The VERY VERY BEST!

I was using a different doctor in his former practice. I had to have a biopsy to see if I had prostate cancer. The doctor I was using had the results of the biopsy the day before Memorial Day weekend. He promised he would call me with the results but left for the holiday and never did. When I called the office anxious and scared, I was able to get Dr. Steckle (who was not my doctor) and he got me the results. He has been my doctor ever since. He is kind, caring and compassionate and very bright. There is not a better doctor!!!
