Now I have more pain and complications after having surgery with Doctor Helen Bernie in February 2021. I regret having this surgery. Daniel A.

Review for Dr. Bernie

Dr. Hoffman repaired a non healing fracture in my foot several years ago. He did a great job. So when my other foot started bothering me a few months ago I went back to him. Received an injection that took my pain away.

Review for Dr. Trippi

He is the best! My teeth seem to be extraordinarily difficult to work with and HAVE been since I was a kid, (I'm now 68). He is wonderful; SO patient, conscientious and careful. & His staff are just as conscientious and friendly as HE is!!
