Insurance listings are subject to change without prior notice. Please call your physician's office or your health or insurance plan to verify coverage information prior to scheduling your visit or procedure. Not all members participating in contracted networks have "in network" access. In network participation may change from time to time without prior notice. Independent providers (which could include, for example only, anesthesiologists, radiologists, pathologists, emergency medicine physicians, advance practice professionals, and other independent providers of health care services) may deliver part of your care, and such providers may be considered out-of-network on your health and insurance plans even if the Facility may be considered in network. If you desire additional information as to the providers who may be involved in providing your care, you can either ask your treating provider (who may know some of the specialists or groups who could be involved) or you can request a list of Facility-based physician groups by calling the following toll free number: (877) 810-0372. This list is updated annually and is subject to change without prior notice.

Dr. Stern is the Best of the Best! He has been my PCP for approximately 28 years and he is the best PCP I have ever had. He is so personable and he has always made me feel at ease during any kind of exam. He explains everything in layman's terms and shows the utmost care & compassion no matter what the circumstance. He is one of those "one in a million" docs that I feel so very blessed to have as my PCP! Out of 5-Stars as the best, he gets 10 in my book!
