I had Bariatric surgery in Mexico. I needed to follow-up with a dr here. I called and asked if they were taking new patients and the lady was cheerful and said "Yes we are. What is your issue". I told her and she immediately changed tone and said they were booked out a month. And she pretty much said go to Nashville. She asked what insurance I had, not who was going to pay. I don't think Dr. Steeley's staff was very professional.
Dr. Steely is one of the nicest and sweetest men will ever have the pleasure of meeting. A lot of doctors are hard to talk with and don't want to take the time to understand what is going on or even act as if they care. Dr. Steely will never presume to know what is wrong with you without sending you for test and if he doesn't get the answer he is looking for you will get more test. But, you can always be assured he is going be with you every step of the way, from figuring out the problem, having surgery (if needed) for the issue, and the healing process. He's been around a long time, he has the best skills of any surgeon I have even had the opportunity of having to deal with, not many doctors have any bedside manners or they have those of a rattlesnake, he will always answer you questions precisely, honestly and with kindness. He has a good heart and will treat you and your family with the upmost respect. While some doctors may get thick skinned to their patients and some even want to close their hearts, this is one doc that will always be ready to listen with his head and his heart.
