I recently saw Dr. Stern for the third time for a routine colonoscopy. I am so grateful to Dr. Stern and all the competent, caring people on staff there. I was due for a colonoscopy last year and my insurance did not include Dr. Stern. The people at the office of the doctor they referred me to were so cold I just did not feel comfortable with them. I changed insurance this year and I am so glad I could go back to Dr. Stern and the wonderful people in his practice!

I had been having severe pain in the upper abdomen area, and bouts of other stomach issues. I had visited other Doctors, and had no relief just spent money. I took a chance on Dr. Stern, HE IS GREAT!!! He scheduled me a colonoscopy & endoscopy. Dr. Stern did a mild procedure once he found the problem, and put me on THE CORRECT MEDS. His staff is Awesome(Sheri, Rebeca,Lenea) you all are kind caring very &rofessional. Thanks Dr. Stern and Staff

I have been a patient of Dr. Stern for many years, and I travel almost an hour to see him. He is caring, patient, and thorough. Even in my 30s, I have a somewhat complicated GI system (to say the least) and he works with me to create the best plan of action for my digestive health. His nurse, Sheri, is by far the best nurse you will find. She is knowledgable and kind and caring. This practice is great!
