Patient Reviews

Listen closely to what has been giving issues and then explained MRI and X-ray results and what he felt was the next step to get me back to as normal life as able.

I went misdiagnosed for years by numerous providers and therapists (15+) for severe low back/sacral pain. I saw Dr Berry who listened intently to my history and coordinated a diagnostic SI joint injection for me. It has been life changing and I can’t thank him enough for the time he spent with me. After 3.5 years of crippling pain I finally have my quality of life back and working full time again.

Dr. Berry was very forthcoming & communicative in regards to my surgical procedure & what to expect after surgery. He even came by my hospital room to check on me the next day. This was my first surgery &: he reassured me my operation was common & everything would be just fine.

Listened to me and all my questions and concerns

Up front with options and very personable. Very prompt and timely office visit also!

Dr. Barry was the best. He was clear and concise on everything that was going to happen before, during and after surgery. Answered all my questions and made sure I was confortable and understood everything. Highly recommend!

Highly recommend Dr. Berry. He has now done my neck and recently my lower back. He doesn't do unnecessary surgery. He is straight forward, explains everything and why things need or not to be done. I am a person who chooses natural treatments. Dr. Berry listed to my questions and concerns and takes the time to make sure you understand what and why of things. Love the staff that work with him.

Dr Berry explained my problem very clearly and gave me time to ask questions, and gave me answers. He is an orthopedic spinal surgeon.

I was very worried about back surgery the Ora group and Dr. Berry were outstanding!

Dr Berry was very professional and thorough in explaining my issue. His recommendations were were inline with all the imaging I had done. He did not pressure me into making a decision right away. I am confident that if I do proceed with a procedure he will be the best physician to have.

Dr. Berry explained my options sufficiently and detailed the surgical procedure he would perform if/when I go that route.

I started seeing Dr. Berry in 2018 and he’s done cervical and lumbar fusions on me. I’m a very complicated case as he’s mentioned but I always feel I’m in good hands with him. He’s always truthful and straightforward with what he see’s and what he thinks the next step will be. Very knowledgeable as well.

Out family has had great experience with Dr. Berry. Most recently I consulted with him on surgery for my lower back to treat stenosis. He was very objective in his diagnosis, and the complexity of my situation. As much as I would have liked him to say he could easily address my pain, he did not try to "sell" me on a surgical procedure. He did back surgery for my wife and she was very happy. I believe you can be very comfortable and confident working with Dr. Berry.

Dr. Berry is the best. He takes the time to talk to you. Never rushing through a visit. Very professional, a caring man, a good man. His staff is second to none. My wife and I have known Dr. Berry several years and feel very comfortable to recommend him to all.

Very impressed with Dr Berry. Explained everything thoroughly. Honest and to the point.

I fell and broke all three bones in my right ankle. Dr.Berry and his team has been wonderful! They give me a sense of direction by educating me on my injury and what is next to come. His team keeps me in the light while I’m in this unknown place of recovery . Thank you Dr.Berry and staff for all that you do ! I would highly recommend you to see Dr.Berry or staff of ORA for anyone your orthopedic needs.

Dr. Berry took the time to review my chart in-depth prior to my appointment and really dedicated his attention to me and my concerns. I left feeling assured and confident about the next steps.

Dr. Berry is the best. He explains everything to where it's easy to understand. He takes his time with me at every appointment. I definitely trust him.

Dr gave details of my MRI and what my options were.

Dr. Berry exceeded all my expectations. He was easy to talk to, knowledgeable and honest. I am absolutely confident in his care!

The first thing Dr. Berry asked was for me to tell him in my terms what was going on, how I felt, even though he had already analysed my preliminary tests. I appreciated that. He thoroughly discussed my options for treatment and let me decide what to do. Excellent.

