Dr Stearns was so incredible with my 5 year old daughter today before she went into surgery. He was so kind and welcoming. After surgery he came and explained everything clearly and in a caring manner. Excellent doctor. I would recommend him to anyone who needs to have their kids get their tonsils...more
