Berdia and his staff are the best!!
Dr. Berdia is great and I would totally recommend him to anyone who is suffering from wrist/hand problems. I came in with an extremely sore and week wrist, and after explaining to Dr. Berdia my story and symptoms, he stated that I had a ruptured ECRB tendon. He wanted some MRIs just to be sure and he was correct. He performed surgery to repair my ruptured tendon as well as fix the tendinitis. I would recommend him to anyone! Great work!
On *DATE*, I fell, broke my wrist and displaced the bones. Dr. Berdia aligned the bones with a titanium plate and screws and advised me schedule p.t. one week post-surgery with Karen Forester (more about her in a moment). My threshold for pain is ridiculously low but thanks to the shoulder nerve block day of surgery and advice to take the pain medication on a regular schedule the first day, I was able to manage comfortably with just Advil 36 hours post-surgery. I know the pain level was manageable thanks to the skill and experience of Dr. Berdia. I am now about 5.5 weeks post surgery, the bone is healed and perfectly aligned, I have regained most of my range of motion and I am thrilled with the result. The key to recovery is not only the surgeon's skill but also following through with physical therapy. Karen Forester is my p.t. instructor, coach and cheerleader.. I started out with p.t. 2x/week, diligently practice the exercises she provided 8x/day and have now graduated to p.t. 1x/week. Karen patiently showed me the proper way to do the exercises, coached me through the discomfort of working through the scar tissue and thanks to her skill, I have already regained most of the range of motion in all of the exercises. I am impressed with her knowledge and professionalism and fully expect to be "back to normal" following treatment. I am a grateful, 100% satisfied patient!
This is my second surgery and PT from Berdia and the PT staff. I recommend the Center to everyone I know.
Dr. Berdia did a remarkable job with my fractured left elbow. My elbow was broken in 5 pieces, and required 11 pins and a plate to repair it. I feel very positive about my care here.
Dr. Berdia besides being a good Doc has superb humor timings. Thx Doc
Love the doctors and staff
Excellent facility and staff.
Dr. Berdia is superb.
Dr. Berdia is an Excellent Surgeon and Doctor??
Thank you and your staff for the great work you did special thanks to The PT crew
Dr Berdia was very knowledgeable and kind. Good bedside manners. I felt confident in is ability to handle my problems. Thanks Doc.
Dr Beria is a consummate physician and surgeon. Friendly and professional.
Dr. Beria is very professional and an excellent doctor who thinks of the patient first and is not surgery happy. I hear his name often when talking to people in the medical field.
I worked in health care for 30years. I have been to top rated hand surgeons in CA (Julio Talesnick) and MD. I was very impressed with Dr. Berdia. He looked at my hand problems from different prospective than the others (maybe as a result of his engineering background). Dr. Berdia did an outstanding job on two of my hand surgeries that fixed both problems to my overwhelming satisfaction. He is by far the best hand surgeon I have been to. I have and will continue to refer patients.
Thank you so much for all you have done for me. I'm one hundred percent certain I'll come back to this facility for any possible future orthopedic issues!
Great team. Hand is doing great.
Physical therapy was a life saver.....still doing my exercises....thanks, Christine!
Dr. Beria and staff were outstanding. I only wish he had been my initial doctor for this injury.
I've been coming to the DC office for a period of over 12 months. The staff here (Alicia, Annette, & Jennifer) have been wonderful. They are courteous, respectful of me & my time, & extremely professional! At one point I decided to go to Rockville office, but quickly change d back because of the relationship that had been developed and frankly, the DC staff were much more personable!
