Dr. Steinhaus is a really good breast care specialist! Very thorough, hard working with a great sensor of humor engraved with dedication! Thanks for taking good care of me during my recent surgery Dr. Steinhaus! Congratulations again on providing 30 years of service to the medical field. God bless! Mildred Batts Patient

Dr. Steinhaus is knowledgeable, caring, upfront & forthright, with great skills. I would not consider going to anyone else for breast care or breast surgery. I believe she & my oncologist saved my life. I am a breast cancer survivor.

Dr. Steinhaus is an excellent Surgeon. In addition to her superior surgery skills, she is very helpful in guiding me in making various important decisions. I have had quite a few appointments in both her offices. The waiting time varies but the quality of service is always excellent.

A tremendous surgeon. I likened her approach to surgery to that of a 4-star general and that's what you want in a surgeon. She willingly answers questions thoroughly and effectively evaluates your personal situation and preferences to help determine the best course of treatment for you. Two downsides: 1) the office wait time is horrendous - 4 hours/visit is common; and 2) ability to communicate outside of a doctor visit is difficult. They expect you to be at their beckoned call.

Dr. Steinhaus is a brilliant and gifted surgeon, one of the very best (probably the best) in Atlanta and beyond. She is also the most caring and warm doctor. She is very thorough and her office even has an MRI and other machines in-house that most breast doctors send you to a hospital for. So organized! She gives direct answers when I ask and explains everything completely. Her entire staff is so friendly and kind as well. My wait times have been quite reasonable. Highly, highly recommend!

I LOVE Dr. S & so does my mom - yes, we both had breast cancer 11 ys. apart. Mom is doing great & I could not be more pleased either! She is brilliant & an amazing surgeon. She's so sweet & warm & takes time to answer ALL my questions (& I have had a lot! ) with the latest research. She is among the best in the US. I'd really be skeptical of that neg. review below. You might have to wait 30 min or so bc she's IN SURGERY & VERY PRECISE, which I appreciate having just had a double mastect.

Waited 4 hours to see her. I did not get a clear directive for next steps with a suspicious finding. I waited 2 weeks to receive a written report after 2 phone calls to her office to follow up. Nothing was entered into my patient portal in those weeks. When I received a form letter summarizing her notes, her comments were not as I remembered. And still no directive in writing. 45 days later I received a form letter terminating me as her patient for not complying to a directive I never received

Dr Steinhaus is an incredible breast surgeon. Extremely personable, highly knowledgeable, and so supportive. So rare these days. Highly recommend her!
