Dr. Bernstein is a fabulous Dr. He listens to you. I mean he really listens to you. He is so willing to go the extra 9 yards to do whatever it takes to get you on the right road and improved health. He will refer you to a specialist to make very sure you have the best care available. He is warm and steady like a rock to calm any fears you might have. You could not find a more competent, caring, informed doctor anywhere. He is a rare and wonderful example of what a doctor should be. Susan Vicari

Dr. Bernstein is the best physician I have seen. He actually cares about the patient, and is willing to take the time to listen to you. Dr. Bernstein really cares about the whole patient, and not just getting you in and out of the office. He has even emailed me to make sure things were going well. I've never had another doctor who actually has such an honest and caring interest in his patients. I would recommend him to anyone who needs a physician.

Dr. Bernstein's Care Philosophy

To help people achieve health for life. I'm here to help make your life better.  But you are going to have to help! I can provide insight and guidance, but it is up to you to follow that advice.

Dr. Bernstein says...

Nothing beats experience when it comes to diseases treated in Family Practice.  The more you see, the more you know.  And being in practice over 30 years has allowed me to see plenty.

Treating chronic pain and helping those in need out of their suffering is immensely rewarding.  However, there are rules THAT MUST BE FOLLOWED if the patient is to remain on opioid pain medications.  It is not a right or entitlement to get opioid pain medication, and ability to follow strict directions are a must to continue to receive these.  These are wonderful but potential extremely dangerous medications.  Some people can't or won't follow these rules, and are denied opioids because of that.  It is something that every patient that gets these meds from me is aware of, and if non-compliant, they have no one to blame but themselves.

Dr. Bernstein says...

Not many providers will take care, fill and manage intrathecal pain pumps placed by another provider.  I will do this.
