Verified Patient Reviews
It was all good, but the wait was just too much. I went twice, and every time I had to wait for more than an hour.
It’s been more than a day and the doctor hasn’t sent the prescription to the pharmacy. Their messaging system and emergency line hasn’t helped or done anything at all. Not going back.
Dr. Steingard was very friendly! He takes his time while with you. Would definitely recommend to others.
Outstanding Dr and extremely intelligent. Danielle with him excellent
He's a nice person but my appointment is for 10 am and I waited until 11.
The last several visits have been excellent, no long waiting.
Dr. Steingard is the best. I've been seeing him for over 20 years. We always have GREAT conversations and debates on sports.
He is a very nasty Doctor that need to retire...I don't even know why he still is practicing??
I've taken my family here for 25 years, with the exception of a few years here and there when our insurance changed. The wait time has improved drastically. When my kids were little, it meant a visit took a whole morning, or a whole afternoon or evening. Not any longer, and I can't even say that the in-exam room time has suffered, because it hasn't. I initially chose this practice for its evening hours. They also used to be open on Saturday mornings for sick child visits. My only negative experience today was that a new Rx was ordered for me (at a morning appointment), but it wasn't sent to the pharmacy until near 5 pm. Then it turned out to be something requiring prior authorization. So since tomorrow is Friday, I probably won't have the new med until next week.
Steingard has been my primary doctor since 1990. Even though I had not seen him in a few years , then finally did a few weeks ago. He always has a good bedside manner. He always looks out for your well being. He had Concerns about my health issues and I was admitted to the hospital and he was there every day to see me.
He didn't seem to really care about any of my needs as a patient, and took an extremely long time to get to me. I would no recomend this place to anyone looking serious "care". He was reluctant to answer questions about the medication he was prescribing me. Very unprofessional.
I have been going to Dr. Steingard and Dr. Testa for over 20 years, so I am always pleased with their service.
Very good doctor as far as I can tell don't know him many years like my past doctors I've had in my life. Seems in tune with what your aliments are to me. Good that he does question the patient which is important to me.
Dr. Joseph Steingard is the best physician in the world. He has treated me since I was born and as I have fallen very ill with a severe Digestive Disease as an adult, he had saved my life on numerous occasions. Dr. Steingard never fails to give his all to his patients. He continuously and wholeheartedly dedicates his life to ensuring the health and safety of those who see him. His professionalism and bedside manner are unique in the way that unlike many doctors, he makes you feel welcomed and calm during what can be a scary time. He treats his patients like family and for this, I am grateful. Dr. Steingard is the elite, the best of the best. I am confident that without his care and concern, I would not be here today. I highly recommend him to others. If you are looking for a doctor who is kind, thorough, and goodhearted, than this is your guy. He is knowledgeable in his field and will stop at nothing to ensure that whatever is ailing you is quickly eradicated. Doctor Steingard is amazing, without a doubt, a class act. I am blessed, honored, and proud to be his patient.
This Doctor is very knowledgeable and cares. The staff is hard working and gets things done. Very pleased with the choice I made!
We love him. Would highly recommend him
If you have a lot of free time and don't take your health seriously I recommend you visit his office, otherwise go somewhere they care about their patients.
Overall great experience!
Very nice doctor and office staff.
Dr. Steingard is the most cheerfully excellent, attentive Doctors I've ever encountered. I actually look forward to my visits. He never rushes, he takes the time to listen and explain things. He actually wants to follow-up after initial appointments and remembers your history.
The doctor was very professional yet personable. I would highly recommend him.
great doc ...location....desk staff.....WHO CARE simple
He was rude and the office staff are nice the ones in the front of office the nurse that takes care of you in the back are rude as ND the Dr would not listen to me
I would recommend Dr. Steingard to anyone in need of a PCP! Love him!
I've known Dr Steingard for over 30 years and he has taken the best care of me and my family for that time. He is not only personable, he cares about his patience and provides them with the highest quality of care. Him and his staff are always helpful. I would only trust my and my families care to be under the direction of Dr. Steingard!!!
I probably didn't need to see the Dr. In order to receive test results and thus pay an extra copay for an office visit. Aside from that Dr. Steinguard has been my family and lifelong M.D. for over 50_years. He is a top doc!
Time with your doctor is precious. Dr Steingard & staff helps you get the most out of your appointments for the best possible care.
I was so grateful to get a very last-minute appointment while the pope was in town! Great office
I have been his patient for over ten years. He was recommended to me when I had first moved to Philadelphia for primary care. He and I have built a relationship over the years and he has taken the time to listen to my health problems before writing a script or just giving me a bill. He might take longer compared to other MD's in order to do this which results in a longer wait time before seeing him. He is old school and actually cares. His PA is lovely also. Cares about her patients, has recent medical knowledge and so she catches little things Steingard may have missed. They make a great team. I'll endure the wait in order to get the correct information when it comes to my health.
VERY HELPFUL AND KIND HE KNOWS EVERY THING ABOUT ME MY DR VISITS always GO SMOOTHLY. THANKS DR. STEINGARD.
