Had surgery back in April. Best decision I ever made was going with Dr. Stern. I am beyond happy with my results and would recommend him! I think he is very reasonable in his pricing and is beyond nice. His staff his very helpful and is there for whatever you need. I can't thank Dr. Stern and his staff enough

in Boca Raton, Fl |
I recently decided I wanted to get some work done and went to 5 different doctors for consultations. While price wasn't any determine factor although he was very reasonable and comparable to others, we went with the Doctor that had the most knowledge, explained everything we needed to know and pros and cons of what I wanted to have done, and our comfort level with the Doctor. We chose Dr Stern and I can't be happier with my results! I would highly recommend he and his staff to anyone.
