we couldn't be more thrilled to be working with Dr. Bernardi during our fertility journey. She goes above and beyond in her time and explanation of our treatment. I feel like an active and involved part of my care and this autonomy is why we continue to utilize northwestern for reproductive medicine.

I don't know if I could ever say enough good things about Dr. Bernardi and all of her team. Everyone we have worked with has consistently exceeded my expectations at this visit and EVERY visit we have ever had. We never feel rushed. All of our questions are answered completely and sometimes repeatedly if it doesn't sink in for us the first time. Additionally she takes the time to make personal connections. She cares about the success of our family physically and emotionally.

Dr. Bernardi seems to have a genuine care for her patients, which is much appreciated in an age when medicine can oftentimes be impersonal due to time constraints and insurance constraints.

Dr Bernardi is exceptional. Besides being professional, and extreamly knowledgeable she truly goes that extra mile to make one feel comfortable, and show her concern and care. She is beyond patient and calming. She listens, and than offers valuable advice. Truly she is an exceptional provider with such enormous amount of knowledge and care. NWH is lucky to have Dr. Bernardi on their team.

Dr. Bernardi has always been great. She thoroughly explains the process, what she is looking for, etc., but is also always relatable and kind. This experience wasn't nearly as terrifying as I anticipated it being, and much of that is because of the doctors and nurses.

I have never met a more thoughtful, kind, smart, and engaged doctor in my life. If I didn't have tendinitis in my hands I would write a novel about how amazing she was. I have a complicated case and she's one of the first people to be willing to take it on and make me feel like I could trust her.
