Excellent Doctor!

Dr. Stern resolved my hemorrhoid issue that I had been dealing with for many many years. He is very knowledgeable, great communication skills, and actually takes the time to listen to your history/medical issues. Unlike a previous Dr. who recommended surgery, Dr Stern recommended "banding" and I went with his expert judgement. It took just one "banding" and all my issues have been resolved!! I can't thank Dr. Stern enough for correcting the issue I had been dealing with for years!

Highly Recommend Dr. Lawrence Stern and Dr. York

I developed a large abscess on my right buttock and was in much pain. Being a former patient of Dr. Lawrence Stern, I telephoned his office in the morning and was cordially and empathetically greeted by his staff. I was accommodiated with an appointment to see Dr. Lawrence Stern and Dr. York by 11:15 a.m. the same morning. I spent only 5 minutes waiting in the office. Dr. Lawrence Stern and Dr. York took care of my situation right away. All of the staff and Dr.'s at this office are very efficient and professional and I would highly recommend them because of my past and present experience. Their level of service and customer care is "consistently" high.
