Review of Dr. Steinke

Abrupt, dismissive, spoke over me, did not address my concerns. My visit to discuss possible surgical options for my disc issues was a very negative experience and I would not recommend this Dr. to anyone else.

He was flip rude and condescending. He refused to answer my questions are addressed my concerns. The worst health care professional I have ever come across.

Review of Dr. Senall

-Dekalb, IL |

VERY disappointed, doesn't take ownership for his work. Had localized pain on ankle, said he'd had to go in and clean it up. We're 6 months post surgery and theres days I can even bear weight on it, his response is " xrays look fine", I medicate daily to go to work. He has no real concerns about how your doing, once surgery is over and you do the standard PT. He's done with you and off looking for the next one to do surgery on. Understand, opposite leg has a metal rod and 16 screws major surgery, I have no issues different doctor. Right shoulder anchors and wires major surgery,I have no issues different doctor. I can handle pain and not complain, but when you have minor surgery and end up in worst shape and doc dosen't believe you because the xrays say everything is OK, this not a doctor you want doing any type of surgery on you. I will find a doctor who will correct what he did wrong so I don't have to live the rest of my life like this, be warned hes done with you after surgery

Review of Dr. Steinke

-Amboy |

Please do NOT see this Dr. !!!!! I seen Dr Steinke for severe pain in my lower back today. When I set the appointment up over a month ago the office told me to submit all my x-rays, MRI, steroid injections, rehabilitation appointments, etc. everything from the past 2 years that I have had done up this day. So the dr could go over them before the appt. He was very arrogant and rude towards me. Very bad bedside manners!! Argumentive! Treated me like I was lying about my pain. OMG! The worst dr!

Review of Dr. Senall

- in Glen Ellyn, IL |

He repaired my torn Achilles. Very nice guy and patient in explaining my issue and the need to operate. Post repair I was jogging within 4 months, and feel as though, after 18 months, I have almost 100% strength back in that area. Scheduling is easy with the office. Highly recommend to friends and family members.

Review of Dr. Steinke


My father and I went to see him. Immediately his mannerisms were of disinterest. My father is claustrophobic. His solution to an all ready diagnosed issue was to put my father under anesthesia, and intubation—for a diagnostic image without explaining the risks of doing so. When I wanted to get him to explain it he declared I was “antagonistic” when I want some answers to pointed questions. He is defensive, arrogant, and obnoxiously indignant. Don’t waist your time.

Review of Dr. Sterba

- in Naperville, IL |

I see one review was negative about Dr Sterba. Not sure as to the issue but my experience with Dr Sterba was excellent. He's mild mannered, very thoughtful, listened intently, seemed determined to get the job done exactly right and freely engaged in a question and answer regarding my issue and prognosis (hip replacement). He picked up on a medical issue regarding the outcome sooner than I did by closely observing me. I have only good things to say about my experience with Dr. Sterba.
