Patient Comments (2)
Brockton, MA |
I would never recommend this physician to anyone. I had waited almost an hour in the waiting room for my scheduled appointment. After finally being called in Dr. Bernal did not greet me he spoke directly to his computer screen. I felt insulted, Dr. Bernal did not look at me once during the whole visit and the only question he asked me was if I smoked, which I had to answer for him several times. As a healthcare professional myself I was shocked to be treated as if I was an annoyance.
Somerset, MA |
The appointment was almost an hour late. There was no sheet to write down my symptoms and he didn't want me to tell him any of them. He didn't tell me anything about what he thought was wrong or what the medication was he prescribed. I should have left the second I saw it was an office inside of a bank.
