Dr. Bernstein did Moh's surgery for a basal cell on my forehead. He was very kind, and the nurses on his staff were so amazing. They explained everything at every stage, and I felt very well cared for. Some waiting is necessary due to the nature of the procedure, but everyone kept me updated throughout the process.

Dr. Bernstein performed massive MOHS surgery, greatly exceeding the referring doctor's instructions His over-aggressive action resulted in the need for very large and difficult plastic surgery. He never mentioned the possible necessity of such surgery and completely failed to inform me with regard to possible alternative action. In addition, after having removed a major portion of my nose, Dr. Bernstein simply referred me to the plastic surgeon and never once ever inquired about my well-being.
