An Intelligent but, Sometimes, Egotistic Man
After a year of unsuccessful diagnosis at a Family Doctor Clinic, I decided to try a psychiatrist; and ended up being appointed to the well-reputable Dr. Berner. At the first clinic, he gave me the low-down of all his knowledge about bipolarity. Oh boy, he seemed like he knew his sh** alright! He threw down a med for me to try (called Lamotrigine), however it didn't seem to do much. A month later, it's my next clinic. He puts me on another med, Lithium. This one finally did the trick in combination with Lamotrigine. It was like I finally struck gold!! Although, every-so-often I'd get terrible migraine's. So for it, he hit me with another med, Verapamil. However, I told him I was unsure about the new one because I still had a depressive episode two weeks ago. Plus the fact that I haven't felt normal in three years! Anyways, he told me ""Trust me, I'm a doctor and you'll be getting migraine's regardless."" I eventually agreed. So here I am, a week after taking Verapamil and I just feel straight up depressed. His humbleness took me off the wrong street. So I'm just going to stop taking it. Like sometimes he'll act like some ""mad scientist"" knowing everything, but really he's a human like you and I. However for the most part, he's a real smart guy. 4/5 rating.

Complex Brilliant Psychiatrist
Dr. Berner is eccentric, challenging at times, and brilliant. He cares about his patients but he will not tolerate bull and he does not suffer fools gladly. I have to say that he has helped me out over the past 5 years and intervened to help save my marriage. My husband is very grateful and also sees him now too.He can really be annoying when he is having a bad day. But he tells you up front that he is having a bad day. I value his expertise, honesty, and caring. He is willing to try new things and gives the patient a lot of control and responsibility over their care.Seems that people either love him or hate him. I think he's the best.

Refreshingly straight-up & No BS
Gotta say Dr Berner was 1 of only 3 docs few years back certified to prescribe Suboxone and altho I tried a lower dose and disappointed before- he stated= No wonder..I was waaaay undermedicated for my tolerance. Let me just say that the FIRST DAY I took the proper dosage, (after 10yrs of painful addiction, methadone treatment with horrible side effects, 2 months cold turkey and a 40# weight loss, I almost gave up on life) that was the day of my rebirth and I must say-IT WAS LIKE I never had an addiction!! I was back!!! Not to mention I have owed this man $$ and NOT once has he complained or threatened collections, he is now a priority and being paid off. I thank god for Dr Berner and I am very confident in his love and compassion for fellow humans, even addicts. Bless my Doc Berner!!!...

Very best experience, a life saver!
After years of counceling, rehashing all the ""bad things"" that have happened in my life, and not getting anywhere, I am so grateful my family practitioner sent me to see Dr. Berner. I had a good first visit, talked about benefits of taking meds vs. their side-effects, and counceling vs. pharm. therapy. I was terrified of being labeled. This imprisoning ""label"" still has not, 4 years later, happened with Dr. Berner. He allows room in my treatment for me to change and ride out the rough spots, adjust things when we need to, but mostly, helps me see with every visit that I am getting better. Life is finally stable, not perfect, not easy, but the rollercoaster is over. Dr. Berner has some quirks, but so do I. It makes him more approachable to me. He is a real person, good and bad days, but I hope if you are looking for a psychiatrist who knows meds, and is actually experienced and educated enough to make a starting diagnosis and give you something to help right away, then adjust as you come to know each other, please try this doctor. He has been in Woodinville for a long time and works with Evergreen paging system, so can be reached immediately by pharmacist for those occasional hiccups. His receptionist is now there during the day, I can't think of a time in the last couple years when I have not had a call returned same-day. I have read these reviews before, but never wrote one until now. I just had to help a teen who was is crisis, and took him to Dr. Berner. I was worried about medicating, as he is still going through puberty, but Dr. Berner was not only able to get through this boy's quills, but has changed his life. He can now listen, filter, and control his impulses for the first time since I've known him! It is night and day! Dr. Berner knew what to do for him, was bold and confident and RIGHT!! What may seem cocky, or brash to some reviewers is an education and more importantly an experience level that may not have an equal on the eastside. That cannot be

Horrible Experience Dont Go To Him!!!!!
When i walked into his office i was the only one in the little waiting room and he walked by me about 4 times and said nothing to me. Then he told me to come into his office and he was lookin at his text messages half the time and the other half he was asking me questions and then cutting me off while i was answering. He would go on these little tangents about people who he has helped. I left with a perscription for ADHD medication and he told me to take 3. When i went and got my priscription the pharmacy say that they have never seen someone pricribed this much. So i stared taking 1 and i didnt see anything happen and so i decided to take 2 and my body freaked out and i felt so sick. I called Berners emergency line to talk to him and he told me that i was fine and that it was stupid of me to call the emergency line and was so rude. I will never be going back to him.
