I would not recommend this Dr. to anyone. She doesn’t talk with you, she uses her secretary to relay messages. She didn’t directly reply to me. I felt the short time I was with her that she didn’t even do a through new patient interview and if you ask to speak to her you don’t get a call back. Being in the medical field as a RN for 27 yrs. I have never had an MD to not respond to phone and email. I don’t know if she is over worked or has forgotten how important rapport with each individual patient is. It’s a good thing she doesn’t do hospital rounds. I don’t think she would look at the individual patient or show compassion.

Dr Bernard is a caring medical professional. She is a champion of the new methodology to healthcare. Her patient load is limited to 600 patients who pay a most modest monthly payment She is available 24/7 and will see her patients as many times a month as they require. She provides medications at her cost to her patients, as well as very cost effective tests and treatments. She doesn’t accept insurance which is a plus!

She’s great. I was referred to her by a friend who is a nurse and also a patient of hers and I’m very lucky to have her as my Physician. She takes time to listen to every concern you may have and so much more..

I can’t say enough good things about Dr Bernard. It showed from my first visit that she truly cares about her patients, is very knowledgable about details of your medical history. She shows compassion unlike any other Doctor I’ve ever visited. I’ve never had to wait to see her, she’s ready to greet you at your appointment before you even have a chance to sit down and open up a magazine, yet she takes her time to address all of your concerns and needs during your visit, don’t know how she does it

Dr. Bernard I will say is one of the most caring and atttive doctor that you will ever encounter regarding your health choices. She makes you feel at ease be it through a face-to-face interaction or phone conversation. She makes you feel like part of the team when it comes to your health be it mentally or physically. Her assistant Lyly is Lawson awesome......very kind and courteous no matter how many times you have to call her lol.

Dr. Bernard is by far the best doctor my family and I have ever have. She is kind and patient and listens to all of our concerns. I love her practice and the fact that you are not just another number waiting hours in the waiting room. She is amazing!

I am so blessed to have become a patient of Dr Bernard about a year ago. It's easy to get in and out no matter how small the matter. Her receptionist Lili adds to a joyful room during very short waits. Dr. Bernard has surrounded her practice and network with real feeling human professionals. I don't miss the bureaucracy of a large health system. With Dr. Bernard I feel more safe than I ever have. Keep it up Dr. Bernard, I amazed with what you've accomplished.

My husband and I trust Dr. Bernard with our lives. She is a gem in every way. You will not be disappointed. She is the sum total of every attribute you would want in your family doctor and we feel very fortunate to have found her ten years ago. Her patients’ needs are her priority. She cares deeply about her profession and searched for years to find the best platform in which to help people, including those with no insurance! No one is turned away, including non-English speakers.

On my last visit she entered the seeming in a rush. During the session it was determined that I needed to see an pain management specialist immediately. When I asked for a referral, she just looked at me and then turned and walked away. Later, she accused me of not sharing my full medical records and dropped me. This accusation is totally untrue. I later was informed by two other former patients that if you indicate you are going to get a second opinion, you are dropped.

Finally there is a Doctor who really listens to her patients. My first appointment with Dr. Bernard was amazing. Immediately upon arrival I was greeted by her personally. She gave me as much time as I needed and was very willing to work with me on my own personal decisions as to health care. I just cannot say enough good things about her and I urge anyone looking for very personal and reliable health care to contact her.
