The office is very professional, clean, and well run. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Dr. Steel is one of my favorite physicians, he is kind and helpful. Explains things clearly, and he takes the time to treat me as a human, not just a patient to get in and get out. He is a great diabetes doctor. I highly recommend him to everyone.
