I was treated for Hep-C with Dr Stephen, She is very informative ,she had me on a very successful plan. I am now cured of Hep.C and very grateful to have her as my doctor.

Two years ago, during a gall bladder surgery the surgeon discovered a couple of small tumors on my pancreas. He dismissed them as "nothing to worry about." Dr. Stephen, however, was adamant that I follow up in the pancreastic cyst clinic at Hopkins. I did and learned that these tumors are precancerous and require careful follow up. My husband and I are both patients; we find her to be kind, professional, knowledgeable, diligent and overall first rate. We can't recommend her highly enough.

Dr. Stephen makes the time to listen and talk to you offering comprehensive solutions that aren't just about medication. I also had an endoscopy and she and the anesthesiologist were fantastic, listening to my concerns and addressing them.

I made an appointment for a colon exam during my visits with Dr Stephen with blood work and all she discovered I had Hepatitis C and found ways through my insurance to get me treated with Harvoni. This pill saved my life as well as Dr Stephens because without her alerting me that i had Hepatitis C i would have never know so If you have HepC please contact Dr Stephens to get you started on the medicine Harvoni its a miracle pill I no longer have Hepatitis and it was no side affects for me

I am a 70 year old male who had never had a colonoscopy. I had some colon problems and saw Dr. Stephen. She recognized the seriousness of my condition, arranged for an immediate colonoscopy that showed I had colon cancer,and she then arranged for me to see a surgeon. Her quick action allowed to treat the cancer in its earliest stage. I have two recommendations. Get a colonoscopy. One day of discomfort is better and cheaper than surgery and 6 months of chemo and call Dr. Stephen.
