She is the best surgeon that saved my life. Been clear to the Mayo Clinic and KU Med and had no results til I met her. Had my stomach and esophagus removed and wouldn’t have lived if they wasn’t removed. I am forever grateful for Dr Bernsten!

I had a pancreatic diversion with duodenal switch weight loss surgery in 2008. I lost and have maintained a 300-pound weight loss. I had no complications from surgery and it was done laparoscopically at a point when other surgeons would not do open surgery. Dr. Berntsen saved my life and I would highly recommend her as a surgeon.
Fantastic surgeon and great staff

Most caring and compassionate doctor/ surgeon I have ever had. You aren’t just a number or a short 15min “only time allowed “ appointment. She cares about her patients and remembers her patients and take her time to provide the best care you could ever receive. I had an urgent situation 9/2/2019- Labor Day. No place was open so had to go to ER. I ended up in very urgent and lengthy emergency surgery. Dr. Hu was surgeon on call who rushed in to hospital to perform surgery and called two teams of people in to assist with the urgent situation. Was in surgery until very late at night. It Dr.B was at my bedside very early , just hours after my surgery checking on me and came every day I was in the hospital despite her not being on call. Never gotten more than above care from Dr.B!!

Dr Berntsen is an outstanding surgeon. She is able to do most surgeries with the least invasive procedures. She has been the surgeon I request if I know I'm going to have something done. I love Dr Berntsen and would recommend her to everyone.
