Dr Stieg operated on me in April of 2021. He and his staff have been A plus from initial consult 2.5 years ago, throughout my surgical and post up experience and as recent as 2 days ago at my 3 month post op visit. Dr. Stieg is honest, straight forward, patient, compassionate and most importantly an extremely skilled surgeon.

If you legitimately want brain damage he’s the man for you he’ll destroy your brain Lie about it and tell you that he did the surgery when in fact it was residents he’s an evil evil money grubbing man. Don’t ever expect a phone call back after he’s been paid by the insurance company that’s his modus operandi
