Very friendly. Dr Stephan is very patient and doesn’t jump to conclusions. Ask questions and answers questions freely. Had a bit of a wait but that was because of his concern for the patient ahead of us the same as he had for us.

I am gettign ready for surgery and thought I would come in to see Dr. Stephan before having the surgery but when I called to schedule, they refused beause they say I owe them 10.00 for them having to write a script that they failed to renew during my last office visit then failed to write correctly, not once, but three times after that.

after making a great deal of effort to be at my appointments on time, there was always an hours wait in the waiting room and another hour in the exam room before seeing the Dr. for less than 15 minutes. This wait time imposed a great hardship and eventually I had to quit this Dr. for that reason.

I have been going to Dr. Stephan for about a year and a half. I have always had a pleasant experience with the staff and they have responded to any requests in a timely manner. While it is true that I always have to wait, I don't mind waiting for a provider who gives me as much time as I need to ask questions and get very good care- a very rare find these days! Dr Stephan is very meticulous and kind. I feel very fortunate to have found him.
