As an older woman, while living in Houston I had the same doctors from my early 20's until my 70's at which time I retired and moved to Bryan, TX. Needless to say, I was a little concerned about finding new care providers in my new hometown who would take care of me like my Houston doctors. I feel so lucky to have Dr. Steffens as my GP. I was a little concerned due to our age difference, but Dr. Steffens is very easy to talk to about an older woman's medical issues. I have received excellent care. She deserves a five star rating.
