Dr Sterling was incredibly kind and professional,he listened to my symptoms attentively and asked many questions. while he examined me for back pain he watched my reaction to certain positions and immediately told me his concerns and possible diagnosis. An MRI confirmed, exactly, Dr. Sterling\'s assessment; amazing!

Dr. Sterling was very empathetic towards me and my pain. He did an excellent job explaining my condition and his recommendations. I felt heard and not rushed. He also treated my daughter for another condition last year and we were very impressed by his treatment. That is why I made my appointment to see Dr. Sterling. I will definitely return and recommend friends and family to his practice.

Dr. Sterling is an Olympic team doctor - enough said. But even for our "regular athlete" patient, Dr. Sterling impresses me with his thorough explanations and attentiveness. I\'m embarrassed to be answering this question.

Dr Sterling always takes the time to listen and he asks clarifying questions that let me know he heard me. He then offers possible etiologies of my issue and possible plans of action. I believe he is truly a CARE provider.