Well I don’t know how to start this off. Saying that Dr.Berry will go down in my book as a HERO !!!!! I personally believe he knows exactly what he is talking about when he comes into the room to speak to you and inform you on your prognosis.I being defiant with everything in life went against his advice and opted for a “shot” to kinda numb the pain til I could make it to the off season. Long story short it didn’t work long, til it did exactly what he said it would do and blew out completely demobilizing my left leg! Which the original problem was right side so it had gotten worse by 3xs within a months time! So I went back to the ORA to see the Dr.Berry again and he came in went right to work for me lined up surgery the very next day! Went in for surgery no hiccups or problems came out of surgery walking unassisted ready to go! I suggest anyone looking for a surgeon that is smart ,caring and that’s willing to take care of the issues you’re going through with your body pick him. Dr Berry in my opinion is the best there is!

Very informative and caring really like him

Was great to not be rushed during my visit to talk about my back issue and come up with a solution to fix the issue. Had to wait a little longer than hoped in exam room, but I am sure he was talking in depth with another patient also. Good experience in all.

Excellent advice and honest straightforward counsel.

Dr. Berry was prompt, polite, and extremely knowledgeable. He took the time to listen to my concerns & gave honest recommendations. Very impressed by him and his staff. Highly recommend!

This place runs like a well oiled machine. I was in and out quickly, but not rushed. The staff is phenomenal and I spoke with my doctor directly over the phone to discuss my options.

Dr. Barry is a very good doctor. He takes his time and explains things very well. His "bedside manners" are excellent. He also did.my.neck surgery several years ago and I've had no problems. He will try other methods before doing any surgery, physical therapy, cortisone shots, etc.

Dr. Berry was very helpful, told me all of my options in a way that made it very easy to understand. I believe he was very honest with me and my diagnosis, gave me realistic expectations and helped me decide which route I needed to take. I know several people that have seen him and gotten the same treatment, and I am thankful I was able to get in to see him.

After two attempts to relieve my knee pain and numbness after my nearly year old knee replacement I appreciated your honesty when you told me the back surgery would not help with the pain I'm having, although I was a little disappointed , I understand !

Excellent professional experience with Dr Berry and his staff.

I am very pleased and thankful that I was referred to Dr. Berry for surgery to repair a herniated disc. He is a great doctor! I am 2 weeks post-surgery and feel better than I have for the past 3 months. Dr. Berry is an excellent surgeon, and is available without waiting months to schedule surgery.

Great. Big help

Dr.Berry is an excellent Surgeon whom I recommend if in need of a lumbar spinal fusion!!! Treat me with genuine care and professionalism.

Fantastic Doctor. Explains everything clearly and concisely. Listens well and is compassionate. He didn’t jump immediately to cutting, but helped me try non surgical methods before deciding surgery is necessary.

I really felt that M.D. Michael Berry was very Thorough in finding the issue in my back after my work accident. I look forward to our follow up appointment. I highly recommend this doctor. He knows his stuff and treats you with respect.

Michael Gahagan—-Dr Martin totally respected my decision to opt for a steroid injection at this time as opposed to a knee replacement, which I realize I will eventually need.

Dr. Berry is a great doctor, he is direct and to the point. Had a knee surgery scheduled then back flared up again, he made it easy to know my next move. Difficult to do physical therapy after a knee replacement with my back at it's worse. He also treated my husband when he broke his back, definitely recommend him.

I saw Dr. Berry regarding severe back pain that I have been experiencing for the past year. I had previously had x-rays and an MRI done with another physician. Dr. Beery was able to view the MRI and also had additional back x-rays taken at the time of my appointment. He discussed the lack of options available to me due to the severity of my condition (severe deterioration from L1 through L5). He was very honest in his view that he didn't consider surgery to be a viable option for me and I appreciated that. I also appreciated the time he took to discuss my situation and what my feelings were regarding surgery. We both agreed that surgery- for me - would not be in my best interest. It is so important to me, when talking with a doctor, to know that they are willing to listen to you, to hear your concerns, and then talk with you to find the best answer for your individual situation. Dr. Berry never made me feel that he was rushed - he made me feel that, as his patient, I deserved his total attention. And that is what my previous doctor (who did the original x-rays and MRI) failed to do. Dr. Berry gets a well-deserved five-star rating from me.

