I was in dire need of a breast reduction. I'm 5'1, with sz "G" breasts. I am now a sz "B". I'm only a little over a wk post surgery & I feel wonderful. I told Dr. Bernacki I wanted pretty breasts. Not very pretty at the moment, but I can say, they're exactly the sz I wanted & will eventually be pretty. Dr. Bernacki, in my opinion, is extremely good at what he does & he cares alot for his patients. Thank you Dr. Bernacki & your wonderful team. Changed my life for sure.

I have been waiting a long time for this surgery and I know I have read many reviews on Dr Bernacki I tried to keep an open mind because I know everyone doesn't have the same experience. I ended up waiting almost an hour to see him and at that point Dr Bernacki came in apologized for the wait and said what size do you want to be sent me next door to be measured and pictures by his assistant never examined me and sent me on my way. I want to be recognized as a person not just a number

Dr. Bernacki is an excellent reconstruction and plastic surgeon who is a very kind and understanding doctor. I had already had a few cosmetic procedures done by Dr. Bernacki that were very positive experiences. So when I was diagnosed with breast cancer, I scheduled a consult to discuss my options. He helped me through this difficult time and we together decided on a reconstruction plan. I continue to recommend Dr. Bernacki to my friends and relatives. God Bless Dr. Bernacki!
