My primary doctor kept prescribing antibiotics for a chronic sinus condition so I decided to make an appointment with Dr. Steiniger. He immediately sent me for a CT scan, which led to surgery and chemotherapy for lymphoma. I am so thankful to Dr. Steiniger for his part in saving my life. He is the BEST!

I had severe ear pain. My Primary care doctor, Urgent Care Clinic, Emergency Room, and Dentist all told me nothing was wrong! Finally was referred to Dr. Steiniger who saw me within an hour of calling and explaining the situation! He found shingles in my ear! Thanks to Dr. Steiniger, after 11 days of pain and no answers, I was treated with care and respect! 2 days later I was pain free and now in full recovery. My family and friends will all be referred to this wonderful, compassionate, knowled

My first visit with Dr. Steiniger. He was very pleasant and easy to talk to. He took the time to explain the problem and the procedure to treat my ears. I would definitely recommend him.

After years with another local ENT group with zero help (basically saying you are old, you can't hear, get used to it) I went to Dr. Steiniger. He put me on 2 weeks antibiotic treatment for the massive infection and at the second visit, suggested surgery...the surgery was yesterday. Immediately in recovery, I could hear again. Dr removed granular tissue from the eardrum plus an old embedded tube and drained fluid from the middle ear. My previous ENT never saw any problem. God bless Dr. Steiniger

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!
