Patient Comments (7)
Never been treated so bad by a doctor ever. He totally lost control. Recommended unnecessary procedure.
in Jacksonville, FL |
This office and procedure area is spotless. The people seem to really care about not giving any infections. Take time to discuss options, not just give medications and send you on your way. I have had various pain management shots given to me in other places, Maybe a little wipe and then administer the shots in the exam room. Not here. Very sterile procedure room. Dr. Sternberg delivers the medication (SHOTS) with care and accuracy. I am very happy here.

I have been a patient of Dr. Sternberg's for a few years now. He has always taken great care of me. He explains everything in great detail and he makes sure that I understand what he is saying. He also explains the procedure step by step and makes sure that I am comfortable. The staff is very friendly and always tries to help. When I am seen at his office I always feel like family and not just a patient.

Great bedside manner, takes time with his patients. This is not an office for people with pain pill addiction. He is a genuine physician for pain that will do his best to make you feel better. I had great results and I am forever.

As a long term 1995 to present pain management patient from various injuries and accidents. And then being in the first spinal injections in the region of the United States I am from originally. I know what I am talking about. I hope everyone has the pleasure of working with such a compassionate, caring, understanding and extremely knowledgeable Dr I cannot say enough good about him and his character. The staff is not to bad ether, very understanding and human.
in Baldwin |
1. Very poor bedside manner. 2. Communication skills could be better. 3. Does not encourage, foster or include the patient in the plan of care. 4. I was in pain in less than 48 after invasive pain injections. 5. He & his staff are always so suspious of the patients previous pain medication regimen!
