I am glad to know I’m not the only one who finds him lacking in bedside manners. Maybe I won’t feel quite as intimidated knowing it’s not just me and that he treats everyone the same. I agree that he Is competent and is totally focused on fixing the problem. That is what matters the most.

Dr Sturtz is very knowledgeable. Although his bedside manner seems brusque, I think it's due to his being all business and fixing the patient. We hid brief personal conversation. After diagnosis and scripts, he let me know, with concern, what to do when and if the eczema returned.

No Bedside Manner at all! Walks into exam room doesn't look at me or say hello---not a word! Not good for a NEW patient to be treated that way! The staff was nice and friendly--but they need a Dr. with some manners and personality!
