About Dr. Berbano

Philosophy of care

I always strive to help you feel better and to improve your quality of life. I spend as much time as possible answering your questions and educating you about your treatment options.

Why I entered medicine

I've always admired my two aunts who were physicians – one of them even practiced at Lehigh Valley several years ago. When my grandfather was diagnosed with diabetes, I knew I wanted to be a physician like my aunts, so I could help people feel better.

Community involvement

Our family supports and donates to the arts in our community.

Personal interests

I loved coaching my kids' in basketball when they were young and was a coach volunteer in their school. I enjoy watching my sons' shows in Philadelphia – both are in theater arts – and enjoy watching my daughter play basketball. As a family, we love traveling as well as going to New York City to watch Broadway shows.

Ratings and Reviews

About Our Ratings and Reviews

About our Survey

Our physicians and advanced practice clinicians (CRNPs and PA-Cs) are among the nation's best. That's why we show you patient satisfaction ratings and comments so you can read about and get to know our providers through the eyes of their patients.

To ensure our ratings and comments come only from verified patients, we work with NRC Health, a third-party organization. NRC Health sends patient satisfaction surveys on LVPG's behalf following an office visit or procedure. They ask patients about their impression of the health care provider and the doctor's or advanced practice clinician's communication skills.

What is included in the star rating?

Star ratings are based on a scale of 1-5 stars, 5 being the best. The rating includes responses to these provider-related questions:

  1. Physician Communication Questions
    1. Did this provider give you enough information about your health and treatment?
    2. Did this provider give you easy to understand information about your health questions and concerns?
    3. Did this provider listen carefully to you?
    4. Did this provider seem to know your medical history?
    5. Did you trust this provider with your care?
  2. Overall Provider Rating Question
    1. Using any number from 0 to 10, where 0 is the worst provider possible and 10 is the best provider possible, what number would you use to rate this provider?

Why don't all doctors or advanced practice clinicians have a rating?

In order to have enough data to measure and compare, a health care provider must have at least 30 completed patient satisfaction surveys. Surveys are included for a period of 12 months from submission.
