    I absolutely adore *Dr. Berger and *Haley, the surgical coordinator. When I was preparing for surgery and recovering from surgery, the whole team was wonderful but I was especially trusting of *Dr. Berger, I feel so lucky to have gotten him as my surgeon. I cannot express enough how highly I feel about both *Dr. Berger and *Haley, surgical coordinator.
