Dr. Berntsen grew up on a farm in southeastern Kansas, and completed her entire medical education and residency at Kansas University. She’s a proud Kansan, through and through. Her versatility in the operating room (she specializes in laparoscopic, bariatric, general, vascular and hernia surgery) is a reflection of her compassion — she enjoys the challenge and reward of helping people overcome diseases through surgical care, and she aims to treat each of her patients with the level of care she’d want for her own family.

I had no complications from my surgery that was performed. more than 10 years ago. My weight is now stable with a healthy BMI, Type 2 Diabetes was reversed. I no longer have high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or sleep apnea. Joint pain from Rheumatoid Arthritis greatly reduced and is manageable without medication. Dr Berntsen is not only an excellent surgeon but she takes great care to equip patients with the instruction needed to maintain the weight loss and remain healthy. My quality of life is improved 100 percent. Dr Berntsen is an outstanding and highly skilled surgeon who follows patients thoroughly after the surgery to address any concerns that may arise. I highly recommend Dr Berntsen and her amazing staff!

Dr. Berntsen just operated on my 5 week old baby yesterday morning. All staff at the hospital told us she was the absolute best! She took time to really chat with us, give us the plan, reassurance, and did an exceptional job. It is hard to let your tiny baby be wheeled away for an operation, but I knew he was in the best hands!

Dr. Berntsen did an excellent job of explaining exactly what she would be doing during my surgery and made sure I understood. She listens and answers all my questions in a patient manner. She's great and I totally recommend her!

Dr. Bernsten is a caring physician who explains things in terms I can understand. When I needed surgery 5 years ago I knew she was the surgeon I wanted because I knew others who had been pleased with her. When I needed surgery again this past November I again chose her. Her office staff and nurses are great too!! She is a great surgeon - I’m very pleased with the outcome.
