I have a lot of gratitude for Dr. Sternberg and his team! I learned about pilonidal disease and surgeries online and found them dismal and not encouraging at all. It was gloomy to see that most surgeons would recommend a procedure which would have maybe a 50 percent success rate, with possible future surgeries in case of regression.
I thank God I found Dr. Sternberg, he was professional, competent, and overall encouraging. I have had no issues after the surgery. He even texted me a few times to check in, and each time I affirmed I was all OK. For me, I was back to normal within the time prescribed (fast) and I merely feel a numb sensation here and there. No pain or any other issues at all. Of course the surgery I received changed my appearance where the cut was made, but was well worth it.
The Cleft Lift procedure is as good as it gets. Don’t waste any time considering any other procedures, and definitely visit this doctor!Edgar S.
