this was my first visit to a family physician since moving to Texas from Ohio. Dr. Steffen is by far the best Dr I have ever been to. She's the first Dr to actually listen to my health concerns and gave me a few ideas to what it could be. She referred me to a cardiologist to check a couple things before ruling the last option bc she didn't want to jump to something without having my heart looked at first. I have had this health problem/concern for the past 14 years and was always told they didn't know what it was and never recommend or referred me to a cardiologist. I gave up on going to the Doctors back in Ohio bc all I got out of my visits were medical bills. I'm very confident I will finally have an answer. I appreciate the time Dr Steffen spent with me and everything she talked to me about. I'm very happy with being scheduled to her.

Everything was just lovely. The one thing that keeps me from giving a 10/10 score is that I did get the sense that the doctor I saw was rushing through the appointment. She was perfectly pleasant and made sure to ask if I had questions, but the rushing did briefly make me wonder how much care she was taking with diagnosing and treating me.
