I've been seeing Dr Bernard since 1986 when I moved to Shoreham, NY. I can't even begin to explain how much he knows about every field of medicine and how he gives you options and explains things so you can make the right decision. Even when you tell him what one of your other doctors recommend. I know one thing and that Dr Bernard could retire right now but he doesn't want to leave his patients. I told him you could be living the good life up in the mountains somewhere relaxing everyday !

Dr. Bernard is a dream of a doctor. He is very knowledgeable and takes time with his patients to explain exactly what he is planning to do to help them. I just love him and it took me a long time to find him. Everyone in his office is most agreeable and pleasant.

As a former OR nurse, I know a great doc when I meet one and he certainly is. Smart, very thorough, expertise in internal med., will explain everything to you.
in Shoreham, NY |
Informative, caring, willing to spend as much time as you need to answer all your questions-these are all qualities that Dr. Bernard has in abundance. I couldn't ask for a better primary physician.
Coram, NY |
Dr. Bernard, himself is awesome!!!! However they always over book. last 2 times i was there I was there over two hours each time. The office staff is ridiculous! they constantly put you on hold, then tell you someone will get back to you and no one ever does. My pharmacy and myself called about 4 days before i was going to run out of medication, sent faxes to have my prescription refilled, medication that I've been taking. Now I am out... its medication that you cant just stop, ignored!! Im done
Smithtown, NY |
Unethical billing. Tries to sell you on unnecessary procedures, then codes the regular ones incorrectly so you get charged for what should be a free annual checkup.

Recently moved here, went to several locale doctors, and the one most knowledgeable, complete, and the best bed side manner was Dr. Bernard. My husband and I are very pleased.
