All we can say about Dr. Sterling is fantastic, he treats you like family, takes what ever time needed to answer any questions. The staff is excellent, I would highly recommend Dr Sterling, he has taken great care of both my wife and I.

Dr sterling recently did cataract surgery on both of my eyes, both within 3 weeks. I am a college umpire and i obviously had to have surgery for my profession. This guy was recommended by my optomitrist and dr sterling was very caring and did a great job. Now all the coaches can't tell i am blind anymore. He is a great doctor in my opinion and i will recommend him to anyone i know with eye problems, great doctor
