Very caring provider, very thorough, was able to find the problem with my eye that other Dr. could not.

Dr. Steckel creates a fantastic and pleasant environment for a patient. His willingness to take the time to listen to each patient shows that he is there to care for each person rather than keep an assembly line going. I called on a Friday for an appointment and Dr. Steckel graciously saw me past the 5pm close mark that same day. Dr. Steckel is great at what he does and I would highly recommend him.
