Dr Bernstein - Drbdiet Program — rip off and does not work!
I agree this is a rip off!!! I joined the Bernstein program and then quit as I was pregnant and rejoined after having the baby. I paid for the whole month ($600). They told me that in the past 2004 or so I received extra shots from the program, as an employee had made a mistake on the record sheet and had given me extra shots. Therefore, they refused to give me anymore shots even though I recently paid the $600 for the month. They used this money towards the shots I had received in the past. I just walked in one day and they gave me this news. The attitude of the nurse was highly unprofessional and she couldn't have cared less. I was upset about losing the $600 and the shots, but was even more upset at the attitude of the staff. They could have called me to tell me this. But how am I supposed to know if this is true? Also, if it is true, why am I paying for an employee's mistake? What if I hadn't come back after having my baby. So they took my money and I have tried speaking to someone ever since. They just got back to me after 3 months, after I had called them like 10 times, which is inexcusable if you ask me. I was also told that I couldn't speak to a supervisor. I complained at the 1-800 number as well. I can't believe how I got the run around. The diet is not a bad idea. however the costs are insane and the staff is highly untrained and unprofessional and completely disrespectful. If you're going to a diet program, you want the staff to be friendly, be motivating and respect you as an individual. I am extremely disappointed with this diet and still have no proof whether this is what really happened.
