STAY AWAY, DR. Bernstein was the worst doctor I have EVER been to. Came here to have an orthopedist check out my spine and treat me for sciatica. He is a HUGE proponent of injections and suggested them even before lookingat the MRI results. He has NO regard for the emotional well being of his patients, dismissed me saying there is nothing to be done here that my spine is in horrible shape and I need to quit my job because I will never be able to return to work" WHO SAYS THIS? After the MRI results, I returned so he can read the results which he did not, literally said my spine is so bad there is nothing to be done........ Never have I experienced such bad treatment by a medical professional, please do yourself and save your time and money.

This is a great doctor, he is extremely knowledgeable, nice and professional with a personal touch. He does not rush through your appointment to get to the next patient. The flip side is you have to wait until he's done withthe previous guy. But this is a time well spent: at the end you get the best service. Get ready to wait long, take a book or something with you, but don't complain: you cannot have it both ways. I personally choose the doctor that is caring, explains everything and answers all your questions vs doctor that has exactly 15 minutes for you. If you really care about your health this is the doctor for you. The staff in the office is kind, friendly and also will go an extra mile so that you get what you need.

Dr. Bernstein is a wonderful doctor. He really took the time to listen to me and address all my concerns. The only downside is the office wait. I waited just about two hours before I was seen regardless of my appointmenttime but I guess that is the price you pay when you have a doctor who really doesn't limit you to a time clock and isn't rushing out the door once you are in the room. His office is also very outdated. Other than that very sweet and knowledgeable man.

Dr. Bernstein is patient, knowledgeable, and very thorough in his examination, explanations, and guidance on treatment outcomes. I am most fortunate to have consulted with him for a second opinion, and was able to avoid needless surgery recommendedby the Hospital for Special surgery, not to mention needless CT/MRI imaging prescribed by HSS. I would highly recommend Dr. Bernstein to anyone with orthopedic injuries (urgent/post-care) and is looking for a no-nonsense, experienced professional, who advocates for your best interests, and isn't immediately inclined to surgery as an option. Be prepared for potentially long waits - Dr. Bernstein is patient, attentive, and gives every patient the time and attention they need and deserve, and cannot be rushed.

The office is so out of date and the machines are ancient. The X-rays don't even come out clear enough for the doctor to see properly. I was suppose to be scheduled for an MRI because he didn't see why Iwas experiencing pain in my back. Its been over 3 weeks their office was suppose to call me about the appointment. I havent heard back. The staff isn't very friendly. This definitely was a waste of my time and dough I wont be going back.

First time visit. Apart from the ridiculous wait time of over an hour and 45 mins to be seen; the overall care,diagnosis and treatment thus far has been professional. Both nurse and Doctor are wonderfully helpful and thoughtful.

He is a very nice doctor and so is the nurse. However, there is a wait time. If you do not want to wait, make the first appointment of the day or you might be there for awhile. I had a1;30 appointment and when I arrived there were 5 people in the waiting room and the wait time woulsr have been for more than an hour. I left, but the nurse called me and asked if I would be willing to come back at the end of the day. I did and within an 1 and 15 minutes I was done with my visit. The doctor does go over the X-rays with you and has a nice bedside manner. I found the staff to be fine - not rude as others mentioned.

I will say this, I have visited a few doctor within the last few years, young specialists, supposedly the best of the best and I'm going to tell you straight up, you might not like his office because it's a bitoutdated, however this is one of the few true excellent doctor left around town that truly cares about the patients, that doesn't care about nothing else that the wellbeing of the patient. He will give you his insight and advice and his assistant it's even helpful than him, she's lovely and will give you advice about health that you don't even have to ask for. Old school doctor that respect his ethic. Thank you doctor leon.

I am never coming back to Dr. Berstein's office solely for the wait time! He had good bedside manner, looked at my hand and x-rays carefully, however I waited 2 hours to be seen and spent another HOUR going over medicalhistory/getting and looking over x-rays! What was the point of filling out my forms online through ZocDoc if I have to fill them out yet again on paper!? There was another patient there who had been there for a total of 4 hours! My time is valuable so I will definitely NOT be coming back.
