Verified Patient Reviews
This was absolutely the worst medical experience I have ever had. I do not understand how there are not less stars please, please do not make an appointment here. I went to Dr Bernard as he was one of the few neurologists that took my insurance,and was hopeful that I would find help with my migraines. Instead I found a dingy office with rude front desk staff, and when explaining my migraines/tension headaches to the Dr he consistently interrupted me to ask bizarre questions (his attempt at bedside manner?) and the visit concluded with him announcing that I - tada! - have migraines and tension headaches. From past reviews, I was not surprised when he recommended testing, and agreed as I wanted peace of mind. When people say he is only interested in getting you in for tests, that is not a lie. When visiting again to get the results, there was no actual file - the assistant was writing down my general information on the back of a random sheet of paper. The Dr came in, announced that my tests were clear so I was good to go, ordered a blood test, and then promptly left the room - all without ever actually looking at me. I had to literally yell to get his attention in the hallway, and he wouldn't even enter the room again to speak to me as I pushed that while it was great my test results were clear, I still needed help with migraines. He completed disregarded me, brushed off my questions and walked away. I blinked and suddenly the nurse had a needle in my arm for the blood test he had ordered, and she tried to calm me down as I was in tears I was so shaken. I have NEVER been so offended and belittled by a medical "professional." I will share this review as many times as necessary to ensure that nobody visits this office.
It was a nice visit. I have to return to have some additional test done in the next week or so.
He is very patient Dr Who takes his time with his patients. Dr. Bernad is very knowledgeable and shares that with his patients.
Worst medical experience of my life. Terribly unprofessional - insulted my own profession, repeatedly tried touching me, and then discussed other clients...by name.
Dr. Bernad is very personable and knowledgeable. His front receptionist and medical students are welcoming and friendly.
Really appreciated the kindness of the office staff. However, as other reviewers noted, the wait times are extremely long. Both visits took more than 2 hours, most of which was spent in the waiting room or waiting with the medical students for the doctor. I would still go back and recommend, however--I felt listened to and overall cared for.
I have never seen a doctor who has spent so much time with me. He came out to get me as soon as I'd finished my paperwork, then talked to me for over an hour - about my medical history, lifestyle, concerns, and then, our plan for getting to the bottom of my ailments. He was so thorough, and really just outstanding. Unconventional, but reminiscent of a time past, when doctors knew you and invested time in you.
Dr. Bernad is as much teacher as he is physician as he welcomes medical students into his practice. Our time spent with him was extraordinary. He listens deeply and has a very calming presence. This was our first visit; I hope that his care and attention will remain excellent!
Waited 30 minutes upon arrival, spent 30 minutes talking to a medical student and then waited for an hour and a half before seeing the doctor. He didn’t speak to me he spoke to the medical student I had spoken with. Cut me off whenever I tried to speak. Ordered scans without giving any reasoning or suspicions as to what might be wrong.
Dr. Bernad and his staff were very kind and made me feel very comfortable.
Amazing doctor, which anyone will know by looking up his work online - but also amazing in person. Took such a thorough initial intake, provided insights I haven't gotten from any other world-class neurologist before - patient for life!
Dr. Bernad and his staff are very knowledgable and really value their patient's time. I was seen by a staff member within 10 minutes of arriving and Dr. Bernad shortly thereafter. Dr. Bernad listened very well to my concerns and developed an initial treatment plan that made me feel better instantly.
I gave Dr. Bernad 4 chances. All 4 times i have been seen over an hour past my appointment time. He speaks over you and doesn’t take all of your concerns into account. He prescribed me 9 migraine pills when i stated i have had chronic migraines and dizziness everyday for several years! I do not recommend.
The doctor was great, but his staff were incredibly unhelpful. They seemed to serve as gatekeepers to the doctor and were not responsive. Despite his assurance that he would be helpful, in the end I couldn't connect with him in any way to follow up on the few appointments I had. It was up to me to get medical records transferred, I never heard back regarding his review of those records, and once my insurance wouldn't approve a test I never heard from them again. Very disappointing.
