2nd treatment for trigger finger (thumb). Dr Stewart explained the problem and the treatment. (Was not my original Dr). Received cortisone shot. Not to move or scream. I did both!! It was just me. Very gentle. Very professional and very friendly. Thanks Dr Stewart and thank you to Cyndi!

Dr. Stewart is a gentleman and a wonderful Doctor. He is very knowledgeable and attentive to all questions. I would recommend him in a heart beat. I felt so at ease. I worked in the medical field in EMS into ER for numerous years. I have met and worked with many MD ‘s and there are only 3 I respect and trust and Dr. Stewart is one of them.

Dr. Stewart aspirated my wrist ganglia yesterday. It did not hurt at all, and it does not hurt now. Dr. Stewart explained the procedure in detail, alternative procedures and what to expect statistically. He answered all my questions. His staff was SO NICE, especially Marie. Thank you, Dr. Stewart, for seeing me yesterday. I appreciate you fitting me into your schedule. I am glad we could get this done.

I have a thumb trigger finger. Dr. Stewart explained what the condition was and my options. I chose to have a steroid injection. Hopefully it will help. He is a very nice man, loved his assistant and the front desk.

Wonderful. Doctor Stewart has done five hand surgeries on me since 1997. All were 100% successful and with almost no downtime. I am a Technical Writer and wouldn’t have been able to continue working for all of these years without his skill and expertise. Patient and compassionate, he also has an excellent staff.

This is my second year seeing Dr. Stewart. I was treated for trigger thumb on my right hand a year ago. Healed after cortisone injections. Needless to say after x-rays, I am now experiencing trigger thumb on my left hand. I trust Dr. Stewart and his professionalism. Goes without saying, the office staff is friendly and very helpful.

Everyone was friendly and professional. I was seen in a reasonable amount of time. The doctor listened to me and gave me options, but ultimately let me choose the treatment direction I wanted to take. My wrist feels better, for now.

Excellent! He spent considerable time with me, even while running late! Thorough and even contacted the Radiologist who reviewed my MRI to discuss results and request a more detailed exam.

Thorough, and thoughtful. Takes the time to review symptoms and discuss options for treatment even if it means going someplace else. He referred me to UCLA while not local, if you want to get the best result have to go to best places

Dr. Stewart is a seasoned professional in his field. Clear about treatment options and I’m always pleased with the time he takes with me explaining options. Go in with pain that is relieved by cortisone injections at this point. May get surgery on my thumb joint when time permits.

This was my first visit to Dr. Stewart. He was very professional and took the time to explain the problem, cause and possible resolutions. He thoroughly answered my questions. I appreciated that he did not suggest rushing into surgery. We are trying one option and have scheduled a follow up for a month. I highly recommend Dr. Stewart.

My issue was out of his scope of expertise so he referred me to a colleague and set up the appointment for me.
