Verified Patient Reviews
Pleasant, right to the point, professional and I am glad I came.
Like most doctors she is pressed for time, so she gets to the point and reviews what records I brought with me. She was professional and efficient.
She was wonderful. She reviewed my test results with me explaining what they meant in an easy approachable way.
She is nice and very caring
She was wonderful I thin was the first time I feel very confortable ...yes I recommend to the doctor.
Very professional and thorough. Tests were done on site which was convenient. Overall very pleased with my visit.

Dr. Sterling is one of NYC finest physicians. 10 STARS
Very nice professional office. I was greeted by Gina who registered me and had me complete the required new patient forms. Her demeanor is outstanding - she is a real gem! Super willing to assist. I was called into an exam room before I completed 20% of my forms. Amanda, nurse tech (sorry if I have your degree incorrect!) she is super efficient and friendly. Everyone made me feel very at ease and was extremely attentive. More medical offices need to pay attention to how this office runs. Thank you all - Craig
Dr Sterling really took time to answer my questions. She is very knowledgeable and I didn't feel like I was being rushed.
Very caring, knowledgeable, helpful, understanding, attentive, punctual and thorough. Would definitely recommend.
Excellent doctor and always very helpful
Very thorough, pleasant, intuitive.
The visit was great. She asked the right questions. I did wait 75 minutes to be seen. And the whole thing took me 2 hrs 15 minutes to complete.
Dr. Sterling was professional and friendly. Didn't rush you out of the office like many mds today do. She took time to discuss my concerns and gave me her opinion based on facts. She was very efficient and knew my medical history via the Concorde Medical Group computer system. Highly recommended.
Even though the office was very busy, Dr. Sterling spent a significant amount of time with me answering my questions and recommending options for my particular situation. She is calm, professional and treated me with respect. Highly recommended.
Very knowledgeable + professional
very thorough and easy to talk to.
Extremely disappointed with the wait time. I showed up early as requested and the staff forgot I was there after placing me in a waiting room. Was completely unacceptable. Dr. Sterling in her own right was very pleasant and professional, but the fact I had to wait so long unnecessarily will lead me to go elsewhere next time.
she was professional and thorough
She was excellent, very kind and professional. I am very glad that I found her and would highly recommend her.
Very kind and thorough.
as an avid gardener, i've seen quite a few doctors over many years for lyme. more ticks every year! fortunately i've always been treated successfully. however dr sterling is the most informed, most up-to-date and best doctor i have ever encountered regarding lyme disease. although not recommended, i delayed my visit just so i could get an appt with her first availability.
All went smoothly - Excellent support staff as well.
Overall, extremely disappointed in my visit with Dr. Sterling. I came to her after having unexplained symptoms for months, and she didn't even examine me or run any tests... honestly a huge waste of my time. Also, the nurse that brought me into the room wrote down my weight, height, etc. on her hand which I found very odd and unprofessional. I am looking for a doctor who cares about finding the cause of my health issues, and Dr. Sterling is not that doctor.
Not very warm, but efficient
She is very patient and personal. Easy to talk to.
Truly a terrible doctor. Avoid. Avoid. Avoid.
Horrible! My appointment was already rescheduled and then when I walked in, I was informed they were running more than an hour behind. Why didn't anyone call me?! Ridiculous.
Perfect first trip to the Doctor. Dr. Sterling was prompt, efficient, responsive and all around impressive. She really listened and didn't waste my time or order a bunch of random tests. Everyone in the office was friendly and helpful and I was in and out in under an hour. Glad I found this place.
Wait Time should be better--was told there was limited space and manpower, but those constraints are really not the patient's problem. The wait also defeats the point of ZocDoc--reliability.
She has a great bedside manerism. I would visit her again.
Dr. Sterling was pretty exceptional. I have a difficult and involved case. She took a great amount of time, listened amazingly well gave a very enlightened perspective on my case. I'm very impressed with her. One of the top doctors I've seen. My highest recommendation.
Although the doctor is very good, I probably do not recommend a visit because: 1. bad customer service. Difficult to talk to the staff 2. suspicious records tracking. I understand privacy policies do not apply to them; still Its hassle to get your own test results 3. the office forces you to use their Internet site which probably is to traffic patient information after charging your credit card
very knowledgeable doctor
Dr. Stephanie Sterling is very patient as she listened to all my questions. She answered all my questions and made sure that I was comfortable. She is very compassionate because she took the time to listen to me talk about my mom who died from cancer and I really appreciate her for that.
