Dr. Steinman saw our five year old daughter for a finger fracture and was wonderful. She was kind, understanding and made us feel comfortable about the cast, and light sedation for the finger reduction. I'm so glad there are MD's like her out there!

Thank you, Dr. Steinman, for doing surgery and cast for my 5-year-old son's fracture of arm (gross displacement). Although the itch during the first week was difficult, the rest of the healing process is so smooth. So sweet to see my Aaron hug his bear to sleep every night. (The bear was given to Aaron in the emergency ward.) You even wrapped the bear's arm just like my Aaron's arm during the surgery. The injury is much more bearable because of your great and professional care ! And thank you to Stephanie, who bring so much ease in removing the cast, re-casting.. My Aaron became the coolest boy in class with his cast of rainbow colors ! Thank you so much !

Our 11 month old daughter is a patient of Dr. Steinman's. Vivika has bilateral DDH. We are so thankful for the treatment, information and support we have had from Dr. Steinman. It is so reassuring. We have been nothing but impressed by her and the entire Children's staff. She, and her nurse Emily, have been so responsive and caring throughout he whole process. What a blessing!

We have just received the best care imaginable from this surgery team. Our Son Hayden had fractured his femur, and Dr Steinman place two rods down thru the center and Hayden stands a great chance of leading a normal childhood...in twelve weeks or so:-)

When my daughter fractured her arm, we were lucky to have Dr. Steinman as our Doctor. It was the first time we have had any broken bones or had either of our children go thru surgery. Dr. Steinman did a great job explaining the procedures and process. My 5 year old daughter and I both appreciated her positive and pleasant manner. Thank you to her and the team at Children's.
