This is a pretty big step for me. In 2011, I had double mastectomy. Having a double mastectomy at 36 was traumatic (at any age this would be). Due to this was left with intercostal brachial nerve damage. Absolutely horrific pain that has seriously limited me in many aspects of my every day life. I’ve triumphed through so much since then. I could go on to tell you about the many doctors and treatments through these years that left me untrusting and not wanting to even see doctors. UNTIL Dr. Sturm. Not only did he listen, but he HEARD me. He’s kind, compassionate and genuinely cares. His staff reflects that. Dave was my first interaction. I was so very nervous my first appt. My anxiety was incredibly high. I got confused on which door I was to go in, I called the office, and Dave actually stepped out of the door to wave at me to show me which door (he didn’t have to do that, but he did) everyone was smiling, and friendly. The young lady at the front desk was new, and Dave was helping her out and you could see that he was reassuring her that she was doing great. (And she’s so sweet) I met Alex, and WOW! That soul is a gift to the universe! The three visits I’ve had, have been “healing” in so many ways. I honestly can’t thank every one of you enough for the kindness you put back into the universe. Dr. Sturm, your staff is a direct reflection of who you are . Thank you for HEARING me. Update: 12/7/23 I need to give a shout out to Justin. He works very hard to get insurance issues solved and for the insurance to do the right thing. He’s knowledgeable , kind, caring, compassionate. I truly mean it when i say that Dr. Sturm is brilliant, compassionate, and he not only listens…he HEARS you. Thank you so much to everyone. You are putting good energy into the universe and that good energy comes back. Also, Brooke…you are a doll! Very very sweet! Thank you as well. Thank you all!!!

"Dr Sturm took the time to sit with me, discuss what’s going on, and lay out a plan. He wasn’t just going through the motions and checking boxes. After struggling for years to feel better I feel like I’m finally in the right place. Such a relief!"
