Just had my first visit with him yesterday. He was friendly, caring and knowledgable. I only had no wait about 5 minutes. I received cortisone injections for osteoarthritis. I would definitely recommend Dr. Bernard.

Had knee looked at as I couldn’t hardly walk or get around. He gave me a shot and it feels good now. He did 2 hip surgeries on my wife- very thoughtful and caring. Told us he would treat her as he would his mother, and he did! Excellent doctor!!!

I have been treated by Dr Bernard for several years. He is a brilliant, caring surgeon who despite being so gifted and successful possesses a humility that is incredible. Dr Bernard displays a passion for life and health and infuses it into his patients. I thank God for Dr Bernard.

Dr Bernard was totally unprofessional on my first visit. He was rude and cruel. He took his anger at somebody else out on me as he stated that he would never work on an overweight person.

Dr. Bernard has done a total knee and a total hip on me. Both surgeries have given me a better quality of life. My latest visit was for my non-surgical knee. I was given a cortisone shot. The next morning I was walking a whole lot better

Dr. Matthew Bernard is a highly skilled orthopedic surgeon that specializes in hips and knees. What sets him apart from most other orthopedic surgeons is his genuine compassionate care for his patients. He always greets you with a heat warm smile, he listens and addresses your concerns and he explain medical procedures in a manner that anyone can understand. Dr. Bernard has performed Five joint replacements between my husband (Total Knee Replacement) and for myself (Both Total Hips Replacements & Both Total Knee Replacements). We are extremely satisfied with the outcome of each surgery. One more thing that sets Dr. Bernard apart from most other orthopedic surgeons, Dr. Bernard’s “Fast Track” which gives you the choice of your post-surgery recovery. Same day surgery to Normal 2- or 3-night hospital stay Having the option to choose Dr. Bernard’s (Fast Track) was very important to me, because my husband has health problems that have developed quickly. His support staff are wonderful!

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.
