      Dr. Steffen may be a good surgeon but his coordinating assistant is difficult to work with .,..She never returned calls , or she answered questions by saying "I'll get back to you on that" . The surgery scheduling was so screwed up, I still received calls by the OR staff regarding pre op approval a month after my wife had surgery by another Dr. If you can deal with Dr. Steffen's assistant , it may be wothwhile seeing Dr. Steffen. He seemed very competent.

      Dr Steffen great doctor he know exactly where my pain is & gets it right every time. But certain staff are rude. My last injection was August 2014 and in the beginning of the new year I called for to set another injection & several times after, no answer. After 6 months calling & hurting & upset.Finally got a message that a staff member that was suppose to take care of this area was let go.I have the message saved. waited again & called again. Long story to explain, Got referral once. WAITING!!!
