"I am currently in my late 20's. It turns out, I have seen Alyse Stern for medical consultations twice in my life. I'll try to summarize each of the experiences below. The first time was 15+ years ago, and the second time was about two years ago. Both times were very unpleasant experiences. When I was a child, I injured my ankle playing sports. Naturally, I went into the practice to see the first physician available, because my ankle was in very bad shape. It was severely inflamed, very purple/blue, and I could not put any weight on it; so it seemed obvious to me that something was wrong (or at least it was worse than other mild ankle sprains I had had previously). After meeting with Dr. Stern, she told my mother that it was just a mind sprain, and that I should be fine in about two weeks. After a few more days, the color got worse, so we decided to see an ortho specialist. Sure enough, the specialist told me that it was a very severe, grade 3, high ankle sprain, with small fractures ...
in the fibula, and that it needed to be immobilized immediately. He then proceeded to wrap it in a cast for 6 weeks. My mother and I were extremely frustrated at the treatment given to me by Dr. Stern. She downplayed my pain and concerns very quickly, and incorrectly diagnosed my ankle. Fast-forward 10+ years to the late 2010's. It had been a few years since I had a physical, and I had a few concerns about some things that had popped up with me. So I figured it was time for a physical, and I decided to pick the first doctor that was available for the fastest appointment. Lucky me, I had my second encounter with Dr. Stern. Funny enough, because it had been over a decade, I had completely forgotten about the original experience; so for all I knew, this was my first time meeting this Dr. Stern. Sure enough, I had another, very unpleasant experience. Every concern I would raise about something I had been worried about, she would stop me very quickly, and completely dismiss my concern. I felt very unheard, and I felt like she didn't care about anything I said. It really rubbed me the wrong way. Later in the day, my mother called me, so I happened to let her know about the experience. After I recalled the doctor's name, my mother immediately recognized it, and reminded me about what a horrible experience I had had when I was younger with the ankle injury. At that point, I had a huge flashback, and couldn't believe that in my entire life, I had only had two strongly negative experiences with a physician. And sure enough, they were both from the same person. I'm not a vindictive person, and I never write bad reviews, because I like to give people the benefit of the doubt. But in circumstances like this, I couldn't let it slide. If you're looking for a compassionate doctor that listens to you and wants to help you with your medical issues, look elsewhere. "
