I would not let this woman treat my cat. On September 4, 2013 I woke up with anal bleeding, and waited until her office opened at 8:30 to speak to someone about my situation. A receptionist told me someone would call back immediately. An hour later I called back and talked to a nurse, and she said she would get a message to Dr. Steephen. This was 9:30 am---at 11:00 no one had returned my call. At 11:45 I called again, and was told that Dr. Steephen had not checked in, and if I felt like this was an emergency, I could check in at the hospital emergency room. Still not knowing what to do, I called back at 1:00 pm and talked to the nurse again, according to her Dr. Steephen still had not contacted her office for messages, I'm calling BS on this, no Doctor would be that unprofessional to not be in contact with their office for more than 5-6 hours. Finally, I checked myself in to emergency, after finally hearing from the nurse at around 1:30 pm, she told us to go to emergency because they would not be able to schedule an office visit for more than a week. Needless to say, I will never use this quack again. The only reason I give her 1 star, is there is no lower choices.

During a very difficult Dr. Steephen was the best Dr. that I have ever dealt with and ever expect to deal with. She was the most personable and honest professional! Caring, profession, considerate, honest, understanding - there is noting that I can say that means as much to her as she did to me and my family. Thank you Dr. Steephen - Mrs. Clyde Eugene Seley

Does not listen to you. Has already decided what she wants to do (anyway she can get more money). Does not read tests sent to her from other doctors. NO bedside manner whatsoever. Rude and incompetent. I could go on and on and on

I've worked with Dr. Steephen and 3 other doctors tied into her practice. I would highly recommend the other doctors but Dr. Steephen was rude and condescending. I've never disliked a healthcare professional more. Outside of her practice I very much like Dr. Barry Sanders in Lewisville. Anyone but her!

Back in March was the first time that I used Doctor Anita Steephen's she was recommended to me by a friend. She was awesome, and I will be using her again.

I went to Dr Steephen after getting a referral from my primary care physician. She was prompt in meeting with me and explaining about the next step which is to have a colonoscopy done. I highly recommend Dr Steephen to new patients.ThanksJoey

I had a colonoscopy done by Dr Anita Steephen couple of weeks ago.During the initial visit, she was very courteous, polite and informative. She explained the procedure and the risks associated with it. Then, I had the procedure done at the Lewisville Surgery Center which was veri nice with the state of the art equipments. It was a breeze!!! Dr Steephen's nurse called me that night after the surgery to see how I was doing. I will recommend any one to Dr Steephen for any gastroenterology pocedures. Actually, my boss is scheduled for a colonoscopy next week.

I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS DOCTOR TO ANYONE. I have to totally agree with Amy M in regards to Dr Anita Steephen mannerisms. She is rude. She is uncompassionate. Furthermore, she is most concerned about whether your insurance company is worthy of her "expertise" first and foremost, before she wastes her time with her patient's actual issues or concerns. As an American soldier, I by default receive Tri-Care Prime Remote insurance. She referred to me a "one of them"… meaning a Tri-Care Prime Remote patient. (Fact: Tri-Care Prime Remote has had a history at times of not paying on time… but they do pay it, it's a good company, and after all of my personal medical requirements (Which has been a lot… use your imagination)… I have absolutely no complaints with Tri-Care.) With that being said, she treated me and my wife (Who came for validation purposes) as a second class citizen and I do believe that she turned her cheek to me and my issue the moment her admin handed her the initial folder!!! I have a serious bowel issue. Of the 3 appointments consisting of a 40 min wait in the room itself and a maximum of 5 minutes of her time each, I was finally told that my test shows me to be "normal" and that she exhausted her experience on me. Again, I SO DO NOT BELIEVE THAT SHE WAS CONCERNED IN THE FIRST PLACE!! She did recommend a drug and a second opinion for me. Again, she immediately said that it would not work because the drug and the recommended doctor did not accept Tri-Care Prime Remote. Fact of the matter is that any insurance company is open to accept any doctor providing that the doctor approves it initial. I know… I have become an expert at insurance manipulation now.

Dr. Anita Steephen is the rudest most uncompassionate person I have ever met. She treated me terribly for something that was not my fault. I would not recommend Dr. Steephan as a doctor. She has no empathy, no sincerity, and no tact. I would recommend tha
