I have been someone who has gained and lost weight repeatedly over the years with no sustained success in keeping the weight off. I went to Dr. Berkoff and he created a personalized plan for me – nutrition, exercise, supplements – that was about sustained lifestyle and behavioral change. I lost 40 pounds and have changed the way I live based on his program. What Dr. B did made sense, continues to make sense, and is the way I want to live my life – healthy, happy and full of energy. I couldn’t recommend anyone more highly -Tim Carpenter, CEO, EngAGE
Dr. Berkoff is amazing! I was very skeptical about seeing a chiropractor at first, but due to my intense back pain from straining some muscles on multiple occasions while moving (sitting down, getting up, bending over, and even walking were painful activities), I had to get something done. I looked on Yelp and saw that he had good reviews and the location was great (close to UCSD and same office as my primary care physician), so I went. He pinpointed exactly which muscles I injured and treated them promptly, in addition to giving me "homework" to do in terms of stretching, diet, and exercise. He's super easy to talk to and gives very clear directions on how to maintain a healthy lifestyle--and not just in terms of muscular health. Today was my last visit, and hopefully I'll never injure my back again, but if I do, there's no question that I'm coming back to Dr. Berkoff. Elly F. San Fran, Ca
A good chiropractor takes his time to diagnose your pain and problems. The fact that Dr. Berkoff does his business out of a medical doctor group office says a lot - they have confidence in him. There's few chiropractors that'll bother to diagnose your situation. When I came to Dr. Berkoff, I had severe low back pain. He went through the usual test battery to check for pinched nerves and a history of injury - I had neither. Then he had me get an MRI and wouldn't treat me until I did. Once my films came back, he made the diagnosis and started me on a diet plus an exercise program - that's right. Two years later, my back pain is manageable and rather low. I'm healthy and have strong ab / core muscles. - Refugio- San Diego, CA
I was told to see Dr. Berkoff by my internist due to an injury that had occurred while I was training for a half marathon. I had torn my IT band 2 weeks before my very first half marathon. I called and his wonderful office manager and she got me in right away (that same day). I saw him 3 days a week for the next 2 weeks. I was able to complete my first half marathon and even though I re-injured myself after he has been a terrific support for me. I would highly recommend him to anyone that has Chiropractic needs or sports rehabilitation. I can honestly say that he is amazing and I would not still be running if it wasn't for him. - Stacy T.- San Diego, CA
Dr. Berkoff is an excellent and professional chiropractor. He listens carefully to your issues, and thoroughly explains his diagnosis. He uses a combination of methods to relax and adjust you, and will typically recommend some exercises and stretches for you to do as well. I've been very happy with the results. He doesn't pressure you and only does what you're comfortable with. He also always runs on time so you're not stuck in the waiting room forever. J.D.-San Diego, CA
Dr. Berkoff is a lot more than just a chiropractor. He's a nutritionist, physical therapist, and amateur shrink, too (in that he'll actually dig into what's really going on in your life, offer his honest advice, and remember the next time you see him.) And, he takes a much more scientific approach to problems than I've seen compared to any other chiropractor I've ever been to. (I've been to at least 6.) I've seen Dr. B dozens of times. Dr. Berkoff has completely changed the way I eat, and I've lost 20 pounds following his advice. He encourages exercise and has coached me on proper form for running several times. And, as if that weren't enough, he is the first physician to properly diagnose the problem I was having and help me recover. He can be a little on the blunt side sometimes, but sometimes that's what you need -- a little tough love.
I highly recommend going to see Dr. Berkoff for all your musculoskeletal dysfuctions. He's helped me more than all of the other DCs, MDs and ODs I've seen over the last 10 years combined Tyson-San Diego, CA
Hands down this is the best and most knowledgeable Chiropractor I have ever been to!
I am a senior and have used many doctors over the years but Dr Berkoff actually fixed me!
My last guy said I had carpel tunnel and I almost had surgery.....Then I needed an emergency adjustment and I went to Dr Berkoff as he was in my building and close to get to. In 2 treatments he had my hands numb free and now I know when I do certain activities I'll run into the same problem...it all stemmed from my back. I go in maybe once every 18 months when I have lifted something heavy and cause the problem.
Everyone I have referred has had good luck!
Dr Berkoff is one smart guy. You won't be disappointed!! Sarah A.- San Diego, CA
I was greatly impressed. He stayed after hours to fix my back. My father went to see him 10 years ago. Dr. Berkoff was the first medical professional to diagnose my father with MS. Later on the doctors with the fancy tests caught up. I highly recommend his services. Danail D.-San Diego, CA
After two years of lower back pain, I thought I had tried everything...going to the doctor, six months of physical therapy, x-rays, heat, ice..and nothing worked. NO ONE could figure out what was wrong.
