Alright, but not great

She seems nice enough, but pales in comparison to the Rheumatologist I had in another state. She is friendly but sort of downplays your complaints. The hospital itself is not a ncie facility. The staff are not friendly and I would even say they are rude.I recently thought this is not the place I want to deal with if I got really sick, and so will be searching for a new doctor.

Does not belong on Washingtonian top doctors list

I saw Dr. Steen several times over a 2 or 3 year period. My first impression of her was fine. On every subsequent visit, however, she repeatedly demonstrated that she was unorganized (misplaced my test results every single time) and not really concerned with finding a diagnosis for me. She failed to run simple tests that would give us more information until I was in her care for over 2 years, she ordered the wrong tests, and when she misplaced the test results she did not bother to find them while I was still in her office. Additionally, I requested copies of my records from her office and Dr. Steen herself on at least 4 ocassions (and even filled out a consent form), but never received my records. I have no intention of returning to her care.
