Your trust is our top concern.

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

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

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.