Dr. Sterling is attentive, kind, and totally professional. I felt that she understood me and answered all of my questions thoroughly and patiently. I will definitely see her again and I would highly recommend her.
I found Dr. Sterling to be extremely easy to talk to, she listened attentively and asked the appropriate questions. She was extremely thorough and professional. I'd recommend her to anyone.
She was very knowledgeable, answered all my questions without any hesitation.
She is very professional. Does not order unnecessary tests. And spends considerable time and research to find the best course of treatment. Very impressed.
Her knowledge is impeccable. She is smart, friendly and I felt comfortable discussing anything with her I would highly recommend her
she is very informative, kind and professional
Very courteous and helpful extremely professional!
Dr. Sterling is great! The nurses and the clerks are not very helpful though. The wait times are usually quite long and I often have to ask for things that should be customary, like a cotton swab to stem the bleeding after having blood drawn. Dr. Sterling is such a helpful and nice physician that I still go here despite the rest of the staff.
A very knowledgable and approachable doctor. Filled me with all of the information I needed and was happy to answer any questions. Very reassuring. Highly reccomned.
Dr. Sterling's staff was very welcoming and prompt to assist me. Dr. Sterling herself was extremely diligent - I am going to be traveling in Africa for two weeks - she made sure I was prepared and gave me additional tips and information she thought I might need in a print out. I highly recommend her.
"Wait" says 3 stars only because that's ZocDoc's rank for waiting 35 min. It becomes clear why you wait for 35 minutes when you get exactly as much time with her as you need. Dr. Sterling is attentive, well-informed, very considerate, and an all-around great doctor. Highly recommend.
smart, calm, caring. what more could you ask for? oh, and super nice. thrilled to have found her. fantastic.
The office is large and very efficient. Their medical records are all electronic, which is good, but almost to a fault. They use smart phones and take calls and answer messages while seeing patients, which I didn't like at all.
Very knowledgable and helpful for HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis (PReP)
She was really nice knowledgable and asked be before doing things she new my insurance would not cover.
It was a good start, I still have to know her.
I think she is a very knowledgable doctor who has genuine compassion and concern for here patients
I went for a second opinion and she confirmed everything from another doctor. She gave me confidence that my health condition will improve and if needed I can call, to let her know if anu other problems arise.
She is very knowledgable and easy to understand
Stephanie was a wonderful and patient physician. She was very knowledgeable in the area of travel medicine and was able to tell me everything I needed to know as well as provide additional resources. I highly recommend her.
Dr Sterling is a caring doctor that answered all my questions and gave me the necessary immunizations. The wait time to be seen is not so good though. But I would wait to see Dr Sterling any day.
Dr. Sterling and her staff is very professional and helpful. They show care and concern for the patient.
From the moment I entered the office, everyone was pleasant and informative. Dr. Sterling is very knowledgeable and was extremely patient as I had a number of questions for her during my visit. I would recommend her without hesitation.
She was great. Very knowledgeable, delivers information to the point but with some interesting dark humor.
Dr. Stephanie Sterling is an excellent Dr. She is very knowledgeable in her area .She answered all my questions concerns in a very professional matter. She has a great bedside manner. I recommend her highly.
Too busy teaching to care for patients and not very experienced
Very professional, very informative, very sensitive to my concerns.
Very knowledgeable. Very nice. Wait time was insane. I didn't see the Doctor till 75 minutes after my scheduled time.
Other than the wait time due to a mixup, Dr. Sterling was awesome. She is very knowledgeable and would definitely recommend her as an ID specialist.
After having a poor experience with another doctor, I went to Dr. Sterling in hopes that she'd be more professional than my prior experience. Much to my satisfaction, Dr. Sterling exceeded my expectations. I thank her for making a tough situation that much easier. I give Dr. Sterling my highest recommendation.
After waiting for about an hour and forty-five minutes I finally met with Dr. Sterling who was very cold, she has no people skills. After doing many many tests, I was supposed to get the results in a week, but did not. I called their office many times before actually getting to speak to a person and not a machine, just to be notified that it would take another week for my results. Besides not ever seeing Dr. Sterling again or ever recommending her, I would highly discourage people from using this practice at all. Most of the people in the waiting room had been there since I arrived and many had to ask "how much longer?" This was the worst medical treatment center I have ever been to.
Professional, attentive and respectful.
Professional and friendly
Exceeded expectations with an honest yet compassionate demeanor, explaining plan for moving forward and tips for what I can do every day.
