    • Patient Review

      This was excellent. I had a question for Dr. Steiner, and he explained to me exactly what I needed to know.
    • Patient Review

      I always feel as though the visits are rushed so I'm not sure why the wait is always so long.
    • Patient Review

      I felt that the doctor didn't take me seriously. I am having trouble with losing weight even after the surgery. I log my calories, protein and carbs. I exercise for over an hour, 4 days a week. The doctor said, start logging food, I said I did. He said exercise more, which he told me to the last time in May and I went from 3 days to 4 days that time. I felt like the was blaming me for not losing, when I believe It Is something else. I asked another question and he said, that doesn't pertain to the bariatric surgery. He spend all of 5 minutes in the room.
