Ratings for Dr. Robert M. Stern
I have worked with Dr. Stern for close to 20 years. I worked with him in the hospital setting as well as outpatient. He is the first doctor who proved me wrong. I didn't believe I could stay out of the hospital with just outpatient treatment, but I have done just that since I started working with him outpatient about 14 years ago. Dr. Stern is kind, compassionate, caring, and cautious with medication. He is always present and attentive to me in my appointments and always was when I was in the hospital. He readily acknowledges his mistakes and he has sincerely changed his behavior to make me more comfortable in my therapy. He's also on the optimistic side, which is not true of all therapists. After all these years, he is still right on time for our appointments. Dr. Stern is protective of his patients, in a good way.
I have known Dr. Stern for over 20 years and he has been a god send to me. He has helped me and my family through many tough situations & for that I am truly grateful. Without him I don't know where I would be right now. He is always there when I need him, always just a phone call or email away. He is very patient, understanding & caring to my problems. I'm very glad to have met him all those years ago and to still have him today.
I was exceedingly lucky to be referred to North 5 (Emerson Hospital’s Inpatient Psychiatric Unit) and assigned to Dr. Stern. He’s low-key, listened well, and was empathetic. It was obvious that the staff thinks the world of him. (Want to find out if a doctor’s good? Observe the staff’s attitude to him/her.) I was discharged two weeks ago, and while I did want to go home, I so didn’t want to leave North 5 that it was all I could do to prevent myself from crying. It’s clean, the nurses and social workers are great, the therapy and personal growth groups get an A+, and the food was good. I had a joke with myself that I was in a spa.
DR. Stern IS AN EXCELLANT *INPATIENT PSYCH.(M.D.) He has Keen insight and intellect on the human psyche, mental illness, and dual diag. His Bedside manner is a little rough but he makes up for this with his LONG HOURS, FULL ATTENTION, and follow-up. He Believes that Medication should "assist" not "numb" the patient so the patient can actually feel what he/she is going through/ working on...W/O being in TOO MUCH STRESS or OVERWHELMING Situations. DR. Stern EXPECTS WORK, but you'll feel it's worth it.*BIG ADVOCATE OF: H.I.P.P.A. , and NO Personal contact in the inpatient setting/ Psychichiatrist/ patient relationship. CLEAR Boundries. AND YET HAS A SENSE OF HUMOR! Non-threatening, and community- oriented. Yet, I think his name says alittle bit about him when he gets a pt. in his head he would like you to realize- He is Stern! If U need to be admitted Inpatient for behavorial reasons, Emerson is a good place to go. NO GARUNTEE U"LL GET HIM AS M.D. but evry M.D. there r v. knowledgable
