Dr Bernstein is always so caring and willing to listen patiently to what is going on with my migraines. She has been a lifesaver - cutting my migraines in half! Great clinician and bedside manner.

I was with Dr Bernstein for almost 10 yrs. She started out ok, offering solutions and hope to treat my migraines which became daily and intractible in that time. She abandoned me, basically, when it became clear that I wasn't an easy fix. Also, she was dishonest with me on many occasions, and missed *huge* health issues on MRI results. I'm now paying for her neglect, 10 yrs later. I've learned my lesson. Always go over your own labs, be suspicious when a dr passes you off to another clinician.

Dr. Bernstein is someone I would highly recommend. She is very thorough during our visits and makes the time to answer all of my questions and make sure I have the support I need. She is incredibly responsive when I send her messages using the patient site and she has always been very collaborative with my other physicians.

Dr. Bernstein spends quite a bit of time with her patients & I never feel rushed. She put me on a new regimen of meds and wrote up a script in case I needed ER treatment away from home. She also allows her patients to pop-in for migraine treatment during her office hours. This may not seem like much, but it has changed my life for the better. I'm very grateful to her & her staff. Her treatment has greatly improved the quality of my life and provided me with speedy migraine relief!
