Dr. Stephen Bruce Berman


Dr. Stephen Bruce Berman, Doctor of Chiropractic, Master's of Science in Neuro Physiology, Bachelor's of Science in Electrical Engineering, and free spirit, passed away on January 13, 2019 in Austin, Texas.

A memorial service was held at Temple Beth Shalom.

Steve was born in Washington, DC to Harold John Berman and Joan Eleanor Felstein on September 9, 1950. His view on the world and his perspective on life was greatly affected and influenced by the assassinations of the 60's, the civil rights movement, and especially the Anti-Vietnam war protests. He travelled the country and the later the world, learning from his experiences as he went along. After running his own business in D.C., he discovered Chiropractic and went back to school to become and independent Doctor of Chiropractic for 30+ years, improving and saving thousands of patients' lives. Steve was always keen on healthcare and stayed emphatically true to his Hippocratic oath, going to great lengths to help when he was people were in pain, knowing he was the best.

He loved adventure, geology and mining, inventing and registering patents, and developing an integrated physics theory that explains our Universe. He even became the eldest alligator wrestler in Colorado! He was befriended and beloved anywhere he travelled. Above all, he was a loving father and always prioritized spending time with his two sons as they grew up. To many he was a doctor, a classmate, a business partner, a teacher, a client, a friend, family or even a soulmate. His legacy will live on in the memories of these dear people whose lives he touched, articles he published and technique perfected ( https://youtu.be/2Mfhq7JhNos ).

Way to go Steve!

When you went in to get treatment, Dr. Berman made you feel very at ease and took time to understand your areas of concern. He listened to you and after listening, he understood his craft so well he knew exactly where you needed relief. Because of him, I now have a through understanding of chiropractic care. His complete legacy will continue to touch many lives.

I watch Dr Berman's 'Complete Chiropractic Adjustment' video a few times a week. His thorough and knowledgeable approach to his work, along with his voice, is really relaxing and comforting. His friendly and welcoming demeanor make him feel like a personal friend. He will continue to enrich my life! Rest in peace Dr Berman 🌻

my favorite memories are of us sitting outside in the evening eating dinner together as the deer came up to visit...

Steve was one of the most caring people I’ve ever known. I met him 15 years ago and he quickly became one of my best friends. His knowledge of human anatomy, chiropractics, and physics were astounding. He was not your ordinary chiropractor. Steve was always about helping, not profit. He would offer his services to people even if they didn’t have the means to pay him. One of my greatest friends, Steve will always live on in my memory.

I was blessed to have met Dr. Steve Berman (my kids called him Dr. Steve) about 24 yrs ago wgen i moved into his neighborhood. I was a single parent, a hairstylist, a mother of twins. I had sustained injuries which made me handicapped from doing my craft, and taking care of my twins. After three visits to Dr Steve I was up and running again. He also took care of my twins. We became friends. Had dinners together, travelled together and many many talks about many things. I will miss my frien, Dr Steve Berman on so many levels. Such a great loss to humanity!

It was my great blessing to know Steve, because of his knowledge of Chiropractic care he has have helped me and my whole family these past 25+ years.
My memory to share and I will never forget it was when Steve made a house call and adjusted our dog, before Steve arrived Blue (our beloved dog) was in such pain he couldn't even shake his head , as soon as he sat on the floor in front of him Blue knew you were there to help and quickly put his head on your lap eager for the help. He didn't even know you but he trusted you as we all did.
You will be missed and I am proud to call you my friend.
