“Dr. Sterne and his staff are just terrific. They are all accessible, responsive, empathetic and eager to provide assistance. I have had several procedures in the surgical center and several appointments in the office. I can not think of a time where I felt rushed, unwelcome or uneasy about my visit. Can not say enough good things about the entire team - but in particular, Dr. Sterne. He is highly skilled, approachable, generous with his time and quite an effective practitioner. As much as I wish I didn't ever have to see him, because wishes do not always come true - I am very glad he is my doctor!”
