“I feel very fortunate to have Dr. Burger as my ophthalmologist. I have a rare vasculitis that could have lead to blindness. It didn’t. Dr. Burger’s technical expertise was apparent as she was more familiar with my condition than most medical personnel, provided appropriate targeted care, and showed a great deal of compassion. I was most appreciative of how she explained the medical logic of each approach she was taking. I feel very safe under her care.” – Thomas I.

“Dr. Berger and her staff are very professional & caring. She is a great doctor.” – Fred S.
