Specialties

Dr. Mark S Stern has the following 3 specialties

  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • 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.

  • Cardiology

    Cardiologists are doctors who specialize in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of conditions related to the heart and blood vessels.
    A patient may be referred to a cardiologist if he experiences symptoms like chest pains, shortness of breath, dizziness, or high blood pressure. The physician will then evaluate your symptoms, take your health and family history and your weight. The cardiologist may order additional diagnostic tests, such as an echocardiogram, X-ray or blood tests. If necessary, the cardiologist may also call for a cardiac catheterization - a procedure in which a small tube is inserted into or near the heart that can take pictures of the heart's activity, or relieve blockage.
    Once determining whether there is a heart condition, a cardiologist will treat a patient through cholesterol management, cardiac rehabilitation, and fitness. If surgical intervention is required, like open-heart surgery, a cardiologist will make that determination, but a cardiothoracic surgeon will perform the procedure.

straight forward

they're remodeling the office which explains part of the wait- I have seen him twice now and while he is not the most fun guy , he is straight forward in his discussions , he will be performing a couple of procedures on me in the next couple of months , and his manner to me is professional & straight forward which builds confidence in him. and his socks - tell you what - that shows me he does have a sense of humor and a good outlook on life.

If I could-I'd rate Dr. Mark Stern 5 minus stars!

Dr. Stern may be a good heart doctor, but if he only knew how he comes across to the everyday person. he might think twice about his manner with his patients. I had to wait an hour to see him for the first and again the second consult - is my time not worth anything?? His manner and "I am God attitude" really turns people off. Instead of ever saying one thing nice about the five pounds I've lost in 7 weeks and the fact I've joined a gym went right over his head-not an encourageing word. This man needed to retire 10 years ago! AND PLEASE LOSE THE SOX!!!
