Dr. Steingart treated my husband for 6 years. He is an incredible person and Doctor. I asked for a 2nd opinion early on, and he prepared a worksheet for me to take. (Dana Farber). After that appointment, I knew we were in the best hands possible for my husband's condition. D-F praised Dr. Steingart's methods of handling the case. I knew he would be our stabilizer. He was always there for us, answered all our questions and brought us through many crises. Even after my husband past, Dr. Steingart came to say good-bye to his now friend and give me the support I needed. I will never forget the kind ways he treated my husband throughout his illness. I will always be grateful to our Primary Care Physician for recommending such a special caring Oncologist. PS: If you read this: Thank you Dr. Steingart for the work you do so well. I will never forget you. A special "Thank You" from both Bob and I. Take care and Stay Safe.

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, 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.
