Specialties

Dr. Sophia A Sterner has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • Hospitalist

    Hospitalists are physicians who specialize in the care of patients in the hospital. The majority of hospitalists are board-certified internists and have completed the same training as other internal medicine doctors including medical school, residency and board certification examination.
    Hospitalist activities include patient care, teaching, research, and leadership related to hospital care. They have more expertise in caring for complicated hospitalized patients on a daily basis since, unlike other specialists or primary care doctors, they spend most of their day in the hospital.
    They often coordinate the care of their patients and act as the central point of communication among the different doctors and nurses involved in the patient's care. They are also the main physician for family members to contact for updates on a loved one.

Piano Teachers opinion

While my son Tyler was an inpatient at University Hospital in San Antonio, Texas Dr. Sterner attended to his needs and saw to it that he was cared for in a loving, kind manner in what was a stressful time for our family. She carefully weighed the medical needs of my son with the objective view of our whole families needs. Staying in the hospital proved to be a trying time for my son because he was seperated from his older six year old brother but with Dr. Sterner in our corner we were able to nurse my son to health and return home to be a family over Christmas. We are pleased with her compassion, her diligence, and her professional manner in which she treated our family. She has a commanding lead over the medical residents and students and nursing staff and is an exceptional leader. We will definitley ask for her to be our Dr again if ever we do have to return to the hospital but hopefully we won't have to go back as an inpatient again. We will still ask to see her on an outpatient basis.
