My first experience with a different psychologist was not a good one so honestly I wasnt expecting much. However Dr. Bernstein saved my life. Twice. I was deeply depressed - going through a divorce & many unresolved childhood issues. He helped me to work through my issues & depression so I could get on with my life. Unfortunately I got into a violent relationship. Even though I couldnt afford to see him Dr. Bernstein had me come to his office & he got me the help I needed to get away from the abuse & get my life back. I would recommend his services to anyone. I truly believe that if it were not for his help I would have either committed suicide or been killed by my now ex-boyfriend. He helped me to get my self esteem back & to deal with my issues & get my life on track. I'm eternally greatful. So if you are reading this Dr. Bernstein, although its not nearly enough I THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART! Kathy C.
I saw the doctor four times and did not feel that I was given a plan / road map / milestones for success. The lack of definition was disconcerting I prefer a more formal approach with meassurable results Also, when I requested a 10 min phone call between appointments, I was told the charge would be $50. The policy states "extended calls will be billed at normal rates" - 10 minutes is not extended
Even with a sick parent, work stress, and a troubled marriage, I was reluctant to reach out for assistance. After months of sleepless nights, and self medication I found that sadness and anxiety were major parts of my life. I reached out to Dr. Bernstein who equipped me to better cope with life's challenges. Thank you very much doctor!
