Dr. David P Stearnes has the following 1 specialty
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

I've seen this Dr. twice. He seems to say all the right things but does not follow up on his promises. I asked him several questions that he did not know the answer to. He was going to research it and get back to me with a plan. None of this ever happened. He doesn't really seem concerned with harder cases or challenges. If you are not dealing with some illness that is completely obvious Dr. Stearnes is not for you. He does not want to take the time to learn about anything new. Very disappointing. I'm sure if no work is involved on his part, he would be more than willing to prescribe a medication and get you out of the office. One last thing, his nurse is not very personable at all. Seemed to have a poor attitude on both visits. I'm still searching for a competent Dr. that can get to the root of the issue.
Dr. Stearnes is an excellent doctor. I lost my physician due to cancer a few years ago and was having problems finding the "right" one. My previous doctor was the best in the world. I am a nurse and went to a few that just didn't feel right. Dr. Stearnes is a carbon copy of my previous physician. VERY caring and takes the time to explain options along with making sure that you are comfortable with the treatment plan. He help you understand that the ball game is in your park. Thank you Dr. Stearnes for being a great provider!
