Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Worst doctor I have ever been in contact with. Not only should she not be in pediatrics, she also shouldn't be a doctor. She is extremely rude. Copy and pastes her "notes" from the previous appointment. Has the nurses do everything and makes you feel like your child is wasting her time. In all honesty, if you have an appointment scheduled with Dr. Bern cancel and find another doctor. Even if cancelling means waiting a month to see another doctor. The wait time to see another doctor is worth ever second, rather then wasting your time being seen by a "doctor" with zero compassion for your child, zero time for your child and an extremely bad attitude. If it was possible to provide zero stars on this rating, I would.

Should not be in pediatrics, one of the worst Dr. I have been to. Always feel rushed and she has no bed side manners and is very negative.

The worst doctor I think I ever had. She is very stubborn, and was unorthodox when it came to treating someone for UC. Please avoid her if you can.
