Dr. Berlin has provided outstanding care for me this year. I have suffered severe peripheral neuropathy for 15 years (chemo-induced). The care I’ve received has been exceptional including staff attentiveness and follow-up. I highly recommend his services for anyone e periencing chronic pain issues.

A Doctor who really cares

After 12 years if opiod pain killers, multiple pain doctors who would only give me pills, injections...none of which worked. Dr. Berlin in 2 weeks has giving me my hopes and dreams back. I received the Nevro spinal stimulator implant and have been pain free for 2 days. It is truly a miracle and all my love and gratitude to Dr. Berlin! He saved my life...literally!
