This is by far the most efficient and friendliest office I’ve EVER been to...I was in and out in less than 30 minutes and feel 100% satisfied with Dr. Stern’s care and the amount of attention he provided. He’s extremely knowledgeable and has impeccable bedside manner. The front desk staff were very friendly and seemed like a fun group—like they enjoy their jobs. I felt much less anxiety because of them. The nurse was absolutely the sweetest and a very patient person who did a great job explaining what I needed to do for my procedure. I wish this was my primary care office!

I have been a patient of Dr. Sterns since 2005 for a total of 4 routine colonoscopies. Dr. Stern was highly recommended to me by others in the medical industry and I have trusted all of his exams and explanations to be thorough and accurate. He is also very friendly with a great bedside manner. I highly recommend him, as well as his staff!

In my opinion, he is a wonderful person. As a Doctor is a Blessing from God. Since 1971 after I have my first child I developed a problem with my bowels movement. Years after years I was visiting different doctors and getting laxative over the counter with no result. About 17-20 yrs. ago I visit Dr. Stern and problem resolve. He took care of me(I still under his care) I visit him yearly now. He prescribes the correct medicine and I don't have any more problems. I highly recommend him.

I was referred to Dr Stern after I have been treated for 4 years for acid reflux without any success. I had gone through multiple procedures with other gastro doctors. I told my primary I wanted the best gastro doctor and he recommended Dr. Stern. He was right. It just took one visit and Dr Stern figured it out. You will find a dr. who listens and communicates in a simple way for you to understand. Very down to earth dr. and you find very easy to talk and relate to. The best in the business.

Dr. Stern is a great doctor! He is very patient and listens to everything you have to say without jumping to conclusions like the common doctor. I had an issue that lingered for almost a year and my wife recommended him to me. When I went to see him he examined me and knew exactly what my issue was and gave me a prescription. I went to my follow up and never felt better. Highly recommend him.

I had both an endoscopy and a colonoscopy with Dr. Stern. I made a follow-up appointment to review the findings with him. Dr. Stern was very patient and spent approximately a half hour with me explaining the results of the two procedures. I found the doctor to be both gracious and thorough with respect to covering the results.

He's a wonderful diagnostician. After seeing a primary care physician and another GI who were unable to help, Dr. Stern treated me and I got the results I needed! He's patient and takes the time to answer any questions. He's extremely thorough, and orders tests that he deems necessary.
