after meeting Dr. Bernstein I understood why he was highly recommended by my primary physician. His wonderful reputation stems from him being an excellent diagnostician along w/an extremely caring heart. He was overseas at the time of my surgery in Manhattan yet kept in close touch throughout. I was deeply touched. A new devoted patient- Bklyn N.Y.

I am devastated since 2015. My mom passed at Beth Isreal Kings Hwy Brooklyn ny. Dr. Bernstein called me and said, "your mother DIED". I said what? It was late at night and I asked if I come where would she be?, He answered, "the morgue'. He was giggling with a co-worker at the time. When I visit my mom at her last days, she was shaking violently, very pink in color. I was so numb, I didn't know what to do or say. I'm still having nightmares from this.

Shows no interest in his patient. Spent 45 minutes+ doing paper and computer work past my appointment time with no other patients to see but me.

Dr. Chaim Bernstein has been treating me for COPD/ENPHEMZEMA since 1995. I am now 83 years old. He is kind, caring and has kept me alive and breathing comfortably. He makes himself easily accessible to my daughter in the event she has any questions regarding my breathing problems. I would recommend Dr. Bernstein to anyone that has that elephant sitting on their chest.

I had a very serious condition when I went to urgent care. They said I had lung cancer. I went to Dr. Bernstein who diagnosed the problem with precision, care, accuracy and proper guidance. He reassured me it was a goiter, not cancer. He guided me through the whole process. He is treating me now for an upper respiratory infection again with care, dedication and healing me. He is the most caring, brilliant doctor out there.
