I have been seeing Dr.Bernstein for about 16 years and I do have to say he is the most caring and informative Dr. I have been to.
I recently moved to Lake Geneva and will definitely keep seeing him

Dr Bernstein was very knowledgeable & professional during our appointment for problems with my hands. I was very pleased that he took a lot of time explaining intricate information about my diagnosis. He also gave me written follow-up instructions & handouts that will be helpful to look over. I will definitely return if I encounter any further issues.

Dr. Bernstein shed new light on a problem that two prior doctors have either missed, or chose not to comment on. He’s skilled, competent, and compassionate.

I've been seeing Dr. Bernstein for many years. He previously did surgery on my left hand. I like that he explains things really well, gives me written documentation to take home and always asks if I have any questions. He is the ONLY Dr. I want to see regarding hand issues.

Dr. Bernstein and his PA are wonderful! He has been my husband's hand surgeon for about 15 years and recently my doctor for shoulder issues. He is friendly and explains and educates us on the condition and offers multiple treatment options so we can decide the best course of action for ourselves. He is a skilled surgeon and we have experienced great results. We trust and highly recommend him!

My first visit this morning went very much as expected. I chose Dr. Bernstein based on reviews and online description, with a dose of usually dependable gut feeling as well. I was not disappointed. He is everything you’d like to have from your doctor- thorough, compassionate, honest, and skilled. Well deserved five stars.
