    One of the things that really interests me about Dr. Eric Steele was he came out to the waiting room and called my name and I have never in all my years had a doctor do that. And I thought that was very that impressed me a lot. Well after I got in the room and he just kept them pressing me more and more. He's very very good at what he does. I had no pain with the procedure he did and he made sure to tell me if I did let him know and he would not make any pain for me, but I just had an all around 10 experience with him.

    Dr. Steele saw me on time, asked about the presenting problem and applicable history, conducted an eye exam, and gave me a treatment plan. Additionally, he had me meet with the surgery scheduling provider to get a date for excision of eyelid mass. This was extremely helpful as the last thing someone wants to do is "wait to hear back from us."
