Dr. Stern is good,but he can be aloof and short on listening. I was offended by his statement " I can't make up something to keep you off" that wasn't my purpose for seeing him, even though my pain prevailed. I was done with him when he said " I don't have to worry about you anymore" well thanks your right, you don't ever have to worry about me or seeing me ever again!

I found Dr. Stern by accident while visiting another doctor in the same office building. What a marvelous discovery! He and Dr. Pavicic are both excellent practitioners as well as kind and caring individuals. I travel there from Dearborn, MI and find the trip well worth my time. I will never go elsewhere!

Over the last several years that I have been a patient of Dr. Stern's and have found him to be highly competent and very skilled. I am a type 1 diabetic and of course mindful of the need to maintain "healthy feet". He has been a great help in achieving that goal.

Dr. Stern is very professional in his approach, highly competent and clearly cares about his patients. He has performed several in-office surgeries on me over the years that had excellent results without my taking the more traditional (and costly) hospital out-patient approach.
