I love my doctor. He has always been there for me and I feel confident that his diagnosis is right on. He gets to know his patients which only hightens the accuracy of his diagnosis.
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.

Dr.Richard Berg has been my late husbands best friend for many years.
When I had my 90th birthday and my son his 60th on the same day in August
three years ago, Dr.Berg and his wife Dr.Wen traveled to Vienna, Austria, my home town, to celebrate the birthdays with us. We had a wonderful time together.
Dr. Berg is a very dedicated physician. He's sensitive to the concerns of his patients. There is an element of comfort while in his care. He has been very supportive during two very serious surgeries experienced by me. I feel blessed to be under his care. He is extremely competent and I am fortunate to have a physician I can call on when needed.
It took me almost my whole life to finally find a great doctor; at least one that would take the time to really listen to you and diagnose what was wrong with me. He truly is a caring doctor along with being genuinely understanding.
Dr. Richard A. Berg has made a great difference in my life. I wish to express my gratitude of how blessed I am to have Dr. Berg for my doctor. He is so kind, compassionate, very attentive, answers your calls in a timely manner, is very attentive during visits and is very respectful.
Dick has made me feel so cared for regarding my health. I feel that he is truly concerned that I receive the best evaluation and protection available. On top of all that he is one of the most intelligent and witty people I have ever met. He is quite self-effacing and considerate. He is top-notch!
I didn't use to know there was any other kind of Dr except a puppy mill Doctor. Small towns where I have lived didn't have the kind of Dr. who is affiliated with a famous research hospital and also considers it his job to spend time with patients. His approach is whatever time it takes to think through your problems and treat your whole body is what I'll do. Dr. Dick Berg is the… See more

My husband and I are so grateful for the tremendous care Dr Berg and his staff give to their patients! He works so hard it inspires us to take care of ourselves.
The ease of office appointments, referrals and response to questions all make Dr Berg and his staff invaluable. His knowledge and care are above and beyond.
