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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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
