What People Say About Dr. Charles Sturgeon, MD
Reply
Dr. Sturgeon was my doctor in Modesto CA in the 1990s. He took excellent care of my husband Ken Buck and me. He always was available when we had a medical need. He listened to us and helped us in so many ways. I really appreciate him. When I moved to Pine Grove and he moved to San Luis Obispo it was too far to travel. I miss his caring personality and the excellent care I received. If this is reviewed by someone other than Dr. Sturgeon, please give him my love. Carolyn Buck
