Feb. 12, 2020
explained fully about my watchman procedure. Did a excellent job. Always had my issues and heart first hand. Great doctor and staff!
Feb. 4, 2020
Dr. Berger spent about 5 minutes with me and seemed to be in a rush. I did not feel she listened carefully to me. She told me I need to lose weight, but did not spend time discussing my concerns or barriers to weight loss.
Feb. 4, 2020
she is very helpful to my heath needs. Like her.
Feb. 1, 2020

The quality of care and concern
Jan. 17, 2020
Dr. Berger truly listened to my concerns.
Jan. 12, 2020
I was referred to Dr. Berger by my Primary Care Physician because she heard irregular heart rhythm during my physical exam. Dr. Berger treated me like I was wasting her time. As she walked out ahead of me, I had to ask her to repeat herself as she told me the exit was to my left. I waited to see her for a 10 minute conversation and a 30 second exam.
Jan. 10, 2020
She provided an excellent description of a defibrillator implant.

Dec. 11, 2019
Appointment was very informative. The Dr took the time go over various issues and listened to my concerns.
Dec. 4, 2019
I was referred to Dr. Berger for specialty care. She and her staff were excellent. Dr. Berger was completely prepared for my visit. She had reviewed my records ahead of time. In addition, one of her staff called me the day before to gather information. I was very impressed with her preparation, knowledge and judgement. She was very thoughtful in her approach and gave me an excellent opinion. She is one of the best doctors I have been to. I am very happy to continue my care with her. She is an outstanding physician.
Dec. 3, 2019
I have always appreciated Dr. Berger's calm, compassionate demeanor, professionalism and extensive cardiac medical knowledge!
Nov. 17, 2019
Dr. Berger is awesome! I was very impressed with her right-on knowledge & prep for my appointment & steps to take in future to pinpoint problem & treatment. Thank you!
Nov. 15, 2019
I had seen a number of providers for workup a for my condition and Dr. Berger explained things to me in a much different way than anyone had previously. I had seen a different EP within the clinic who was very dismissive of my concerns but Dr. Berger acknowledged that my condition is very nebulous and can be very hard to diagnose and treat. She was on board with my transferring care to her and one thing that really struck me as unique compared with other providers is that she was discouraging more expensive tests because they would not change the plan, management, or prognosis. She also saw that I am a generally healthy young woman and wanted to get me on as few medications as possible to treat my symptoms. That was great because all tests have risks and benefits and all medications have costs, side effects, and risks / benefits. Will definitely recommend her to friends / family that need EP services.
Nov. 14, 2019
nOT THE PROVIDER. Dr. Berger is exceptionally good. Only problem is that of parking to get to see her.
Nov. 13, 2019
Dr Berger was very calm and addressed all of my questions. She was knowledgeable and confident which put me at ease.
Nov. 12, 2019
excellent visit and staff
Nov. 10, 2019
treats me as part of the care team and respects my input.
Oct. 24, 2019
I was a new patient, so my complete medical history was new to the Dr.
Oct. 20, 2019
Dr. Berger is always direct to the point while dealing with my health problems and concerns. I feel I can ask, and will be heard fully, and will then be answered in a professional way. This has been consistent in all of my visits, and I have no doubts that I will continue to receive this great quality of service in the future.
Oct. 8, 2019
Dr. Berger is an amazing Cardiologist who has provided me with exceptional care!
Oct. 2, 2019
we discussed my qualification for the Watchmen procedure.
Sept. 30, 2019
I didn't phone her office with a question but did send message on my chart. Received a timely, thorough, sensitive response.
Sept. 24, 2019
Keep doing what you guys have been doing....
Sept. 8, 2019
absolute profesionalism..sincere concern..a.listening ear..
Aug. 30, 2019
very comfortable with Dr. Berger. Honest and to the point!
Aug. 19, 2019
I waited for the doctor after the nurse did vitals for 35 MINUTES. Alone, no magazines, no music, no tv, for over half an hour. I wondered how long I should have to wait until I get up & say something. the dr apologized but that was WAY TOO LONG.
Aug. 14, 2019
Very knowledgeable, takes time and listens. cares about my health and is very compassionate. I have confidence in her.
