From the time that he was old enough to pick up a stethoscope, Dr. Eric Berg had always dreamed of being a physician. Raised near Philadelphia, he made his way south through North Carolina and then to Emory University for medical school. There was where Dr. Berg discovered his love for surgery, and in particular, Otolaryngology. It is a challenging field that provides the opportunity to manage – both medically and surgically – the highways that connect us to the world. The sounds we hear, the odors we smell, the language we speak, the expressions we make, the food we taste, and the air we breathe, are all effected by the health of the ears, nose and throat.
Dr. Berg’s residency training at Emory University led him to a fellowship in Pediatric Otolaryngology at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. He then continued his career as an Assistant Professor of Otolaryngology at the University of Texas Southwestern, where he taught medical students and trained residents. During his tenure, Dr. Berg specialized in the care of masses of the head and neck, including vascular malformations and masses of the thyroid gland. His peers voted him one of the best pediatric otolaryngologists in Dallas for two consecutive years.
While in Dallas, Dr. Berg met his wife and they decided to trade the flat plains of Texas for the rolling green hills and mountains of north Georgia. In Atlanta, they enjoy exploring local museums and parks – always stopping to appreciate the restaurants along the way. Dr. Berg enjoys international travel, running and biking and plans to get back into triathlons. He grew up a Braves fan and has become an avid Atlanta United supporter – but will always cheer for his hometown team, the Philadelphia Eagles.
Dr. Berg is a Diplomate of the American Board of Otolaryngology and a fellow of the American Academy of Otolaryngology – Head & Neck Surgery. While an expert in all areas of pediatric otolaryngology, Dr. Berg brings his special expertise in the care of complex head and neck masses, including thyroid nodules and vascular malformations as well as sinus and airway disorders.
