I have severe back pain. I've struggled for 2 yrs with no resolve. Dr Bernardi was fantastic upon 1st visit. He ordered an MRI because he wasn't pleased with the 4 I had ALREADY paid for in the last 2 yrs. his PA called me and ordered ANOTHER SI Injection. The injection did nothing. I called to follow up and was told by the PA "there is nothing wrong with your back." "Get another injection." "Sorry, not sure what to tell you." I paid for a dr, not a PA. My pain isn't coming from no where!

Dr. Bernardi did my cervical surgery 10 years ago. I have had 5 cervical surgeries, but none have come close to excellent results and care I got from Dr. Bernardi. I can sincerely say I am devastated that he no longer takes my insurance. I continue to check over the years when I have had to have repeated surgeries. Best experience I've had for a difficult time. Highly, highly recommended.

I am greatly impressed with Dr Bernardo and his staff. I have had my back surgery and am doing great. I highly recommend Dr Bernardi. I am the second one in my family that Dr B has performed surgery on.

We found Dr. Bernardi to be conservative regarding surgery, competent, professional, personable, and very helpful during post-op and healing. His staff was my lifeline from first call through post-op. Had two lumbar surgeries 5 months apart, 2009-10. Excellent results. Outpatient-same day. Barnes West Hospital excellent.

A well-known/respected surgical group in STL recommended a fusion for the pain that occurred in my leg & hip when standing or walking. Dr. Bernardi felt it could be eliminated with a much less drastic outpatient surgery. Within days of my appointment, I received his report explaining the findings we had discussed during the visit (very helpful). I had surgery 3 weeks ago. It went very well and I am pain free. I am so thankful that I learned about Dr. Bernardi & am grateful for his skills.

Will not recommend. Pain never went away after 5 yrs after L5/S1 fusion and still searching for a physician who can do minimally invasive repair. Still have pain every day and dumbness in my leg. He did not have good patient manners, either.
in Greenville, IL |
Excellent surgeon. Two 1/2 years ago I was walking with a walker & having great pain in lower back. I felt relief from the pain immediately after surgery & even stopped to eat at a restaurant on the way home that same day.
in Chesterfield, MO |
Dr. Bernardi is personable, has a dry sense of humor and skillfully puts patients at ease. In addition to his superior clinical expertise, he is humanistic and makes the patient and the patient's family feel comfortable.
