Sterling provided me with the fullest attention and time. I feel as if I learned many exercises here that I will use in the future. I appreciate the staff for their hard work and devotion.

"My insurance covered for neck and back pain so I found Sterling Physical Therapy through my insurance provider. The physical therapist who did my assessment was EXCELLENT and then I never saw her again. I had a physical therapy assistant who was pretty good for one day but it was his last day on the job (sigh). I was later assigned another physical therapy assistant who pretty much let me do my exercises in the corner on my own. To his credit, he had three patients at a time, some of which really needed more attention than me so I think his focus was split."
Renee Linares Chin
"Seemed very knowledgeable and they were very kind."
"Sterling Carter is an amazing doctor and he cares about each patient that comes in for therapy. He took the time to review and explain my treatment plan. He makes a point to greet all the patients, I have visited other PT facilities and know that a skilled and caring staff is the most important part of your rehab. The entire staff, including the front office, is very professional and they will treat you with respect and kindness. This made my visits almost enjoyable and more comfortable. It was like visiting friends that wanted to help me move and feel better. I highly recommend Sterling Physical Therapy."
"Absolutely a great experience. Outstanding service, attention to details."
"The only place to go if quality, professional care is what you need!!!! I went to Sterling for P.T. after shoulder surgery and was so blessed by the doctors, techs and front office staff. Every visit, I was greeted with a smile and was quickly seen by the doctor. Everyone on staff excels in their positions and have wonderful "bed-side" manner. There is no other physical therapy place that even comes close!! They are the one & only place for me!"
"Very responsive, helpful and communicate always.
Beatriz Vargas de Rivera
"Sterling physical therapy & Wellness is a friendly, warm and exceptional facility. Dr. Sterling Carter and his phenomenal team were professional and knowledgeable in their delivery of service. Although you may have several therapists, the individual treatment plan is executed seamlessly. I had a shoulder injury and had very limited range of motions. The staff pushed and motivated me to work hard in therapy sessions as well as at home. If you are in search of therapist, look no further. Thank all of you again for your support in my healing process!"
"I came to Sterling Therapy after surgery, barely able to move my arms. After my last appointment today I have full range of motion and gaining my strength back. Thank you, Dr. Sterling and your staff for all the help, encouragement, and concern. You all made this process a little easier to go through."
"Great people! Very Knowledgeable on every aspect of therapy. Treat you like family and they care. Any time I need therapy, I'm headed there. hank you, and the entire staff."

"Had a great experience at Sterling Therapy. Their patient pick up service is awesome and unique. The staff was great and their advice really helped me. I highly recommend this place if you live in the Sugar Land area."
"I have been volunteering here as a student for the past 3-4 years. I can say without a doubt that I know and understand EVERYTHING that is going on throughout the clinic. I can honestly say that each employee, especially Sterling (DPT,CEO) genuinely cares about every patient that walks through here. Customer service and quality patient care is what matters most in this clinic."
"I came to Sterling PT&W after my second back surgery did not fully relieve the chronic pain I was dealing with. During my sessions there was always someone right beside me...assessing the quality of my exercises and correcting if needed. Dr Carter and staff not only helped me feel better but I came away with a working knowledge on how to stay healthy at home."
"An excellent therapy facility. All of the doctors, assistants, interns and the owner are TOP NOTCH!. I recommend this facility with the highest regard, simply because they get the job done and they care!"
"Quality care from very professional staff!! I work long hours; however Sterling and his staff worked around my work schedule to ensure that I was able to make my weekly appointments! The quality of care was great, and I've been free from pain for months now! I would highly recommend this clinic to anyone who needs Physical Therapy!! "
"The first thing that impresses me anywhere I go is how I am received at the front desk. The ladies here are delightful, friendly, courteous, and professional. Mr. Sterling & all of his therapists are great. Hats of to him, Dr. Cox, BP, & Jullianna. And I must say that they are timely .Very important to me. I went in with a lot of pain & leaving pain-free. What more can I say. I'm happy."
"Sterling is a wonderful PT to work with. He really cares about his patients. I had a knee injury and Sterling helped me get a full recovery. I highly recommend Sterling PT to anyone who needs a caring PT to help them recover from their injury."
"I am a veteran of several knee surgeries, & many rounds of physical therapy. The last 2 years have been the worst of my life; constant pain on nearly ever step has severely decreased my mobility. Shots & other physical therapy had been ineffective to date.
Thankfully, this time I was referred to Sterling Physical Therapy & Wellness in Sugar Land, Tx. From the time I walked in the door, I had a good feeling. The entire staff is friendly, helpful & extremely knowledgable.