Incompetent, dangerous, forgetful doctor who I seriously question whether should be practicing medicine. On top of that, usual wait was 90 minutes past appointment time and I have been repeatedly billed months past paying in full. Office staff is completely incompetent....missing records, etc.
Once I got to see the doctor after an hour and a half wait (tooooooo long!!), he was great. As a new patient, he chatted with me to get to know me and my medical concerns There will be a follow up appointment, and I expect things to go well.
Not trying to be harsh, but I felt as though I was not taken seriously at all. Nothing was done for my pain and I am worse off than when I first made my appointment. They also never returned any of my calls about when I could schedule a follow up for my test results.
Really a cut above. Genuinely cares about his patients. I'm almost in tears thinking about how many doctors I had to see before I found Dr. Bernad.
Horrible wait times
Dr Bernad was wonderful, as usual.
This doctor was so unprofessional. I waited two hours, and he didn't even address my primary complaint. He just sat there gossiping with me. I immediately left and booked someone out of network who go the job done within ten minutes.
Everything went good but Arrived at 2:30 and left 5:30. Not happy with this.
Awesome Staff and AMAZING Doctor.
Great physician concerned about the whole Patient
I am supportive of doctors teaching while with patients. With that said, I received far more useful information from a doctor who was not Dr Bernad, as he spent less than 4 minutes with me. Most of the time in the room with me was spent telling the student doctors about how he wasn't going to prescribe me a barbiturate because opiod abuse is rampant in America and then discussing political implications. I was there because the barbiturate my primary care doc prescribed didn't work (and had expired with a nearly full bottle). I was given a few sample drugs, a prescription for what I already have to refill, and awful printouts of what should be a migraine diary. I wasn't given the time to tell him that I've kept track on a phone app for about 3 years and have kept journals off and on for the 20 years since initial diagnosis. I tried to share that and so much more since I've obviously seen many neurologists over the years. The student doctors seemed kind and empathetic as I was whisked away with no additional help. I had high hopes of this being my new neurologist for years to come, but I don't think I'll go back.
He was very attentive and gave alot of details around different options for treatments. He took his time and I didn't feel rushed one bit.
I liked the Dr. He was extremely busy, though. I learned there patients there with the exact same appt. Time as me. However, he is the best in the area.
I was very impressed with Dr. Bernad, I felt he really wanted to help me figure out what was causing my problems and was going to work with me until we did so. The downside was a 90 minute wait in a very hot office, with no magazines except one People and one Sports Illustrated. I count on my Dr. visits to catch up on my celebrity news!!! The receptionist seemed to be having a difficult time entering my information in the system which added to my wait time.
I read in the reviews that some people had problems with there being med students there but they are efficient and there to learn. It's a great experience for them. I thought the med student who I spoke to was really nice and it wasn't intrusive or weird. I actually like that he interacts with them and helps them learn, because then the patient can also hear the discussion and learn his thought process in the diagnosis. The doctor is so friendly and nice. He is very efficient. I was seen really quickly. The diagnosis and discussion revolving my options were laid out for me.
The doctor didn't seem so awful but I felt very much that they only wanted to do treatments onsite. However, the employee to verify insurance coverage for sleep study was awful at following through, even after I called back multiple times. When I asked for a recommendation to an actual psychotherapist they wanted me to wait for the sleep study first which wasn't making progress. In the end, I wasted hundreds of dollars going there for the diagnostics they did onsite
Dr. Bernad is very nice and he is just a wonderful person and doctor. Personally, I tend to feel intimidated by some doctors and I sometimes feel that the minute I can into the office, they are ready to get rid of me. This office is very welcoming. The people who speak with you at the window are so sweet and honestly, Dr. Bernad feels like an old friend, one who you believe in and trust.
Its refreshing to have a doctor, much less a specialist spend time to get to know you as a human.
Dr. Bernad is extremely professional and very nice. I have been going to him for over a year for chronic migraines, He has put me on a regime that has made my migraines decrease in frequency tremendously, if not completely. He is always very helpful and answers all of my questions. He truly cares about his patients well being and health. Highly recommend him!
