I feel like Dr. Berman handled my visit very well.I also had an issue that was bothering me, I thought I had an UTI. I went for labs THAT morning, he called me later in the afternoon, to tell me I did have an UTI but we had to grow a culture for 24 hours, by the time he called to tell me I did indeed have a UTI, the antibiotic was already for me at my pharmacy.

  • Yes, I feel better right now. You know. I seem to be okay. That's it.

  • Although I was a new patient, I felt confident, under difficult circumstances, (Coronavirus Pandemic) that my “phone visit” was very most informative.

  • this was a phone conversation set up because a visit to the office did not work with the current Coronavirus situation. he was almost a half an hour late because he had a conference call. the person arranging this call had asked me to be by the phone 20 minutes prior to the call. I was waiting 40 minutes in all.

  • Dr. Berman has been my PCP for over 20 years. When I am sick he always takes care of me whether in the office or at home. Dr. Berman has always taken a personal interest in my well being.

  • Dr. Berman has been my primary doctor for over 30 years.He stepped in when another doctor (whom we will not mention, it’s not necessary) completely misdiagnosed my symptoms and almost killed me .I will never forget the day he sat me in his office and told me, “as of this moment, I am your doctor “ ! Dr. Berman saved my life!To this day we enjoy a better than normal relationship,He’s getting older and so am I.I’m a realist and now that someday soon he has to retire,However; before he retires, patients like my self, should point out what a very special doctor he is.I would like him to be my doctor forever, but that would be selfish.He deserves his retirement and when it comes, he will be sorely missed !

  • Dr Berman is a patient friendly dedicated Doctor.

  • Very professional and knowledgeable staff. Thank you.

  • I arrived early for my 3:30 appointment. As time approached 4:30 and the waiting room emptied I notified the receptionist that I would have to leave to attend to other responsibilities. I was then seen with the nurse stating she was unaware I was in the waiting room. I like Dr. Berman, my check-up went well and I do not need to return for another year!

  • Spend less time on the computer.

  • Dr. Berman saved my life. He found my cancer and went to a lot of trouble to do so. An amazing and kind person. Extremely intelligent too.

Southcoast Health physician profiles now feature star ratings.  Below, you’ll find frequently asked questions about our process for calculating the ratings.

Why does Southcoast publish survey ratings online?
Southcoast is dedicated to providing patients and consumers with helpful information about the quality of our patients’ experiences. Star ratings published on our physician biography pages are based on actual responses from patients of that particular physician to patient satisfaction surveys that are distributed and processed by a national patient satisfaction survey vendor.

Who receives the survey?
Our vendor sends surveys via SMS or email to all patients seen in our outpatient physician practices who have a valid smart phone number or email address on file with Southcoast Health. Surveys are sent to patients within a few days of their appointment.

How is the Patient Satisfaction Star Rating Calculated?
Star ratings are calculated using an average of all survey responses to each of three questions: Courtesy and Respect of Staff, Provider Overall Rating, and  Willingness to Recommend Provider’s Office.  The star rating displayed on our physicians’ main biography page represents the average of the three measures for that particular physician.
