Dr. Paul Bernstein has the following 2 specialties
A nephrologist is a physician who is specially trained to diagnose and treat conditions affecting the kidneys or renal system.
A nephrologist will determine through urine analysis, blood test, X-ray, sonogram, or kidney biopsy how well the kidneys are functioning and will then prescribe a special diet and exercise program, medication or dialysis - a process by which a machine filters the blood when the kidney is no longer capable of doing so.
- 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.

Dr. Bernstein is one of the most fantastic doctors I have ever worked with. At my first appointment, he spent almost 2 hours with me discussing my kidney issue. When I had blood work done, he called me the very same day to tell me the results. He is caring and empathetic, and I would recommend him to anyone.
You will wait FOREVER to see Dr. Bernstein, but the wait is well worth it. When I went in for my first visit, Dr. Bernstein spent close to an hour with me, answering all of my questions and explaining all of my lab results in detail. I have never received this level of attention and care from any type of doctor.
Very recently I found my advanced stage IgA Nephropathy. Dr Paul has played a vital role in understanding my case and providing very crucial information. Doctor has tremendous knowledge in nephropathy. Dr Paul is very meticulous about patients case and collecting every piece of information. Dr Paul is very friendly and very caring. He made myself come-out of this defect phobia and uncovered my possibilities. I would strongly recommend Dr Paul to anyone.