It was my very first appointment with Dr. Bernard and I am very pleased with his bedside manner. He seems to genuinely care about his patient. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
Willingness to try new courses of treatment; taking patient seriously; affable; bedside manner only a little strange because he kept talking to PA about me, in front of me!
Having now worked with doctors and veterans for at least 20 years almost daily, I am familiar with care providers and treatment plans. Other than Dr. Bernad, there is no other doctor that I would rate as excellent (5 stars). (Some doctors I would rate at 4 or even 4.5 but not 5). Dr. Bernad treats veterans with respect and is committed to providing them with the best possible care. He is not only an excellent doctor but a strong advocate for his patients.
Dr. Bernad is thorough, patient, and most importantly, listens. I started seeing him to address chronic issues with migraine headaches. They haven't gone away, but I have a management plan to deal with them, which is a vast improvement over where I was when I started. I also recommended close family to Dr. Bernad, and he bent over backwards to provide assistance in a difficult case.
He is an amazing MD. I have been seeing him for close to 11 years and his bedside manner and professionalism is next to none. He is proficient and very intelligent and up to all the necessary medical treatments and diagnosis that will help you. He even has medical students that he trains due to his wisdom and knowledge. Truly I couldnt image a better doctor than him. All my other doctors go to him for advise due to his well known professionalism and knowledge.
Dr. Bernard is friendly, professional, knowledgable, and busy. He does a good job explaining the various options available to you and putting your diagnosis in context. The office staff is helpful. They aren't using EMR, but will send your information promptly when requested.
I didn't really feel that Dr. Bernad listened to me. I spent 20 minutes or so talking with his intern and giving him a lot of information, only for Dr. Bernad to walk in in the middle of the intern giving him a 15 second synopsis. I came in for headaches, but he spent the entire time talking about the fact that I have a large head, and immediately ordered a sleep study even though I told him I sleep fine and that my snoring has been going on for my entire life. I recognize that my headache probably wasn't going to be easy to diagnose since he didn't have all that much to go on, but I would have appreciated it if I'd felt like he was actually listening to what I had to say.
Staff is rude and lacking in knowledge of general processes of the office. Doctor talks to the medical students like you're not in the room. He's makes it uncomfortable to communicate your concerns.
As mentioned in other reviews, Dr. Bernad is a very nice man but a very unhelpful doctor. He prescribed medications that did not help my migraines and gave me terrible nightmares. He frequently talked about me in third person to interns/residents while I was sitting right there and did not satisfactorily answer my questions. He requested a barrage of tests without clear explanations as to why and prescribed costly medications that a previous doctor had expressly told me never to take. I recently found a much better neurologist who validated all my frustrations with Dr. Bernad by simply being competent and clear herself. Stay away for Dr. Bernad if you want real and straightforward help.
Dr Bernard had his student with him she was very nice and very knowledgeable but talk to the scrib not me.
Office staff is very professional and Dr Bernad really listens to your concerns.
Unacceptable Service. I basically diagnosed my own condition, and did not need the hour and a half waiting ordeal I suffered in this office.
If you have a headache he says that "there are 300 causes of headaches", then proceeds to prescribe you 5 different medications for 5 different etiologies of headache. Spent minimal time with me. Not very personable.
It was horrible they rush the appointment you feel uncomfortable dealing with different interns
Seemed genuinely concerned with my issues but confused facts I told him several times. Luckily, resident sat in on exam and took notes. I left with little confidence in the decisions made.
Lots of medical students running around!!
The worst ever. They take forever to call you back then when they do call you back you wait in a room another 30 mins, never again, . There are plenty doctors in the area.
Booked an appointment to discuss the reasons for my headaches. Dr Bernard asked lots of questions to better understand my symptoms and cause of these headaches. Spent a great deal of time with me which I thoroughly appreciated. Suggested a battery of test which I will schedule and follow up! Will definitely return.
AWESOME! I know he will find out what is wrong with me. His Intern ask a lot of questions. They seem very concern, not rush. Thank you!
quede complacida , el doctor y sus colaboradores son personas que le dan seguridad y confiabilidad , Gracias
Waited about 45 minutes to be seen. Staff was very friendly as was the doctor. A bit disorganized though.
The interns and Dr Bernard were great!!! So patient and very thorough. Glad I found them!
