Jacksonville, FL |
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!