After only 2 visits, I had a noticeable reduction in pain, as well as an increase in muscle tone, strength & flexion. They used some techniques/exercises that were new to me, but all were effective. After 4 visits, I began to feel the life return to my legs, & I felt strong enough to begin working out between therapy sessions.
If all that isn't enough, the whole experience has been very inspirational. Prior to beginning therapy at Sterling, I wasn't confident I'd get relief from my primary complaints. But, now I believe that the remaining sessions will help me regain fitness that I thought was unattainable.
Thank you to the doctors, assistants & interns for helping me along the road to recovery. I have & will continue to recommend Sterling Physical Therapy & Wellness to others."
"My total experience was five Stars with Sterling Physical Therapy started with the office manager: Kelly. She made sure I received the necessary documents prior to my schedule consultation that gave me the option of filling out those papers convenient to me! Kelly is a star! The receptionists’ greeting is as warm over the phone, and Harib’s demeanor confirms her smile in person validates the atmosphere when you arrive! Harib, she's a star! From the first day, I was treated with integrity and compassion. Dr. Lakshmi effectually listened to my concerns and she immediately focused on my personalized care plan and long term goals. I felt relief almost immediately! After my rounds with my knee, I returned for my shoulder…. the “Rhitis Brothers” have not been good to my seasoned sixties! After needing both rounds of physical therapy, I am slowly reclaiming agility, which is making my life more manageable. I will allow Sterling Physical Therapy to assist in the healing process for my husband of 32 years, because they have been compassionate professionals to me. The staff understands our need for consistency with comprehensive care. Both my husband and I are honorable veterans. Dr. Carter continues to offer dependability and great care as he still proudly serves in the US Army. Note to all others seeking physical therapy, 'You have something good you stick with it!'"
"I loved the staff's friendly, comforting attitude; as well as, their willingness to assist each other if your assigned PTA was sidetracked or called away.
I never waited more than 2 minutes (literally) to begin my session.
Ask for Julianna & Lindsey- they are AWESOME!!!!!!!"
"Staff is very friendly, They provide great workouts and are very time efficient when it comes to getting you in soon. I enjoyed having my therapy here."
"I was very pleased with the staff that worked there. They really go out of there way to make sure that they make you comfortable, I really enjoyed my experience with them."
"I came to Sterling Physical Therapy and went to my first two sessions and was very displeased with the way I treated at the front office and their team of therapist. Their staff was not sympathetic to my needs and was not asking me what I felt I needed more of what they do with every other patient that comes in their door every persons injury is different. I had to wait a week and a half to be scheduled and still had to wait the day of my appointment. I would not recommend this office to anyone if your in pain its hard to deal with people who are not understanding."
"In 2009, I was diagnosed with a bulging disc in my lower back and arthritis. At that time, I was in constant pain and whenever I tweaked my back I would be unable to walk for a week to two weeks at a time. My back doctor recommended physical therapy which I had never been to before. I decided to scour the internet to find a physical therapy facility that called to me - the only one that really stood out was Sterling Physical Therapy. Once I saw Sterling in person I was blown away - here was a state-of-the-art facility in pristine condition, it felt very spa like instead of like a medical building, and it even had a heated pool to do aquatic therapy in. I soon found out that Deborah the owner extraordinaire's philosophy was for the physical therapists to develop personal relationships with each patient and to treat each patient like they are the only patient in the world. The patients here are treated like royalty... It is a far cry from most medical offices in Los Angeles where you are made to feel like a number, rushed in and out of your appointment, and the staff never takes the time to get to know you. I have been fortunate enough to work with most of the amazing physical therapist at Sterling- Chris, April, Rachel, and Gina. The staff is incredibly hard working, compassionate, and dedicated to helping the patients improve their health. Thanks to Sterling, I have been able to successfully manage my back pain by building up my core strength to the point where my back never goes out any more! Thank you Sterling!!"
"If you're looking for a good Physical Therapy clinic, I would highly recommend Sterling Physical Therapy and Aquatics in Simi Valley. Before I started physical therapy, I had a severe neurological disorder. I was unable to walk, write, work or do basic housework. I was in pain 24/7 and in need of an In Home Caregiver. After just 6 weeks of physical therapy, I was able to write again and walked a mile! Within months, I had pretty much a full recovery. I can now take care of myself and work for the first time in over a year. The staff at Sterling Physical Therapy are the best! Deborah, Rachel, April and Susie are so committed to their patients. Unlike most facilities, they have a pool there (great for gentle exercise) and you get private one on one care. But the thing that sets them apart from other clinics, is that THEY GENUINELY CARE ABOUT THEIR PATIENTS!!! They are all very professional, compassionate and dedicated. I was told by doctors that my condition was a life long disease so I never expected to recover. This experience has opened my eyes to the power of Physical Therapy and given me hope again!"
