Please do not use this doctor. Her staff is rude. I felt uncomfortable, her staff overheard me talking to my friend about it. As a result, her staff began being very rude to me. In my 7th month, her nurse began arguing with me. Dr. Stern told me to find another doctor. I am so upset. Dr. Stern did not care. I got another OBGYN, within my second visit the new Doctor picked up that something was wrong. When they delivered me, my son had 3 knots in the cord and it was wrapped around his neck 3 times. My son made it. Thank God to my new doctor. It was just disheartening that Dr. Stern never pick up on it. DO NOT use her. In research I saw she had a malpractice suit, beware! Please!

I was pregnant with my second child and Dr. Stern did not pick up on the fact that there were 3 knots in the cord and it was wrapped around his neck 3 times. I always felt something was wrong. I was going through my own stress at home /life. I had a lost of my self confidence because of everything. I did not truly trust myself. In the end, I believe Dr. Stern's staff overheard me talking about my worries and she through it back in my face. Her nurse beginning calling me crazy and Dr. Stern did nothing about it. She asked me to find another doctor in my third trimester. I was upset because I did not think I would find another doctor. Dr. Stern did not care. I found another doctor who discovered everything. It was a blessing that this happen because if Dr. Stern did not care about me she would not care about my baby. I learned many lessons. Trust you instincts, doctor office walls are thin-never talk about your feelings-especially with an in courteous staff. In the end my son is fine. I just want everyone to know do not trust this doctor.

Re: Dr. Stern and her staff

I'm so laughing at the Anonymous writer and her comments. I have to say that I've known Dr. Stern since 1978 and her practice of making people wait and wait and wait has never changed. It's been like that for over 30 years. Unfortunately, you can't teach an old dog new tricks. She will ALWAYS have people's what doctors do. Unfortunately, you have to alot an enormous amount of time for one of her visits....perhaps the whole day? LOL Dr. Stern is a fabulous gyno and her reputation exceeds her. I was recommended to her back in 1978 for her wonderful work and although she comes across as a little snobbish....that's not what she intends to's just her demeanor and she means no harm at all. You get the best OB/GYN with her and i wouldn't give it up for anything. I will wait and I will be prepared to do so each and visit. Her staff, on the other hand, needs a smack in the head. The receptionist has GOT TO GO! She is socially inept and needs to be told as much. Get a new receptionist and all is going to great! I hope Dr. Stern reads this and listens to us all about the little twit at the front desk. She is the only problem with the practice. Otherwise, Dr. Stern is extremely knowledgeable. BTW, just because a doctor has or had a medical practice suit against them does not mean that they did somethign wrong. Most of medical malpractice cases are meritless and force doctors to settle the case monetarily rather than being scruitinized in a court of law. It could be more costly to try to litigate rather than settlle. So, let's be reasonable about this people.
