What People Say About Dr. Richard Steingart, MD

I highly recommend Dr. Steingart. On my initial visit with him he spent so much time explaining my condition which is fairly complicated. He even drew pictures explaining my condition on a large sheet of paper while answering all my questions. He recommended appropriate bloodwork for me. He said he would call me in the evening with results and he did. He recommended a procedure to take and again called me in the evening with the results. I am so glad to be his patient. He is a wonderful doctor.

Dr Steingart is a compassionate physician dedicated to the care of each of his patients. He will contact you personally with results of lab work or tests. I highly recommend him to others in need of his speciality.

Dr. Steingart, he often rushes me off the phone or out of the appointment. He acts as if he doesn't have the time to deal with me. When speaking to my mother he changes the story. Sometimes it takes days for me to get a prescription or phone call and when you have a chronic illness you don't have days. His staff often interrogates me which makes me uncomfortable. I am going to consider changing hematologist. My health is too important for this carelessness.

he barely spent a minute with me. Was backing away, answering questions curtly at the end. Got no answers. I am very sick and really need help. This is not a man who can do that, at least for me.