My first experience at ORA was wonderful, and I feel I will be in good hands once I start physical therapy after herniated disc surgery. Staff is very friendly, helpful, and efficient, even though it was extremely busy at the time of my appointment. The painkillers I have had to take lately make me really nauseous and disoriented, and the staff at ORA went above and beyond to make sure I was comfortable and taken care of. Dr. Berry is also very friendly and explained things respectfully but in such a way that I could fully understand how the procedure works. I trust that it will go very smoothly, but I will post another review in a few weeks :)

Finally a doctor who was straight forward with me. He explained to me what was actually going on in my body and that there is a solution! I very much appreciated that from my whole soul because I have been suffering for so long and I truly thought no one was going to come to me with a solution. I thought this was my forever, my future, a nightmare that’ll never go away. But it’s not and he made that clear and I thank you for that, Dr. Berry! Can’t wait to move forward!

Dr. Berry and his nurse Ms. Terri are absolutely awesome!! They are the best at taking care of their patients. Thanks guys

Performed cervical neck surgery came out great explained everything in great detail great doctor

Dr. Berry was up front about everything that he was going to do. Very easy to talk with about things. Would wreck amend he to anyone

Very nice & knowledgeable Good staff

Very thorough, and did a fantastic job on identifying the problem, and actually showing me my results from scans and x rays, not many doctors still do that, they just send ya home with a paper saying what's wrong, you did both. I'm both nervous and scared for this surgery, but excited that I'll be in your hands. Thank you again for your time!

I felt very at ease with Dr. Berry he explained everything very well. Everybody was very nice, helpful and made me feel like they knew me.

Excellent visit Dr was upfront totihonet and made me confident in what I believed. He reinforced what my thoughts were.

Dr Berry is amazing. Several years ago, he solved a long-time problem with my lumbar spine. He listens and takes me seriously. I have a new issue in my upper spine and instead of blaming it on old age, he is seeking out quality info to diagnose my newest issue. I appreciate this kind, respectful care.

From the check-in to the check-out everyone was very helpful and kind including the fed-x man who helped me get a wheelchair for my husband. Doctor Berry is very good..explaines everything and doesnt rush through an appointment. Our go-to place for great care.

Dr. Berry and his staff were friendly and professional to deal with. They gave me good information and answered my questions. They also kept my GP updated on the status of my low back procedure. My GP was very happy that Dr. Berry would be working on my back. Annddd so was I. 12 weeks after my surgery and I feel like I have my life back. There are still some issues that will take time to resolve, but I can now move in ways that I haven't been able to in a very long time. I look forward to enjoying walks, bike rides, gardening and all the other activities that I have missed for so long. You may even see me on the dance floor again 😁. Thank you Dr. Berry.

Dr Berry is the best!!! I had debilitating back pain, sciatica, tingling and numbness in my legs….. we made the decision to go forward with surgery and I feel better than I have in decades!!!

My regular Physician sent me here to have Dr. Berry evaluate my exrays and MRI done of my back. I was having back spasms and pain in my hip a month ago. She said I needed to see a surgeon and had me thinking my back was in horrible shape. He was very kind and told me I didn't need surgery... that what is causing my back spasms and hip pain was degenerative osteoarthritis. He told me he could refer me to the pain management clinic if needed. Very nice Dr and all of the staff there was super friendly. This was at ORA in Clinton. Thank you Dr. Berry

I had s/p left L5-1 TLIF W PPS lumbar back surgery.

He wasn't able to help my particular condition but he referred me to another physician who hopefully can. He seemed genuinely interested in offering me help and seemed to really want to help ease my pain. Very easy to talk to and he actually listened!

He said he didn't feel comfortable to do my surgery and that I needed a surgeon who does the kind of surgery that I need all the time. I really appreciated that he would say that rather than do a surgery he couldn't do or feel comfortable doing.

Dr. Berry is very professional and I’m feeling confident and comfortable with my upcoming surgery. I have no doubt that he will have me feeling my best again real soon!

Dr Berry was so nice and explained everything so I could understand. He remembered my daughter whom he had seen simetimr back. It’s amazing he remembered her with all the patients he sees. I trust Dr Berry to do my surgery. Can’t get a better doctor. His nurse Lynette is fantastic. The staff at IRA are very helpful.

