this doctor like others take a Hippocratic oath to serve those they care for regardless of their payer source or the situation that caused them to need care. He was cold , rough and his attitude was poor and inappropriate . He should remember the initials after his name ard MD not GOD

I would recommend Dr. Steinfield to family and friends.. He takes the time to understand your pain and works with you to manage it. He has great bedside manner and very easy to talk to.

Very thorough, studied my condition and recommended the best course of treatment. Very learned and compassionate man. Clean office, friendly staff. 5 stars. I recommended him to one of my friends, and she was very satisfied as well.
Wait time is always over an hour. Absolute disgrace. Loud music was blaring from office next to my room. Very unprofessional. I wouldn't go back to this place if someone paid me.

I was a brief patient of Dr.Seinfeld because I kept throwing my back out.I gave him all the info I had on my back due to hardworking and a lot of hard falls.after a few visits I was given an injection in my left knee and he recommended I have an epidural. I was afraid to have that procedure done,but one visit I told him about a accident I was involved in due to domestic violence, he stated and I quoteso you were lying to me about how you injured your back? I told him I was ashamed.
