A nurses opinion: First of all this dr saved my friends life who had melanoma and multiple other skin cancers. This Dr. is one of the kindest, wise, professional, individuals I have met. Her bedside manner is that of a very kind, loving individual. Her residents are impressive as well. I waited in waiting room for 5 minutes before I was in a room. Doctors like this raise the bar, because well if you can have one who is the whole package why not!

Dr. Sternhell-Blackwell is an exceptional doctor of dermatology. She treats me as an entire person, and considers my emotional well-being when making adjustments to my treatment plan. She is kind, patient, thorough and empathetic. I look forward to my visits with her instead of feeling dread and embarrassment.
