Dr. Arthur Bergman was born in Takoma Park on Aug. 17, 1952. Throughout his life, Erik Bergman served the community as a highly respected ophthalmologist. In fact, California’s Loma Linda University awarded him a Medical Degree in 1979. Consequently, His training led him to become an eye surgeon missionary to Swaziland, South Africa. To be sure, he was a leader and member of FaithStep, but first of all, he was a father, husband, humanitarian, and physician.
