this was my first time seeing Dr Stern and I really appreciate the way he treated me. being Saturday, I didn't think anything could really be done till Monday. I was so pleased to see that they do have employees that can check your urine and take x-rays, since that is what I had to have. Dr Stern even took time to go over the X-rays with me. He was very courteous and friendly but most of all concerned why I felt the way I was feeling. Thank you Dr Stern.