Jennifer S., Chatsworth, C.A.
"My experience with Debra and Gina at Sterling Physical Therapy was excellent. I had total right hip replacement surgery at the end of August 2014, and selected them because they are close to where I live in Simi Valley. Gina, my actual therapist, was clearly very experienced and also very pleasant to work with. I was amazed at how quickly the rehab of my right hip progressed, and in great part credit it to her knowing what to do. She found the balance between being careful not to overdue the rehab, but also was able to push me to get results. Thanks again Sterling."
"I came to Sterling for their aquatic therapy program. I am a young woman having to deal with the painful nuisance of enduring hip dysplasia. Using the pool in a physical therapy program was immensely beneficial for me. Working out in the water helped me to remain active while strengthening my hip muscles and ligaments. My hip pain is greatly reduced and I am able to work out at my local gym without dreading pain after. I no longer have to take anti inflammatory medication on a daily basis. Thank you so much for helping me get back to my active lifestyle!"
"My experience at Sterling was easy from the first appointment to my discharge. I live in Westlake Village and had an ACL repair (knee surgery) My doctor referred me to therapy near my home. I was one of 10 people in a room with one aide. I saw the therapist one time at the eval and that was it. I thought, 'Am I going to get better when there was really no true therapist treating me?' So after 2 visits I called my doctor for another therapy office and he told me, 'The best therapy is across town in Simi Valley called Sterling, if you want to make the 15 minute drive, I will fax them your info and a prescription.' My answer was, 'YES.' I called Sterling and was giving an appt for the next day. The drive was easy and they are right off the 118 fwy. I was seen by Chris and he was the only therapist that treated me from the beginning to the end. No aides, no hassle, just great care. Debra in the office worked with my insurance so I would only have to pay a $5 copay instead of $45 at the other facility (Sterling was not in my network and I paid less). I am back to my normal routine now and I can drive my car with a clutch without pain in my knee. So, my doctor was right, Sterling is the best."
"In December of 2011 I sprain my medial collateral ligament on my right knee. After having a MRI, I found out I had a large amount of joint effusion (swollen knee), severe synovial proliferation (inflammation), chondral defect (cartridge damage), complex Bakers cyst, and Osteoarthritis. I was not able to bend my knee nor could I straighten it. Walking and moving around was difficult. It was suggested I opt for physical therapy, but I was not sure where to go. I was on my way home from a doctor's appointment when I noticed that there was a building in a shopping center, Sterling Physical Therapy and Aquatics. From the minute I called them to walking through the door I have had nothing but great satisfaction from Deborah, the owner, and her staff. They are all professional, team oriented, respectful, and they have compassion for their patients. They listen to what their patients have to say.
Deborah set me up with a terrific therapist, Chris. My first appointment was a consultation where we discussed what occurred, what was my goal, and what are my best options. During that time Chris measured the bend in my knee to be 93%, which was way below what a normal bend should be. He started me off on some no impact exercises to work the fluid out of my knee, which was difficult for me. Over the years I dislocated my knee on multiple occasions which instilled a fear in me. I immediately tensed up when a doctor, or even Chris, go near my knee. But with his direction, caring nature and detailed instructions my sense of fear diminished. Within 3 months I went from a 93% bend, icing my knee three times a day, not being able to really walk to a 132% bend, working out in the gym, to walking. What a great sense of accomplishment. Before this occurrence I was an avid hiker (hiking up steep hill sides) and attending various active events. To be brought down the way I did was traumatic for me. But all thanks to Sterling Physical Therapy and Aquatics I am now able to get back out and the things I love to do.
I would like to express my great appreciation for everything that Deborah and her entire staff did for me, at all time they represented the business in the most professional and positive way. I certainly will be recommending Sterling to anyone who might need there very special skills, thank you so much I highly recommend them to EVERYONE!"
"A physical therapist that cares I personally have worked with Sterling Carter and he is a very down-to-earth person and a good listener. As an independent practice owner, he will have your best interest at heart. I do recommend him!"
"Awesome staff. Dr. Sterling is very personable and nice. He goes out of his way to make you feel welcome. My cousin passed away last week and they noticed I wasn't myself so they asked if I was OK and I just mentioned that I was going through a lot with a death in the family. And that was that. I check the mail a few days later and they sent me a sympathy card! That was so nice of them.
A simple card goes a long way and can change many things..."
"All thanks to @SterlingTherapy im pretty much back on my feet!"
"Hit up my man @SterlingTherapy down in H-Town (Sugar Land, TX that is) for your fitness consultation on whats needed to lose that weight."