Excelent Dr. That is always there when I need him he has been my doctor since I was 19 and today I'm 45 years old
I like Dr Steingard but I am still in as much pain as I was in before I went to him so I think my visit to him was a waste of my time and money
Very well mannered. Honest also.
My visit with Dr. Steingard on July 16, 2015 was very good. The staff provided EKG procedures to further diagnose my concerns. After that I was referred to further testing immediately and was seen right away ( less than 5 minute waiting). This visit as all of my visits are taken seriously and I am given the attention I feel my concerns deserve. A+ to the staff. Today everything was above and beyond what I expected. It was great.
Dr Steingard took the time and ask various questions prior to the examination. He examined and provided his diagnosis. Dr Steingard stated that if my condition did not start to improve or worsen to call over the weekend. Regardless he wants me to call on Tuesday and provide an update and have a follow up appointment in 2 weeks. Dr Steingard cares about his patients. The entire staff cares about their patients and ask about other family members.
Not only is he a doctor but he is also a psychiatrist and shows concern about your emoitonal state of mind before prescribing something without making sure he knows your background. Many doctors do not form somewhat of a personal relationship with their patients and it is important to know the burdens of someones lifestyle to better understand what will work for them best. This doctor cares, there is admiration and much trust, which is very important when medical supervision is involved. I feel like he is truly working to help people and not just in it for the buck.
He was friendly and cared. I appreciated his expertise and demeanor. Wonderful experience overall!
Very good except didn't answer questions I did ask of a test I had taken prev sent for by his assistant.?
I was very sick and I walked in. They graciously put me on the schedule. Dr Steingard and his PA Ashley are very easy to talk to and they helped me tremendously. Diane Saggio
the way healthcare and professionalism should be run
Great as alwsys.
Good, quick, and efficient. Doctor seems to really care about each patient. I would recommend.
I felt very comfortable and was thrilled with the service.
My visit was pleasant, my concerns were answered in regards to my medical issues.
Great!! I love my doctor, my children grew up going to Dr. Steingard, they now 25, 24, and 18. Don't feel comfortable no where else.
He was fantastic! Very friendly and easy to talk to. I am very happy that I finally found a doctor I feel comfortable with!
Always pleasant and helpful. He goes out of his way to make you feel better. Great Doc.
I especially like how he worked with his intern. The intern was a very nice doctor (if that is the right word!?) and Dr. Steingard empowered her in applying her skills when treating me. She was also very patient with me as she wrote down notes for me to make sure we did not miscommunicate.
Everything was excellent from setting up appointment on line to being taken to an exam room as soon I get there.
Dr. S is good in an old school way. Takes time with you. Staff could use some work though. Slow and unprofessional.
I have been going to se Doctor Steingard for quite a while and enjoy my appointments with him.
Very nice guy. Mixes in humor really well and seems knowledgeable. The lady in the front Lisa was very nice as well. I'm very happy with my new Primary Dr decision.
Love him. Very knowledgeable and wonderful at putting people at ease.
I always have a wonderful and pleasant feeling when I walk into his office. .
Went awesome very nice Dr and nice people all around great place
My children and I had an excellent appointment with Dr.Steingard. He was able to exam and answer all our questions regarding treatment and medicine as well as give us the best medicine of all, laughter and smile at the end of our appointment. The only problems we had was our insurance 's company messing up on their protocol & policies causing delays and red tape for the doctor.
I always look forward to seeing Dr. Steingard. His care and jokes go a long way . he's never on time but I'm not great on time either so to me its not a huge issue . he always has a genuine sense of care and treats ailments as needed without over drugging or over doing anything which makes me like the way he regards medicine . if you want jokes smiles and care you need nothing over done then he's the best pick of a doctor and his staff are just as amazing . Lisa the receptionist is always kind and remembers each of us patients and the back nurse I forget her name draws blood perfectly . I truly love this practice and all the staff :)
Best experience i've had in a doctor's office.
It was a good vist thank you.
Dr.steinguard and his excellent staff are more than just my primary care office.the dr has given me not only top notch medical care but has given me lofe advice that no other person has,advice thats honest.i rremember i said thank.you to him and he commented,"im not just your doctor,im.your friend"
I was seen by Ashley and she was wonderful, I will follow her instructions as suggested. my follow up is in 3 months.
Ashley & her assistant were very helpful and very friendly and made me feel very comfortable.
Outstanding experience! Hate going to see Doctors:( doc listened to me and helped far more than any doc has in the past . I will continue to see him for all my medical needs!
Dr.Steingard was very welcoming, funny, and understanding! The staff was bubbly and polite, and patient!
Excellent doctor. Makes you feel welcomed.
staff is on point
his office staff was especially incompetent, slow, rude and utterly not customer (patient) focused. I walked outside to call office and was put on hold for 20 minutes. You are more likely to die in the waiting room then actually see a doctor.
All the receptionist were so nice and engaging. The wait time was a bit long, considering I was very sick but once Dr. Steingard got in he was a calming, insightful man. I definitely recommend seeing him!
