Very helpful and informative. I'd never been to a dermatologist before so I was very nervous. He gave me two easy meds and everything cleared up within a week!
Forefront Dermatology
I had a great first experience here, which is why I decided to come back for a separate issue. The staff are friendly and responsive to my needs / questions. During my second visit, Dr. Berkson provided a referral to a surgeon who could remove my lipoma. Great experience even though Dr. Berkson wasn’t the person for my issue.

New to Chicago, disappointed to have to pay for parking on top of co-pay. Dr. Berkson and staff were great.

Had to wait for a half an hour after my appointment time to see the doctor. They forgot that I was waiting. They forgot that I was waiting.

I have no complaints whatsoever and have been beyond pleased with my service and care. I feel as though the staff and my physician are very attentive to my individual circumstances and do not hesitate to go the extra mile to ensure I receive the best care possible.

I'm satisfied with the treatment I received. It would be nice if the doctor could let you know wether you should be seen again or at least tell you if you have anymore concerns to come and see him again. And it would be helpful to give your patients information on their certain skin disorders or any prevention tips if possible.

I feel as though the staff and my physician are very attentive to my individual circumstances and do not hesitate to go the extra mile. I have been impressed at the punctuality, ease, and overall just good nature of everyone!

Dr. Berkson was super friendly and helpful. He was very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. There was barely any wait time for my appointment, I basically filled out paper work and was immediately seen.
