Stepteau mistrusts his own patients. He will cut you off without an explanation.

Dr. Stepteau is compassionate and hears his patient's experience of pain. He follows the mantra of treating the patient not the picture with regard to what can be determined from scans versus listening to the patient. His treatments were well justified and explained with clear and realistic expectations for outcomes. His ability to perform procedures under general anesthesia in a hospital was a relief from previous experiences having to undergo them conscious in an office setting

Literally shocked! After waiting 1 hr 50 min, I learned Sr. Steptea needed to postpone appointment as he needed more info from previous Dr. Of course, I didn't get reimbursed the $130.00 for the appointment. Today, I learned that Dr. Torrene James Stepteau billed my Insurance company for $822.15. After the Ins adjustments, I still have to come out of pocket for $340.61. Is this not criminal?

I have never encountered such an unprofessional office in my life. They won’t return phone calls, they change appointment times at the last minute, and they just flat out lie about getting approval from insurance companies. Stay as far away from them as possible

Impossible to schedule an appointment. Have left multiple messages. The person scheduling appointments has never once picked up the phone during normal business hours. After 10 minutes of Spanish guitar music I'm directed to an entirely useless voice mailbox. I've been in tremendous pain for the 17 days now I've been trying to get them to act with a modicum of professionalism. Can't even go elsewhere, because this is the insurance referral. Terrible.

Dr. is Stepteau an excellent provider. He listens to me when we speak, he never talks down to me and he treats me like a friend and not just another patient. He has performed many surgical procedures on me and I always feel safe in his care. He also takes the time to talk to my wife after a procedure, letting her now how it went and reassures her. I am very pleased and feel truly blessed that I found him.
