What People Say About Dr. Brent Bernstein, DPM
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

My athletic son had a sesamoid fracture in his foot that was misdiagnosed for 8 weeks which lead to the bone healing in 2 pieces. The going thought was to remove the bone by a podiatric surgeon so we were referred to Dr. Bernstein. Dr. Bernstein, a surgeon, took surgery as last resort. He studied up on this difficult case & presented a safe non-surgical treatment, a bone stimulator. He prides in developing trust. A surgeon, not quick with the knife, is a trustworthy doctor.

I felt Dr. Bernstein was very knowledgeable about the care of wounds. He explained everything he was going to do and always showed me what to look for in the wound. He answered all of my many questions. He had a great bedside manner and tried relaxing me with his kind words. My wound is healing and I feel it is because of his expertise. I appreciate his medical background in healing patients.

Dr Bernstein performed two foot surgeries on my feet for different reasons. Both surgeries were very successful. Would definitely return if any more foot problems arise.

When I went to the wound center at St Lukes Hospital I was a nervous wreck about what the doctor was about to do. Although I was very nervous Dr Bernstein was very encouraging to the approach and treatment that I was in need of. He gave me a bit of hope that this long standing Venus Ulcer would actually heal. The treatment that he prescribed actually did heal it up and educated me on how to keep my skin healthy and healed up.

Parking is terrible, consistently make patients wait 45mins-1Hour over scheduled appointment times. Front office staff is not friendly. Dr. Bernstein shows no compassion for his patients value of time. Care meets standards, office facilities and staff need improvements.

I went to see Dr. Bernstein for my plantar fasciitis. I've been in pain for months before i finally decided to see a podiatrist. He took care of that pain within few minutes. Explained to me in detail on what i needed to do to make sure the pain doesn't come back. I already recommended him to a couple of my co-workers.

Treated me for Charcot of my right foot, I was referred by another doctor who told me that Dr. Bernstein was the best in the field if Charcot. My only problem was scheduling my first appointment. It took 3 weeks to schedule the initial appointment. After the initial appointment I was seen on an average of 2 to 3 times a month for a year. He was always professional, and upbeat altho I am sure I was not always the ideal patient.

Tried to tough out pain of Charcot foot for several years. Dr. Bernstein told me he could fuse ankle but would have to be off foot for 3 to 5 months. Very happy with result and lack of pain. First time in years I can participate in activities.
