We were extremely pleased with Dr. Bernard, his staff, the clinic and our outcome for husbands procedure. This morning he is in no pain, the injections hit the spot and for that we are thankful. We give him and all involved a #10. Thank you and God Bless.

Dr. Bernard is the best in Columbus/Phenix City area. 2 back surgeries/including a fusion. and a cervicial fusion. I would not trust any other doctor to work on my spine. Not only is he highly skilled, he also is kind and compassionate. He truly cares about his patients. Most of my work history was in the medical field. So over my 30 plus years I.ve gotten to know most of the doctors in the area. Dr. Bernard is second to none.
