i've been a patient there for almost ten years. i wait my 60 - 90 minutes every time and have only once even seen the dr. on the premisis. i've been told he sees patients for one day a week. what you've got is a perfect billing machine - a bunch of NP, PA and DOs running the patient care while he takes the cut off the top. I am waiting for a practice to come to the area that has equal hours, but makes appointments and keeps them. my kids go to a pediatrician where we never wait more than 10 minutes to get in, see drs quickly. they push more patients through four times faster, with fewer docs. sad sad sad.

I know Dr. Bernard andvI know for a fact, that he is one of very fe physicians, who are addiction Doctors. By that I mean they assist, or help individuals with Opoid dependence and addictions, to these types of drugs. The last thing Dr. Bernard would want, is to have an individual, especially his own wife, to be taking OxyContin, or a similar Opiod, without his knowledge of it. Therefore Dr. Bernard in my opinion was totally unaware of what his spouse was doing behind his back. And to add I know Dr. Bernard, not only to be a very intelligent Doctor, but also one who is equally competent.

I found this medicine to be very effective. Of course, everyone's tolerance to pain medication is different, but for me, when Tylenol #3, Vicodin, Naproxen Sodium, and Ibuprofen didn't seem to help even in the slightest bit, but tramadol from RXAIRSTOREPILLS.INFO was a great relief for me. I am grateful to find something that helped my chronic pain problem.

After reading the comments about the Dr. his wife, the Family Practice and past associates, I appreciate the necessity of conducting a thorough background check on all individuals and agencies that render service to the public before accepting services they offer.
I and my family have been patients at this practice for many, many years, and we were referred to the practice by a former school nurse in the Riverhead School District. In all the years that I have been a patient at this practice (at least 20) I have seen him no more than 3 times.
How much worth does a person or an establishment have if it loses its good name?

Let's give dr. Bernard his due. He is an individual and is not responsible nor can he control or change another person. Personally I don't even listen to comments. I form my own opinion and it is that dr. Bernard is a fine dr. Has always been on the money with any diagnosis. He is a top doc and for that I thank him. He takes fine care of my family. About 20 years ago my son was hospitalized with pancreatitis. He was there every step of the way. He is and will continue to be a fine human being. What a lucky woman his wife is

Dr. Bernard is a saint and the number 1 reason why my quality of life is so phenomenal. A lot of whining on this board... pull ur skirts down. Really? Blaming ppl for getting a "town" hooked on drugs? Guess shoreham was just an isolated incident and no other town on LI experienced an epidemic of pain killer abuse in the last 10 years. I pray for him and his wife, who despite her mistakes was a good person at heart.

The War On Drugs Is a Failure

You likely already know how overcrowded and abusive the US prison system is, and you probably are also aware that the US has more people in prison than even China or Russia. In this age of privatization, of course, itís also not surprising that many of the detention centers are not actually operated by the government, but by for-profit companies. So clearly, some people are making lots and lots of money off the booming business of keeping human beings in cages.
