Dr. Rishon H Stember has the following 2 specialties
A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.
- Allergy and Immunology
An allergy & immunology specialist is a physician who is specially trained in matters pertaining to chronic and acute allergies, as well as deficiencies of the immune system. The doctor will determine whether an allergy, which attacks our immune system, is present. They'll also determine the cause, whether it be environmental triggers like trees and pollen, food-borne like peanuts and dairy, the venom of insects like bees, or a medication like penicillin.
In addition to determining the allergen causing an immunological response in a patient, the specialist will treat the symptoms caused by the reaction.

I saw Dr. Stember initially because he took my insurance plan. My job changed a few months ago (and my insurance changed) so he no longer accepted my plan. He offered to help me find another psychiatrist in-network with my new plan, but by this point, I had seen firsthand what a uniquely caring, qualified, competent, thorough psychiatrist he is - and there was no way I was willing to switch! I called my new insurance plan and (after some headache) it turns out that I have out of network benefit options so I can just pay Dr. Stember's fees out of pocket and the insurance will reimburse me a part. To be honest, no matter what the reimbursement was - I knew I would stick with Dr. Stember, It is SO rare - ESPECIALLY in psych - to land with a doctor who always has your best interest at heart and goes the extra mile for you. I trust Dr. Stember implicitly, and for my mental health care, this is everything. I feel exceedingly lucky to be treated by him, at any price point.
Dr. Stember is an true gem. He is just the wisest, most knowledgable, intuitive scholar. He is so experienced, so well-read, and at the same time actually so understated about the fact that he knows more than pretty much anyone in this field. He is incredibly kind, earnest, and gentle - he gives so much thought to my case and to my problems and my history - I sometimes feel like I don't even deserve to have such an amazing expert taking such thoughtful and attentive care of me (but maybe there I go with some of that poor self-esteem he's been helping me work on :) He is wonderful. Hands down. I honestly feel like I won the lottery. If there is any way he is taking new patients still, make an appointment. I cannot say enough about how fortunate his patients are to have him.
My whole family is treated by Dr. Stember (we're an allergic bunch!!) I just can't say enough good things about this man. I trust him completely (obviously - or I wouldn't be sending my kids!) He is truly a gem and when we discovered him (referral from a friend), we just couldn't believe our luck. I never question a word he says (which is unusual for my personality) and it is such a relief to feel completely at ease and taken care of by your doctor. He is simply the best.
I was referred to Dr. Stember by my internist after developing complex skin allergies that no one could seem to figure out. I was skeptical at first because I had such a frustrating time trying to get a diagnosis and treatment already. Dr. Stember immediately put me at ease, and his experience and competence was just evident as he evaluated me. He correctly diagnosed me and I am now so relieved (and itch-free!) I refer all my friends to him because you know you will be going to the top of the field.
