“Amazing Doctor! A few weeks ago I underwent a Branchial cleft cyst removal and tonsillectomy. I was quite anxious about it given that it was my first ever surgery and the cyst was quite large so there were risks of nerve damage/bleeding. But he was very reassuring and made me feel very comfortable and safe before the surgery and the surgery went great! I am now just two weeks post op and practically back to normal. Thanks to his skilled technique all my nerves were conserved and I had no complications whatsoever. Additionally, his bedside manner is excellent and he is incredibly professional and knowledgeable. He really takes the time to answer all your questions and ensure that you are comfortable and fully informed. I am someone that tends to ask a lot of questions but he was incredibly patient and answered all my questions comprehensively. I cannot thank him enough for his kindness and for making my first experience with surgery a great one!“

    My experience as Mr. Bernstein's patient was nothing short of stellar. He patiently takes the time to understand you questions and assures you in various instances with respect to any concerns you may have. He also takes the time to call and follow up if and when needed. I had 2 instances and he did not hesitate to follow up as soon as he could. As a patient, I appreciated his involvement despite a potentially very busy schedule he has as a doctor. You feel very safe and taken care of, which is so crucial when you are a patient. Prior to being his patient, I saw two different ENT surgeons both of whom suggested my concerns would require complex procedures. In hindsight, I can understand these were mostly opportunistic doctors trying to take advantage of the insurance system. It is very hard to find a doctor, who is very knowledgeable in their own field and professional to do only what is absolutely necessary. He explained everything in advance with sufficient clarity and as a patient I felt in great hands. Appreciate his respect and dedication to his field and patients. Amazing doctor!

    Thyroidectomy
    I was referred to Mr Bernstein by my endocrinologist for a total thyroidectomy and cannot recommend him enough. He is very professional, knowledgeable and has great bedside manner. I felt prepared and relaxed at the prospect of my procedure. I was very impressed with the quality and care he puts into his work - the surgery went very well, with a quick recovery period, and a very small, tidy scar.
