Dr. Berkson absolutely saved my skin. I have tons of chronic skin issues that I’d never been able to get on top of. I never thought I’d be able to get on top of my inverse psoriasis but now it’s so much better. His staff is also incredible. They’re so nice, so friendly, very attentive, and thorough. I’ve never felt rushed. I can’t recommend them enough.

Dr. Berkson was truly amazing. I've seen my primary care doctor for back acne, sweaty hands, and eye bags with no improvement to any of those issues. However, my first appointment with Dr. Berkson was so much better than seeing my primary care provider. He gave me a completely different treatment plan and assured me that these perceptions would work better than the past ones I've tried. I've had these issues for many years. I hate going to the doctor and I wish I had the guts to go to him years ago. I feel like my biggest insecurities will finally be fixed because of Dr. Berkson. The office staff is some of the best I've ever had at an office before plus I did not have to wait at all to be seen by the doctor.

Great Doctor! Quick, accurate, and actually listens! Also, the staff here was great. They laughed at my horrible jokes and made it the most fun a doctors’ visit could be. Good experience all around, look forward to working with this team in the future.
