It was my first visit at this office. I was impressed with the courtesy given to me by staff as well as Dr. Berstein. I did however, at first, resent waiting so long in the office to be seen. But considering how caring Dr. B was with me, I assumed the lateness was attributed to her caring for other patients as well as she did with me. It is very rare these days that a doctor spend more than 2 minutes with a patient, I felt Dr. Bernstein gave me the time I needed. Overall a very positive first experience.

Excellent care given by all. Dr. Bernstein listens and cares and wants to improve my pain level.

I have visited this office for a few years now and I have always had a great experience. Everyone treats me with kindness and compassion as well as being very professional. This includes all of the staff from receptionist to the Doctors. Thank you for the exceptional service.

i called spoke with office personal about reason for visit, and that my Nerosurgeon refered me, they said she would be able to handle my medication management. they appear to be very courteous and professional. upon arrival I filled out a very nice iPad questionnaire about pain level that I thought was very thorough and complete. A doctor on training, entrenched the room reviewed my history asked several questions and again let me to believe that the doctor would be able to manage/handle my concerns. I waited approximately 20 more minutes before the doctor the student and another person enter the room to tell me they would not handle my pain management. she did offer other services but would not handle the pain management prescription which was the sole reason for my visit explained severest times.

dr Berenstein is excellent

I felt like very little help was given to me and my pain. An unrealistic solution was given to attend a support group that involved driving a hour 2 round trip 2 days per week and staying 5 hours per day. No real other options were provided.

very professional and compassionate.

just feel that more time should be taken. The Dr may have been in my room for possibly 3 minutes. I am going to this Dr for my pain, I come to the room, they take my blood presssure and temp. Few questions are ask,they leave the room and then the Dr comes in. I know that I'm there to get my meds refilled but when I ask about a problem pertaining to an issue I'm having I'm told to ask my primary Doctor. I travel a good two hrs to see the Dr-I feel I should get a little more time with her just sitting there listening to my issues and maybe trying to figure out my concern.

Dr. Bernstein's concern and helpfulness are always outstanding. I am very grateful for having her as as my pain physician! I don't know what I'd do without her because of her knowledge, empathy and understanding!
