He will be missed. My deepest condolence to the family.
i just called the office to make an appointment and was given the very sad news. my family and i had the priviledge of being a part of dr berman's practice for the past 25 yrs. i shall miss his warmth and caring manner, his professionalism and our many wonderful conversations. we talked of family and religion, the different vacations we had enjoyed, sports and his baby, the special olympics., and his very special superbowl ring. just last year we were talking of our grandchildren. he always had such beautiful photos of his family. i would like to wish dr. berman's family my deep condolences on their very great loss. baruch dayn emet. janis klein and family
THE PASSING OF IMPORTANT,LOVING AND RESPECTED PEOPLE LIKE PAUL TRAVELS FASTER THAN LIGHTING. I RECEIVED A PHONE CALL FROM A MUTUAL FRIEND IN CALIFORNIA A FEW DAYS AGO WHO WAS AN UNDERGRADUATE AN PACIFIC UNIVERSITY WHILE PAUL AND I WERE ATTENDING THE COLLEGE OF OPTOMETRY. PAUL WAS A YEAR BEHIND ME BUT ALWAYS HAD IDEAS AND THOUGHTS OF A MAN FAR AHEAD OR HIS TIM. PAUL WAS ALWAYS SMILING AND GENERATED A POSITIVE ATTITUDE ABOUT SCHOOL , FRIENDS AND LIFE TOWARD ANYONE IN HIS PRESENCE. HE WAS ALWAYS THINKING "OUTSIDE THE BOX" LONG BEFORE THE PHRASE WAS COINED. PAUL VISITED MY HOME ON CAPE COD IN THE EARLY 80'S AND STILL SMILING TO WHICH HE SAID"I HAVE ONLY BEEN HERE FOR TEN MINUTES AND I AM ALREADY RELAXED! THAT WAS OVER 30 YEARS AGO. I LATER ATTENDED BRENT'S 13TH BIRTHDAY INTO MANHOOD WITH MY SON DANNY. WE ALL HAD WONDERFUL TIME. I NEVER SAW PAUL AGAIN BUT HIS WORK IN VISION CARE AND SPORTS VISION KEPT HIM IN THE FOREFRONT WITH NUMEROUS ARTICLES AND JOURNAL PUBLICATIONS. HE WAS ALWAYS OUT THERE DOING WHAT HE DID BEST;EDUCATING,HEALING AND LOVING ALL THOSE AROUND HIM. WE HAVE ALL LOST A GREAT OPTOMETRIST,A GREAT FRIEND, AND MORE IMPORTANTLY A GREAT MAN. I WILL MISS YOU, PAUL.
WITH SINCERE WISHES TO THE ENTIRE BERMAN FAMILY,
DANA C. RICKER, O.D.
Dr.Paul Berman was one of the most caring and passionate Doctors I have ever had the great pleasure of knowing He not only treated me as a patient but also made me feel like a special caring friend for the past 25 years. I always looked forward to seeing him as he greeted me with the most caring smile each and every time I saw him. I just found out today and it came as a complete shock with the tears flowing downing my face immediately as I learned of the great sorrow of his passing. My warmest and sincere sympathy to his family and the entire staff at FOCUS Eye Center. I will surely miss him with all my heart.
To the Berman Family. I have know Dr Berman for many years. So shocked to hear of his passing. My heart goes out to the family. God bless.
