If you are looking for a doctor and you hire an attorney to retain Dr Karen Bardenstein or if you are actually the one paying her you will do well in her recommendation based on my opinion from my experiences. Unfortunately,, Dr Karen Bardenstein does not seem to take abuse, Parental Alienation, or Domestic Violence into consideration in her magical recommendations, especially if you are not the one who retained her. "It does not matter if he is mean". Action Ohio wrote her a letter in regards to her conduct pertaining to the recommendation she provided not once but twice for my little boy and I. Stay Clear!!.
