I've been under Dr. Bernstein for the last 8 years. She is my physician and my facial care specialist. In spite to the fact that I moved in Boca Raton area with the job and the home, I still go to her. She makes me feel good and look even better. The care she puts in all the procedures she performs is more than a patient can wish for. Her knowledge and expertise are at the highest level expected. Her competency is undeniable. Not only that but she is ready to sacrifice her time to accommodate me now when I live so far from her office. I recommended her to many of may friends and they are all very delighted with her and the staff's services. I cannot thank them enough, Silvia
Very convenient lunch time appt. Was seen quickly and on my way back to work. I always get excellent results from Rejuvia, and Dr. Bernstein especially! It's very convenient the way they work with the Brilliant Distinctions program, always getting you a little more bang for your buck. Loyal and happy client!
