    Dr. Bernick was my GI MD for 3years. He was very professional in all appointments. What I respected most was his willingness to listen to my input regarding diet changes I had made that were helping me be asymptomatic w/ my Chrons. He also took care of his health with diet and exercise, which I respected and absolutely look for in a physician. If I had a flare-up, he was immediately available via email/phone for new Rx/refills, if warranted, while I scheduled an appointment. Excellent physician.

    Dr. Bernick is a highly skilled and efficient practitioner with an excellent bedside manner. As an anesthesia provider I have worked with him on high risk patients and can say patient safety is paramount in his practice. As a patient and family member of a patient, I specifically requested him to perform procedures on both myself and family member based on my assessment of his skill and safety. He additionally provided excellent follow-up care and education.

    As an Anesthesiologist providing services for endoscopy patients in Dr. Bernick's practice and as a patient previously in his care, I have found him to be exceptionally skillful, professional, and pleasant to work with. After 3 years of observing his patient care, I made a point to ensure he was the endoscopist for my initial screening colonoscopy because of the respect and confidence I have in him. Dr. Bernick is the finest Gastroenterologist I have worked with in my 15 years as a physician.
