Waiting time to see doctor's assistant, then the doctor was extremely long.

August 16, 2016

all good experiences

August 09, 2016

The wait time in the waiting room and in the office was awful. Perhaps too many patients are booked at one time, however, time was taken for my needs. I was not rushed.

August 09, 2016

My surgeon decided to have my pain management doctor, Dr. Bernstein, manage my pain for an upcoming surgery. Dr. Bernstein and her nurses were extremely thorough in their approach to accomplish this. They took the time to understand my needs and concerns. I'm very comfortable with their treatment plan. The entire office is always caring and polite.

August 08, 2016

The Dr. had no knowledge of my case, referred to my referring Dr. by the wrong first name, did not prescribe the medication she herself recommended and then sent me back to my referring Dr. for an epidural which my referring physician does NOT do and is why my referring Dr. sent me to her. A total waste of my time and I really should not be charged for this appointment at all. Terrible.

doctor was pleasant and professional during our time together

July 12, 2016
