Cedar Knolls, NJ |
I have been bringing my son to Dr Jay Bernstein and Dr. Mayumi Mori now for the past 4 years and both doctors are extremely friendly and caring. They take their time with the patient and also they answer all questions that I had. The office staff is super friendly with the kids and super helpful on the phone when making appts and informing you in regards to any insurance questions you may have. I will continue with this practice and these doctors until my son ages out of their practice.

His bedside manner was HORRIBLE. He was basically pawing my daughters face and telling her, hush, be quiet I'm not hurting you! HORRIBLE. He just wanted to get the exam over with and did not want to take the time to slow down and be gentle with my child. He was annoyed when I asked specific questions to clarify his findings. Front desk staff was rude as well but... That is the least of the problem. This man really has no business working with children.
