Dr Bernasek and his PA Brain Yates are excellent. They explain issues thoroughly and take whatever time the patient needs . I have never felt rushed with either one. They inspire confidence. Unfortunately, you will have to wait 3 months or more to get an appointment and once you get there you are faced with a wait time that exceeds 2 hrs, regularly, UGH!!!! and the administrative assistant (Maria) does not return phone calls, so surgery scheduling can be stressful.

Dr. Bernasek replaced my knee March 2014. The entire experience was great and pain was kept to a minimum. Infection protocol was beyond compare. I love my new knee and owe it all to Dr. B
