Doc couldn't get xrays uploaded right away as they were form outside CCF provider. he got frustrated and was forced to make dx and tx plan without xrays. Had someone told me about 24 hr delay in uploading xrays I would have taken them to CCF the previous day. I sent doc a my chart message to please read xrays and I have not heard back from him. I do not feel like he heard me about my pain level related not to my fx but to my foot arthritis. I suppose he can address it in future appts.

Dr. Berkowitz nurse Cheryl was excellent

Reviewed on Dec 19, 2018

I do not expect doctors to remember my name after just first visit, but to not even look in my history and see if he saw me again, asking me the same questions about how and when I got injured, it's a bit too much. it happened twice. I have no doubt that he is a great surgeon and doctor, and he is busy, but general interest in every patient's history lacks. It may be because he did not have to perform surgery on my ankle, but this is not a valid reason in my book.

Reviewed on Nov 12, 2018

I had a great follow up office visit. Dr. Berkowitz was punctual and took time to make sure he reviewed every aspect of my care. He was not busy at the computer while talking to me, he just talked with me, face to face. Even though this injury was a real set back for me, I know that I would still be "broken", had it not been for his great care and patience!

Dr Berkowitz made it perfectly clear what his expectations were concerning my surgery and post-op care. I knew exactly what to expect and how to handle any "set-backs" if they were to occur. I did not have any set-backs and I directly relate that to Dr Berkowitz's clearly laid out plans. He made sure that I had a complete understanding of his plans. I cannot express how pleased I am with Dr Berkowitz and his team.
