Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Upon arrival for my New Patient Appointment on Feb 15th the front desk clerk informed me that my appointment had been changed from in-person visit to a telephone call adding that no in-person appointments would be honored until March. I was never informed of this change by Dr. Bernens' staff; moreover the My Chart web site clearly indicated that I had an in-person appointment, and the doctor's patient portal made no mention of it. A second front desk clerk (Tayler Nelson) came out of hiding from the back rooms a few minutes later, as well as Dr. Bernens, neither displayed any curiosity as to what the problem was and why I was anger. Instead , with a security guard standing behind them, they "ordered" my caregiver and myself to leave the premises! It is noteworthy that the fist clerk lied at first stating that Dr. Bernens was not in the office. He was, in fact, with another patient in a back room before he poked his head out the door. I immediately cancelled my concierge membership.

Dr. Bernens' practice was just what I was looking for. He spends longer appointment times to get get to know your history and problems, and he takes his time to explain his recommendations and treatment plans. I highly recommend him if you're looking for a doctor who builds a strong doctor / patient relationship.

My wife and I had been satisfied patients for more than 15 yrs. as we aged (we are in our 80's) my wife developed a number of maladies which seemed to be increasingly challenging to the doctor. At one time he recommend she be set aside under palliativecare, which was strongly rejected. He finally, with no discussion nor warning sent a letter terminating our relationship telling us to get another doctor. I do not believe he any longer subscribes to the oath he took when he became a doctor.
