About Dr. Steinbook

Philosophy of care

Patient trust through commitment, compassion and knowledge is my goal as a urologist. By creating an environment of comfort, my patients feel they can openly discuss their concerns and symptoms. We work together as a team to fully understand their health care needs and treatment options. Through the years, I have seen many patients on an ongoing basis, and we have developed relationships that go beyond the traditional roles. These relationships have enriched my life.

Why I entered medicine

I have always been a people person, even going back to junior high school when I volunteered to be a big brother to a blind classmate. Medicine seemed to be the best career path to allow me to give of myself, feel fulfilled and to feel that I have left a positive mark on this world.

Community involvement

I have been president of the medical staff at Muhlenberg and a member of its board of trustees. I was also a board member of the Lehigh Valley Physician Hospital Organization. I was awarded by our nurses the physician recognition award through an Lehigh Valley Health Network program called Friends of Nursing. All of these honors have helped me appreciate the importance of teamwork and communication to create the best patient outcome. It is my goal to strive for excellence.

Personal interests

Out of the office, my focus has been my family. I also enjoy traveling and have displayed many pictures from my travels on my office walls. My patient thoroughly enjoy these and they spark much discussion about our outside interests.

Ratings and Reviews

About Our Ratings and Reviews

About our Survey

Our physicians and advanced practice clinicians (CRNPs and PA-Cs) are among the nation's best. That's why we show you patient satisfaction ratings and comments so you can read about and get to know our providers through the eyes of their patients.

To ensure our ratings and comments come only from verified patients, we work with NRC Health, a third-party organization. NRC Health sends patient satisfaction surveys on LVPG's behalf following an office visit or procedure. They ask patients about their impression of the health care provider and the doctor's or advanced practice clinician's communication skills.

What is included in the star rating?

Star ratings are based on a scale of 1-5 stars, 5 being the best. The rating includes responses to these provider-related questions:

  1. Physician Communication Questions
    1. Did this provider give you enough information about your health and treatment?
    2. Did this provider give you easy to understand information about your health questions and concerns?
    3. Did this provider listen carefully to you?
    4. Did this provider seem to know your medical history?
    5. Did you trust this provider with your care?
  2. Overall Provider Rating Question
    1. Using any number from 0 to 10, where 0 is the worst provider possible and 10 is the best provider possible, what number would you use to rate this provider?

Why don't all doctors or advanced practice clinicians have a rating?

In order to have enough data to measure and compare, a health care provider must have at least 30 completed patient satisfaction surveys. Surveys are included for a period of 12 months from submission.
