Ratings for Dr. Fernando Stern
Unprofessional behaviors. Confrontational. His clinical skills are subpar. Essentially a pill pusher. Went to him for depression and anxiety. Was told I was manipulating my family but that I would not be able to manipulate him. He was angry and accusatory. I highly discourage use of the physician.
I read the poor reviews about Dr. Stern but needed a psychiatrist appointment ASAP. Dr. Stern told me that I could not fight my family history of anxiety using my own methods (i.e., coping skills such as deep breathing, mindfulness, etc.). As a resilient, educated consumer, I know that I can do this and am doing so. Additionally, Dr. Stern would often ask me about my s*x life ( presumably to assess for side effects of my antidepressant medication). However, my gut told me that his questions came from a place of voyeristic pleasure and for his own personal knowledge. The icing on the cake was yesterday, when he asked if my fiancé was "going to make an honest woman out of me". I consider this to be unprofessional conduct, a violation of boundaries, and sexual harassment. When I didn't answer him, he told me I was an "extremely anxious woman" who likely could not be effective at my job. I'm looking forward to never being subject to Dr. Stern's sexual harassment again. I am also considering reporting his misconduct to the medical ethics board.
This guy is a complete hack. Told me "I fucked up my life" and refused to provide meds. Stay away. His staff also lied about his hospital credentials, worried about what I might say. I will be filing a complaint with the AMA and am strongly considering a lawsuit for malpractice.