I was very skeptical about scheduling an appointment here because of past reviews and only did for scheduling reasons. Apparently, Dr. Bernad must have listened to the feedback because I had absolutely no issues with the service here. Yes, I was initially seen by a resident, but that really wasn't an issue for me. In fact, I felt that having the resident there was additional benefit for me since Dr. Bernad took the chance to teach the resident about my condition. This provided additional clarification for me too.
He is excellent, thorough, compassionate, and knowledgeable.
This was the first doctor who took the time to talk to and get to know me.
Dr. Bernard has great interpersonalble skills and wonderful with elderly patients. He takes his time with his patients and Is culturally sensitive.
Excellent and caring team of highly skilled neurologists. they took great care of our concerns about my husband's memory loss.
Had a great experience for my first visit. Very professional and they all seemed to care about me as a person. Would recommend to others. Was able Tibet an appointment same day. Above and beyond expectations.
Excellent! Dr. Bernard is world class! I would recommend him to anyone with neurological issues.
Dr. B was AMAZING and so was his intern! LOVE THEM!
He is a wonderful Dr with a very friendly staff and med students that are being taught not only medicine but how to treat your patients Highly reccomnd
Dr. Bernad is a fun and knowledgeable doctor with an understanding of various cultures. He is also willing to listen to the patient.
Absolutely horrible experience! I spent the first hour with 2 interns that asked inappropriate questions and were not helpful at all. When the doctor came in he was totally unprofessional. I would not recommend. The office staff was supposed to follow up with my insurance for a test and never called me back or returned my calls. They then charged me a fee for the test that was never actually scheduled. Make sure to double check your invoice!
Meeting with Dr Bernad was reminiscent of an 'old school' experience from a time when doctors stressed a more personal relationship, something in today's world that might be labeled as a 'holistic approach' by getting to know the person. Dr. Bernad took more than sufficient time to get to know not only symptoms but also a bit about the patient. Very satisfied so far and I'm generally pretty tough on ratings, especially for the medical profession.
I don't live close, so sometimes I am early. I was today but did not wait at all. Dr. Bernard and his staff were professional and extremely helpful. Really explained what they were talking about, scheduled follow up. Would highly recommend.
Highly knowledgeable. Uses latest techniques, happy to switch to Dr. Bernard from my other doctor.
Very inattentive, sloppy as if to quickly wrap up the whole visit because he was in a hurry fir a Easter gathering. Literally spent a minute with me smirking around and prior put two interns with me. I went there being very concerned and hoping to be helped or diagnosed further. Instead they brushed me off, gave no suggestions and Dr.Bernard quickly disappeared
He is absolutely the best doctor I have ever seen of any specialty, and I have seen a lot of doctors!! He is caring, compassionate, very knowledgeable and thorough. I would recommend him to anyone!!
The visit was for my Mom. The Doctor's Assistant was nice but Dr Bernard did not listen to us, did not care about my mom, rushed us through, recommended a bunch of unwanted tests to make more money on us and extended his fake courtesy by offering a coke. I would never go there again.
Dr. Bernad was great. I got a last minute app ointment. Staff is very friendly. Dr. Bernad explains everything with details. I would strongly recommend him.
Wasn't very helpful, and met with the intern for the majority of the time. I will be taking my business elsewhere.
He is professionnal
very professional and very nice....felt like I was in good hands
He requested numerous blood work and other test that was not what I came for and never found the reason for my problem. He wasn't able to pinpoint the matter after all the visits I had with him. Not satisfied!
Saw Dr. Bernad for a2nd opinion re DX options. I brought all relevant reports, discs & info. As he flipped thru the binder, he bragged about his international presentation in 1980s re breast implants (I had bilat.mastectomies in late 80s. None of that was relevant to my appt. He then bragged about going to Sundance Film festival next & dropped some famous names. OK, but not relevant. He took a very offensive tone asking me why I question the validity of prior neurology exams. I had not questioned the validity at all. I simply wanted to know if there are any other diagnostic options to try to rule out or identify possible issues. Again, he took a very condescending tone & asked why I didn't want to wait 6 months & see how I am. I had already explained twice that my symptoms begin 6 months ago & I haven't been able to work the last 3 months. I love my career & want to work asap. My symptoms have gotten worse, i. e. falling down, memory loss & more. That is how I know something is wrong. He shrugged & seemed unconcerned. His ZocDoc pic is at least 25 yrs old & I would NOT have selected him had I known his advanced age.
