From the very first appointment back In 2009 through the present, Dr. Bernold has always been focused on my care and cure. Although I would have preferred not to have the issues in the first place, I'm very happy that Dr. Bernold has been by my side -- listening, directly communicating, recommending, treating, and following up. Always respectful, caring, thorough, and advocating on my behalf. He would be at the very top of any rating scale you offered!

When my cancer had progressed, Dr. Bernold gave me medication options and then calmly assured me that there are more treatment possibilities if needed. He is honest with me while still offering me hope. He's a very good oncologist and I'm grateful he's my doctor for this journey.
