Dr. Sterling is the most caring, engaging, responsive, cooperative, professional doctor I have ever had in my 75 years on this planet. He is always willing to consider suggestions, takes all symptoms reported into consideration, does not dismiss concerns, addresses any issues you may feel pertinent, and never rushes you when you are with him. If all medical professionals were like Dr. Sterling, there would be fewer patients feeling they were not being heard or cared for adequately, especially senior citizens. I thank the Lord for offering me Dr. Sterling in 2009 when I first got on Medicare. He has truly been a blessing for me. I totally trust him and his expertise.
