Escondido, CA |
My wife had extensive upper body pain. Headache, neck, shoulders and arms that would not life above the shoulders. Dr. Stern said it was not worth an operation. Another Dr. operated and all previously listed pains were gone also including back pain, foot cramp, and palsy finger. Dr. Stern also said my wife had extensive arthritis in her spine. The operating surgeon said her spine was healthy. It was a life changing event finding another doctor.

Courteous,comprehensive,incredibly knowledgeable of all the latest technology and willing to carefully listen to all my complaints and symptoms. He gave me a plan and suggested artificial disc replacement for my problem .I wasn't aware of this option.really glad I came to him.

Dr. Stern is thorough, brilliant, cares about his patients, and has a wicked sense of humor (laughter is the best medicine). Without his thoroughness, I could have had a surgery that would have left me paralyzed. Instead, he ensured I take care of all my spine issues, one at a time, and in the order to preserve my health.
