What our patients are saying

  • Dr. Steren is the best possible surgeon that you can find in this area. He is super knowledgeable and calm. My memory was blurred about the surgery, and it was not until my post-op that I got the surgery notes and could fully appreciate the complex procedures Dr. Steren and his team performed. They saved my life! I am sincerely grateful for the experience with Dr. Steren’ team, and would recommend anyone with similar medical concerns.

  • Dr. Steren was recommended by my friend and her sister who both had myomectomies performed by Dr. Steren, and I am really glad that I had a surgery with Dr. Steren. He is really kind, knowledgeable and has great bedside manner. He is a great surgeon! I had Da Vinci assisted laparoscopic myomectomy for 9 cm fibroid. My surgery went really well, and my recovery was quick and painless. Thank you Dr. Steren and your team!!!

    As a healthcare professional being a patient is always a humbling experience. Knowing all the possible negative outcome of surgery was at times a little overwhelming for me. After many years of contemplating whether I should have a second surgery for my large fibroids, I was referred to see Dr Steren. After reviewing my options, I left the plan we made with Dr. Steren was the right one for me. Dr Steren is very kind, respectful, skilled and understanding person. His calm demeanor made me feel at ease, as I was very anxious on our first pre op consultation. I felt very supported and comfortable being in his care. My surgery was very successful even with all the scar tissues from prior surgery. I am truly grateful and want to thank Dr Steren and his entire team for my care. God bless you all.

  • Receiving a referral to an oncologist for an ovarian tumor was one of the most terrifying experiences I’ve ever had. After speaking with Dr. Steren, however, my fears were greatly allayed. To say he has a wonderful bedside manner would be an understatement. He took the time to carefully listen to my concerns and explain to me in layperson terms how a borderline tumor differed from an invasive cancer in order to put my fears to rest. I believe that Dr. Steren and his entire team at Women’s Health Specialists went above and beyond to quickly restore my health and treat me with care before, during and after my surgery.
