“I have always felt that it is important for patients to be allowed to help in making decisions regarding their medical care. It is never a good idea to tell someone they HAVE to do something. Rather, by explaining all of the reasonable options available, the patient is allowed to help in making the best decision for themselves. This increases not only the likelihood of patients of sticking with any medical care plan but also increases their satisfaction since they were able to have a say in their care. This goes along with giving patients the time they need whenever they need it.”

Biography

Dr. Berlin has been providing care to women of all ages for over thirty years. Throughout this time, his major goal has been to have his patients take an active role in their medical care by incorporating shared decision making as a routine. This has allowed his patients to have a better understanding of all of the various options that are available when it comes to medical issues.
Dr. Berlin graduated from the University of Maryland School of Medicine and trained at Sinai Hospital. He is on the staff of St. Joseph Medical Center and Sinai Hospital.

Dr. Berlin is the past president of the Maryland State Society of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. He is also a consultant for Medical Mutual Liability Society of Maryland and devotes a large part of his time to developing programs for patient safety and risk management.

Dr. Berlin has two children, six grandchildren, and has always said that one of the benefits of being an Ob-Gyn is that you get to travel through life with your patients. This has resulted in patients not just being patients, but also an extended part of the family.
