Dr. Eric Steckler does NOT take the time to know his patients or get ALL the facts BEFORE he sends them to a hospital. Once in hospital, Dr. Steckler does not bother to go see them, his own patients, in the hospital "if it was not his turn that week to see his groups' patients in the hospital". In other words, per their group's protocol, another doctor in the group who has never seen Dr. Steckler's patient, stops by. Dr. Steckler did NOT send copies of test results and visits to my PCP.

Woman who is secretary is the rudest person, she is very disrespectful to patients and must be related to doctor somehow as I don't see how anyone would allow their patients to be treated like that. We will change locations so we do not have to deal with her. I work for heart doctors and they would never allow their patients to be spoken to as she speaks. Should be ashamed of herself.

He is a good doctor but his association's billing and administrative staff are quite bad as they insisted in charging me for a co-pay for a visit on a date was out of town. They kept harassing me and would not stop, even when I told them I was out of town on that date and that I had proof I had paid my co-pay for all my visits on the spot.

I scheduled a colonoscopy with Dr. Steckler due to a recurring bout of Diverticulitis. Everything went great until I was awoken in recovery with abdominal pain which concerned me. I asked for my Dr. and was told he had left before I woke in recovery. He immediately told the nurse to call an un-needed ambulance over the telephone. This caused great stress . He should not be able to put people through this type of stress because he cant do his job properly. I NEVER even got a consult!

DR, STECKLER IS VERY WELL TRAINED. HOWEVER HIS BEDSIDE MANNER, EXPLANATION OF ISSUES FOUND AND CLINICAL EXAMINATION IS NOT AT THE LEVEL OF CARE I WOULD EXPECT FROM A MD WITH HIS EXPERIENCE.
