This review is a long time coming. Dr. Richard Bernstein (lovingly called Dr. B by both his patients and his staff) is an exceptional doctor. He is very intuitive, patient and spends a significant amount of time working with those in his care. I came in with a tremendous amount of pain and very limited movement in my right shoulder approximately 3 years ago. He made adjustments for immediate pain relief and implemented a plan to bring back full range of motion and a pain free life.

After seeing a chiropractor and having a bad experience, Dr. Bernstein has helped me gain wellness and reduce my back and hip pain. After working with him for several months he was able to adjust/calm my back in a way other chiropractors haven't since first having problems over 10 years ago. Through his support and recommended network I've also learned new things about my health and am on my way to building a new life. He has great care for his patients and cares about the whole person.

I went to see Dr. Bernstein after a nagging knee injury refused to completely heal. I was experiencing clicking and popping and irregular piercing pain. I feared that it was only a matter of time before I was going to have to have surgery. But after a few months under his expert care, and the miraculous healing power of the cold laser, I am back riding my bicycle, swimming, hiking, climbing stairs and playing golf pain free. I am SO grateful!
