My old feet appreciate the regular rejuvenation that Dr. Stern gives them! I am always embarrassed by them, but the doctor is purely professional!

I read some of the other reviews here about Dr. Stern. I have been struggling with plantar fasciitis for the past 18 months, and have seen two podiatrists previously. It would also get a tiny bit better when I stopped exercising but would come back the minute I got back to normal activity. Dr. Stern told me once examining how I walked and my foot that we was certain I would walk out "pain free." He taped up my foot in a magical way, fixed my shoes, and low and behold - I walked around the next 4 days pain free, before going back to him to tape again. I am already super impressed, haven't had this close to what feels like recovery ever in the last 18 months I've struggled with this. He has a funny demeanor, but he knows his $H*T. Definitely give him and try if you've had similar frustrations!

Stern is both professional and funny. He takes care of his patients with expertise, while cracking jokes. He made me feel comfortable, even though he had to shave skin off of my foot

Dr. Stern really cares about his patients. I saw him multiple times for my Plantar Fasciitis and he took time to examine me and explained the cause. I had to call him for emergency on Saturday and he answered my call and also called me on Sunday to check on me. I’ve never met a doctor who took care of a patient like Dr Stern. He is very kind and caring. I highly recommend Dr. Stern for anyone with foot injuries.

Dr. Stern spent 90 minutes with me assessing how I walk, root-cause of feet pain and swollen ankles. His initial recommendations relived the swollenness and J’m confident on the proposed treatment/“next steps”. Thank you, Dr Stern! Marcos

I made an appointment through the website after hours the day before my appointment. I was able to get a 9 AM appointment and Dr. Stern, came in and immediately helped me with my very sore toe. I walked out with an adjusted pair of orthotics, personally crafted by Dr. Stern, and advice on new shoes. It was a good experience.

Dr Stern, from the start was encouraging and accommodating. He knew immediately after examining my feet what may have caused the damage on both toes. I appreciated his witty, but professional demeanor and would recommend him highly as the go to pediatrist.