Quick and efficient but as other reviewers have said, bedside manner is pretty poor. Didn't really listen and I had to repeat things a lot, asked questions I had already told him the answers to, no greeting or "nice to meet you," no good bye at the end of the appointment. Didn't really explain any of his suggested treatments or suggest what might be going on and why. I suppose if he was very simple solution works it is fine and that's what is important, but if you're looking for a more personal approach this may not be the dr for you. On another note wait time was really fast and appointment was quick and efficient.
Was seen first by two student or assistants that were not the most professional, but Dr. Bernad was good. Very old school -- no electronic notes, lots of scribbling. Don't like how you have to do tests in Alexandria.
He told me that the tests I'd had done at other locations were no good because "he's a GW doctor and test have to be done at GW" despite the fact that I had had the exact same test performed only one week before at another academic hospital across town. Had it been years since the test, it would have made sense to repeat it, but not because it wasn't at 'his' hospital. Additionally his office is outdated and cramped. He saw a patient in the waiting room while I was there, you could hear her entire story all over the whole office. His shadow didn't know how to use a blood pressure cuff despite having a MD of his own. He spent less than 30 seconds on my case despite it being quite complex.
Incredible doctor. Very straightforward and honest. I appreciated him asking me my thoughts on the matter and getting my input.
If I ever want to get to the bottom of my health issues, I can't continue to see this gentleman. Yes, he is a very nice and caring human being, concerned with the greater good of mankind. However, after my fourth visit, I got very tired of him telling each one of his medical students how I am such a wonderful person despite my previous troubled marriages. Every visit became a 2 hour ordeal of chit chat, and then contradictory medical plans. Do this, don't do that. He ordered me to have a lot of very expensive testing - namely a carotid doppler and a lumbar MRI - at two different visits but then said the symptoms were not possible for either thing he was trying to rule out. I am now on week 2 of trying to have them preauthorize my migraine meds with my insurance plan despite them being contacted by phone by me and my pharmacy and faxes from both of us. I am also trying to get them write a prescription for my breakthrough pain meds, which last week they said to come get and when I called to get them picked up today they never wrote the prescription and then said they weren't sure they're going to refill it. I can't take this anymore.
I was made an appointment with Dr. Bernad based on his ZocDoc ratings, but was disappointed with my experience. The medical student that took my history was thorough and pleasant enough. However, I waited until an hour after my scheduled appointment time to actually see the doctor, and this wasn't until I actually sought him out myself. Supposedly he had been in a meeting discussing another patient, but making someone wait that long is terrible. I needed to get to work and told him such, but he insisted on quickly discussing my case before I left. After looking over the notes the medical student wrote, he wrote me a prescription for a brain MRI and told me to come back and see him. He did apologize for the wait, but I definitely won't be back.
I started feeling excruciating pain on my arm back in May and went to an urgent care clinic where I was prescribed several medications that did not make the pain any better. I had an MRI done and made an appointment with a neurologist in my preferred clinic but I had to wait 3 weeks for the appointment. Since I couldn't wait that long to get medication or treatment that actually worked, I saw Dr. Bernad because he was the only one who could see me right away. I had to wait around 45 minutes to be seen in what seemed to be a conference room. I could hear the doctor next door chatting with another patient for an extended period of time about personal matters. Once I saw him, I found him to be rather unprofessional and nosy, and even made some inappropriate comments/questions about my personal life that were totally unrelated to my condition. The only positive aspect about this visit is that he did prescribe medication that eventually worked (anti-inflammatory, muscle relaxant and pain medication). However, I will never go back to his office.
