Our family has known Dr Richard Berg since his early years in practice. He has always been a concerned, easy to talk to, brilliant physician.
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. Berg has been not only our doctor for over 20 years but our best friend.he is someone we can not be without. There are no other words that we can use to describe Dr. Berg.
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.
Dr. Berg was very supportive when I had two very serious surgeries. I knew I could call on him when needed. He is patient and listens. It was reassuring to know I could rely on him in a time of need.
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.
