Dr. Wilfred Steinberg's Ratings
I am shocked at all the good reviews of Dr. Steinberg and am very glad others have had better experiences. It has taken me years to get over what he caused me, and in fact my body will never recover fully. At the age of 20 I saw him when I started having some bleeding, and it was found I had low grade dysplasia. He treated me as though I had brought this upon myself and in no uncertain terms, suggested it was as a result of being promiscuous! Which was not true at all, and certainly not his place. I was feeling extremely frightened and vulnerable at the time. Anyway, what I had was very aggressive - and 5 weeks and multiple burning ablations of my cervix later, the next biopsy found that it has progressed to the first stage of cancer. I then had a LEEP scheduled and performed a few weeks after that. Throughout this time, I was also having enormous pain in my pelvic region, which kept me from WALKING, but which didn't seem to have an apparent physical cause. He told me I was making it up. Turns out (I learned after eventually seeking out a naturopath) that it was vulvodynia. On top of all this, I was having scary skin changes and discomfort externally which I raised with him on multiple occasions. He ignored it as actually said it's not important, that the cervix is what matters. Okay... so he left it, and when it was finally biopsied, it came back as stage three vulvar dyplasia! I ended having to go for laser surgery on an enormous area, which was just awful and I wouldn't wish on anyone (imagine being lit on fire down there and it taking months to heal). I am physically and emotionally scarred by all this. It took two years before I received a clean bill of health since that first diagnosis of low grade dysplasia. The stress I was under I am certain made things all the more worse, much of it I feel justified in blaming on him. Even though it has been years since all this, I shudder at the thought of even coming in contact with him again.

Dr Steinberg is a very good doctor. He resolved my issue right away when others could not even give me a diagnosis. But I have to mention that his secretary has horrible phone manners. She speaks in such an arrogant manner as if she is the doctor. It is disgusting.

Dr.Steinberg was so helpful, I had a list of medical problems, and have been bounced around from dr to dr with no help in figuring out what is going on, or solutions to help me recover. He listened to me and my husband (who came as my advocate, not needed with Dr Steinberg) ordered all necessary tests, and made referrals without asking me to go back to my family dr. He basically took care of everything and I believe he will figure out what is going on and how to solve it. An extremely knowledgeable, take charge Dr with a great bedside manor as well. I am very thankful to be seeing him.

Too aggressive with treatment. Rushed. Advised colposcopy with first abnormal Pap smear. Did not take more than 5 minutes to explain procedures and prescribed medication with only a 5 minute consult. Assumes all abnormal Pap smears are HPV related and started conversation by asking if my husband of 30 years may have been unfaithful. Nothing like getting to the point and jumping to conclusions.

Great doctor, and great human being, not only that he is very knowledgeable, but he is great at communicating using the right words and giving the comfort that I needed to me and to my husband as well. Made my painful experience much easier, and really cares. Even though I came back to him after 6 years, he knew my first family doctor, he knew the OB I gave birth with. He knew all my problems from the past and took great care of me while I was at my worst. Great doctor! I had my share of doctors in Toronto, but I cannot say that I will find someone like Dr. Steinberg. Safe, reliable and there for you going behind to make you safe, comfortable and help you go through whatever you need to. He was great with my husband as well, great sense of humor and I cannot thank him enough for helping me not only with my condition but to keep my sanity. Wonderful doctor! A rarity especially here in Toronto!

Dr Steinberg has been my gynecologist for 12 years now. He has amazing bedside manner and is so kind and caring. He makes you feel very comfortable. I have seen him both at St Michael's and at his office. He is very knowledgeable and takes the time to answer any questions you may have. He unfortunately does not operate anymore, but has referred me to a new gynecologist who does as he is pretty sure I will need a small procedure done. I only hope the new doc is half the doctor he is. He has a lot to hold up to after I have been with Dr. Steinberg. He's amazing

He’s so smart & caring, compassionate and thoughtful person. My first time meeting him; don’t know about diagnosis. At this point the only thing really matters to me is that he respects the professional(medical) ethics; a real HUMAN BEING.

I was very uncomfortable with his manner and would not see him again. I found him too familiar.
