Today’s options can really help people whose skin diseases have inhibited their quality of life and improve it to such an extent that it’s no longer a major detriment for them.

Dr Berman is a pleasant and down to earth kind of guy. He is a no "red tape" kind of doctor which is refreshing in these days of bureaucratic layers that keeps the doctor and patient at a cold distance.

Bounced around a few dermatologists before choosing James for a second opinion. Unlike others, he was very patient, listened carefully, was very friendly, gave a thorough examination, and made a care plan that I am very satisfied with. I highly recommend James E Berman, MD for anyone's skincare needs.

I was disappointed that it took three weeks to get an appointment. I also had to wait in the waiting room for a half hour past my appointment time before being seen.

Excellent dr. Took time to explain options and procedures for my skin moles Made me feel like a person with concerns about my condition instead of a patient with a number Highly recommend

My wish: Transplant Dr. Berman’s upbeat, positive, and reassuring personality into every physician, from a new internist to a seasoned specialist. Dr. Berman’s explanations are clear and precise. He delivers the “straight and skinny” on the effectiveness of various pricy meds. Sure all physicians are “on the clock,” but that doesn’t preclude a cheerful and warm demeanor. Let me also add that the entire office staff is first-rate, particularly, Missy.

I have been seeing Dr. Berman since I was a teenager. He is knowledgeable, personable, attentive and caring. The office staff are friendly, and the office environment is clean and inviting.

We love Dr. Berman! As of late, Dr. Berman was able to squeeze in a last minute appointment for me before heading back to San Diego. Even with a jam packed schedule, he made time to see me and even performed a quick procedure. He is always so accommodating and so kind. Dr. Berman is definitely my favorite dermatologist I've ever had. Even if it means coming back to my hometown of Milwaukee to see him, it's always worth it. Thank you for everything Dr., my mom and I appreciate you more than you know!
