I started my review but unfortunately I’m not allowed enough space to state my actual review of Dr Sternberg. He came highly recommended in his field , has done thousands of these surgeries so this was a no brained I thought. I will just say as long as you don’t care how you’re treated, dealt with, , and the fact that he has absolutely NO people skills, your choice. Unfortunately I’d much rather feel like a patient he cares about than just another thing in line to cut cancer out. Horrible exper

Unfortunately office staff is your gateway to the office and your first experience. My dad's appointment was "moved up" from 12/3 to 11/30 only upon arrival, after a 1 hour drive he wasn't there. When speaking with Michelle in scheduling my mom gave her solid advice, "confirm dates and times" she RUDLY said, "Thanks for telling me how to do my job, have a nice day"!
