My right hand is in very awful pain and after talking to doctor Stern and burgh and getting direction from him on what to do I will go with the surgery because I will go with the surgery as I have no other choice. I am still working and it is very tough to make it through the day. I like my wife and I liked him very much as he seemed to be very knowledgeable in is mature in the work he does.

I found Dr. Sternenberg to be very helpful in explaining what was possible to help with the arthritis problems I have been experiencing in my hands/fingers. He gave me a cortizone shot for the right hand and scheduled a follow up appointment for the other hand in September. He was very knowledgeable and kind.

He did my carpal tunnel release on my right wrist and my only complaints are he had to bump my surgery multiple times because he was overbooked and during pre and post OP appointments he is very rushed.

Not only is Dr. Sternenberg an amazing orthopedic surgeon, but he is kind and caring to his patients. He shows genuine concern and takes time to answer patient questions and explain procedures. He performed surgery on my arthritic thumbs to helped restore pain-free function and use of my hands. I am very thankful to have found him and I thank God for him. Also, his nurse, Jill, is an incredible blessing...so caring and kind. I deeply appreciate them for the kind care of me.

This doctor wasted my time and incorrectly diagnosed my wrist condition. Thankfully a few years later I saw one of his peers that was able not only to diagnose the issue, but correct it.
