About Me

After having earned my Ph.D. in Neuroscience, I became fascinated by the intricacies and processes of the central nervous system, and the role a neurosurgeon plays in tracing them. I realized that neurosurgeons are responsible for far more than surgi...

Dr. Philip Stieg put me at ease from the first moment that I met him. He spent time getting to know me before discussing my diagnosis and various treatment options. Dr. Stieg was beyond kind, brilliant, compassionate, knowledgeable, and personable. My family and I left Dr. Stieg’s office feeling relieved and reassured. I know that I can reach out to Dr. Stieg and his excellent staff if needed. Dr. Stieg’s podcasts are truly informative and inspirational too.

More than anything else, I was seeking the opinion of a neurosurgeon whose credentials suggested he’d be an outstanding diagnostician. Someone who entered medical school with a doctorate in anatomy and neuroscience, I believed, as did Dr. Stieg, would bring a great wealth of knowledge to his own medical education, training and practice. Dr. Stieg was warm, pleasant, clear, and direct. I appreciated his assessment of things. His staff was was very professional, pleasant and thorough.

I traveled to visit Dr. Stieg because of his knowledge and expertise related to AVM’s. When I met him I felt hopeful and I trust his recommendations. I only wished that he had read my file ahead of my visit, although I still trust him without reservations.

As a patient of Dr. Stieg and his team, I could not have been more fortunate during a challenging time undergoing brain surgery of a large tumor. Never during a scary event in my life like this, did i feel I was in incapable hands, both on a professional level which extended to relatable care and support, from both Dr. Stieg and his team. I can do nothing but be eternally grateful and thankful to be in the hands of a surgeon of his competence, conducting the surgery to perfection.

If you want a doctor who fails to report results of pressure tests on your spinal cord stating to you he has to "look it up" and never does, and never gets back to you, never returns phone calls or emails, you may be happy with Dr Stieg. If you want a doctor who never visits you during your hospitalization, yet marks the hospital record that he consulted with you and your family (probably in order to bill Medicare) you may be happy with Dr Stieg. I say find some one else.

Dr. Stieg is truly outstanding. He's been my surgeon 2x now and both operations (aneurysm clipping) were a huge success! Easy, smooth recoveries too! Both times I was able to leave the hospital 4 days after my surgery and I was back to work & feeling 100% within 3 1/2 weeks of discharge. And I was able to return to full activity (circuit training, weightlifting, etc) approx 8 weeks after both surgeries. I hope you never need brain surgery but if you do Stieg's the best. I highly recommend him.
