Dr. Bernstein is a brilliant scientist and a meticulous physician. He is heavily involved in research and is not a physician who holds patients hands but he is clearly committed to their care. I am a former biomedical scientist with advanced degrees and can communicate with Dr, Bernstein at a level that demands little of his time. If your problem is potentially dangerous you may be willing to see someone on top of their game who is not a good hand holder.

K.. Breier - Dr. Bernstein has been my Dr. for 10 years @ NWestern knowledgeable, but has the worst Bedside Manner & that is what matters most to Patients. Lacks communication with his patients, shows no compassion, too opinionated needs to come down off of the high horse & relate to his patients, shows no empathy, no caring, Compassion for his patients. Been trying to contact him for 5 days & no call back that shows Unprofessionalism on his part, time to get a New Dr.

I traveled from 3 hours away for an expert opinion from a vascular neurologist on 2 possible cryptogenic strokes, but found Dr. Bernstein to be rather blunt, a tad offensive, and strongly opinionated but based little on medical research. He did take his time, but really was not what I had expected, but I admit my expectations were high based on his resume. The consult was not very helpful.

Good diagnostician, people skills are tremendously lacking. He showed a lack of caring, compassion and empathy after the initial diagnosis. Telling someone to get used to excruciating pain is unacceptable. This comment does not help a patient deal with a serious medical problem.
