Our journey with Dr. Berkun started with our prenatal appointment about a month before our daughter's due date; I highly recommend making a prenatal appointment with Dr. Berkun to get to know him and his approach to care. When our daughter was born, Dr. Berkun visited us each day during our hospital stay -- which was our first introduction to his attentive care and thoroughness with our infant. What makes Dr. Berkun especially unique is his approach to empowering parents and providing us the information we need to care for our child in between visits, but remains accessible in the event of an emergency. Dr. Berkun always thinks ahead, proactively anticipates questions a parent may have, and explains his thought process in a way that is approachable for parents. Our experience with Dr. Berkun and his staff has been exceptional.

Dr B is incredible and we regularly recommend him to friends who are looking for a pediatrician. He treats each child as a unique individual and truly takes the time to understand and treat them accordingly. Ample time is taken to make sure the parents have all their questions answered. We've never felt rushed and truly couldn't ask for anything more from our child's doctor. We feel lucky to have found such a caring and knowledgable doctor.

Our clild’s pediatrician in Stamford CT. Extensively caring and detailed oriented! Has been helping us with our first child from before birth and we could not ask for a better doctor!

Dr Berkun has been our child's doctor for all 6 years of his life. He's extremely knowledgable and treats the parents with respect. Our son loves him and we can see why. He's great with the kids and makes time for his patients and their families. He takes the time to explain and discuss so we always walk out of the office feeling confident and calm.

We couldn't ask for anything more; Dr Berkun has been incredible to us and our son since the day our child was born in 2017. He's really thoughtful and knowledgable and takes the time to explain everything to us. We feel involved in the process and it's a learning experience for us every visit. Dr B is extremely kind and our son actually looks forward to his doctor visits!

Dr. Berkun is our trusted Pediatrician for both of my children and has been there for us for well visits, sick visits and even urgent responses when my son suffered from croup. I appreciate that he knows my children so well and provides a thorough examination and check up. Unlike other offices with multiple Pediatricians where you don't know who will be caring for your child, Dr. Berkun provides the 1:1 care that is so important as your child grows and develops. I whole heartedly recommend!

We are very lucky to have found Dr. Berkun. You can tell that he cares about our family. He was there from day one and always takes the time to explain his evaluations. The education helps calm us down as first time parents and prepares us for the future. Thanks for everything Dr. Berkun

Dr. Berkun is an incredible pediatrician. He cares about his patients, is the most thorough doctor I have ever experienced and he has a wonderful sense of humor. We feel very grateful to have found him as Dr. Berkun is the type of doctor you imagine for your children but are convinced no longer exists. When my daughter was born, he was the one who showed up the hospital - not once, but twice during our short stay. His attention to your children, you as parents, and all the dynamics at play make him truly unique and always worth the wait ;-) He is always thinking ten steps ahead and ensuring complete care for our daughters - his patients, including my children, are lucky to call him their doctor.

Dr Berkun is incredibly thorough, patient, kind and helpful. He is as wonderful with our children as he is with us in educating us on our children's health. He is always going the extra mile and the type of doctor you simply don't think exists anymore - his personal care is unparalleled.

Dr. Berkun has taken care of my kids for years. He knows his stuff. When one of my kids was little, we brought them to an after hours walk-in clinic, and none of the doctors had any idea what was going on, but the following day Dr. Berkun knew right away what it was. Another time, Dr. Berkun detected a fairly rare issue with my other child and the specialist couldn't believe that my pediatrician picked up on it. So to have this happen multiple times, when Dr. Berkun took the time to be thorough enough to pick up on things that other doctors would miss, it means that I am very impressed with him.

Dr. Berkun has taken care of my teenagers since they were born. I cannot recommend him enough. Dr. Berkun has, on several occasions, detected issues, one of which was very serious, when other doctors did not. When one of my kids was little, we brought them to an after hours walk-in clinic, and none of the doctors had any idea what was going on, but sure enough, Dr. Berkun knew right away what it was. And on a more serious occasion, Dr. Berkun detected a fairly rare problem in my other child and to this day, the specialist praised Dr. Berkun for picking up on it. He is incredibly thorough and detailed. Sometimes this means his appointments can run a little late, but in the grand scheme of my kids' health, it has been worth it.

Dr. Berkun is a fantastic doctor. He explains things thoroughly and cares about all his patients. He tends to run late, which is often because he is explaining things so thoroughly to other patients. It can be frustrating sometimes but overall his care is well worth it. He explains things clearly and calmly, is great for first-time parents and encouraging at every stage. I highly recommend him!

5 out of 5 stars

Dr. Berkun gives committed, focused, undivided attention unlike any doctor I’ve ever met. He does not rush you out of the room, takes all of your concerns seriously no matter how trivial you may think they are, and he really gets to know you and your whole family to give the best care possible. The only downside is that because of his uniquely impeccable care for his patients, he does run late so each visit takes about an hour if not an hour and a half. Regardless, I still go to him because of the top notch care I receive for my children.

5 out of 5 stars

Both of my children have been with Dr. Berkun since birth. He is extremely thorough, knowledgable, and compassionate. At times, my children have had some anxiety regarding shots and such, but he has always gone out of his way to keep them calm. He takes time to explain procedures and next steps and never makes you feel rushed. We are very pleased with his care and could not imagine our kids health in anyone else's hands!
