Be warned, he always has a smile on his face but that's all your getting. Forget about him spending any time with you, actually examining you or explaining your diagnosis. Unless you're seeing him for a common sinus infection, I would recommend seeing a Doctor that will actually examine you and care about you as a patient.
I chose Dr. Bernens based on a recommendation from another practice which I had contacted because I was specifically seeking a female physician to become my Primary Care Physician. I did a lot of research in making my selection.
My first meeting with Dr. Bernens, as have been my last three monthly visits, was exceptional. Her bedside manner is exceptional, and it is easy to talk with her. She is well informed and compassionate. I am very pleased with the care rendered over the past 4 months
Friendly and to the point. He's always got a smile on his face and he explains things in a way that's easy to understand. I appreciate those things.
Dr Vaccarella has been my Dr for many years. In my book he the best. I always feel like I am in good hands. He is thorough, he always is willing to listen and very caring. Because of him, his staff and Dr Carmen I am blessed to be a Cancer Survivor.I will be forever greatfull.
Dr. Brenens is attentive and acts as your partner in your personal healthcare. She takes all the time necessary to learn about and then address your concerns. I wholeheartedly recommend her if you are in Chesapeake and need a family physician.
AS a Family Practitioner I find him very thorough and friendly. He takes the time to explain conditions and will attempts to squeeze you in without a regular appointment. I've never had to wait more than 30 mins (1X) with the norm being 10 - 15. Would recommend him.
I waited an hour in his office to be seen today. When i displayed my frustration for waiting, he advised me there were other patients ahead of me. I understand that however; he was chatting with his staff about the pending snow for 20 minutes! He was rude and made my appt as quick as possible while engaging more with his other patients. I will not return and taking my family to another physician. I have never felt so belittled by a doctor in my life.
