Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

The doctor herself is nice but if the doctor’s financial department is horrible then there is no meaning to go there! Her financial stuff made such a mess with my insurance and made me so stressed that I am scared for my valuable pregnancy! After clearing up the mess she made,I am never going back to that office ever!

I would highly recommend Dr. Sondra Sturim. I needed a procedure done in the OR. She held my hands before the the anesthesia took affect and I woke up all better. She is an expert in her field. She works with compassion and is competent. I am happy to share my experience. I read some reviews on Dr. Sturim before I had my surgery. And this is why it is so important for me to write this review; because I understand how scary it is to find a good Doctor. Dr. Sturim is an excellent Doctor.
