I have had an amazing experience with Dr. Steinbacher over the past six years. He performed double jaw surgery to correct facial alignment in 2015 and the results were life-changing! Not only do I have an enhanced physical appearance and renewed self-confidence, but my ability to speak, breathe, and eat is significantly improved. A few months later I underwent a rhinoplasty by Dr. Steinbacher which improved my breathing and day-to-day life even further! I cannot thank Dr. Steinbacher at Yale enough and recommend him for jaw surgery and rhinoplasty to anyone searching for an excellent surgeon.

Dr. Steinbacher did an incredible job on my jaw surgery back in 2016. The results exceeded my expectations and the procedure was truly life changing. Him and his entire team created a comfortable environment, and made what seemed like would be such a scary procedure, feel so safe and pleasant. I highly recommend Dr. Steinbacher and greatly appreciate his work!

Good afternoon. Approximately 8-10 years ago I had Mohs surgery at Yale. Allison Hanley was my surgeon. The surgery was on my right ear. The spot in question was small (or so we all thought). When Dr Hanley was done, ¼ to 1/3 of my ear was gone. There was no plan ahead, as to what we should do with that much ear gone. I left the Mohs center alone. Driving home I could not think of anything else. I think I was in shock. Dr Hanley took a picture of the damage and asked two surgeons if they were interested. Answer, ‘no’. She contacted Dr Steinbacher. He asked if I could meet him the next day and the rest is history. Fast forward. I was at the same Mohs center for a spot on my right cheek last Tuesday. They saw in my chart that I had been there before. The reason I am writing is because, to a person, they had to ask which ear. What better compliment to Dr Steinbacher? I have told people over the years about my ear and when told which ear it was, they were surprised. G

I have the highest regard for Dr. Steinbacher. He performed surgery on my son to correct a facial abnormality and the results were outstanding. Not only did Dr. Steinbacher successfully correct the underlying issue, he also enhanced my son’s physical appearance with subtle but powerful modifications which added both beauty and symmetry to his face. Dr. Steinbacher is a doctor with vision and I highly recommend him.

Dr. Steinbacher is the absolute greatest surgeon around. He creates results one hundred times better than famous surgeons celebrities use. The techniques and precision of his rare work amazed me. The entire staff is incredibly kind and always trying to achieve the results that you were looking for. If you want a Top of the line, overqualified and overly educated surgeon he is more than fit for you. I will never go to another surgeon or recommend anyone other than Dr. Steinbacher. His work needs

After meeting Dr. Steinbacher, I cancelled the rest of my consultations with other surgeons. I knew from the first time meeting with him that there was no other surgeon who could do the work he does. In my opinion, he is absolutely the best in his field. After my procedure (a bilateral otoplasty), I realized just how much Dr. Steinbacher understands the anatomy of the face. My ears came out perfect, and they really improved my self confidence and daily life!