July 25, 2019
Dr. Berger was very helpful and nice, but she was 45 minutes late due to another patient. She also seemed flustered/ stressed because she was running behind and seemed like she was WAY overbooked. This made me nervous that she'd miss something in my chart or overlook something important in our appointment. *If they schedule Dr. Berger to have more time with patients, I think her patients will feel more comfortable that they're being taken care of and that the doctor isn't in a rush to hurry through appointments.
July 17, 2019
I am a first time patient with Doctor Berger. She was highly recommended by relative. She explained everything concerning my condition and pointed out several things I needed to think about.
June 30, 2019
I see Dr. Berger one time a Year for pacemaker checkups and i feel she knows all there is to know about it.
June 29, 2019
I waited 35 minutes to see her and no one came in to explain why she was late. She seems very knowledgeable but did not seem personable.
June 28, 2019
*Dr. Berger called me the evening before my appointment regarding appt. time. She went beyond (& above) what a busy physician usually does.
June 27, 2019
appointment times always seem to run late and it's tough to get appointments schedule so when they are behind it is hard to be gone from work so long.
June 24, 2019
I waited in the exam room for 25 minutes.. Every 10 minutes i should have been checked on and provided with an update as to the doctors availability. I felt like I was forgotten. Also an additional test was needed but it was after 4 pm. I had to find someone to help me with the test. I was glad there was still someone to take of me so I did not have to come back the next day.
June 17, 2019
Several patients were concerned with the bathroom facilities: availability of soap and toweling.
June 15, 2019
The parking is terrible. This is obviously no reflection on Dr. Berger, but on MCW as a whole. Even knowing the exact address, it is difficult for patients to navigate the campus. The valet service is not helpful in this regard since it is poorly labeled and difficult to find.
June 12, 2019
Made me feel relaxed & explained upcoming surgery completely.
June 1, 2019
She is a very special provider!!! EXCELLENT!!!!
May 25, 2019
she is a fantastic doctor that shows great care and concern for the betterment of her patients. I would and have recommended her to many of my friends and relatives. absolutely fantastic care!
May 18, 2019
she is super intelligent and improved my quality of life with a previous ablation
May 17, 2019
*Dr. Berger was very helpful but others in the cardiac unit weren't.
May 17, 2019
Sometimes difficult to get appointments but effort is made to 'squeeze' me in.
May 16, 2019
total lack of affect, could not see if she was understanding my info. just a smile would have helped
May 8, 2019
takes time to explain things well.
May 8, 2019
I found Dr. Berger to be a treasure trove of information that will hopefully help me down the road. She answered all my questions very thoroughly in a way that I could understand. Furthermore, since my condition does not appear to be chronic at this time she took a sensible approach to my treatment plan. One thing that needs some attention is the parking situation below the building. I had a very hard time trying to find a parking space. I eventually had to go over to the main hospital and park in their lot. Very inconvenient to say the least. From my perspective, somebody needs to be counting cars in and out of the structure. I sign needs to go up "lot full" when it is full of cars. Period
May 6, 2019
Dr Berger goes to great lengths to make certain I am receiving the best possible individual care and I feel sure she does this for all her patients. she is a great credit to, and holds the values of Froedtert very high.
May 1, 2019
I know that the nurse was receiving instruction from a Medtronic rep. but I felt ignored while this was going on.
May 1, 2019
listened well and explained everything so I could understand it
April 25, 2019
Dr. Berger is very good, the only heart doctor I had, that did something positive in helping me. Now I have a good team of Doctors taking care of me. Thank you.
April 17, 2019
You guys show a sincere desire to provide excellent care! Keep up the good work. And get you act together on Hospital Security to do the very best you can to avoid what happened a few months back.
April 17, 2019
10+++.
April 15, 2019
My daughter has terminal cancer and *Dr. Berger was very compassionate and gave me time to share. 3 family members are now patients of hers. We love her!
April 12, 2019
Dr. Berger is always knowledgable, professional and kind.
April 10, 2019
She remembered many details of my health care history and the problems I've had.
April 8, 2019
This was a "specialty" appointment, not my internist, so some of the questions didn't quite fit the situation. However, the provider with whom I had the visit is extraordinary and my treatment plan is in place to further diagnose the issue.
April 4, 2019
Although I waited close to an hour to see her, I appreciated that she did not seem rushed. She spent the time with me that I needed. She gave me several choices for next steps as well as pros and cons for each.
