Dr. Sternberg is by far the best psychiatrist I have seen. He listens clearly to what you are saying and truly cares for his patients. He has gone above and beyond to be there for me if needed. In my opinion he has covered everything from extreme knowledge and experience, listens and has genuine concern, allows time needed to talk, has diagnosed correctly and is available if you need him. I am so thankful he had openings when I needed a good psychiatrist the most. Thank you Dr. Sternberg

I have been a patient of Dr. Sternberg’s since 2018. I sought him out based on stellar reviews, at a time when I really needed help sorting out my meds but also finding someone who would take the time to listen. All but two of my visits have been telehealth. It was a seamless experience long before COVID-19. He handles everything at once and on his own — scheduling, reminders, visits, prescriptions and refills and payment. Only drawback is he doesn’t submit claims but that’s pretty typical given lack of mental health parity. Licensed in VA and FL. It’s hard to find a good psychiatrist. I recommend Dr. Sternberg unequivocally.

Dr. Sternberg is an exceptional psychiatrist and probably one of my favorites. I always found him to be easy-going and friendly with a good sense of humor. I have seen a number of mental health professionals who had a strong, detached clinical presence that made them seem unrelatable- Dr. Sternberg is quite the opposite and very personable. The only reason I stopped seeing him is that I moved out of the state he practices in and the law prevented it. I can't think of anyone I'd recommend more highly

Being a patient of Dr. Sternberg has shown me what quality care is. I was surprised that when I inquired about setting up an appointment he responded quickly. That's correct he responded, not a secretary or a health group manager. I am generally very uncomfortable meeting new people, as well as talking on the phone. In the first session I had with him though, he put me at ease right away. He is respectful, non judgmental, and above all Sincere. Because of his care I have been able to quickly accomplish goals I put off for most of my life. I am an adult with depression and ADD. Although I am 42 years old, and have seen numerous doctors in my lifetime, this is the first time I have has a doctor who is both effective and compassionate.

I have been seeing Dr. Sternberg for more than six years for depression and anxiety. He provides impeccable, effective care, and I recommend him highly. He’s given me my life back. Upon beginning treatment with him, he immediately adjusted my medications, which made a huge difference. He’s always helped me cope with the way my conditions affect my daily life, responding right away when I need help between appointments. I also have chronic pain and fatigue, and his treatment has improved both.

I would highly recommend Dr. Sternberg. He is compassionate and patient. He listens and makes himself available to his patients. Scheduling was a problem for us during the week so his weekend hours were great for us! Dr. Sternberg made me feel comfortable and I was able to talk to him easily. When I first contacted his practice his staff was so kind and so great getting me an appointment quickly. Dr. Sternberg got me through a very rough patch in my life and I am very thankful to him!

Dr. Sternberg's treatment plan of providing medication management with talk therapy has provided me and my family members with excellent mental health care. He has supported us through a number of crises, and I attribute many of the positive changes in my life to his guidance and insight. I feel Dr. Sternberg supports, respects, and cares for me as a patient and a person.

This is the absolutely best doctor you will find. First and foremost he knows his stuff. Backwards and forwards. He also treats you like a person and you are part of your own treatment. I can't say enough about how little this is found in doctors and what an excellent style Dr. Sternberg has in working with a patient while at the same time making the person feel listened to, respected, and whose opinions are respected. Your thoughts and feelings matter here & treatment is between both of you.
