Review for Dr. Steinberg

Dr Ali was very thorough and thoughtful. I felt confident in his presence that he would help me with my medical problems. I was treated immediately, did not have to wait to see him and thought he was kind and listened well. I recommend him for anyone who needs hematological help. He is excellent.
