Dr Bernstein is a good doc. He listened to me, didn't dismiss my concerns, he gave me his time, told me what needed to be done, made the referral, the referral appointment was made. I didn't have to do anything. I like that he took charge and made things happen. He was easy to talk to and had a good bedside manner.
