Highland Park, IL
I am a former patient of Dr. Berman, now an adult with two children of my own. Marv had a great song & dance with the parents, letting patients play piano for him and putting our photos on his wall...but as soon as they got you back in the chair away from parents, it was nothing short of torture. I distinctly remember him pulling a permanent tooth when I was about 10 years old and I was terrified of the novicane shot and cried out of fear. Instead of calming me down with words, he nastily kept telling me that each time I cried he would give me another shot, which of course made me cry more. He was MEAN, as were several of his hygenists!! My brother and cousins had similar experiences that made us all terribly fearful of going to the dentist. Fortunatly, my children go to a wonderful, patient pediatric dentist named Thomas Resnick in Northbrook.
