    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!
