Dr Sternthal got me thrown out of practice after being there 25 yrs. Used excuse I did not follow doctor recommendations which is a blatant lie. I have a specialist appn't. My Dr Katz is gone for health issues so I was stuck with follow up care with this doctor. Very rude, bad bedside manner. Didn't even do proper exam when I had colostomy surgery and need follow ups. I do not recommend this office. Unprofessional, cold, no compassion. Manager just as bad! Stay away find a new doctor.

This was my first appointment with Dr Sternthal, however my husband is a patient of his & we are both very pleased with his care. Dr Sternthal is kind, very thorough & has a pleasant bedside manner. I would reccommend him to anyone looking for a gastroenterologist.
in Coral Springs, FL |
Dr. Sternthal is a good doctor, but his office staff are AWFUL! I tried to explain my need to schedule a colonoscopy in advance because we live overseas, and I wasn't even allowed to explain my reasons. I was cut-off in mid-sentence. There are too many good doctors in the area to put up with rude staff.

Dr. Sternthal - is informative, thorough, great listener and extremely knowledgeable. He takes ample time with his patients and I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of a GI doctor.
in Margate, FL |
I am new patient, I had surgery for diverticulitis and needed to now see a gastrointestinal doctor. As with all new doctors your fear of the first visit is overwhelming. . I was so glad that Dr. Sternthal was my doctor, he explained and answered all my questions and made me feel so comfortable.
in Coral Springs |
I have been a patient for several years. He is always thorough, kind and knowledge. I have had a very bad medical year and he is the only Doctor I fully trust. I am grateful that I found him. I can't recommend him enough.
in Margate, FL |
Dr. Michael Sternthal has been my Gastroenterologist for a long time, I trust him very much as a doctor, I love him as a person, he talks 1st with you, he is the kind who seat in his chair across from you and listen to your concern. The staff is great too, very helpful and nice. Their professionalism is rare these days. After procedures Dr. Sternthal sits with you and explain about his finding and patiently answers any questions. I waited too long to submit a survey. He is genuine!
