It's really help
5 star across the board. Pilo expert.
Dr. Sternberg is wonderfully efficient, warm, cheerful and listens well and compassionately. I have seen him more than once and recommend him without reservation. He's great.
The doctor and his staff are always very nice and friendly. The doctor's skills are superb. He only spent 30 mins to find my fistula and operate on it, which my last surgeon failed to find for the past entire year! I just thank him so much.
