Patient Comments (2)

I don't feel that procedures were explained or options discussed. Anesthesia choices were not explained. I felt like a side of beef at a slaughter house. Out come of procedure was not as hope for.

Dr. Stern is a very professional and informative doctor. He listens while in the exam chair and takes my complaints seriously, he tries his best to resolve any issue. My grandmother had cataract surgery with him and said the experience was wonderful. He even gave her a carnation after the surgery...more
