Terrible. Insisted I had a blood clot based on how my foot looked (like it always does), and couldn't do the most basic of procedures in his office (I can't have skin flying in here). Had to go to another specialist who made it very clear that OF COURSE I didn't have a blood clot. Waste of time.

I have been Dr. Stern’s patient for almost two decades, and I am extremely happy with the quality of his medical care. Dr. Stern is thorough, understanding, and extremely knowledgeable. He has provided me with orthotics and performed a number of treatments over the years. I would recommend Dr. Stern to anyone, and I am confident that they would receive the highest level of care and very sound medical advice.

My experience with Dr. Stern was fantastic. Loved his humor and his knowledge is impeccable! I forgot to tell him about an injury that I had with my ankle and he immediately caught that saying.. "Are you testing me?" He already knew I forgot to tell him something in regards to my ankle injury! just.. amazing!

My experience was very similar to the negative reviews before. I would never go back - late, arrogant, time-wasting, not focused on listening to the patient. I had no direction on dealing with my issue after an expensive appointment. There are many choices in Vancouver - go elsewhere.

I had a fantastic experience with Dr. Stern and his staff. Dr Stern took his time answering all my questions and was very understanding and professional. His assistant, Ramona, was super helpful. My insurance policies through work were in a bit of a complicated situation. She was able to help me sort them out and accommodated all my requests. The overall experience and service were second to none and I speak from experience as I have seen other podiatrists in Vancouver. I got 3 pairs of orthotics made a few weeks ago and I am looking forward to picking them up tomorrow.

This man loves himself too much! He humour is dry. He’s never on time and wastes a lot of time talking about himself. I don’t recommend him and won’t continue with the follow ups anymore. Can’t stand the man

Arrogant. He wasn't sure whether I had a corn or a plantar wart. Suggested I would have to come in again when it grew back (after he drew blood shaving it down) to see if he could dagnose it properly. I call BS on that, sounded like he just wanted to book an unnecessary visit. He even suggested surgery in the future! I assure you I will never need surgery for the smallest corns in the universe. Condescension should not be confused with dry humour. The guy is way too cocky for his own good.
