25/02/11 5 4 5 5 Doctor Bernstein is amazing. He has helped me through countless miscarriages, has always made time for me, and has gone out of his way to accomadate me. Sadly he wasn't able to deliver me when I did have my daughter, but he came to visit me after. And when I had serious complications 2 weeks post partum he came by twice during the weekend to check up on me. Without a doubt one of the most caring doctors out there. I will never trust my uterus to anyone but Doctor Bernstein, I even told him that with my next I will cross my legs until he is on call cause I do not trust anyone else to deliver me.  Respond

08/10/10 1 3 1 1 I had a really bad experience with Dr.Bernstein. He is one of the most ignorant doctors I ever met. Could care less about his patients, and his secretary is exactly the same. I wouldn't recommend him to anyone.  Respond

01/06/10 5 5 5 5 Dr. B is one of the greatest obgyns. He heads the general obgyn dept at Mount Sinai in Toronto & has one of the longest standing practices at that hospital. If you do not live in the city, he is well worth the drive. Dr. B was part of the team that had delivered me 25 yrs ago. This time it was my turn. I went in for my 12-week u/s & unfortunately, the news given to me was not of the greatest. Dr. B was there to arrange immediate genetic testing & counseling. When the tests showed that my pregnancy had no chance of survival, he was there to provide the best knowledge so that I could make my decision. When I decided to undergo a D&C, regrettably, Dr. B could not do it, but he immediately called in a favour so I could undergo it a few days later. After the procedure, he called to check up on me to see how I was doing physically & emotionally, something I did not expect from such a busy doctor. His compassion & understanding is one to be mirrored by other doctors. I highly recommend him.  Respond

27/03/09 5 5 5 5 Dr. Bernstein is the best obstetrician in the world! He has delivered two of my children and I am currently seeing him for my third pregnancy. He is kind, caring and patient, and takes the time to answer all of my questions. My sister has used him, and I have referred three of my friends to him as well. Every single one of us agrees he is professional, knowledgeable, but above all else, he truly cares for his patients. I would highly recommend Dr. Bernstein to anyone who is looking for the best ob-gyn in the city!  Respond

13/05/08 4 3 4 5 He is a legend, a mentor to hundreds of OB/GYN med students and was my OB for both my son and daughter. In an emergency situation, I would not want anyone else handling my delivery.  Respond

24/04/08 1 1 1 3 I can't believe the ratings this guy has. I saw him some years back for surgery on my cervix. He did a biopsy wihtout an anaesthetic and then got impatient with me for starting to cry from the pain. During my cryo-surgery, he complained about his tax bracket. At my check-up, he handed me a brochure and told me I probably had endometriosis. My mother had a similar experience - we didn't realize until we compared notes and realized it was the same doctor. Run away!  Respond

21/03/08 5 5 5 5 Dr bernstein is great! His staff is firm yet friendly (esp. nurse Marlene) and he always makes himself available for birth awherever possible. He took great care of me during my two pregnancies. Everyone I know who was udner his care loves him!  Respond

26/10/07 5 5 5 5 Are his knowledge and technique exceptional? Probably not, but actually quite good. Is it his charming bedside manner? No. (although he can be moderately charming on occasion). He spends limited time with each patient, but manages time well to provide quality care. He is thorough, pays attention, asks the right questions, checks and sometimes doublechecks, exercises good judgment, good doctor-patient etiquette and does that little bit extra that separates the very good doctors from the okay doctors. You can trust him to always do his best for you. When you have had a really bad doctor, you appreciate the good ones more. I consider myself lucky to have been his longtime patient. The very smart, very capable Betty Lam, the assistant, the gatekeeper who knows the answers to an awful lot of questions, who has been on the front line single-handedlly running the office for at least 20 years, deserves much credit for the success of this practice.  Respond

04/07/07 5 4 5 5 What an excellent doctor! My husband and I highly recommend him. He put us at ease throughout my pregnancy. I had to go in for a last minute c-section and he was not on call but made it a point to be there to observe and make sure everything went smoothly.  Respond

13/05/07 4 5 5 I have been a patient of Dr. Bernstein since 1977. He has always been a pleasure to see. I had a high risk pregnacy with my 2nd child and he was there for me every step of the way. I still see him every year for check ups and I always look forward to seeing him and showing him the photos of my kids. Without him, I would not have had a successful pregancy 28 years ago. I only hope that he contines in his practice.  Respond

01/05/07 4 5 5 I had Dr.Bernstein for both my children. I was referred to him from a family member and from the first time I meet him I knew I wanted to travel the distance to see him. He works out of Toronto (Mount Sinai) and I lived in Vaughan, Ontario (which is about a 1/2 hr drive away) It was a great experience with my son who was born in 2004 and I was also very excited to see him again when I had my daughter in 2006. I referred a good friend of mine to him and she has also had the same EXCELLENT experience with both her pregnancy's. Even though Dr. Bernstein wasn't there for neither of my deliveries he made sure he came to see me in the hospital either the same day I had my children or the day after. No question was a stupid question and he always put you at ease if you were worried about something. His secretary Betty and Marlene are wonderful and also make the visit's fun. I hope he is able to train future OB/GYN to be like him for the future. HIGHLY RECOMMENDABLE  Respond

10/04/07 5 5 5 Dr. P. Bernstein is the best OB/GYN ever. I have been going to him for over 25 years. Initially he helped with my infertility problem and then over the subsequent 10 years delivered my three healthy children. His manner is not only professional but he is aware of all aspects of the female reproductive system. He is loved by all of his patients.  Respond

29/03/07 4 5 5 Dr. Bernstein delivered my only child in 1982 and I still remember his kind and caring way. I looked forward to going for my check ups just to talk to him. Missed him later on when I had a hysterectomy and didn't need to see him any more. He and Dr. Joan Murphy are two of a kind.  Respond

16/03/07 4 5 5 I was referred to Dr. Bernstein in my early 20s and have been his patient for over 15 years. He's a terrific professional and person. Delivered my only child and helped make the pregancy and delivery incredibly positive experiences. One in a million doctor. I hope he's training some younger colleagues in preparation for his retirement (whenever he decides to retire).  Respond
