I started out with Dr Bernik at St Vincent’s Hospital and followed her to Lennox Hill Hospital. She performed all 3 of my lumpectomies, preserved as much breast tissue as she could and you can barely see the scars (seriously). She is kind, compassionate, understanding and her patient care and bedside manner is beyond excellent. Thank you Dr Bernik.

I definitely recommend Dr. Bernik as your breast surgeon. She is very knowledgeable, skilled, progressive and compassionate. She performed a lumpectomy with mammoplasty on both breasts, and used a biodegradable implant called BioZorb. The surgery was a breeze. Despite the amount of tissue removed, my breasts look so similar to pre-surgery! I'm cancer-free now and I'm thankful she made my DCIS treatment go so smooth. Another plus is she teams up with an amazing plastic surgeon (Dr Dec). A team!

I was a patient of Dr. Bernik when she was at St. Vincents Comprehensive Cancer center. She helped save my life! Not only with the wonderful incredible surgery preformed, but with the care and concerned showed during and after the whole process of my procedures. She is a great asset to who ever she treats and what ever facility she work with.
