Patient Comments (1)
in Eagleville, PA |
I had an appointment with a fellow, who will not be mentioned in this review, because of a misunderstanding. Dr. Berns had a smug attitude about my rare condition--I have had this condition for 26 years and 5 months. They do not teach this condition in medical school. This was offensive. I received a passive aggressive message from him via MyChart. I would not recommend him.
