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!

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...

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!

Facial Fillers - Reston, VA

Dr berman is very light hearted, and professional. He always answers questions and goes into detail about what he is going to do. Always gives suggestions , has even told me to wait or not do a procedure. He actually is result oriented not just looking for a check.

Next Best Thing to The Fountain of Youth

I've seen Dr. Berman for over 15 years for filler and botox. I would not be having any of these treatments if I did not completely trust his judgment and abilities, especially since I've had filler injected under my (sunken) eyes. Think about it - you have to be completely confident in someone who's going to stick a needle in your eye socket. The results are always pleasing and natural...

Dr. Berman and his team are very friendly and helpful with answering my questions both pre- and post-op whether it was by phone, email or text. He gave the best advice when I asked about choosing the size and profile that best suits my frame (petite) and lifestyle (fairly active). It's only been 1wk post, and I am so happy with how good my body is feeling overall with recovery. I'm positive...

Excelente Experince

I had my procedure done on the morning and was home after noon. I was alert and had no pain. I went back to work with 10 days after my surgery and I felt good. I had complete support from Dr Berman and his team after the surgery as well. I couldn't be more happy with my decision to have the procedure done with Dr Berman.

Botox for Underarms

I went to Dr. Berman a little over two weeks ago for underarm botox treatment for hyperhidrosis. I am happy to say the results have been great. I don't have any sweating at all except for if I actually get hot which I consider normal. I must say it has been hard to get used to the wonderful results. I cannot express enough how life changing it is to get this type of treatment that works. I...
