TOP NOTCH DOCTOR AND SURGEON

I've been a patient of Dr. Sternschein for over fifteen years. Over that period, he's performed a tummy tuck, breast lift, eyelid surgery and a facelift; I've been thrilled with the results (and how long they've lasted). Dr. Sternschein is a trustworthy, knowledgable, skilled and meticulous surgeon. I consider him to be and artist who is in the very top tier of his field. He is honest, caring and reassuring with great bedside manners. He never rushes you and answers as many questions as you can possibly ask with truth and honesty. My son and daughter have had surgery with him and also hold him in the highest regard. I highly recommend him.

One Star

Had a very bad experience. I went for a consultation for removing my spider veins using lazer therapy. First the doctor asked me what my husband did for a living. Then he told me with his nurse as a witness I would need three to five procedures for about $500 each treatment and I would be ready to put my bathing suit in and go to the beach. After three procedures and spending $1500 I told doctor I saw no improvement and I said two more sessions was definitely not going to fix the problem. He looked me straight in the eye and said he never said three to five treatments. His nurse backed him up and said he never said that also. My mother in law was dying of overian cancer and I told him how stressful my life was. He is a crook and a liar.

Exceptional doctor

I had my first appointment with Dr. Sternschein after a dermatologist left me with a hideous facial scar. My initial consult with Dr. Sternschein was comforting and informative, and each visit with him has left me feeling confident and cared for. He assured me that we would work long term to ensure the best cosmetic result. Sure enough, over the past few months, he has guided me with his unwavering patience and exceptional expertise. I strongly encourage anyone considering cosmetic surgeries or procedures to seek out Dr. Sternschein. I am so grateful to have found him, and I wouldn't trust myself in anyone else's hands!
