    Dr. Steele was amazingly informative, and easy to speak with, and very friendly, and I truly appreciated how he called me a couple days later to check in to see how I was feeling after my surgery.

    Dr. Steele was very professional, very accessible very friendly he explained the various options for me. I decided to undergo surgery which is pretty minor procedure, but it still requires condition the day of the surgery I was greeted by the numerous Health Care Professionals who really seemed to be interested in my care Dr. Steele came in for surgery told me what he was going to do which he had done before greeted me after surgery followed me a phone call and then I have an appointment coming up. I'm healing tremendously. So I hardly have any discoloration or bleeding at all. So I recommend Dr. Steele highly. Thank you.

    Dr. Steele did.... was excellent in taking care of my eye problem. I have had him operate on me once before and was so happy that I would recommend anybody to him that had an issue with their eye and that needed eye surgery. His team was very caring and he even called me in person the next day, which is very unusual anymore. It's usually a nurse or somebody, but he called me and I had it....I had a question and he answered it for me and reassured me that everything was going to be okay. So, I really appreciate it and would recommend Dr. Steele and his team anytime I could. Thank you.

    My experience with Dr. Steele is that he is an unusually, exceptional, wonderful physician. He is very, very good communicator. He was very attentive. He was explaining everything that went on. I couldn't have asked for a better care.

    Hey, this is an excellent experience. Everyone seemed top notch. I've heard nothing but good about the medical team up there and was very happy to have been given the opportunity to have you guys help me. Thank you.

    Everyone was so friendly from the parking attendant to the aide who wheeled me to my car. Every nurse, aide, anesthesiologist and Dr. Steele introduced themselves to me and made sure that I understood the procedure I was about to have. Dr. Steele is awesome. He explained everything to me and was even understanding that I had vanilla wafer too soon before my surgery. He made sure that he could work me in a few hours later for my surgery so that I did not have to reschedule at a later date.
