The wait to get into the doctor was just a few minutes. Once in the room the doctor saw me immediately. I went to the receptionist to check out and stood in line for 47 minutes. this is unacceptable. there should be more than one receptionist to check out patients after a doctor visit.

Dr Bernheim greets me with a big smile, shakes my hand and speaks to me as his patient, not my husband in the same room. Especially after my ruptured brain aneurysm, 2 strokes and epilepsy started 6 months after surgery, he speaks and listensto me. I appreciate his kindness especially after my speech was affected. The receptionists are rude, their conversation among the 4-5 of them was more important than helping the patients waiting in line.
