Personal

Dr. Erica Berven grew up in St. Paul, MN. As an undergraduate at the University of Minnesota, she worked as a junior scientist in a children’s cancer research laboratory at the University’s Cancer Center. Upon graduation, Erica relocated to Rochester, MN to attend the Mayo Medical School. She subsequently completed residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at the Mayo Clinic in 2006. “I enjoy the wealth of backgrounds, age, and life experience that my practice in OB/GYN provides.” Dr. Berven chose to practice at Park Nicollet because of the collegiality and team approach of the Park Nicollet OB/GYN group practice. Erica’s practice is special in that she is a fierce advocate for her patient’s gynecological care. She brings a high standard of care to her practice with the philosophy, “I understand the need to listen rather than preach. I will explore multiple treatment options for my patients - - both medical and surgical.” Erica is pragmatic as she provides individual care for each patient; her focus remains on the wonderful diversity of patients within her care. Dr. Berven has a special interest in minimally invasive gynecological surgery, menstrual disorders, adolescent health, contraception, obstetrics, premature menopause, and office-based gynecological procedures - - including ESSURE, an office-based sterilization procedure. When not a Park Nicollet, Dr. Berven works as a volunteer to uninsured and underinsured women at the Uptown Neighborhood Involvement Clinic (NIP). She enjoys exploring common interests in art with her husband (who is a local artist and a college art instructor). She also enjoys being a frustrated knitter, a novice landscape gardener, as well as an active collector of vinyl 45-rpm records and midcentury memorabilia. In her prior lives, she was a Macalester College radio deejay, president of the Synchronized Swimming Club at the U of M, and a thrift store cashier. While academic endeavors have informed her practice, her outside interests have invested sensitivity and humor to her collaboration with patients.