I’ve been treated for several different problems over a period of time by ORA and each time has been a good experience. Everyone seems to be in a good mood and that makes a big difference to me as a patient

Very honest and caring. Referred me to hand specialist since his schedule would not allow for quick treatment.

All the doctors I have dealt with have been very professional and care about the problems I have.

We met with Doctor Berry after having x-ray done of back and was told that Leo has arthritis and would be able to have another surgery because of age. We thank Doctor Berry for all the help he gave us both with back surgery.

So far… I am incredibly pleased with Dr. Berry. He thoroughly explained what issues I was having and the procedure that will be needed to resolve it. He is very kind and answered all my questions.

Dr. Berry is fantastic! From the minute I was checked in everything was perfect. Almost no waiting at all. Dr. Berry spent time with me figuring my lower back issues out. He came up with a plan and I am on the path to getting better. Top to bottom this was one of the best visits to any doctor appointment. Thank you ORA staff and Dr. Berry!

This doctor took time out his busy day to see me, an unscheduled patient in pain. Staff is all amazing and I feel like I’m in good hands

I was just there for an MRI but I couldn’t do it and Dr. Berry took time out his day to look at me and help me. The whole staff is amazing and LGBTQ+ friendly!! I feel like I’m in great hands ??

I was very pleased with the time that Dr.Berry took to explain my situation and how we will proceed with my treatment. I’ve been a patient with ORA before and everyone is pleasant.

I was referred to Dr. Berry due to chronic back pain that had become so bad I struggled to walk. Dr. Berry diagnosed the issues and provided several options outlining the pros and cons of each. I elected to have surgery with Dr. Berry. The results have proved to be better than expected. There has been tremendous relief and the ability to get active again.

Dr. Berry was incredibly knowledgeable and forthcoming. He was patient, kind and a good listener. I highly recommend him.

I had spinal stenosis surgery on May 26. From the beginning I felt very comfortable and confident with Dr Berry. Wonderful bedside manner and overall nice person. Alot of pain after surgery, but I am getting better. Very confident that I will get back to normal. It will take awhile but it will happen. Thank you Dr Berry And thank you your staff and Genisis East I would recommend Dr Berry for anyone with severe leg and back pain

Had answers of what was wrong with my back in less than a hour after almost six months of pain going somewhere else. Thank you!

Dr. Berry listen and explains everything about what is going to be done to you.

Yes, I would strongly recommend Dr Berry to family and friends. Dr Berry has operated on both my cervical and lumbar spine with positive results. Prior to my surgeries I met with Dr Berry; he explained the diagnosis and how the surgical procedure would relieve my pain. Dr Berry took his time in his explanations and gave me all of the time I needed for questions. He did not pressure me and encouraged me to talk with my family before making a decision. I felt confident that Dr Berry had my best interest in mind in encouraging me to weigh my goals v risks. I feel very positive about the outcome of both surgeries.

I have had excellent care from Dr Berry and would highly recommend him to my friends. He has that “Bedside” manner to match his skilled hands. He always addresses my questions with answers that help. I have referred friends to him.

Dr. Berry took the time to explain my results and answered my concerns. He was very professional and understanding.

Very professional staff that listen and do all they can to help you. Very knowledgeable , friendly and kind. I have always been totally satisfied and never had any problems with any of the staff. Great place highly recommended

He was on time, and was very knowledgeable about my condition. He was straight forward, spoke like he knew I wanted the facts and gave a honest assessment.

Polite and very skilled

ORA staff are all very friendly and efficient from the time you check in until you check out. Dr. Berry has performed 2 different back surgeries this past year. I am very pleased with the results. I have also seen Dr. SANJAY. HE is so kind, never in a hurry. He takes time to listen to you. ORA IS wonderful. Cudos to all who work there.

My visit with Dr. Berry was for the purpose of assessing an acute problem as well as to reassess a previously diagnosed issue. Dr. Berry was very helpful in explaining options for my diagnostic and possible treatment options.

