My husband, Keith J. Jones, was a patient of Dr. Sternheim in 20ll and 2012. My husband had kidney cancer. Dr. Sternheim was upfront, caring, innovative, and worked with the utmost of integrity to help us through a horrific time. We saw Dr. Sternheim weekly for a year. Here it is 2020 and I can not forget the excellent care he gave my loved one. Thank you Dr. Sternheim. I have thought of you often, especially when I passed your office and wanted to thank you, again, sooner.............

My nightmare began when I had to wait more than an hour before I saw the doctor. if you do not care about time, then this is an office where you can spend half a day waiting for a doctor. but the surprises did not end there. As expected, I paid for the visit, which was $ 25, but after 2 weeks I received an extra bill that says I have to pay another $ 5, I was very surprised by this because I was not informed about it when I called the office to find out why I should pay extra I was told that, it turns out, the tests were done 2 times, right in his office and some of the tests were done in a completely different laboratory. I was charged twice because another lab sent a bill too. I asked why you didn’t tell me that you were going to do the tests and charge me extra. I did not get any clear answer to this question. They never warn you about how much money you will have to pay extra from your wallet.

Dr. Sternheim was absolutely wonderful in the first office new patient visit. He was so attentive, so excellent in his manner, so interested in sharing so much information. Having seen a lot of doctors recently, I can tell you that Dr. Sternheim was just the BEST! WOW were we lucky to get him as luck of the draw when we made appointment with the Hematology Oncology Association, (the other doctors there could as equally good, I guess) His staff seemed to work beautifully and efficiently too.
