Dr Stern is kind and compassionate. He "nose" (LOL) what he's doing! I would send anyone to him. (And I hate Drs)

After quitting smoking, I had a hoarseness to my voice. I went to see Dr.Stern, he spoke with me about my concerns and right away, scoped my throat. Because he saw redness and a nodule, he scheduled a surgical biopsy. Dr.Stern removed the nodule. The biopsy indicated stage 0 to stage 1 cancer. Dr.Stern and I then discussed several options. He sent me out for a 2nd opinion-both doctors concurred on a 2nd surgery. I am now cancer free because Dr.Stern was diligent about addressing my concerns.

My husband and I experienced an incompetent, rude person in Dr. Stern. Jan 2015 my husband started seeing him for pain in the back of his tongue. After 8 months of the pain getting worse Dr Stern finally told him on Aug 25th 2015 I can't help you I told you to go to a dentist. Five days later my husbands pain worsened and went to emergency room. Diagnosed with State 4 carcinoma base of tongue cancer. If properly diagnosed earlier my husband would still be alive today. He died May 6, 2017.

Both my children see Dr. Stern and he is amazing. He is patient and listens to any concerns we have. Our children absolutely love seeing him and look forward to their doctor visits. We highly recommend him.

Dr. Ryan Stern is a fabulous doctor. He was not only extremely knowledgeable, but he takes his time to make sure he knows and covers all of your questions and concerns. He combines expertise and common sense with compassion. He is hands down the most straight forward, honest and genuine doctor I have seen in a really long time -- If I could have him as my primary care family doctor I would!
