  • Apr 20, 2019

    Hi, Dr. Steele was very helpful. He explained things very readily, he seemed to be caring and I appreciated his call back, even though I didn't receive it....I just got to let hear it in person. He did a very good job.

  • Apr 19, 2019

    I did not agree with his diagnosis at all and I'm sure he doesn't realize the distress and distraction I have from the blocked vision. I had skin cancer removed and I understand that part of the droopy eyelid is caused from that. He didn't run any other tests at all and he was very (INAUDIBLE) by telling me that I was mad, that I was angry when I would ask him a question and I was not mad and I was not angry. I was disappointed in his diagnosis and really resent being taunted with being accused of being mad. I felt that*