Dr. Bernard really listens, but often to himself explain to whoever he was training. He kept talking over me to explain what I was saying to the intern, and he kind of belittled my PTSD. He also asked my religion which was awkward. He wants to be very thorough so is making do a follow up test before he treats me, but unfortunately his hours don't work well with anyone who has a job. I appreciate that he wants to work with me and create a new plan, so I will at least go to the follow up and hope it was just a bad first impression.
Dr. Bernad treated me with the utmost respect, even though my condition is complex and difficult to take care of. He knew exactly what to do, and is assisting me with my treatment very satisfactorily.
It went well.
Dr. Spent a lot of time with me.
My visit went well! He was very patient. I enjoyed the Drs. in training. Everyone was very pleasant!
argument between staff as I walked in the door. No record of my Zoc Doc appointment, took almost an hour to be seen.
I never heard back about my results and he found any excuse to run as many tests as possible. He would interrupt almost all of my sentences. He is very interesting and knowledgeable, but I don't need the circumference of my head plotted against the national average. His support team seemed to be at wit's end as well, and none to pleased with him. I feel like he may be starting to lose it in his age (the picture on zocdoc is likely from 20-30 years ago)
He is extremely thorough and really took the time to try and get to know me to determine the root of my headaches.
My information was misunderstood by the student intern who spent the majority of the time with me. The dr himself spent less than 10 minutes and essentially told me that I should continue to take all my medications and just deal with migraines. But he inferred to his Intern that I self medicating. I'm so upset with how horrible the office treatment was. I will not be returning. The only positive was I arrived early so I was taken before they are lunch.
Love Dr Bernad. He's smart, up to date on the latest treatments and really cares for his patients.
This was such a strange experience. Dr. Bednar did ask me a lot of questions about my health and migraines, but the whole time there were three interns in the room with us. It often felt like I was sitting in on a med school lesson, like I was a case study. I wouldn't have minded this, but after he had asked me questions, Dr. Bednar left the room and an interned performed the exam. He was very goofy and took a while, like he had to go through the steps in his head. Then he left the room and no one else came in to finish up. I walked to the front desk where I couldn't find anyone. When I flagged down Dr. Bednar he said the secretary would check me out, but he didn't know where she was. He never told me specifics about the medication he prescribed me and wanted me to come back another time to see results of my bloodwork. Not thrilled with the experience overall.
Dr Bernad was ok/good. His intern (forgot her name, but she was oriental/Asian and amazing!!). I spent more than half of my appointment being seen by her. When Dr Bernad finally came in to be the doctor, he actually talked with me about thing going in rather than just prescribing me medicine because I'm complaining about migraines. I have my EEG and MRI in almost 2 weeks, so after my follow-up appt. with Dr Bernad regarding my results, I will be able to better review him.
I love that fact Dr. Bernad and his Interns took the time to learn about me and my history. And was able to diagnose what may have been the problem with me all along.
It was rather unusual...I was seen by not-very-skilled interns in what looked like the doctor's office, instead of a normal exam room (they actually put me in the conference room first, then the office). The whole process felt disorganized. But Dr. Bernad is really nice and very caring and he seems to know his stuff, I think. It's really a mixed bag. If I was you, I'd give him a try, but go with your gut feeling about whether to return for a second visit.
You can tell by Dr. Bernad's mannerisms that he's a careful, thoughtful physician and person. I was very impressed with his office staff. They were at once professional, helpful, and friendly. Dr. Bernad is a seasoned professional who knows exactly what kinds of questions to ask, and he didn't waste time getting me signed up for follow-up tests and appointments. He's an extremely nice man and seems to care about all of his patients very much, as evidenced by his conversations with others in the waiting room. I would gladly refer any of my friends or family members to Dr. Bernad, because they would be in good hands.
There was a lot of discussion around what might be the issue but it's difficult to tell without further consultation.
I am not from the area, and saw Dr. Bernad to find a neurologist in the DMV area. He asked routine questions as if interrogating me; he was brash and rude. He doubted my previous diagnosis, and proceeded to ask questions in a manner that eventually made me cry. Even though he is the only neurologist on my insurance within an accessible area, I have no intention of returning.
Awful, would not recommend this doctor.
I liked him and his staff. Very polite and professional. I am hoping he can help me; seems very knowledgeable.
