Throughout the years, Dr Berntsen has been my surgeon for various procedures. I trust her completely and find her to be an extremely good surgeon who demonstrates sound judgment and exceptional thoughtfulness towards my wellbeing. She is confident in her work and explains clearly what she thinks is best for me. I appreciate the fact that she looks at me as an equal. Her compassion for another human being is off the charts. You can tell that Dr. Berntsen loves what she does and I have found with any profession or situation, if someone loves what they do they want to do their very best. Dr. Berntsen is that person. I highly recommend her.

Back in September 2029 I had to have my stomach and esophagus removed due to a faulty Nissen Fundoplication Wrap. I had been to the Mayo Clinic and heard some disrespectful remarks from surgeons there, and was about to go to Florida when I found out about dr Bernsten. She is the best. She saved my life and I am forever blessed that she is my surgeon.

Dr. Berntsen has changed my life! I have been struggling with my weight since I was a child (a long, long time ago), and Dr. Berntsen has given me so many healthy options for living a different life.

Dr. Berntsen has been my Surgeon since 2012. She did my weight loss surgery, my skin removal, exploratory surgeries, etc. I'm a current patient of Dr. Berntsen's. I am looking at another surgery in the near future as well. She has taken care of me through many hospitalizations and complications due to my high risk medical history as well. She helped give me my life back through my weight loss surgery in 2012. I had suffered lung damage from being in a coma for 3 weeks from H1N1 (swine flu) in 2009. I could barely walk 10 feet without having trouble breathing after the coma and was in a wheelchair. I could write pages about the things she has done for me in the last 10 years. Trust if you need a surgeon, Dr. Berntsen is an excellent surgeon who cares about you, your outcome, well-being and makes you a priority.

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!
