Fantastic pediatrician

I am a foster parent and have taken multiple babies to this office and seen several different doctors. All of them are very good, but Dr. Sternfeld is our favorite. She listens to everything we have to say and doesn't dismiss any of it as unimportant. When something isn't a cause for worry, she explains why. She always explains what's she looking for, what indications she sees (or doesn't see), and what she's going to recommend/prescribe and why. She explains things very clearly without being condescending. She clearly values parental reporting, saying that we know our babies best, so if we think there's something wrong, we're probably right. She also knows Medi-Cal and WIC like the back of her hand, which is a huge help for us. When biological parents have attended appointments with her, she has deftly handled the potentially fraught situation, giving equal attention to everyone in the room, making sure that everyone understands what she's saying, and affording everyone equal respect. I enjoy having her on my "team" of people taking care of babies, and I have complete trust in her medical skills. This pediatric care group is very busy, so we do usually wait 15-30 minutes (waiting room + exam room), but everyone on staff is courteous, knowledgeable, and friendly, the space is clean and pleasant, and the nurses are all fantastic. Also, they are affiliated with Rady Children's Hospital, so when our babies have needed specialists or hospitalization, all the information transfers seamlessly. The care we get is so good that we don't mind waiting a bit!

Momof2inEscondido

Dr. Sternfeld is the BEST doctor we have ever had for our oldest daughter (12 years) and our youngest daughter (11 months). She listens and explains things to us, she is so kind and excellent with the kids. We LOVE this doctor!!! Highly recommended. We used to have Kaiser for many years and had many different doctors. After switching to Radys Childrens Hospital in Escondido and getting Dr. Sterfeld we know the difference between a bad doctor and an EXCELLENT doctor.
