Visiting Dr. Sternberg’s clinic was the best decision I could have made regarding pilonidal disease. I’d seen a few other doctors in my local area, whose expertise ran the gamut from not even being able to identify my problem (even after I told them what I thought it was) to having limited experience with actually treating it in the most advanced way. I’d read so many horror stories about people who had painful procedures that never ended up fixing the problem that I was almost scared into the cleft lift procedure. I am privileged in that I lived in the same state as the Sternberg Clinic and had the means to visit and have the procedure. But it was worth the expense. It was a mostly painless experience, and everyone at the Clinic was professional, friendly, and responsive. They are the best at what they do, and the procedure went off without a hitch. It’s been over six months now, and there hasn’t been any hint of recurrence. If you have the means but are still on the fence about the cleft lift procedure with Dr. Sternberg, believe the good stories.
