I heard that this doctor is the best performing an RPLND surgery, I will never recommend him for such surgery to anyone; I had to suffer after he performed an open RPLND surgery for me and did a partial surgery instead of a full surgery to make it easy for him. He does not have the expertise of performing a laparoscopic based RPLND surgery. I am in a bad situation since after this surgery and the pain does not go away at all since more than 6 months. He does not care about the patients after the surgery and never listen to their concerns and questions, and he spends less time writing proper reports for the patients. I had to travel for a 16 hours flight to stay in Boston for 6 months with the expectation that I will receive the best treatment. Once the surgery is done there is no go back, so never be tricked with the good reviews you see about him

Dr Steele may be very knowledgeable and experienced. But I found him to be condescending, hurried, and unwilling to really listen to what I was saying about the symptoms that were unique to me. He had a one size fits all approach that was very inappropriate for my complicated condition. Very disappointing. And the office is very hard to reach by phone. And when you do each them, messages are often never returned for days if at all. Frustrating, and you get sicker. There’s got to be better than him.

Dr. Steele was kind, professional and explained the issues well. He took time to listen. He ordered additional tests which saved me from undergoing needless surgery.

Dr Steele has been my Urologist for over five years. He’s an excellent doctor and surgeon. He makes time to listen to what’s going on, is extremely perceptive, and keeps on top of what’s happening with me, and whats going on with me outside of his practice. When there’s been anything requiring a timely visit the practice always fits me in. His diagnoses have been right on, and I feel I’m getting excellent care being his patient. When I needed prostate surgery he explained clearly what would be i

Dr. Steele is the utmost professional yet is also quite personable too. He has responded quickly (even on weekends) and goes above the average support for a patient when needed. His explanations were clear and even provided drawings to explain things visually.

Very unhappy with the way you are treated from Dr. Steel's staff. NO ONE THERE HAS ANY SENSE OF URGENCY!!!! My family member is a patient of Dr. Steele's & he's had several issues, has been to the ER many times, his staff won't even discuss anything with you as they state "It's above their pay grade". If you call to try & get in to see him you will most likely have to leave a message & hope someone calls you back within a day or two. Appts are usually booked a couple months out, not matter what!

I was referred to Dr Steele by a urologist at MGH for my surgical treatment of incontinence after robotic prostatectomy at another hospital and doctors. I find Dr Steele very knowledgeable, professional, confident, and assuring and would rate him four out of five stars. However, the reason for the three star rating is due primarily to the poor performace of his office team/staff in terms of scheduling appointments, waiting room management, and call back inadequacy.
