
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.

Dr. Berg is a brilliant diagnostician along with a caring and loving capacity to his patients. I appreciate his quick response to any medical question I have, and always making me feel I am his only patient . While I know this isnt reality, I know he is always there for me.

from Theresa in MD February 28, 2018 for Richard A. Berg, MD

I was with Dr. Berg for many years but when he established the VIP practice, I left thinking I did not need that level of care. I came running back to him two years later. He is a one of a kind. Bright, caring and humble. I am so fortunate to have him as my primary care doctor.
