Dr. Bernens' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Bernens "As your primary care physicians, we at Cornerstone Primary Care offer personalized medical care to meet your needs and help you navigate the complexities of health care to obtain optimal health. We believe in building better health together."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Bernens "My philosophy of practicing medicine is building better health care together. I feel that in order to be a healer, I need to develop a healthy doctor-patient relationship where I believe in you and you believe in me. My medical school training was in Ohio at Boonshaft Wright State University Medical School and Internal Medicine Residency training at UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento, California, and I have been practicing medicine for over 21 years.

I feel as a doctor I can act as a consultant to you and your health and well being. I can offer longer appointments of 30 to 60 minutes to listen to your stories. I want to give you a more caring approach and more empathy to provide a highly personalized approach to your medical care.  

I want my patients like you to be healthy, fun people living life to its fullest. The ability and honor to be a part of your life as your primary care physician drives me to get up every day as a doctor and to make a difference in your life."

Patient Comments (1)
in Concord, CA |
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.
