Dr. Steinberger was reassuring and only operated on me when there wasn't another alternative. The wait time for appointments is minimal and the staff is friendly. I owe the use of my arm to Dr. Steinberger.

Patients suffering and in need of alleviating acute pain, BE WARE!!!!!! Dr. Steinberger is the worst physician I have ever encountered. Rude, obnoxious, inpatient, grossly negligent of his duties. Never looked at my numerous and detailed reports, my CDs or X-RAY studies. "SUMMARIZED" my condition on the run, distracted, abrupt and grossly unprofessional. He should be booted out of the medical profession and relegated to working at STOP & SHOP. I wouldn't bring my dog to him. LEE GARDON

Dr. Steinberger was rude to my 84 year old mother. He has a horrible bedside manner. He was rushing her out of the room couldn’t be bothered because as he stated “ I ONLY do the big stuff”. Only cares if the patient needs surgery. DO NOT USE HES HORRIBLE SHAME OJ HIM TO TREAT AN 84 year old so badly

Dr. Alfred Steinberger performed (ACDF) surgery to remove a herniated / degenerative disc in my neck. Was VERY pleased with results! Best decision I ever made! While the procedure was a bit scary to me & I was worried about the recovery - the results outweighed ALL of my concerns. No more stiffness, less headaches - no more numbness in my arms & fingers! Surgery was without any complications & scar is VERY minimal! Highly recommend this superbly skilled neurosurgeon!

My husband had spinal decompression surgery in April 2018 and Dr Steinberger was his surgeon. He was professional and thorough and my husband is recovering very well.

Dr. Steinberger was the 3rd of my opinions for serious back surgery I was facing. I was rewarded by the most comprehensive exam of any I had experienced. Dr. Steinberger reviewed my CD's with other neurosurgeons in the practice and spoke to me and my husband very concisely about my issues and corrective procedures. He inspires confidence. I underwent a 4-level lumbar fusion with laminectomies and am doing beautifully! Highly recommended!

Horrible experience. Was in acute pain from back injury and the office manager told me that they only accept cash and no credit cards and that I had to pay before I was seen. She said that the doctor was out of network and the visit was $150. which I agreed to pay. I told her I would mail a check a soon as I got back home but she made a big deal about it. She insisted I drive myself to an ATM! I was in such pain! Dr. Steinberger just left and said that was their policy. No compassion!
