I had a very good recommendation to see Dr. Stern and was not disappointed. Not only did he do an excellent job with my three trigger fingers and carpal tunnel surgery, but he was so pleasant and did a very good job explaining the procedures to me. His kind "bedside manner" made me feel like he really cared about me and I wasn't just another surgery. I would highly recommend him to anyone. His staff was great too!

My late brother, had great respect for Dr. Stern, so I chose him when I was having debilitating pain in my right thumb/hand, circa 1993. I was DELIGHTED with the results of the surgery & had my left thumb fused by him a few years later. I suffer from serious osteoarthritis, & Dr. Stern has performed 3 more surgeries (recently)on rt hand. He is an incredibly skilled, compassionate surgeon who truly cares about his patients! I would not trust my hands to anyone else. He treats me as a person!!!

He is the best, I am grateful he was able to do my surgery. My wrist was SMASHED, and he had the experience to put it back in a way that is recovering very smoothly.

I came to Dr. Stern under difficult circumstances. He met with me, and explained everything that happening with my arm, he explained that he would try to restore function to my Median Nerve in my right arm and hand. He was unsuccessful, but he tried his BEST. I would recommend Dr. Stern be placed in the book of TOP 100 DOCTORS in Cincinnati. Dr. Stern is the most pleasant smiling hands on person you could ever meet. HE IS THE BEST IN MY BOOK EVEN IF HE DIDNT FIX MY PROBLEM.

I would highly recommend Dr. Stern since he is an extremely skilled surgeon, and he takes a real interest in his patients. This is the second time that I have had to have hand surgery on two different fingers for two different problems, and both times Dr. Stern has done an excellent job taking care of the issues.

My personal experience was excellent, we have used his services in the past, not for me specifically. my wife had surgery on her hand for dupytrin.(sp) Our experience at that time was also excellent.

Dr. Stern is one great person & is a terrific surgeon. Consequently he is a very busy man, I have been lucky enough to have had him fix the contractures on both of my hands, a super job. He takes a personal intrust in your problem & is concerned with the outcome of his work The onsite surgical facilities are great & his staff is 1st. class. I give them an A !

Dr.Stern saved the use of rt hand functions since 1978 and would and have recommended Dr. Stern to others through out the past 40 years. He recommends surgery but I'm putting off until a much later date. So far I'm holding up well. Dr.Stern has been helping me to stay out of constant pain with meds and it's working for the moment. Thank you Dr. Stern.
