Patient Comments (2)

I was so impressed by Dr. Bernard that I referred my son and daughtet-in-law to him. Dr. Bernard made a referral, which saved my life.

I don't know what I'm going to do when Dr. Bernard retires. I've been seeing him for over 20 years. He always listens, never rushes, and always has a plan for treatment. I don't know if he takes new patients, but I would highly recommend him.
