I might have mentioned Teria on the previous page when I should have listed her here. My comments on the previous page still stand! As for Dr. Berglund, he was amazing. We read his ratings before choosing him and some of the comments were that he was a little direct. That's what we love most about him. He is obviously one of the best in his field, and our experience with him demonstrated a great value in his direct approach to my needs. He stated what he saw, quite clearly, provided specific recommendations, and had we not followed what he said I am not sure I would be in the amazing place (health-wise) that I am today. If you can't tell, my wife and I are both grateful for Dr. Berglund and his staff - what a great team of care providers!!!
