I visited Dr. Bernstein several times regarding my sinus surgery and after spending time and money going back and forth ; we schedule a date for surgery . he called me one day and dismissed me from his service without any reason ! he goes you should go find another Dr! I have never experienced anything like that before . I'm so disappointed and still suffering from my sinus infection . as you know it takes time to find another dr. and make an appointment .
