Treatment Philosophy

One reason I chose to work at Fox Chase is because we have the best tools available to accurately assess and treat complex gynecologic conditions. We have the latest technology to perform surgery, and as a multispecialty center, we can handle unexpected findings as well. This results in better outcomes for my patients.

I like to offer my patients options rather than dictating one treatment approach. My mother had breast cancer, which has given me better insight into the issues facing my patients. As the mother of three, I have a broad life perspective for this field. And I realize that my patients don't always understand the medical information being presented to them; I take the time to translate the information so they can understand the terminology, which helps them in the decision-making process.  Partnering with my patients to develop a treatment plan that is both medically and personally appropriate is the most rewarding aspect of my practice.

Patient Stories

Judy Tomarchio


Judy Tomarchio


Judy Tomarchio didn't spend her honeymoon lying on a beach or cruising the Mediterranean. Instead, the South Philadelphia native found herself on the operating table at Fox Chase. In 2007, Judy, who was 54, was being treated for leiomyosarcoma, a rare kind of cancer of the soft tissue that can arise from smooth muscle cells anywhere in the body. "We moved the wedding up so we'd be married before the surgery," recalls Judy. "My Dave was with me from day one - he was my rock."

As a person who has been diagnosed and treated for various types of cancer, I can say with certainty:  Run, don’t walk, to Fox Chase Cancer Center. I have given this piece of advice more times than I can count because I know that where you begin your cancer treatment really does matter.

    The doctor seemed to be in a hurry ( as previous visit). I don't really remember to much of any conversation. The visit lasted less than 5 minutes. I was disappointed. [...] This visit was so quick. I'm sure she is very educated about her field, its just she has no bedside manor. She didn't want to get to know me really. I did want to discuss other personal items but she gave me the impression she did not have the time and ran off. [...]

    I was so grateful that Dr. Bergman was able to see me in such short notice. I had a terrible experience a few days prior at another institution. The patient care there was just awful. Dr. Bergman made me feel comfortable, explained my course of care which made me feel so much better. I have all the confidence being in Dr. Bergman's care now. Very thankful, I was so impressed with the patient care that is given at Fox Chase. Thank you!
