Patient Comments (5)
in York, PA |
I had a good first visit with her. She is very thorough and discusses everything with you and also allows you to speak without interrupting you which has been a issue with other dr's who just want the shortest time possible with you. You get a educated and caring doctor who wants the best for you. And I also wanted a doctor who didn't just want to push pills on me and send me on my way. And found that in Dr. Bernal. Her staff was also very friendly and helpful as well. I'm very hopeful now :-)

Holistic doctor with a bad bedside manner. On more then one occasion she has made me very uncomfortable & the last time was very rude. This doctor is all about vitamins, physical therapy, stretches & shots. She also makes me feel like her GOAL is to point out everything you ARE NOT doing.

She has been very helpful as a physician. Has sent me for needed physical therapy and referral to another physician who was able to help. Has prescribed helpful medication without overdoing it and prescribed helpful equipment. She continues to be a wonderful doctor to me.
in Mount Wolf, PA |
I am very unhappy with this doctor. She will ask questions and if I don't fully understand what she's asking, she has snapped at me. She makes me very uncomfortable. She does all kinds of measurements of the bones and body and then starts sending you to other doctors almost like she's playing a guessing game. I have wasted thousands of dollars on the specialists and tests that she has lead me to. One of the specialists even said he is not sure why I was referred to him for my problem.

Overall my experience with Dr. Bernal has been a negative one. While she acts pleasant and friendly she lacks integrity and fixates on trivial matters which do not relate to the condition for which I was referred to her for.
