"Dr. Steinversal is a one of a kind doctor. My son died suddenly seven years ago. I had been scheduled for knee surgery, but obviously had to cancel. A few months later I rescheduled the knee surgery and met with Dr. Steinversal for the pre-surgical consultation. He was so genuinely warm, caring and listened as I spoke about my son's sudden death ( he died of complications of ulcerative colitis related to the heart). He answered my questions, which were totally unrelated to my upcoming surgery. He is truly a gifted doctor and one of a kind."

"Dr. Steinvurzel is an exemplary orthopedic practitioner. His bedside manner is refreshingly unique among the other doctors with whom I have had contact. He is a sincere listener to patient input and feedback. His surgical skills are second to none, to which I can attest having had three total joint replacements done by Dr. S within the past 2 years. The incision scars are virtually invisible. In summary, this physician should be a highly prized employee of Northwell and a valued educator in the Adelphi academic program !"
