What People Say About Dr. Lawrence Bernstein, MD
Reply
All appointments have been timely, unhurried, and educational. His recommended adjustment to prescriptions issued by a previous physician completely vanquished my dizzy spells as well as my seizures. For this I am most grateful. But I am even more grateful for Dr. Bernstein's generosity—in time and in soft-spoken kindness—granted in his office and in follow up conversations to my home that he may not remember but that I will not forget.

He actually told me once, "I am not God I cannot predict the future. The truth is he played God with my life and made choices for me without consulting me. The devil in a white jacket. I woulnd't recomend him to my worst enemy, the fact that he his on TV advertising for the hosptial is just scary. Perhaps he should donate his money to MS.
