Not for us
A review by a patient that verified they have visited Dr. Elana Bern - Posted on November 2nd, 2017
Don't waste your time with her. We wait no less than 1 hour every time we arrive on time to our appointments, she spends less than 5 mins with us, and barely looks at our child. She has next to no beside manner. I'm sure there are better options out there.

Not helpful or reliable -- avoid at all costs
Self-verified patient of Dr. Elana Bern - Posted on March 20th, 2013
I don't feel like Dr. Bern cared about me as a patient. She was terrible at returning calls and never diagnosed me. I felt like she wrote me off. Although my blood tests indicated that I may have Crohns she simply did a stool sample not a colonoscopy. She refused to give me a colonscopy because the stool sample indicated I did not have Crohns. This is not acceptable and I have found another doctor because I was so disappointed in the lack of care she gave me.

Dr Elana Bern is a doctor we kept seeing because she made it a priority to see us, followed up via email and was communicative (called us back even if it was later at night). BUT, she was hysterical. She had us do 8 different courses of action for our baby when she wasn't gaining weight properly. She ran the same tests several times. Gave us worst case scenario...always. When our baby wasn't eating solids at 10 months, she told us that there was a certain window of time, and we needed to act on it. Sent us to a feeding specialist. SHe made us crazy! And worried. And when we canceled one appointment, she called our regular pediatrician to tell her that she was concerned that we cancelled!!!! Rather than call us! Hysterical, overly cautious, easy to pathologize. Didn't listen to us (had to repeat things more than twice so that she heard us). GET ANOTHER DR if you're at all in an ambiguous situation. This is not the dr to have if you're new parents, scared and not sure what is wrong with your child.
