It started as trauma in the beginning I have never received this type of treatment from any doctor dealing with my foot since I’ve met her. Bring my wife and kids to her, I trust her judgment, I will not trade her for anything. Always well taken care of, well-informed and very personable. Will follow her wherever she goes.

Elizabeth G. – Aug 29, 2021
Dr. Bernstein was incredibly thorough. Ive had my ingrown toenail surgery 3 times on each toe. The 4th time with Dr. bernstein, she made sure for it wont happen again. She applied the medicine (for ingrown nail location) so many more times then other doctor’s ive seen before. After the Procedure I didnt have any pain whatsoever (even days after!). I was walking around without any thought that i just got the surgery done. But for other doctors that worked on my toes, I wasnt able to walk around for weeks! Dr. Bernstein really was thorough and gave me very detailed instructions on what i should do after the surgery and yet its been 2 years since the surgery and Im totally perfect. Dr. Bernstein is very nice (even through my complaining of the previous surgeries) im more than happy with her work. HIGHLY RECOMMEND

Simply the best possible combination of skill and personality. She stabilized a problem that has been plaguing me for years and that other doctors had not fixed. Combined with the ability to communicate clearly and with empathy; Dr. Bernstein is truly remarkable! Highest possible recommendation!

Dr. Bernstein is a great doctor! She identified the problem immediately and able to attend to the problem with great care. In addition, she took the time to explain how it came about and how to prevent any additional discomfort. I walked into her office in pain and walked out without any pain!

I went to Dr. Bernstein for pain in my left foot. I have tibial tendonitis. X rays were done and she fitted me for custom orthotic. I went back to her and had a MRI of the foot. The results were I have a 4 cm. tear in the tibial. I have to cut back on my running. She is a great doctor and I really like the orthotic. I highly recommend her.

Pedro M. – Nov 04, 2020
I have had very bad, somewhat deformed feet since I was a child and have had surgery in all of my toes twice. I've coped. I went to Dr. Bernstein with foot pain and a very big limp which I had had for over a year. In one visit Dr. Bernstein was able to remove a very thick callus which immediately greatly reduced my pain. This fall my foot was injured by a falling tree limb and Dr. Bernstein immediately got me in, did x-rays and fitted me with a boot. I have recovered well from that. I now go to her regularly to maintain a better condition of my feet and am able to resume all of my regular activities without pain. I LOVE this doctor and would recommend her to anyone!

Greg – Nov 03, 2020
Dr. Bernstein is personable and very professional. She was able to relieve pain in my foot by first trying the least aggressive treatment (a personally-designed orthotic). When that didn't give complete relief she administered a steroid injection to the area which has since relieved my pain. Dr. Bernstein uses diagnostic tools and technology to pinpoint the problem and goes over and explains results thoroughly. I have been very pleased with her treatment. Her staff is friendly and helpful, as well. I have already recommended her to family and friends.

My toe had been bothering me for at least 8 months. At my doctor's recommendation, I finally sought out a podiatrist. Dr. Bernstein was terrific! The procedure was easy and I instantly felt better. Dr. Bernstein explained everything and addressed all my concerns. She couldn't have been more caring, and conscientious. HIGHLY recommend!!!

Dr. Bernstein is a very kind, caring, and attentive doctor. She makes sure you are able to leave her office with any questions and/or concerns you may have, addressed. She does an excellent job at explaining things and at no point did I feel like I wasn't being listened to, or talked to in a rude manner. Overall, it was a very pleasant visit. Looking forward to the next one.

Jose G. – Oct 08, 2020
Dr. Bernstein is a remarkable doctor.She is smart, perceptive , and sophisticated. While her speciality is the the part of the body called the foot, she totally understands that "the foot bone is connected to the leg bone to the hip bone" - and in the end they all are connected to the brain. She deals with the specific presenting issue - which in my case was a complicated bunionectomy- but she does so within the context of the patient as a whole person. This does not make being a patient of hers simply more pleasant -which it is - but it guarantees the highest quality of treatment. Meet her and be treated by her; she is a true pro!

EB – Jul 15, 2020
Today was my third visit to Dr. Bernstein for my plantar fasciitis issue. It had gotten worse over the past few months and I knew the next course of treatment would be a cortisone injection. I knew this was the right thing to do; but, I was very apprehensive. I had hear this was a very painful procedure and barely slept last night because of it. I expressed my concerns to Dr. Bernstein and she swiftly alleviated my concerns. She used an ultrasound machine to make sure the needle was going in the correct location from the side of my foot (not the bottom) and numbing spray was used while she slowly injected the medication. It was over before I knew it; I’ve had venipunctures hurt worse. Dr. Bernstein did an incredible job and I highly recommended her!