And then I got smart and called Dr. Berkoff. He had worked wonders for me eight years ago and I am not sure WHY I waited so long. Within TEN MINUTES of my first visit he diagnosed the problem, put me in traction and FIXED it. I was practically in tears because I couldn't remember what it was like to NOT hurt. Not only did he fix my back but he also gave me a strengthening routine that has really made my back stronger. We also did a running clinic to learn proper form so that I don't injury myself in the future. Dr. Berkoff is top of my list of favorite people. I cannot recommend him highly enough.Jennifer H. -San Diego, CA
Dr. Gregory Berkoff is a life changer! I had pretty bad lower back pain and after just a few adjustments and physical therapy sessions, I seriously felt like a new person. I never believed in chiropractors until I started noticing the drastic difference in my lower back. He definitely deserves 5 stars. He is very personable, and shows genuine concern for each individual patient and their specific problem areas. He also gives you some great fitness tips and makes you want to become a healthier person. He is down to earth and will tell you what you need to hear but not in an offensive way. I am very grateful that I went to see Dr. Berkoff because I wake up pain free now and can workout without worrying about my lower back problems. I always feel very comfortable going into his office and his receptionist is very nice as well. His adjustments are quick and easy and you'll feel so amazing after you leave his office. He also follows up with his patients and makes sure they are keeping their adjustments at home so that it remains permanent. I would recommend him to anyone who needs a good, trustworthy chiropractor!- Christine C.- San Diego, CA
I have had pain in my shoulder for the past ten years. I have been to several different doctors. I have been to a surgeon, who recommended surgery, to an orthopedic, who gave me cortisone, and to a masseuse who massaged me. Then, I met Dc. Berkoff. After evaluating me, he said that my pain was caused by stress, and he recommended me to a "breathing therapist". I went, since I felt that I did not have anything to lose. Now, thanks to Dr. Berkoff's sessions and to the breathing techniques, I am finally without pain. For the first time in ten years, I can sleep, drive, and exercise without pain! I cannot recommend Dr. Berkoff enough. Alessandra R.- San Diego , CA
Dr. Berkoff was my first experience with a chiropractor. I was skeptical at first because of various things I had heard about chiropractors in general. From first meeting him, I was able to tell he had a unique approach because he genuinely cares about his patients as individuals. His concern lies with treating the entire individual rather than solely alleviated back pain. As a triathlete and runner, my body is extremely important to me. I was experiencing a common runner's injury and Dr. Berkoff not only helped treat the injury but he worked on my running technique, taught me relaxation and strengthening exercises, and an overall awareness of my body. Now I can prevent re-injury because of implementing his lessons.
There are so many great things I can say about Dr. Berkoff but the best way to understand what he is able to do for you and your life is to take the first step and make an appointment. His office manager is really helpful and gladly answers any question she can. -Courtney W.
Everyone should have someone like Dr. Berkoff in their life. My experience in the past was that chiropractors try to crack your back 3 times a week at first, then twice a week for a while and then once a week (or month) for the rest of your life.
To use the same term for Dr. Berkoff as these "Crack" heads is inappropriate. Dr. Berkoff is a gifted scientific healer. I've been seeing him on and off for years. I was skeptical at first when my Family Practice Dr. sent me to Dr. B to address the muscle tension I had in my back around my shoulder blades. I had this discomfort for years. Dr. B told me that if I followed his protocol, the pain would diminish or go way in a matter of weeks (4 or so if I remember correctly). I did the exercises he recommended and discomfort I had for years disappeared.
A while later he designed an exercise regiment for me. The regiment was by no means easy. Actually it was very challenging, but with his guidance and support, I completed the regiment. Not only did my body change (lost about 4 inches on my waist), but so did my relationship to physical activity.
On top of these life altering contributions, what I love about having access to Dr. B is that when I have a sports injury, he seems to diagnose the alignment and prescribe the right treatment with excellent precision. I think this is because he is also active and athletic so he has first hand experience with common injuries. Lastly, I love that he's always on schedule. I never spend more than a few minutes in the waiting area.
The bottom line is, if you want your body to be healthier, I highly recommend a visit. Tomer E.- Pacific Beach, CA
I had severe spinal pain in 2007. Dr. Berkoff has treated me periodically, as needed, for this, for carpal tunnel, and for various other physical issues due to rampant clumsiness on my part. I used to go to a traditional chiropractor, to no avail. Dr. Berkoff uses a variety of methods beyond chiropractic, including ultrasound and physical exercises, and for the last 5 1/2 years I have been active and healthy and pain-free. He absolutely understands the workings of the human body. I recommend him highly to everyone. Susan- San Diego, CA
Dr. Berkoff is an excellent Doctor. I went to him because I was injured doing repetitive ballet type exercises which caused chronic pain in my piriformis muscle. He really took care of the problem with a combo of deep active release, adjustments, and electrostimulation. After a series of visits I was completely cured of a condition that prevented me from exercising properly for almost a year. I am so grateful. His office is always clean and the receptionist, Yuki, is so friendly. I highly recommend Dr. Berkoff.Pamela- La Jolla, CA
