    My name is [Name] [Name] and Dr. Steele to me is a superior physician not only because of his skills he exerts a certain feeling to his patients and which makes him feel like he truly is with them at that moment and talking about their problem and trying to solve things, bring things to a good, a guess, a good end to the whole thing of surgery and problems that the person, the patient is having. I truly recommend him to anyone. He's a wonderful surgeon, has a great deal of empathy which we all need and especially as we grow older. Thank you.

    My experience with Dr Steele was completely satisfying. I came in regarding concerns over skin tags. He analyzed then and assessed that they were not harmful. Then he gave me detailed information about removal options, pros and cons. I was able to get pricing. No hard sell. Plus, he was super-friendly and seemed like a genuinely wonderful individual. Parking was easy. I was in and out and to work by 9.

    Dr Steele made my total experience exceptional in every way. From my first office visit I felt safe, valued and assured of his abilities to care for my eye. He takes time with his patients to build trust and help them understand what comes next. I did not understand how dramatically my vision was impaired until surgery corrected the problem. Now, every day I discover how much better my vision is. I feel younger and more independent. Thank you Dr Steele, you're my hero.

    Dr. Steele is wonderful, as far as I know him. He hasn't done my surgery yet, so why don't you call me back in about, after the 4th, and I'll let you know really how I feel, but he's been wonderful so far. The fact that he comes out to meet all his patients and bring them back into his office is really amazing. He's caring, he's gentle and he appears to be extremely smart, so I'll let you know if you call me back in two weeks.
