Specialties

Dr. Donald H Bernstein has the following 3 specialties

  • Geriatric Medicine

    A geriatric specialist is a physician who treats the elderly population and the conditions that most commonly affect them. These doctors have special training in the effects of aging on the body and mind of a patient.
    Geriatric specialists treat common ailments faced by senior citizens, such as frailty, incontinence, memory problems, arthritis, senility, decreased functioning and more.
    In addition, geriatric specialists keep abreast of the different medications that an elderly person is prescribed to treat their more complex health issues in order to decrease adverse side effects and avoid dangerous drug interactions.

  • Rheumatology

    A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
    Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus. These are all conditions that involve a lot of pain and make mobility difficult. Rheumatologists use medications, such as analgesics, NSAIDs, steroids, DMARDs, infliximab, and adalimumab, as well as occupational therapy, in order to decrease pain and improve a patient's quality of life.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

He has been my doctor for fifteen years and has always been caring, attentive to my concerns, and patient with my questions. I'm in better health now than I was fifteen years ago. They don't come any better than Dr. Bernstein

The doctor was extremely personable, caring and his bedside manner was very pleasant. He gave me the feeling that I was the only patient on his mind at that moment and he followed up the next day. I rate him overall as terrific.

poor followup

Very disappointed and frustrated with his lack of followup and monitoring of medical condition. I was alone in seeking additional treatment for both high blood pressure and cholesterol.Changed doctors in order to continue healthy life.

Didn't even get a phone call back

The receptionist asked for my insurance carrier (Aetna) I left my work and cell phone number, but never heard back from Dr. I guess he is more concerned with payment than caring for a prospective patien t
