Mary Bernton, MD

Hospital Medicine
I strive to treat everyone with dignity and respect during their time in the hospital.

Approach To Care

Dr. Bernton chose internal medicine as a specialty because it focuses on the whole person, not just their illness. She strives to keep patients informed and part of the decision-making process during what is often a difficult time. She enjoys taking care of patients from diverse backgrounds and believes everyone is entitled to quality healthcare.
