5 out of 5 stars Smart Lipo

Great doctor - Sterling, VA

I had a smartlipo sugery two weeks ago. My operation and so far the recovery were much easier than I anticipated. Dr. Berman and his entire staff were very professional, knowledgeable, attentive and very caring. I would highly recommend him.

Wanted to See What Botox Could Do for Me

I love Dr. Berman, he is very nice and personable, he always gives me complements and love the fact that he does the Botox himself, I wouldn't feel comfortable if someone else did it.

Great Staff/Beautiful Environment

Wonderful! The nurses/admin were very accommodating with "Specials" for me. Price is great and needles by the Doctor Berman were (almost) painless. I will go to this practice again. Thank you for this visit!

5 out of 5 stars Weight Loss

My 14-Day Paleo Diet Journey…

I have been trying to lose 15-20 pounds for a few years, but had a difficult time changing my eating habits, and hitting the gym regularly. Then one day I went into Dr. David Berman’s office in Northern VA, and I was talking with his Assistant about her 11-pound weight loss on the Paleo Diet. After talking to her I decided to give it a try, so I purchased the 14- day Paleo Diet. The first d...

5 out of 5 stars Laser Liposuction

Excellent Procedure, Excellent Staff, Excellent Doctor

The staff was incredibly friendly and most importantly the doctor was up front about the options, the procedures, the healing process and he too was incredibly friendly. Everyone was very professional and accommodating. If someone were nervous, I think the staff and doctor could easily keep clients calm. In this kind of procedures it matters very much how comfortable you are with the doctor and Dr. Berman is very easy to be around. I was pleasantly surprised when he checked up on me the day following the treatment. Most doctors do not give their clients that much attention. I will absolutely use Dr. Berman and his facility in the future should I decide to undergo any other cosmetic options. THANK YOU DR. B & STAFF!
