We have had a lot of trouble finding a practitioner who could work and Dr. B has been trying to see everyone. We have interviewed several who did apply but those did not work out or come to fruition.
Thank fully we do have Kristen Haight who is extremely experienced and very qualified but can only cover a few days a week due to other obligations. Kristen is very thorough which sometimes leads to your wait times are a bit long. The silver lining is that she will give you and your family the time you need to ask any questions you may have and to explain everything in detail for you so you. So, please be patient.
We have just recently hired Patrician Jankiewicz who will also be able to help a few days a week, though her hours are limited due to a family health issue which she must attend to. Patti is also extremely well qualified and has years of experience. Being new to our practice it will take her a little while to settle in but will be able to help us offer more appointment times especially in our Beacon office.
With both Kristen and Patti complimenting Dr. Bernardez we should soon be able to get a normalized schedule again and better serve the communities in both Orange and Dutchess Counties. It has always been important for Dr. Bernardez to offer great bedside manner, quality, compassionate personalized care to Beacon, Glenham, Fishkill, Wappingers, Cold Spring and all of the communities on the Dutchess County side of the Hudson River.
Orange Pediatric Care's tradition of that quality, compassionate, personalized care in New Windsor, Newburgh, Cornwall, Vails Gate, Highland Falls, Walkill, and all of the other communities which we serve is also very important to us and we are proud and blessed to be able to have you as our patients, friends, and neighbors!
