I saw Dr. Sternberg for a cleft lift in November of 2018. He and his staff made the process as easy as possible – helping me figure out where to stay since I was coming in from Georgia, working with me on scheduling so that I could minimize my time off of work, and helping me when insurance issues popped up. Dr. Sternberg has answered every question I’ve had post-surgery, and I could not recommend him more highly. I’m very thankful to have this problem behind me (pardon the pun). My pilonidal flare-ups used to happen with even a 3-hour car ride. Two months post-surgery, my wife and I drove 15 hours in one day to get to Texas for a friends’ wedding without issue, without fear, and without pain.
