25/02/14 3 5 5 5 He is wonderful, very kind and caring and takes the time to LISTEN......hard to find with most Dr.'s today. Most of his staff is wonderful except for the one miserable one that you first talk to at the front desk.....she needs an attitude adjustment and personality..

28/06/11 2 3 5 5 Dr Bernardo is wonderful.I always have a list of questions with me so I dont forget, and he always answers all of them without me ever feeling like I am being rushed. He is very conservative, which I like, but very thorough in his exams. I have never had a problem with anything he has asked me to do concerning my health. I do NOT LIKE HOWEVER< TRYING TO GET THROUGH BY PHONE< AND AS OTHERS HAS ALSO SAID ON THIS SITE< I RARELY GET A PERSON< ITS ALWAYS AN ANSWERING MACHINE AND YOU NEVER KNOW IF THEY GET THE MESSAGE OR NOT< BECAUSE SOMETIMES THEY CALL BACK THE NEXT DAY> So far, that is the only drawback. Having a friendly staff is always helpful, so sometimes they have to remember that as well. Our whole family adores Dr Bernardo

03/06/08 3 5 5 5 I have been with Dr. Bernardo for about 4 years and he always takes a moment to understand the true nature of your visit. Dr. Bernardo does not just throw Rx's down your throat. He is a wonderful physician and I'm glad to have him as my doctor.

18/02/08 3 4 5 5 Dr. Bernardo is the first doctor I have found where I do not feel "rushed" through an appointment. He takes the time to listen to your problem and then thoroughly explains his diagnosis instead of throwing a prescription in your hand. I think he is great!

26/08/07 5 5 5 5 He is a wonderful doctor, far above the rest. Dr.Bernardo has helped my entire family with all our medical problems. My daughter had a brain tumor which he discovered after taking her to countless "specialists." He also discovered a condition in my legs I didnt even have a clue about. He has also guided me in the right direction with everything. He is extremely compassionate, with a great bedside manner. He gives you all the time in the world when you need to talk and really,really listens to what you are saying. My visits are ALWAYS on time. His knowledge is way above any other general internalist I have ever been to. I met him when I was hospitalized with a blood clot and I was so upset and traumatized by the ordeal and he calmed me down. He has a gentle touch and compassion above and beyond. He is truely a wonderful doctor. I've recommended him to many, many people and they are as well satisfied. Thank you.  Respond
