I have recommended him to several family members, who have had various foot concerns, and all are big fans of his medical expertise and care. His follow-up care is thorough and always has positive results." -- Ishani, September 24, 2012

Readers of the Times Union's "On the Edge" blog had this to say about Dr. Berger:

"I’ve been to Dr. Berger a few times for different running related foot injuries. My appts have always been on-time and staff is always courteous. She’s always listened to me when I’ve asked questions and found ways to help me run while addressing the injuries. She’s also informative but not 'pushy' – ex, she pointed out that I have the start of a bunion but didn’t automatically push me to surgery as an option as I’ve had with other doctors; but instead just said it was something to be aware of and to watch." -- MH, September 24, 2012
