We could not be happier to have Dr. Sturgeon as our family physician. He is kind, friendly, knowledgeable, and explains information clearly. I am puzzled by some of the negative comments. He is personable and informal (but thorough). Perhaps these reviewers want a more formal doctor-patient relationship. We like his warm, easy manner. The practice has excellent staff, extended hours, and many tests (such as x-rays, labs) can be handled right there on the premises.

Dr. Sturgeon is a completely hands off doctor. I have seen him for four years and he never once checked my abdomen or any thing else except listen to my heart through my clothes. He doesn't shake hands but will do a hand bump. His Nurse Practioners are far superior to him. I have seen him sitting in his office with his feet propped up while his patients aren't being cared for. I would not recommend him to anyone and I am going to find a new doctor. I couldn't do worse.

I would not suggest you see this doctor, his staff is incompetent, they are unable to draw blood, i had to visit a hospital lab to have blood drawn,. completely unprofessional.