Very informal put my worries at ease
He's a great doctor
Awesome, as always!
Great experience. Dr. Bernad has very deep and thorough knowledge of medicine. He takes time to listen to your problem. I like the way he approaches you comprehensive health. Very pleased with the visit to him.
I selected this doctor for his reputation. Unfortunately, he had his interns examine me instead. I faithfully went back and back and back for each test he ordered. But, he never really gave me my results. He tries to sell you his nutritionist and his acupuncturist.
Dr. Bernad had visiting doctors from Asia, conducting interviews with me, and physical exams, but he would leave the room and let the visiting doctors continue. It was extremely difficult to communicate with the doctors, and it added a significant amount of time to the appointment. No one warned me that this was part of the appointment, and the total appointment must have lasted well over an hour, mainly to accomodate the visiting doctors. Dr. Bernad also had a very strange bed side manner.
He was very personable, however I was only examined by his interns while he left the room and I think that was very unprofessional. As well the reason for my visit was my shoulder and he never actually examined it. He scripted an mri for me and when I went to schedule my mri the script didn't mention which shoulder it was so I had to call and have them fax over a new one. When I called to do this (half an hour after my appt) the receptionist I had talked to didn't remember me at all, I had just talked to her half an hour prior! I work at a medicial facility and this is way under par to how we conduct our buisness. I hope for better service when I return with my mri results.
Dr. Bernad took the time time to go over my past medical history in order to understand what issues surrounded my condition. Probably the most caring doctor I have ever been to. Definitely recommend him!
He was an excellent doctor with plenty of knoledge in his profession he's very cordual and attentive
Dr. Bernad is an excellent physician, answered all of my questions. My only complaint was a short wait, however for a doctor that I trust and like, I am willing to wait.
He was not very helpful, and did not listen to what I had to say. He kept twisting the stories I would tell and did not take the time to listen clearly. He also kept asking me what what wrong with me, when he should have been finding that out for himself. I would not recommend going to him if you have problems with your head.
a soon as a get there they was really nice with me. and dr peter is so professonal and really nice dr.
He's a great doctor! Listened and addressed my concerns. He has excellent bed side manners!
Dr. Bernard is great, I can never say enough good things about him. But I would caution against using Zoc Doc for weekend appointments. Although I was told it would refresh and show in the doctor's system it didn't and I wasn't able to see him that day :(. I completely understand though just don't want anyone to make the same mistake!
I thought Dr Bernad was very compassionate and caring. He listened and seemed to honestly want to help me (not just medicate) he was thorough and I appreciate his positivity.
He's very sweet, knowledgable, and has a very impressive résumé. He's a bit quirky personality-wise, but in an endearing way. He seemed extremely caring.
The best Doctor visit I ever had. Very knowledgeable group of people. I had a very informative interaction with the guy who saw me before Dr. Bernad saw me. Dr. spent plenty of time with me to know me and my problem better. I got all my tests scheduled in the same place. Even the same guy Vick, did the blood work on me in the office which was very smooth. I had some horrible blood work experience in the past as I have skinny veins, but he was very smooth and nailed it. Highly recommended.
I feel he should have closed the door during my appointment so that our conversation could not be heard by others. I could hear his conversation with another patient in an other room as I assume the door to that room was not closed.
Very skilled, but as he was explaining things at times more to his fellow doctor than to me at times, it felt a little odd. Also, he has the world's world intern/ phlebotomist.
It was probably the worst doctor's appointment I had ever been to (doctor's appointments are usually pleasant). He was rude, condescending, and had a creepy, eerie bedside manner. I will not be returning.
Enjoyed the doctor's way of conversing with me and allowing me to speak freely about my concerns and my observations.
Very down to earth professional, considering his position.
I had to find a neurologist because I am new to the area. He got me in right away, and I had a great experience. Very knowledgeable and spent a lot of time getting to know me and my medical history. Highly recommended!
Very professional neurosurgeon, excellent credentials, and caring bedside manner. Highly recommended.
I registered through zoc doc, but it didn't show up in their system. They still were able to fit me in and I waited less than 20 minutes. Dr. Bernad's bedside manner is favorable and he was very thorough.
