Dr. Stern went above and beyond! After he treated the initial issue I came in for he spent an additional hour identifying, explanaining, and recommending remedies for several other/longer term issues with my feet I wasn’t even aware of! Highly recommended.

Excellent service. Dr. Stern deserves a five star plus. Thorough and competent. He gives me a new appreciation for my own feet which have been giving me much pain. I learned I did'nt have to live with the pain. He is a wonderful human being also. His patient care is genuine. I am lucky to find him on the web. I read all the comments people submitted, and in between all the lines I realize he is a good doctor and took a chance. He did not disappoint. I recommend him to anyone with any kind of foot problem.

Dr. Stern is the rare breed of doctor that truly loves his work and his patients; after three weeks of procrastination and misdiagnosis by another, Dr. Stern took me that day for an infected Plantar Wart. His front office is equally lovely and pleasant. Highly recommended office.

I recently sought Dr. Stern's help for pain problems that I've been having for over 4 years. It's only been a couple of weeks, but I've already experienced a significant improvement. He takes his time to explain things and follows-up on your progress. He is a very attentive and thorough provider of care. I highly recommend Dr. Stern!

Dr. Stern has taken a genuine interest in making sure my body stays injury free. I would not be able to run the mileage that I do without Dr. Stern's help.
