Specialties

Dr. Michael R Stern has the following 1 specialty

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

My favorite doctor in the practice

Dr stern is wonderful. He takes the time to fully explain everything and asks lots of questions to fully understand what's going on. I've never felt rushed and he genuinely seems interested in my children and their well being

My child saw Dr. Stern during a period of extreme pain. Instead of being compassionate and caring Dr. Stern was dismissive and even suggested child was faking pain. While I wish he was right, my child ended up needing several months of treatment after being properly diagnosed by a specialist. Thankfully we sought a second opinion and our child received the treatment needed and had a full recovery.
