I know I am alive today because of the care and treatment protocol I received and continue to receive from Dr. Bernstein. I was literally close to death and never would I have guessed I would end up feeling as great as I do today. He knows his stuff; do what he says, like it or not: it worked for me.

Very condescending, lacks compassion. Made fun of dietary changes I made that helped me, and brushed off symptoms I was experiencing.

No way Ii would recommend him. His manner was totally arrogant, and he botched a procedure to install a stomach drain by inserting a g tube instead. I was stuck with this for 6 weeks until scarring allowed it's removal

He didn't listen to a word I said. He refused to talk with me about any of my symptoms. He gave me no advice or instructions on how to improve my health. I basically left feeling without hope. I will NOT be going back.

Dr. Bernstein immediately put me at ease. His obvious expertise did not overshadow his kindness. He was delightful and spent more time with me than I ever expected. HIs demeanor was friendly, casual yet it was obvious that he is a superb physician. He is a specialist and thank goodness I won't be needing his services often but would recommend him in bold and blazing colors. Fantastic. I did not have to wait long, but even if I did I wouldn't mind a bit. I would know he was giving needed care.
