After 2 surgeries with another physician my primary care doctor referred me to Dr. Steele. He immediately knew how to correct my problems. He checks all the boxes. He is smart, personable, respectful, has that robot thing going on and he’s mad handsome. I would happily recommend him to anyone having any of the conditions he treats. Thank you Dr. Steele.

Dr. Justin Steele, forget the frat boy good looks, the "aw shucks demeanor", Dr. Steele is the best. He did things to my my abdominal walls that I didn't think possible. He fixed surgeries that had left me in constant pain and depressed. Dr. Steele didn't just fix me physically, he fixed me mentally. He gave me a chance to be myself again. I will forever be grateful that I was lucky to have him as a surgeon.

After my surgery wound never fully healed. Took only a small piece of mesh out. I still have infected mesh inside me. He saw me 2 times after with no solution. Ask for paper work to be filled out for my job. His assistant said she would fill them out. She Then called my wife later saying they wont fill the papers out. I feel like he did a halfway surgery & was scared to do the full job. After Dr. Steele's surgery I'm still leaking from my stomach & still have infected mesh in my stomach that will remain inside of my stomach for the rest of my life.

There aren't enough words to express our thanks to Dr. Steele for his skills and care of my husband. Another surgeon had done an emergency surgery on my husband and created an ostomy, which in turn created a triple hernia situation.. Needless to say, my husband's health and general life were severely affected. It took two surgeons to give my husband back quality of life and health. Dr. Steele took care of the hernia's and another surgeon took care of the ostomy. We 100% recommend Dr. Steele.

An unexpected, rapid case of appendicitis led me to the ER, where I eventually met Dr. Steele, who performed an appendectomy. He and his team were amazing: informing me throughout each stage of treatment, managing my pain and ultimately performing a successful surgery. Post-surgery follow-up visit with Dr. Steele was an equally informative, pleasant experience.

Dr. Steele removed my gallbladder a little over a month ago. He was amazing from my first consultation to the post surgery appointment. He is personable, funny and very professional. I never expected a surgeon to take the time to answer all my questions. Dr. Steele never pushed surgery on me, he advised me on how better I would feel when I no longer had gallstones. Dr. Steele is the best doctor I have encountered in NYC. Since having the surgery I feel 100 times better! Thank you Dr. Steele!

It is hard to find enough superlatives to describe the care I received from Dr. Steele and his staff during my recent hernia treatment and subsequent surgery. From the minute I met Dr. Steel it was evident that he was extremely competent and caring. He laid out the treatment procedures and told me what I could expect. The team that ushered me through the surgery and recovery could not have been nicer or more caring. Thank you so much for taking such loving care of me. I am grateful! FP

I recently had a inguinal hernia repair, (bilateral), and it was accomplished by way of laparoscopic surgery using mesh. It was my very first surgery and I was subconsciously nervous, even though I did my best to act matter of fact and routine about it. I'm a former medical student, who changed careers many years ago to come to NY and pursue the arts, so knowing more about a lot of this, made it worse for me, when it should have made it better. Dr. Steele was simply the best!! ALL AROUND BEST!

I was very pleased with Dr. Steele from the first appt. He did not rush to get me to the table. He made sure with other additional testing that my procedure was necessary for my condition. I had been suffering from chronic Acid Reflux for years. now, a Hiatial Hernia was making my condition worse and causing new symptoms. Afraid of further consequences, I seeked out Dr.Steele's aid. I am currently post op 5 weeks, just had my Upper GI done this week and NO MORE REFLUX!!! I highly recommend him.

Great surgeon to deal with. Made me feel comfortable the entire process. I had no doubt I was going to be ok. Checked on me after the operation and just always was honest about what was going on. You could tell that he had 100 percent assurance that nothing would go wrong. Sitting in the office waiting for my follow up I even recommended to someone else in the waiting room that Dr. Steele is the man to see. I hope I don't need any more surgeries but if I do I know who to call.

I had hernia surgery as an outpatient on November 9, 2016 and my outcome has been excellent. My problem appears to be corrected with remarkably little discomfort or downtime. The doctor explains well, fields questions and shows respect. His staff is attentive and warm. The experience could not have been better.
