MJ Turner – Apr 06, 2021
Dr. Steindler is one of the best doctors I have ever met. He is much different then any other doctor I have had, but there is something about him that brought a sense of comfort to me. I was referred to him for pain management after I was diagnosed with a bilateral fracture in my lower back. I saw Dr. Steindler a few times about what options I had for dealing with pain in my back/legs. Every appointment I had with him, he spent at least an hour sitting with my wife and I explaining in detail, what was going on with my body and injury. He is direct, honest and truthful. I eventually opted to get injections in my back to deal with pain and the procedure was much easier than I had originally imagined. And I am a nervous, anxious person in general, and I would not let any other doctor stick a needle in my spine except for Dr. Steindler...that’s how much trust and faith I have in him and his approach to help heel my body.

Mike C. – Aug 14, 2019
I have been seeing Dr. Steindler for just over a year. I find him to be very caring and compassionate. He does not sugar coat anything and is to the point. He has done well by me and I have given his name and phone number to others who are seeking some resolution to their pain. Dr. Steindler has returned my calls himself and is very apologetic when he's running a little late.

I have been a patient of Dr. Steindler for 3+ years for a complex injury of the peripheral nerve. He has been more than understanding. This is a doctor that thinks about how to help you even when you aren’t at an appointment. He goes above and beyond his call of duty as a doctor.

August D'Annibale in Albany, NY – Feb 28, 2018
A complete idiot when it comes to crippling pain. I asked him to refer me to someone who specialized in my conditions, he keeps saying he knows of no one. He is lazy and doesn't feel like doing his job. He is not what I would call a compassionate doctor in anyway shape or form. He needs more education or something

I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Steindler for treatment of back and leg pain. He not only helped to reduce the constant pain and burning running from my back down my leg, allowing me to get much needed sleep, but also is compassionate and understanding about the problems of those suffering from on-going pain. He is willing to listen to his patient and actually does pay attention and addresses the patient's concerns. I have the utmost faith in him as a physician and recommend him without reservation.

Very personable along with being thorough and knowledgeable. He brought me from extreme pain and contemplating a major surgery to being nearly pain free. I am recommending Dr Steindler to any patient needing pain management. Please try it before going into major surgery....You can always have surgery later if needed.

Shireen Van Loan in Port Ewen, NY – Jan 05, 2018
Talks a good game but falls very short. His pain management concoctions of mixed medications, wrong medications and his inability to listen and understand, are lost in his befalled look that he expresses. Not only do you have a greater chance of him hitting a nerve, literally ( happened to me and at least one other that I know of) but he will go out of his way to make it look like it's not his fault. Do yourself a favor, do not put your well being in his hands.

tara in albany – Aug 29, 2016
A very poor example of what a doctor should be. When he was reviewing a MRI with me he disagreed completely with the report, maybe because he was reading a report from 2015 and looking at a x-ray/MRI from 2001, He didn't know the difference until I told him. He messed with my pain meds, including calling the Pharmacy to stop them after 5pm so I couldn't call him back. After leaving him, I ended up having 5 medical procedures done, including 1 operation, ALL which he told me I did not need BEWARE
