    An ophthalmologist has the training to do much more than just prescribe glasses. They are physicians specially trained to diagnose and treat disorders of the eyes and vision.

Thankful to have a doctor who could save my vision

I have been very blessed to have Dr. Sternberg as my eye surgeon for 20+ years. I followed him from Emory (ATL) to Vanderbilt. I wouldn't see any other doctor for my retina issues. If it wasn't for his unbelievable knowledge and abilities, I would be totally blind today. I can't thank this doctor enough for giving me the ability to see.

I iam so lucky to be able to see Dr. Sternberg . . . he is a busy doctor. You can tell by the way all the other nurses, technicians etc, that they repect his knowledge and treatment of his patients. He might not be a chit chatty doctor, but knows his field in macular degeneration.

This Dr. has the WORST and most arrogant manner I have ever had the misfortune of visiting. I know specialists can be full of themselves, but to pay over $600.00 and be treated so rudely by this Dr. is unacceptable. I would never see him again.