Excellent care, great timely service

Surgery July of 19 and Dr. Berry insisted It would take time for my nerves to come to life. After 6-9 months I began to feel pain again and worked with therapists and was begging for something to happen. Just short of my new surgery date for a stimulator ( and exactly what Dr. Berry said) it could take a year to fully feel normal. 1 year and a dew weeks and my back feels great, the best I have felt since my accident and credit to the entire staff at ORA for making me feel as close to whole again!!! Only place I would recommend Thank You, M. Hess

Wonderful experience with Dr Michael Berry he is a caring young dr who is great

Dr Berry is a great doctor, he was honest and told me up front about my problems and was really nice to talk to.

DR Berry was the best. I appreciate his straight forward approach right from the start. He is an awesome surgeon I would refer anyone with back issues as I had to definitely see him . He helped me get back to normal life again. Thank you Dr Berry

Very good explanation of procedure to be used.

It was very positive appt. And very professional made me feel comfortable and like my ailment was important to them. Want to thank them.

He exceeded my husband’s Expectations. He is very through about explaining the procedure that he had done. Dr Berry was very confident That this will take care of the pain. Would have no problem referring people to Dr Berry for Back and Spine surgery.

Doc Berry is honest, insightful, and a decent human being. Thank you doc!!!

Dr. Berry was very professional and comforting. I was very impressed with him and the knowledge he had during my visit.

Everything handled smoothly from checking in to scheduling mri and next appt

Always in a great mood! Very professional. Great doctor!

Dr. Berry is a great doctor. He explains what he's going to do in a manner which is easy to understand. I have had 2 surgeries done by him and I would recommend him in a heartbeat.

I'd met Dr. Berry years ago. He was able to use that consultation to advise our course of action.

After a long road of back and leg pain, I had a laminectomy on L3-L5 and Dr Berry assured me that he was very confident that this would help. After the surgery I was free of nerve pain. A few months down the road I experienced nerve pain in my right leg and had hoped it was not anything that had gone wrong. Dr Berry again assured me that he had given my nerves tge room they needed and he explained my nerves may be wakinhg up. I have tried a lot of adjustmenyts and exercises and I am finally pain free.

With my first meeting with Dr. Berry I felt a sense of professionalism. He came right to the point of explaining my health situation and the path he recommended for my full recovery.

Excellent

I had lumbar fusion surgery to alleviate spinal stenosis. Results were immediate (day of surgery). He thoroughly explained the procedure he would use for the surgery. He also explained to my wife how the surgery went shortly after it was completed.

Dr. Berry and his staff were very friendly & courteous. Dr. Berry did an awesome job listening to the issues I was having and explaining to me what the MRI results revealed. He also did a great job at laying out my options to remedy my back pain. When the appointment was over Dr. Berry told me to feel free to call him with any issues or questions. I definitely left his office feeling my well being was a genuine concern of Dr. Berry and his staff.

C6 pinch nerve, Dr. Berry did a great job explaining my options. Will be moving forward with his recommendations.

The painkillers I have had to take lately make me really nauseous and disoriented, and the staff at ORA went above and beyond to make sure I was comfortable and taken care of. Dr. Berry is also very friendly and explained things respectfully but in such a way that I could fully understand how the procedure works. I trust that it will go very smoothly, but I will post another review in a few weeks :)

Finally a doctor who was straight forward with me. He explained to me what was actually going on in my body and that there is a solution! I very much appreciated that from my whole soul because I have been suffering for so long and I truly thought no one was going to come to me with a solution. I thought this was my forever, my future, a nightmare that’ll never go away. But it’s not and he made that clear and I thank you for that, Dr. Berry! Can’t wait to move forward!

Very thorough, and did a fantastic job on identifying the problem, and actually showing me my results from scans and x rays, not many doctors still do that, they just send ya home with a paper saying what's wrong, you did both. I'm both nervous and scared for this surgery, but excited that I'll be in your hands. Thank you again for your time!

Dr Berry is amazing. Several years ago, he solved a long-time problem with my lumbar spine. He listens and takes me seriously. I have a new issue in my upper spine and instead of blaming it on old age, he is seeking out quality info to diagnose my newest issue. I appreciate this kind, respectful care.

