At age 80+, if I had another life to live, I'd like to come back to train as a Nurse Practitioner on the next go-round (instead of being a school teacher, because I'm tired of children). If so, then I would want to be mentored by Dr. Anthony Sterling. Not only is Dr. Sterling a superb PCP, but I also admire greatly the way he mentors his trainees. Dr. Sterling is a natural born educator, in addition to being a dedicated healer. BS&W is very lucky to have him. And I hope he never retires!

Dr. Sterling is one in a million! His personal attention & care are second to none. He has been our primary care physician for 20 years and we couldn't be happier. Even after all the years, he still takes the time needed to address the concerns at hand. He is very knowledgeable about many different areas in medicine & seems open minded to discuss alternative options for wellness & healing. He's quick to give resources & encourages us to do our homework as well. Throughout the years, the Scott & White system had a real problem with quality control & customer service. We are VERY pleased with our service since Baylor took over. Thank you for caring enough for your patients to have listened to the complaints & have fixed the problems. There are many choices out there these days, but it's doctors like Jim Sterling & quality customer service that keeps us loyal to S&W. Thank you!
