" Dr Bernstein is an exceptional orthopedic doctor. I felt I could completely trust her for a potential difficult post op infection issue and she did not dissapoint. Her show of empathy and beside manner is comparable to none. Also her PA Stacey Holtz was true professional during a very difficult hospital stay as she facilitated the best care I believe I could obtain. This group is very much appreciated! "
