  • Jun 12, 2019

    Very professional, caring, and thorough. I would highly recommend Dr Steele.

  • Jun 12, 2019

    Yeah. Yes, Eric was very accommodating. He was very knowledgeable and he was far better than the treatment that I did at the VA for Eye Care. I commented to him on the deficiencies of what happens to us when we go to the VA for eye care and OHSU is head and shoulders above what the VA has to offer. Thank you.

  • Jun 11, 2019

    I liked Dr. Steele. He helped me make decisions and was very clear on my future surgery.

  • Jun 11, 2019

    Timely, punctual, knowledgeable and pleasant. It was a very effective visit

  • Jun 11, 2019

    Yes, Dr. Steele and his entourage were very professional. They were on time, they were very punctual, they seemed to know what they were doing and I'll better be able to tell you how I feel about it after my surgery on the 26th. Thank you for calling I'm hoping this will help you somewhat. Thank you. Goodbye.

    My experience with Dr. Steele, first of all, I just I love this doctor. I think he's a genuine person and he just doesn't seem like a physician that's standing before you he's seems like he's truly a person interested in you. And he had some sad news to tell me that in which I have to have a surgery done over and I know he was feeling really bad about it and so I felt in my heart that this is not something that he wanted to have to say to me, but I do care about him. I think he's a wonderful surgeon and cares for me and I am having the surgeries redone. So nothing bad about him at all and I just thank you for having such kind of people there at OHS*.

  • Jun 09, 2019

    Hi, I'm disappointed that I can only give Dr. Steele a 10. I would like to give him 20. He is the most genuinely caring person that I've met recently. He's very present when he's talking with you, with me, he's caring, he called me the day after the surgery to check on me and how I was feeling, and to review the post operative procedures. He is a remarkable person and a skilled surgeon and I wish that there were more people like him just in the*.

  • Jun 08, 2019

    Everyone from the parking attendant to the receptionist to the nurses to the anesthesiologists to Dr. Steele were professional, helpful and caring.

  • Jun 08, 2019

    Dr Steele answered all my questions and explained, in detail, the process of the surgery and possible ramifications. I appreciated it.

  • Jun 07, 2019

    As I have said before, I LOVE Dr. Steele and his entire staff are terrific. No one wants to have eye surgery but if they do they HAVE to have it done by this team!!!!!

  • Jun 07, 2019

    I enjoyed the visit would not want to live there then something would really be wrong with me. But if there was I feel in safe hands there.

  • Jun 07, 2019

    Well run from top to bottom.Could not be happier.

  • Jun 06, 2019

    He explained everything that needed to be done and answered all my questions. He was very kind and friendly. I felt very comfortable with him doing the surgery but it was way too expensive.

  • Jun 05, 2019

    Very through and explained symptoms, cause, and remedy in easy to remember terms.

  • Jun 05, 2019

    Friendly, to the point and satisfactory!

  • Jun 05, 2019

    Dr was very helpful, explained in detail everything going on with my eyes. Very honest and encouraging in his diagnosis.

  • Jun 04, 2019

    Yes, I found him to be very personable, explained everything very carefully to me. He's very easy to talk to you would not be at all intimidating to patients, and I'm not I just think he's wonderful. Thank you.

  • Jun 03, 2019

    I am so impressed with Dr. Steele. He was informative, compassionate, friendly; truly the entire experience so far with him was exactly the kind of care all patients should receive from a health care provider. At this point, it has been 3 days since my surgery. There is no visible trauma to my face or eyes other than the stitches above my eye and the slightest appearance of bruising on my eyelid. His surgical skills appear to be top-notch. I am very thankful and impressed in every way with Dr. Steele. Both my husband and I are so appreciative of how he took care of me and made us both feel less frightened and confident in the best possible outcome. It is rare to find a Physician in today's world with all of the attributes a patient deserves; Dr. Steele truly provided us with the absolute best care we could have hoped for!

  • Jun 01, 2019

    Dr. Steele, I thought he was just absolutely friendly, nice, caring guy. He was good in there when he took care of my eye and he called to see how I was doing a couple days later. I..... I would..... I have more eye surgery I need done and I would definitely go to him for it. He's just.... he's a good guy.

  • May 25, 2019

    Everyone I encountered, by phone and in person, was courteous knowledgeable and professional. The facility was also clean and pleasant.

  • May 25, 2019

    It has been all good. I felt like I was meeting a new friend for the first time. Dr. Steele was very friendly from our first encounter and showed sincere interest when speaking to me. Conversation was easy and interesting with him. When I was awaiting the surgery, that was scheduled about 45 days after my first appointment with him, he recalled our conversation with the friendliness and concern that is so lacking in this present time. He's a champion!!

  • May 25, 2019

    I was very pleased ... was very pleased with him.

  • May 25, 2019

    My experience was outstanding. His bed side manner was great, he explained things, he did an outstanding job on the surgery. And I was very impressed by his follow up.

  • May 24, 2019

    All the staff was extremely friendly and kind.

  • May 24, 2019

    Hi. It was a ... it was a good experience. Dr. Steele popped in and spoke to us briefly. And I just ... I think so highly of the man. He's ... he's kind and caring and honest and well, I don't have any way to to know that he's honest, but he sure comes across as ethical. And the other staff were very thorough and empathetic in particular Susan, the intake nurse and Greg, the anesthetist. I forget what the rest of this title was. Good folks, very very reassuring.

  • May 24, 2019

But I think we covered all the bases of what we were going to attempt to do in the future and it went very well and I appreciated the doctor and his professional. Aspects of the whole thing, and it was just it was good. Thank you.

  • May 21, 2019

    It was an arduous trip to get there but when I met Dr. Steele he treated me straight away and straight on forward and I liked that very much and if I had to come again I would request that Dr. Steele would be my doctor and my consultant up there.

  • May 18, 2019
