my confidence level went from 0 to 100. I truly appreciate the amount of time the doctor took to explain all the things I wanted to know and he also referred me to another great doctor.

Dr. Bernstein has been patient, helpful and kind since my first contact with him in 2013. I cannot say anything but good for him--and am so grateful he was the physician who saw me at the onset of my problems and through the years to the present. It would be difficult to say how many times my family and I have spoken of his excellent care. and been thankful for his knowledge, patience and expertise in my treatment and visits through these 5 years.
