Norman Berman, Mt. Sinai physician
Shaker Heights, Ohio

Dr. Norman Emanuel Berman, distinguished Radiologist and Chief of the Department of Radiation Therapy at the former Mt. Sinai Hospital, died August 21, 2005, from complications of heart disease. He was 84 years old.

Born in Washington, D.C., he received a bachelor's degree from Georgetown University and graduated from Georgetown University Medical School. He did his residencies in New York City at Mt. Sinai Hospital and Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.

Dr. Berman joined Cleveland's Mt. Sinai Hospital in 1950, (a teaching hospital affilitated with Case Western Reserve University), and became an integral part of cancer treatment in Cleveland.

In 1958, he was one of the first radiologists to introduce mammography to Cleveland. He was the go-to man for fellow physicians wanting another opinion on a mammogram.

He retired in 1989, and for his use of the most advanced clinical procedures was made a recipient of the Mt. Sinai Hospital Distinguished Service Award

A fellow of the American College of Radiology, Dr. Berman was a past president of both the Radiological Society of Cleveland and Mt. Sinai Medial Society. He also belonged to the Eastern Oncology Society and the National Adjuvant Breast Cancer Project.

Dr. Berman served on the boards of both United Cerebral Palsy Association and The Temple-Tifereth Israel. He was a longtime supporter of the arts.

Norman also held season tickets to the Cleveland Browns football games since the late 1950s, and traveled often to Cleveland Indians' baseball spring training sessions in Arizona and Florida.

He was a straightforward and humble man. He loved telling jokes and stories, and had such a laugh... it was infectious. People wouldn't remember if they were laughing at the punch line or his laughter.

His lively sense of humor belied a heart problem he learned of in his late 30's. The malady didn't keep him off the dance floor, especially to big-band swing. "He had no inhibitions," family and friends remember.

"He never complained when he was feeling bad, never whined," quote friends, "He was one of the most hopeful people you'd ever meet."
