Bernadette D. Bernardo, MD

Philosophy of Care

Whether being seen for an acute gynecological problem, a well-woman visit, or a pregnancy visit, I am a firm believer in patient focused care, achieved by fully explaining all available options in clear and concise terms to my patients. This dedication to patient-centric care relies on taking the necessary time to educate the patient on the process and anticipated outcomes. Women and their families can be assured that they will receive the best possible care, as I encourage their input to fully address their needs and expectations.
