Dr. Bergman is married with three vibrant young children. He loves caring for children and observing their instinctive creative nature. He believes that families should be provided with the best care possible to optimize their children’s wellness and developmental progression. He is a community advocate in the schools. And he maintains his own optimal wellness by being optimistic, enjoying his family, and maintaining a very nutritious menu and exercise regimen as a triathlon athlete, tennis player, and swimmer.
