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."
