Keith P. Berkle, M.D., M.B.A., and a dad to four girls, knows how important it is for teens and adult women to get the care they need throughout their life journey. He is experienced in all aspects of gynecologic care, surgery, ambulatory gynecology, sexual dysfunction and vulvar disorders. 

An exceptional surgeon, Dr. Berkle is passionate about helping women get back to their healthiest lives as quickly as possible. He is an expert in minimally invasive surgical techniques, including laparoscopic hysterectomies, myomectomies, and single incision laparoscopic gynecologic surgeries. 

“For many patients who may have been told by their physicians in the past that they’re going to need large, open incision, traditional surgeries and have to spend a few days in the hospital, we’re now able to perform those surgeries laparoscopically on an outpatient basis and have them home the same day.  Often, in a week or two, they’re back to work and living their healthiest lives. Today’s minimally invasive surgery techniques are a far cry from the surgeries a patient’s grandmother or mother may have experienced.”

Dr. Berkle is the president of Virginia Women’s Center and leads our executive committee and board of directors. 

Dr. Berkle received a Bachelor of Science degree from Virginia Commonwealth University and his medical degree from the Medical College of Virginia. In addition, Dr. Berkle completed his internship and residency in obstetrics and gynecology at the Medical College of Virginia, where he was honored with the Berlex Teaching Award, the Everett Wetchler, M.D. Award and the Excellence in Teaching Award. Dr. Berkle served as the chief resident in obstetrics and gynecology at the Medical College of Virginia. He is board certified in obstetrics and gynecology and is a fellow of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology.

Dr. Berkle grew up in Goochland and served many years as a volunteer firefighter-paramedic, which fueled his desire to go into medicine. He is active at his church where he plays drums in the contemporary service and he also enjoys working on cars in his spare time. Dr. Berkle loves surfing and cherishes trips to the Outer Banks with his family.
