Extremely rude and does not care about his patients. Has no decency. Worst experience.
in Schaumburg, IL |
I call for a regular visit. He charges me for level 1 visit. He was impatient to answer questions and spent less than 10 min for the whole visit. Very dispointed

Dr. Bernsen was caring and compassionate. He listened to my problems and helped solved my complaints. I finally found a doc that cares about me as a patient
