I saw Dr. Bernal for the first time today and am so glad I decided to make the switch to him as my cardiologist. He has the best bedside manner and is open to listen to my concerns. He was very knowledgeable about medication and I'm very blessed to have been able to get an appointment with him! HIGHLY recommend him to anyone needing cardiovascular care!!!

Would highly recommend Dr. Bernal. Last year (2018) I had hip replacement surgery and while in hospital had a massive heart attack. Dr. Bernal was called in and immediately removed a blood clot that stopped the blood flow to the back wall of my heart . He then placed a stent in to keep artery open. Thank you Dr. Bernal!!!

Most caring excellent cardiologist I have ever met. I was an ICU nurse and have met many. None compare!!!! He always has time to listen and does anything he can for the family as well as the patient. My mom was so fortunate to have him as well as his sweet nurse practitioner Gretchen. My mom passed this week, but his kindness will never be forgotten.

Dr. Bernal has been my cardiologist for about 7 years. He implanted my pacemaker, which I feel saved my life at that time. I had been going to another cardiologist with another group and I feel he was not giving me the necessary care I needed. I would highly recommend Dr. Bernal to anyone with heart problems.

I would gladly recommend Dr.Bernal to anyone in need of a cardiologist. He is always kind, patient, understanding, and very personable. He truly listens to me and honestly values me as a person. He makes me feel like I am important and not simply a medical diagnosis. He combines wisdom and common sense with his amazing knowledge about the heart and its physiology.