From the check-in to the check-out everyone was very helpful and kind including the fed-x man who helped me get a wheelchair for my husband. Doctor Berry is very good..explaines everything and doesnt rush through an appointment. Our go-to place for great care.

Dr. Berry and his staff were friendly and professional to deal with. They gave me good information and answered my questions. They also kept my GP updated on the status of my low back procedure. My GP was very happy that Dr. Berry would be working on my back. Annddd so was I. 12 weeks after my surgery and I feel like I have my life back. There are still some issues that will take time to resolve, but I can now move in ways that I haven't been able to in a very long time. I look forward to enjoying walks, bike rides, gardening and all the other activities that I have missed for so long. You may even see me on the dance floor again 😁. Thank you Dr. Berry.

Dr Berry is the best!!! I had debilitating back pain, sciatica, tingling and numbness in my legs….. we made the decision to go forward with surgery and I feel better than I have in decades!!!

My regular Physician sent me here to have Dr. Berry evaluate my exrays and MRI done of my back. I was having back spasms and pain in my hip a month ago. She said I needed to see a surgeon and had me thinking my back was in horrible shape. He was very kind and told me I didn't need surgery... that what is causing my back spasms and hip pain was degenerative osteoarthritis. He told me he could refer me to the pain management clinic if needed. Very nice Dr and all of the staff there was super friendly. This was at ORA in Clinton. Thank you Dr. Berry

He wasn't able to help my particular condition but he referred me to another physician who hopefully can. He seemed genuinely interested in offering me help and seemed to really want to help ease my pain. Very easy to talk to and he actually listened!

He said he didn't feel comfortable to do my surgery and that I needed a surgeon who does the kind of surgery that I need all the time. I really appreciated that he would say that rather than do a surgery he couldn't do or feel comfortable doing.

Dr. Berry is fantastic! From the minute I was checked in everything was perfect. Almost no waiting at all. Dr. Berry spent time with me figuring my lower back issues out.

I was referred to Dr. Berry due to chronic back pain that had become so bad I struggled to walk. Dr. Berry diagnosed the issues and provided several options outlining the pros and cons of each. I elected to have surgery with Dr. Berry. The results have proved to be better than expected. There has been tremendous relief and the ability to get active again.

Yes, I would strongly recommend Dr Berry to family and friends. Dr Berry has operated on both my cervical and lumbar spine with positive results. Prior to my surgeries I met with Dr Berry; he explained the diagnosis and how the surgical procedure would relieve my pain. Dr Berry took his time in his explanations and gave me all of the time I needed for questions. He did not pressure me and encouraged me to talk with my family before making a decision. I felt confident that Dr Berry had my best interest in mind in encouraging me to weigh my goals v risks. I feel very positive about the outcome of both surgeries.

Surgery July of 19 and Dr. Berry insisted It would take time for my nerves to come to life. After 6-9 months I began to feel pain again and worked with therapists and was begging for something to happen. Just short of my new surgery date for a stimulator ( and exactly what Dr. Berry said) it could take a year to fully feel normal. 1 year and a dew weeks and my back feels great, the best I have felt since my accident and credit to the entire staff at ORA for making me feel as close to whole again!!! Only place I would recommend Thank You, M. Hess

After a long road of back and leg pain, I had a laminectomy on L3-L5 and Dr Berry assured me that he was very confident that this would help. After the surgery I was free of nerve pain. A few months down the road I experienced nerve pain in my right leg and had hoped it was not anything that had gone wrong. Dr Berry again assured me that he had given my nerves tge room they needed and he explained my nerves may be wakinhg up. I have tried a lot of adjustmenyts and exercises and I am finally pain free.

Dr. Berry and his staff were very friendly & courteous. Dr. Berry did an awesome job listening to the issues I was having and explaining to me what the MRI results revealed. He also did a great job at laying out my options to remedy my back pain. When the appointment was over Dr. Berry told me to feel free to call him with any issues or questions. I definitely left his office feeling my well being was a genuine concern of Dr. Berry and his staff.
