    Thanks, Dr. Steele is wonderful and kind - I think you treat me so good whenever I come down. So, thank you. Bye.

  • Jan 13, 2019

    I was very pleased with the service that I received. And would highly recommend it to anyone else who has the kind of problems that I've had. My biggest concern was... Lack of communication. If it weren't for my chart. I wouldn't know that I had a follow up appointment coming up next week. The communication aspect was definitely not the best that I had seen, especially the part about going to pre register or the pre-op registration process. Thankfully someone called me and we were able to do it over the phone.

  • Jan 12, 2019

    Always a good experience.Dr. Steele is kind and caring.

  • Jan 12, 2019

    Fantastic care. But our appointment was at 6:15 to check-in and being unfamiliar with the clinic I spent 45 min trying to find a way into the sized floor. I finally got a number and called just in time to not be late. They need to post by elevator on garage floors.

  • Jan 12, 2019

    Amazing

  • Jan 11, 2019

  • Jan 11, 2019

    The receptionist is always the first contact and impression with any office, whether it be medical or professional. Receptionist at this clinic for Dr. Steele was very nice. What a pleasant surprise to have Dr Steele come out to greet his patients in the waiting area. Dr. Steele was very nice and pleasant to visit with.Having just met this Dr and have to have surgery will be a lot easier, as I have a good feeling about him.

  • Jan 11, 2019

    Fabulous patient reception and doctor called next day to check up!

  • Jan 11, 2019

    Dr. Steel is an excellent provider. He spoke in terms that I understood. He explain the procedures that we've done. He gave me a good vision for things they had for what could happen. So, I'm very happy with Dr. Steele. He did a procedure for me last summer and most likely will be doing another one sometime in the next.....in the near future. So I truly enjoyed his ability to relate to me and to make everything understandable and successful. So, thank you.

  • Jan 11, 2019

    Everything there from the first person out front to all the people who I associate with seem very efficient always polite and very helpful and seemed like they'll know exactly what they were supposed to do.

  • Jan 11, 2019

    He's a very professional doctor. He's got a good bed side manner. He was very helpful with me explained everything to me. I couldn't ask better for a better experience for his time there. So that's the reason.

  • Jan 10, 2019

    He fully informed me about the procedure he would be doing.

  • Jan 10, 2019

    He listened and explained everything to me well.

  • Jan 10, 2019

    Everyone I met with was very accommodating and made me feel welcome. Dr Steele was very thorough and took the nervousness away.

  • Jan 10, 2019

    So... Dr. Steele came out to the waiting room and... answered... himself rather than sending a... assistant out, he did the... original meeting... started writing doing things rather than just having a... consultation, which I very much appreciate. And... it was not... generally you have to be brought into the office into a small room by an assistant just sit in there for a half an hour waiting for the doctor the doctor comes in for ten minutes that's not the way Dr. Steele did this. And then he seemed very positive about the outcome of the surgery that I... scheduled.

  • Jan 07, 2019

    Hi. I was impressed by the doctor and his thoroughness. I was pleasantly surprised that my appointment was pretty much on time. Maybe only a 10 minute wait. I believe that very highly. And overall, I thought he did a really good job explaining how the procedure would go and the follow up with the second person right after him. Thanks.

  • Jan 06, 2019

He was very courteous and was quick to get me an appointment today. So no, I'm just very, very satisfied, and I thank you. Bye-bye.

    Dr. Steel was great! I enjoyed his bedside manor and the techs were also great. The only issue I had was when I checked in with the lady sitting to the right of the desk, she told me to have a seat and the lady sitting to the left at the desk, will call me up and get me all checked in. I signed in at roughly 12:30pm with a 1pm check in time. I walked up at 10 after 1 and the lady at the left, had no clue as to who I was. The lady at the right had wrote my name down on a sticky note and sat it close to the lady on the left. When I finally got to the pre-op, they were surprised to learn I was early and so were they. Everything else was great!

  • Dec 29, 2018

    Dr. Steele is one of the kindest doctors and efficient and knowledgeable, friendly and he's just great to work with and be a patient of. So I can only give him a 10 10 10 10. So that's it. He's wonderful.

  • Dec 28, 2018

    Professional, timely, informative

  • Dec 27, 2018

    Warm, friendly and confidence-inspiring team of doctors and nurses. I felt in absolutely great hands throughout my procedure!

  • Dec 25, 2018

    Very informative and Dr made me feel comfortable and explained my procedure with details.

  • Dec 25, 2018

    Could not have been a better experience at a health provider or hospital. It goes without saying that Dr. Steele and his office staff are superb.Admission into the surgery unit and preup procedures were simple. The sixth floor surgery unit at Casey I institute is a great example of the way a surgery unit should flow. My nurse, Colette, was efficient and incredibly thoughtful with warm blankets etc. All of the attendants, Especially David the anesthesiologist were wonderful and listened to all of my questions and answer them thoroughly.

  • Dec 24, 2018

    He was did a great job of explaining my options and answering questions, I really enjoyed my appointment.

  • Dec 23, 2018

    Dr. Steele is very professional. He answered all the questions that I had. He was very pleasant, greeted us with love and care and explained all the process very carefully. So we're really appreciated that and to us, he's a great surgeon. Thank you.

  • Dec 22, 2018

    They were very good in there. I got in there and we are treated right away. Dr. Steele was very pleasant before, and afterwards he was very pleasant, and he called the next day today and talked for quite a while, and I had a very good conversation and felt very comfortable with the whole experience. It was very nice.
