My experience with Dr. Dean S. Stern has left me with a permanent disability and severe arthritis in my foot. While his bedside mannerism was kind, friendly and quite comical; my personal experience is that Dean S. Stern lacks professionalism when it comes to honest communication with his patients. Dean S. Stern input a Subtalar MBA Implant into my foot to repair Plantar Fasciitis. A few months after the surgical procedure, I began experiencing unbearable pain. Dean S. Stern had me to repeatedly return to his office for additional x-rays. Around the 3-4 re-visit for the same ongoing pain…Dean S. Stern mounted the x-ray and said he needed to step out of the office for a moment. Next, income his associate who then looked at the x-ray and said “I am sorry to say, but the MBA Implant has come out and it is now laying on bone which is causing the pain you are experiencing. There I was, baffled as to why Dean S. Stern did not tell me the truth about the x-ray results. Instead, Dean S. Stern wasted my time and repeatedly collected from my insurance company when he made the choice to not convey the findings of my x-ray with me. What type of physician would do that to a patient? Why did Dean S. Stern display such a bullying behavior and get his associate to tell me the truth about the failed procedure he, himself had performed. Did Dean S. Stern think that I would disappear and he could avoid telling me the truth? Fact is, I trusted Dean S. Stern and could not imagine him withholding such important information from me….HIS patient. As you see, my respect for Dean S. Stern is so low that I cannot recognize him title “Dr.” I can’t believe Dean S. Stern is still practicing medicine with such a deceitful character. I really should have contacted an attorney, especially due to the permanent disability Dean S. Stern has caused me. Sincerely, I Would NEVER Refer Dean S. Stern To Anyone

Dr. Stern is extremely thorough, patient, polite and kind. He is also very intelligent and takes the time to make sure you also understand what is going on. It is rare to find a doctor that is so smart and confident that can still relate to his patients and has such great bedside manner. I would absolutely reccomend Dr. Stern to anyone.
