Have you seen Dr. David A Steinberg?
Medically capable - lacks compassion
A review by a patient that verified they have visited Dr. David A Steinberg - Posted on September 6th, 2017
I've been going to Dr. Steinberg's practice for almost five years. I always ask myself why I go back. Truthful answer: he's close by and so far he's done a decent job taking care of my eyes. However, I've learned to ask his assistants to place the eye numbing drops in my eyes because he is far too rough and yes, as others have said uncaring. I've tried to tell him that he has no bedside manner -- to no avail. Perhaps he's just incapable of understanding and processing how people feel around him because he hasn't changed. And, as others have commented, the staff does seem to be fearful of him, the waiting room is always packed (and freezing), and the office staff are rude. The tech assistants however are very nice, and yes, they seem to work in fear. I feel sorry for them. Perhaps he'll read this and reflect on his manner and the way the office is run. My guess is that he doesn't pay his staff much, and they don't want to lose their jobs. I'm putting down a 3 for spending time w/me, but truthfully the less time the better.
Never seen a more unprofessional doctor in 51 years of my life

He was rude on a call after hours. Hung up on me and told me I disturbed his family hours. I'm in pain. He's rude, uncaring and arrogant It's all about money. He doesn't care. A used car dealer would be nicer. Run do not use him
Go somewhere else. There are many good ophthalmologists to choose from

Was very disappointed by Dr. Steinbergs verbal mistreatment of his assistants and other staff members. This behavior says a lot about him and made me very uncomfortable . Needless to say I won't be returning and feel sorry for the people who work there. You could tell that this was normal treatment and just not a bad day.
BEWARE and Plan four HOURS of time to be wasted.

The Poughkeepsie and Fishkill office that he moves between are clean and kept well. The staff can get to be rude and a pair. To deal with especially with the insurance. Make sue you research your specific companies requirements before coming so that you can properly argue there inconsistencies when the staff tell you that you are not covered, need referrals, or need to pay some ridiculous amounts. Beware of this! Make sure that you also plan accordingly, the doctor is all about money there is always a long wait and a normal visit takes anywhere from an hour to three. They love to stack the waiting game room and move slow. Job security, I guess but very rude! The doctor is knowledgeable but the nonsense that you sometimes have to go through might negate this compeltely. He is straight faced and rather rude with short answers and a non pleasant approach to explaining any questions. A hurry up feeling when meeting goes with him. As well, they rush you in and out of the office area to have you return to the waiting room for a seat. And don't make an early morning appointment because he books for 830 appointments, does an office meeting for 15-20 minutes while you wait then you are lucky to be seen by 915-930. This is reduliculous. Anot 830 appointment should only have a maximum wait of 15 minutes. Good luck and Beware.

Do not go to this eye doctor. He is rude, doesn't wash his hands and he misdiagnosed my husband. All he cares about is money. The staff over books, so you have to wait hours.When you do see the doctor he is nasty and does not even spend time asking questions, Go to anyone else but him!!

Very professional and courteous manner. I would recommend Dr. Steinberg and his staff at the Central New York Eye Center to anyone experiencing problems with their eyes.
An Amazing experience with Dr. David A. Steinberg

I recently was referred to Dr. Steinberg for cataract Surgery. Upon seeing him he informed me about eye implants which could highly improve my nearsightedness. I have worn glasses since I was 10 and now 64. After closely listening to everything he told me, I decided to try the eye implant for the nearsightedness. In only 4 to 5 hours after surgery, I realized I was seeing distance and color like I've never seen before. It is truly amazing. I will have the second eye done in two weeks. Even during the surgery, he explains to you what he is doing. I highly recommend Dr. Steinberg to anyone who needs any kind of eye surgery as I think he is amazing.
Thoroughly great experience

Dr. Steinberg just completed my second cataract surgery, this one with a Toric lens. He is very thorough in explaining the proceedure, and the options (Toric lens, restore), giving the patient the information needed to make an informed decision. The staff at both his office and the Eye Center are courteous and spend as much time as needed to make sure you are well informed and comfortable. If you are considering cataract surgery, I would highly encourage you to have it with Dr. Steinberg.

I was very impressed with Dr. Strinberg. He is thorough and has an excellent bed side manner. He takes the time to explain what is found and what can be done to correct it.He has an excellent staff.

Dr. Steinberg looks at the computer a lot while he is talking with you, but he does get to a point eventually where you feel you have his undivided attention. He does take the time to answer all questions .
