I've visited this office numerous times with legitimate complaints of anxiety, but instead of trying to help me, I was asked if I read my bible? Which he's, I know the bible well thank you. I have severe chest pains and panic attacks and was unable to get any help from Dr. Sturgeon. I was also tested for a wide range of things such as thyroid diabetes, etc. I was called and told I had type 2 diabetes but was never offered any medication to help control it. I would not recommend this doctor for anyone needing help,outside of treating a cold. Worthless, thanks for nothing.
I have been in his care for the last four years and he has taken very good care of me. He has managed to get my high blood pressure taken care of, which has been a big problem for me. I am a male in my late forties, so it is difficult for me to talk about personal matters to anyone. Not so with Dr Sturgeon, he makes you feel well at ease and talks to you like your a friend and not a patient. I have nothing but high praise and would recommend him to anyone.
We have had several doctors with a devil may care attitude. Then we met Rodney! My wife and I were totally amazed at this young doctor that really cared about and seemed deeply concerned about us as individuals and not just as a means to make a payment on a Porche. I thought these docs were long gone but if there are more like Rodney coming into the profession maybe just maybe this world will become as nice a place to live as it use to be.
