Mr. Stern was very nice and polite and took time to question me on my health. He did a thorough review of my chart to ensure my safety during surgery. The only down side to this visit was that it seemed to be something that could have been done during my visit with the surgeon that I had already paid for.

I went with pain in my right lung, quite a bit of pain. He ordered chest xray and a gallbladder test, as no other problem showed, he diagnosed it as plurisy and said if it was not better in a week to return.

I was miserable! The staff got to me quickly and the student helper was very thorough. I liked the doctor very much. First time in a long time that the physician didn\'t rush to the examination. They both seem very concerned about my eyes, and wanted to ease my pain as quickly as possible.

The care provider was very knowledgeable about my symptoms and knew exactly what test to perform. He was very pleasant and professional. He sent my results to me through "My Chart" and was responsive to my questions and made sure I was doing better. He also commented that if there was anything else I needed not to hesitate to give him a call. My condition has greatly improved and I feel much better. it\'s nice that I received a response from the care provider saying that he hoped that I was feeling better and if I needed more assistance, he would be sure to provide me with additional care.
