I’ve been a patient for about 5 years and he is a really good physician. He never seems to be in a hurry & always takes time to listen to what my health issues are. He’s very thorough and is pro active with my health and lifestyle. He’s a believer in diet & exercise to prevent problems later on. I would highly recommend him as a primary physician.

I'm a long time patient of Dr B. He and his staff are great. Any time I have been ill they have squeezed me in the same day. He is never in a rush, thoroughly explaining himself and answering any questions. He is very proactive in providing a comprehensive plan of remedy on the first visit. Contrary to some other reviews he is never condescending or judgemental. We have discussed a handful of bad decisions I've made but his approach is always factual not judging.

Unprofessional, arrogant, condescending, terrible listener. Expect long waits & discourteous office staff. Not only does this doctor think he is a god, he doesn't listen to or otherwise act like he cares about his patients. I went in after experiencing pain and difficulty breathing and arm pain. When I went in to see him on the second day of pain, he actually laughed at me & told me it was a pulled muscle. Interesting, since I had to be hospitalized for blood clots the next day. Buyer beware.

Dr. Bernard sees nothing wrong with the fact that staff members post Bible verses in locations that patients can see easily. What about patients who are not Christians--those who practice another religion or those who practice no religion whatsoever? When staff members started attaching little baskets to their workstations that contained pamphlets for their churches, I knew that I had to find another primary care physician. I don't want religion forced upon me when I'm seeking medical care.

Terrible!! My first appointment and my last!! I went for an appt. on 10/18, I had 4pm appt., after he saw me, he asked me to come back the next morning 10/19 for lab work. I went in and also asked the nurse if I could get a flu shot. No problem, I got a bill for a second co-pay. a $35 visit turned into an $80 visit. I called the office and they would not budge on waiving the additonal fees. Beware!!! They never mentioned the second copay I would have to pay for me to come back at the request o
