Are you a patient of Douglas S. Steinbrech, MD?
Amazingly talented, perfectionist, methodical, highly knowledgeable, compassionate and approachable. Such a pleasure to deal with as a physician and person in general.
He was great. Down to earth, informative. Funny. Very professional. Talented.
He was personable, very educational, helpful. Felt very comfortable.
Before coming across Dr. Steinbrech via this site, I was considering going to Costa Rica for my abdominoplasty. All doctors that I contacted said that they weren't willing to do the surgery because of how invasive the procedure is. Thank goodness for this because I would never have met Dr. Steinbrech and his wonderful team of professionals. My consultation lasted about 2 hours and was informative from the moment I sat down. All involved were genuine and this left such an impression on me such that I when I left, I knew that I wanted to move forward with Dr. Steinbrech.He took the time to explain that, in my specific situation, I would need to continue to eat right and exercise and that we would do this as a team (he will hold me accountable). Following my surgery, the nurses, patient advisor, practice manager were supportive, responsive, and positive. They, including Dr. Steinbrech, responded to my concerns as soon as possible. I'm 7 weeks post op and can confidently say that Dr. Steinbrech is truly skilled. Although I'm still swollen, my incision looks fantastic and my belly button is uber-cute! I haven't had any noteworthy complications thus far and I'm full steam ahead to continued recovery and additional weight loss.
Dr Steinbrech was calm and courteous. His relaxed nature put me at ease. The procedure lasted about 25 minutes. Dr Steinbrech informed me that the initial fullness from the fluid injected would only last a few days and he was right - by the end of the weekend my face was back to normal.
My Dermatologist referred me. They're very knowledgeable, definitely listened to my concerns and issues as far as what I wanted to get out of it. I was active two days later, but completely normal a week after. I think he hit it on the head with my results and recommend him to anyone.
Dr. Steinbrech came so highly recommended and I liked him so much when I met him that I didn’t feel there was a need to go any further. He spent a lot of time with me in the beginning going through everything and answering questions. He and his staff were so good about walking me through everything and telling me exactly what was going to happen with the tummy tuck and breast augmentation. Dr. Steinbrech laughed when I told him that I had a root canal the week after my surgery and it was more painful to recover from that than it was to recover from the surgery with him. I didn’t even have to take the pain killers, just the over-the-counter Tylenol. I stayed the night in a hotel nearby him after the surgery and had a nurse come to me in the hotel for a few hours to check up on me. I have no reservations about recommending him.
I would rate Dr. Steinbrech a 10 out of 5 if I could. Everybody has trepidations about doing surgery, but when it comes to professionals such as Dr. Steinbrech, it puts your mind and ease and you have to just go ahead and do it. I looked at the work he has done prior to my blepharoplasty and I said, “That’s it. I have faith in you and I’m going to have it done.” Everybody looks at me and asks me who did this to me. I would rate Dr. Steinbrech a 10 out of 5 if I could.
