Dr Stern addressed my issues and outlined a plan to care for some lingering heel pain I have had. I walked out of the office feeling much better than when I came in after he taped up my foot and gave me instructions for how to care for it in the interim before my next appointment

So appreciate the amount of time and consideration given to the complex issue I have had for many years Seen podiatrists in the past also orthopedics everybody only touched the surface and did not try to go deep and figure out the real problem So thankful to Dr Stern for his critical thinking and for caring

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!

Dr. Stern fitted me with orthotics and cured my foot problem. Dr. Stern was always available for my numerous recheck appointments. He was caring and professional wanting to insure that my orthotics were comfortable and I was happy.

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!
