Dr. Steck answered all of my questions, gave me a treatment plan, and got me in and out of the office in under 30 minutes. Highly recommend. I'm a physician.

Dr Steck allows the residents to perform your surgery. He performs operations the old way with huge incisions. He's one of the worst neurological surgeons in the country
