Dr. Hollstein is great. I had to come from San Luis Obispo to see him a handful of times, but the quality of care easily made the drive worth it. I was hit by a car while on my motorcycle and broke one wrist and had a mangled pinky on the opposite hand that required surgery. Not only did he do a bang-up job in repairing my pinky, he was also excellent in helping me rehab afterwards. I can happily say now that just a few short months later I'm back to full strength. Thanks to the staff as well!

Dr. Hollstien reattached my ruptured quadriceps tendon about 6 weeks ago. He fit me into his very busy schedule, provided me a clear picture of the surgery that he would perform, has been extremely pleasant and easy to talk with, apparently performed the surgery successfully, and has been clear and thorough in each post-operative appointment. He has a very gentle and reassuring manner so I trust him. I think he is a superb doctor and I highly recommend him.

2nd hip replacement by Dr. Steven Hollstien. (1 on each side, not a 'do-over') Perfect work! The skills of an artist, a scientist, an engineer and a physician all rolled into one magnificent orthopedic surgeon.
Castro Valley, CA |
The doctor is nice and knowledgable but every time I go to his office I have to wait over 45 minutes I don't know why they have times if they make you wait so much ??

Dr Hollstein replaced my right hip 3 weeks ago. I'm already walking without a cane. His bed side manner is compassionate and extraordinary. He spent a lot of time with me at my first appointment with him. I have never experienced any need to be in any hospital prior to this procedure. I am having my left hip done in a few months. I am an active 56-year-old woman and with Dr. Hollstein's positive approach I am excited to get my own pain-free life back and get back into joie de vivre!

He's very straight forward which, I appreciate. His assistant is very helpful and makes up for ill-bahaved office staff.
