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.

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!

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.

Dr.Steinke is fabulous!! I first met Dr. Steinke and his wonderful team in his office when I presented with extreme pain in my neck and sudden weakness/paralysis in my arms and leg. He immediately calmed my fears and I felt confident he would be able to help me in my dire situation. after ordering stat MRIs he performed an emergency ACDF that was 100% successful in giving me the ability to walk again, pain free! He is very skilled, personable and knowledgeable! I am forever grateful for him.

I went to Dr. Stienke to get my 4th opinion re: my spinal degeneration. I found him to be frank, very informative and easy to talk to. He and his staff, including the Therapy Staff are professional and courteous. A great experience overall.

He performed my 3-level lumbar fusion in January, 2017, at Central Dupage Hospital in Winfield, IL. Four days later I was home and walking around the house with some lingering surgical pain but my spinal stenosis symptoms were gone! From first exam through follow-up Dr. Steinke and his team have been professional, considerate, and helpful in so many ways. His surgical skills are amazing and his commitment to his patients is remarkable. He followed my case long after I left the hospital!

Came in and met him for an ime appointment. Found him to be very informative, educated, helpful, and understanding. He definitely wasn't the kind of Dr there just to collect a check he truly seems to have a passion for what he does, and wants to help people get better. Unlike other ime doctor's that i believe would rather just collect some kind of kick backs/money under the table. His staff has always been very nice, understanding, and helpful. I would recommend him to anyone.
