I really like the time Dr. Bernardo takes with me and my wife, explaining everything very carefully, pulling up information on the computer and sharing it with me so that I can see what he is talking about.

I've had a wonderful experience with Dr. Bernardo. I started seeing him about a year ago in very poor health and he has totally turned my life around. Couldn't be more thankful for him. I highly recommend him; he is very caring, attentive and personable and made everything easy to understand.
