He is always caring and respectful. I trust his judgement. He did a knee replacement a year ago and I plan to have the other knee replaced soon. After surgery he gave me his cell phone number and asked me to please call him if I had questions or problems.

Underwent knee replacement surgery with Dr Bernard, and have been thoroughly impressed by the expertise, efficiency and personal attention provided not only by him, but by the whole team, who appear to function like a well oiled machine. Highly recommended Dr Bernard, as he was recommended to me by one of my physician colleagues

Three years ago Dr Bernard replaced my left knee and a month later my right hip. He gave the most excellent care. I have been free from pain for the first time in over 10 years. I now have my right knee giving me pain and limiting my movement. I am so grateful he is here. I know I will need it replaced and it gives me peace of mind to know he is here and I am able to have his expert care.

Was not pleased with visit. X-rays showed arthritis and bone separating. He pulled and poked on right knee, I left in more pain than I came in with. Knee swelling became more. Will not recommend anyone to his practice.

Dr. Bernard is a very polite caring physician. He explained all my options in a way I could understand. He explained his specialty and referred me to Dr. Miller. The staff is pleasant and helpful. I highly recommend Dr. Bernard.

Dr Bernard is the best knee surgeon that has ever worked on my knee. I walked in extreme pain for 28 years until I allowed Dr Bernard to replace my knee. He is a man of excellence and truly cares about those who entrust their mobility to him. If you want to feel better, do better, live better ...then contact Dr Bernard.
