Dr. Sterling came highly recommended and during our visit it was quite apparent why. The staff was very attentive on arrival, explaining the expectations and duration of the visit. Dr. Sterling greeted us in a personable manner then explained concussions in lay terms. He made my daughter feel comfortable in his discussions, reviewed the results and the treatment plan. He had a very genuine concern for the best possible solution and made the visit seamless. Bravo to the whole team!
