I had an appointment with Dr. Sternthal approx 2 weeks ago after not seeing him for a few years. He was very understanding and thorough in his exam. I highly recommend Dr. Sternthal for any and all GI related problems. My wait time was less than 5 minutes which I appreciate being a fellow health care professional who follows a schedule as close as possible.

I saw Dr. Sternthal on Wednesday February 13 he scheduled me for colonoscopy. I must say he is very easy to talk to he’s very compassionate understanding and I think he’s an excellent gastroenterologist I came in on the wrong day and he made time for me and it took them I don’t think I think maybe that the list for 15 minutes where I was already prepared prepped ready in a colonoscopy room I’ve never seen anything like this before any other hospital they are truly amazing I highly recommend

Scheduled for a colonoscopy and rectal repair. This is the second and last time I will go their. Did the colonoscopy(not the repair). We were rushed out of the office. Six hours later I had a 106 temperature but, also chills. Rushed to emergency. The polyp he found was removed but, he punctured through the second layer of my rectum thus, causing my body to go into septic shock. I had to have emergency surgery and was told I may die due to my condition. I had a heart rate of 31. NO follow up!

Dr. Sternthal is hands-down the best Gastroenterologist I have met ! His demeanor is calm, positive, thorough, attentive, flexible, and personal. We saw him at when we were very concerned about my husband’s health. Dr. Sternthal made us feel comfortable, asked us all the appropriate questions to establish what could be wrong. He then promptly scheduled all necessary tests. Lastly, I appreciated the follow-up and willingness to answer questions after the fact. A big Thank you to Dr. Sternthal !

Dr. Sternthal has been my gastro Doc since 2005 and I cannot say enough about how awesome he is! he takes his time with you, explains everything thoroughly, and listens to every concern you have, he is reassuring, and above all compassionate! he also has a pretty cool sense of humor which ease's the anxiety of seeing a doctor for sure! my brother and sister-in-law are also patients of his on my recommendation and echo exactly what I am saying here.

I particularly appreciate Dr. Sternthal. He is not one to rush off, but meticulously goes over the details of all questions and concerns (and it's never TMI). He pointed out visual aids that I could fully comprehend what is going on. His bedside manners are impeccable, and he has a way of de-stressing his patients. The facilities are state-of-the-art and pristine. The office staff is warm and caring. If I had to travel through two counties, I would to be under his professional care!

I am not sure if the Dr. is any good because I never made it long enough in his waiting room to see him. I had a 4pm appt. but was called the day before to change it to 12pm. I did saying I would go on my lunch hour. I arrived at 11:40am to fill out the new patient paperwork. I left at 12:40 without ever seeing the Dr. They said they still had no idea how long it would be. They also said once I was in back, I would wait again. Don't go unless you want to wait at least an hour.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!
