Dr. Stern is a great guy, and extremely helpful with all foot and ankle problems. He diagnoses the problem quickly, and was able to offer immediate relief to my heel/achilles issue. He even took the time to make a pair of custom "lifts" for the heels in my shoes that provided immediate relief. Above and beyond the call! I will always highly recommend Dr. Stern for any foot, ankle and leg issues!

After 15 years of plantar fasciitis and trying everything to cure it, I was considering surgery. Then I found Dr. Stern online and was impressed by all the positive reviews. Long story short, he got me great orthotics, provided excellent advice, and is the most professional and caring doctor. I have started running again, which I missed for so long. Thank you Dr. Stern!!

Dr Stern is so very thorough and is an excellent communicator. He made appointments for my husband and I while we were traveling thru San Francisco. He enabled us to walk around with out the pain we were experiencing before he cared for our feet. He's just an awesome podiatrist!
