Specialties

Dr. Steven E Fern has the following 2 specialties

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Great Experience

Very personable, takes his time with you. Doesn't pressure you about the diet and that it's all your fault because of what you eat. Very knowledgeable and seems to want to solve the problem. Explains the next steps.

Very bad experience

Think twice before you see this doctor. His staffs are very rude and unprofessional. They will give you wrong information and over-charge you!I had a Colonoscopy procedure done by this doctor. Before the procedure, I gave my insurance information (both primary and secondary) to the staff and asked them to check how much money I need to pay out of pocket. The staff told me, you do NOT need to pay anything. The insurance companies will cover everything. One month later, I was over-charged over $700 for everything (Endoscopy, Anesthesiology, and lab tests). Its a disaster to talk to the staffs and impossible to talk to the doctor.

One Star

This office staff is rude on a good day. They have no patient communication skills at all. They don't relay messages. I had to ask 5 times to have Dr Fern call me back and he never did. And then misdiagnosed my daughter's problem. I will never set foot in this office again.
