Dr. Sterling conducts careful analysis of symptoms, communicates with me as a patient in clear English, rather than overly technical terms, and provides good, practical medical advice, even if not all the symptoms can be rectified easily.

Dr.Sterling provided me with multiple treatment options and explained each one. Although a definitive diagnosis was not able to be concluded he is clearly taking steps to reach a definitive diagnosis as soon as possible.
