Ocoee, FL |
If I could give a negative star I would. Dr. Steineger was the most unfriendly impersonal doctor I have ever had. He treated me with no sympathy or compassion and got frustrated and mean when I told him the vacuuming of pus from my ear was hurting. He is unprofessional and tried prescribing medication I had marked I was allergic to. He didn't try other options or explore the fact I may have a bigger infection. He just asked what I wanted him to do. I wanted him to do his job as a specialist.

Dr. Steiniger is an excellent doctor. He was able to figure out what was wrong when so many other doctors couldn't. He has an excellent bedside manner - very friendly and his staff is great as well. He will be doing my surgery and I'm so glad I have a great doctor to do it. Highly recommended!!

Unbelievably BAD!! His office manners and patient care was HORRIBLE. Came in as new patient for a cyst on my tonsil, chronic sore throat and Nasal Spray abuse. When he came in he never looked at my chart, took a 20 sec look at my throat and said I don't see anything. I said I'll put my tongue on the lump....he said I still can't see it..comeback in a week and maybe i can see it then. Have a good day...and walked out. Maybe 2 mins start to finish. $50 dollar co-pay later. NEVER AGAIN!

I am a tonsil cancer survivor who underwent three dilations while living in IL. After moving to FL I was told that ENTs do not do dilations in FL - GI doctors do. When hospitalized I didn't question when a GI doctor was called in to address my aspirating. He did a balloon dilation which failed and strongly suggesting my getting a feeding tube - saying I would be on one for life. One month later Dr. Steiniger did a rigid dilation on me and I was eating within days. I have recommended him already.

From the moment Dr. Steiniger stepped into the room I felt comfortable and confident in his abilities. Never dogmatic, just as though we were in this together, Dr. Steiniger is my kind of MD.

I have been very lucky to have this great physician as my go to MD for the last nine years through tonsil (SCC) CA x 3. I credit him and not the oncologists for the right directions and path. He was 'spot on' and a most wonderful MD!
