In Sept this man brought my son Andon into the world. I was a scared young Cpl in the United States Marine Corps and my wife was afraid even more then me!! The Navy doctors referred us to you. You took all are fear away!! I'm forever in your debt for the love you showed us and have never forgot how gentle you were with my wife and son. I hope to see you and him standing in your lobby in the near future. I hope you remember us!!

Best doctor around. He knows what he’s doing. We had rare very high risk twins and he checked on them everyday I had to live in the hospital for ten weeks. They came here safely and it’s a testament to his great design making skills. I begged him to take me at 32 weeks and he made me wait until 34 weeks and I am so glad he did the babies spent less time in the NICU. He is a funny man once you get to know him. He’s a great doctor and I am so glad we had him.

Don’t bother he’s retiring next month and doesn’t have time to be bothered with the current clients let alone new ones. They schedule unnecessary appointments to bill insurance you’ll be lucky to even see the dr he pawns off the patience on the sweet success program. Find a Dr that cares this place is a joke!

I never got an appointment. I WES REFERRED IN 2015. I WAS PREGNANT WITH SEVERAL HIGH RISK FACTORS. WHEN I CALLED FOR AN APPOINTMENT I WAS TOLD THAT HE WAS NOT ACCEPTING NEW PATIENTS BECAUSE HE WAS ABOUT TO RETIRE. TODAY i learned that he in fact did not retire. I had to travel to Loma Linda for all prenatal care and delivery.

His staff is great and kind but the doctor could have been kinder. Very clean environment and nice ultrasound technology. Ultrasound technician was very friendly and generous with 3d pictures. Front desk staff was also very friendly and tried to comfort me as much as possible.

His diagnosis saved my life as well as he life of my child. He is very good at what he does. Others did not see what he did- and because of that- I am able to write this review today. Thank you Dr. Steiger

Great bedside manner. Followed me closely as I was a high risk pregnancy and treated me and the baby, whereas previous Dr could care less about me. Answered all questions and was very knowledgeable. Bummed he's retiring but I'm done having babies so it doesn't effect me but the valley could use more like him.
