My son (24) had surgery to remove a pilonidal cyst in 2017 at an HMO which was a nightmare from the beginning. It had taken four months to properly diagnose the problem, and the surgeon there had stapled the site of the removed cyst which was terribly painful when removed; and my son had an open wound for months, which sent his spirits spiraling down.
This was unacceptable, so I went on the internet and found Dr. Sternberg—what a blessing! Within days of the surgery in 2018, my son’s wound and spirits were well on their way to being healed. And within a month, my son was back at work, school, and working out at the gym. We got our son back.
Thank you, Dr. Sternberg and your professional and empathetic and helpful staff! It’s coming up on two years since the surgery and my son has had no problems with the surgery site, except a slight scar. Considering how mangled the wound was, that’s a small price to pay for this surgery. We will be forever grateful for finding Dr. Sternberg, and certainly count him in our blessings this holiday season.
