Caring Doctor and Staff - what Patients are saying

“Dr. Berenholz cares so much about his patients and will make whatever problem you have, better.  He doesn’t just perform procedures, he changes lives one woman at a time.  You won’t find a better surgeon or kinder person to perform this procedure on you!  I had been in contact with the staff at LVRI of Michigan for years and she was so patient with all my questions and concerns.  She coordinated everything perfectly.  I was able to show up and have everything done the same day.  The team at the Surgery Center was top notch.  I never doubted for a second that I was in the best hands possible.  If you are considering having this procedure, do it and by Dr. Berenholz!”
