Specialties

Dr. Leonard Stern has the following 2 specialties

  • Nephrology

    A nephrologist is a physician who is specially trained to diagnose and treat conditions affecting the kidneys or renal system.
    A nephrologist will determine through urine analysis, blood test, X-ray, sonogram, or kidney biopsy how well the kidneys are functioning and will then prescribe a special diet and exercise program, medication or dialysis - a process by which a machine filters the blood when the kidney is no longer capable of doing so.

  • 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.

Routine 2 to 4 hour wait. Then seems caring, but...

The first time I saw Dr. Stern the wait was over 2 hours. His secretary said that was normal for him. The second time the wait was nearly four hours. I expressed some outrage at this to his different secretary that day, and she later complained to him about in. In his response to my primary care doctor he described me as having been "exceedingly rude" and joked that he would see me again if his secretary allowed it. He noted that neither my wife nor I had not complained at all to him, and ridiculed me to my PCP.He spent the one hour session - if he does 25 a day as noted in his description - i admit he did not rush us - he proceeded to tell me in detail the exact manner of my inevitable decline and death from kidney disease. (I had some damage due to chemotherapy from cancer). The cancer is cured - thank God, but his prediction was anything but accurate. Now, 5 years later, I have remained with a creatinine of 1.5 and very stable... his prediction of my demise seems grossly overstated.He seems like a nice, but poorly organized researcher who also practices, and he seems never be on time. He also described my normal weight (in fact always considered this, half-marathon walking exersize loving wife as overweight (155 lbs/ 5'6"/ 55 years of age) in his letter to the PCP. Maybe he forgot what she looked like as she sat in front of him.Good data mining researcher and time unconscious with patients as he may be, it was traumatizing hearing his predictions of doom (which did not turn out despite my never seeing him again), and his taking his secretary's hearsay opinion that I was "exceedingly rude" and joking about it to my new PCP belies the depth of his apparently caring (albeit using scare techniques) manner.Not everyone who seems kind really is, and not every smart professor is correct.Thank God. Find someone else.
