Patient Comments (3)
in Phoenix, AZ |
Kind, caring and brilliant physician! Helped me get my life back and pain to a manageable level.
in Wickenburg, AZ |
She over books both office visits and surgeries - left us waiting for surgery due at 12P until 7P, was too tired to operate and consequently messed up the surgery, which she had to redo 1 month later. The 2nd surgery was even worse, waited 2 1/2 hours past the appointed time and resulted in excruciating pain, which we had to go to The Barrow Institute to have repaired. Her office waits are up to 6 hours, she is rude at times - as well as her assistant Jennifer Kaiser.
in Gilbert, AZ |
There is no better doctor in her field of expertise. I have been a patient for 17+ years. Thanks to her, I am still walking. I completely trust her and any treatment recommendations she advises. Dr Stearns will go to any length to help. She is a Godsend.
