Patient Reviews
Jun 24, 2024
Was referred to Dr Stern by my GI for hemorrhoids. The GI tried banding my hemorrhoids 3 times but I kept having bleeding and horrible horrible pain. It was like a knife was ripping through me when I used the bathroom. I saw Dr. Stern. He looked and told me it wasn't my hemorrhoids that were causing the problme. It was a fissure in the area. He put me on a special med that I had to get at a compound pharmacy. I saw him back in a month and my pain was gone and the bleeding gone. I had been dealing with this for months and months and I was miserable. In a month he got rid of all my symptoms and didn't even do a procedure on me. Amazing!
