Dr. Berg's lifelong dream is to meaningfully contribute to helping our furry family members. Hope -- that is what Dr. Berg provides. Neurology is often a frightening subject for owners and veterinarians alike. The good news is that once identified, many neurological conditions are highly treatable with the latest treatment techniques and love.

Named best neurologist in New York Magazine's 'Best Vets' issue, Dr. Berg has performed thousands of neurosurgeries, including hundreds of brain surgeries. He is one of only two veterinary neurologists to have implanted the vagal nerve stimulator to help control epilepsy and the only one in private practice.
