    Very unprofessional, sarcastic & rude!
    Englewood, CO |
    This is the most Unprofessional Mickey Mouse OPERATION I have ever been to. My first 2 appointments they left me sitting in the room for 1 hour both times and changed my appointment time twice on me. The 3rd and final time my appointment was at 4:30, they called 3 days before and changed it to 4:20. Mind you the appointment was made 30 days out. I showed up at 4:25, 5 minutes late and they turned me away. Not only did I not get to see the Dr to get my pain Meds refilled but no new appt. "A JOKE"

    Dr. Bernadini does not seem to be in the business of pain management, but causing pain. He did a spinal nerve ablation on my daughter WITH NO PAIN KILLER or anesthetic. She now has trauma, nightmares and is about to go into therapy. He is arrogant and not at all empathetic or caring. Skip this one.

    After 12 months, horrible back surgery. Dr said I was disabled for life. When he moved to new location, it costs him more, I had Medicaid, he dropped me. With no referral. Could of cared less. Money talks. It's been a nightmare, finding someone to take over PM..... 5 impinged nerves ...stenosis,,. Fusion and scar tissue that is blocking the nerves after surgery.., nerve chronic pain going down inside of legs , difficult to walk.... CAN ?.specialized doctors abandon patients? Always compliant.

    I had sciatica from my back all the way down my right leg. I had been incapacitated for two months when Dr. Bernadini put me in Swedish Hospital on two different occasions and gave me shots. It completely gave me my life back! I would certainly recommend him to anyone!

    I have been seeing Dr. B for almost two years, and I can't say enough about him. He takes time to really understand my specific issues, he is very knowledgeable about various treatment options, and he's very skilled at what he does. I've had several procedures.Mine is a very complicated case, but Dr. B never gave up, never brushed me off as a hopeless case, and shows compassion every time. What's more, when I mention to my other docs who my pain doc is, they all rave that he's their favorite!
    in Castle Rock, CO |
    He was proud of his work and confident which was what I was looking for in a Doctor. He also said if you were my sister this is what I would hope you do. That meant everything to me.
