Ratings for Dr. Timothy Steel
Dear Dr. Timothy I wish to extend my utmost appreciation to you and your incredible surgeries you performed on me during 2014. Without any doubt your placement of my shunt on 9/2014 by you quickly generated a belief in me one day I will be able to walk in my family home and I certainly did on November 2014 As a consequence of my recovery I returned to work on limited hours- I am now retired! My drivers license was reinstated in August 2015 Royal Ryde rehabilitation hospital inducted me in their wall of fame in 2016. I have returned to sport including golf swimming walking and running through bush trails. My hobby include mosaics and gardening and a positive return to ongoing computer skills. Music has become a significant part of my life and is my personal growth. In conclusion many of my central coast friends including medico connected locals call me the walking miracle. On a return courtesy visitation to St Vincents the staff staff said to me in 2016, “I thought you were going to die”. This feedback gave me sound quality of where I was back then, and proceeded to a great place in my recovery now. Dr Steel I remember you mentioned in 2014 I would experience a seven year process of continuous improvement and I truly believe in your words. I am “moving forwards “in my ongoing recovery certainly . You will forever have my sincere appreciations Dr Timothy Kind Regatds Paul Davison

I cannot thank not rate Dr Steel highly enough. He’s innovative surgery have given me my life back and for this I’ll be forever grateful. It’s very rare to find a surgeon you feel 100% confident & trust in. His after surgery care is second to none & his staff go above & beyond.
After having migraines for some time, I was told that I had a cyst in my brain that was blocking the flow of my cerebrospinal fluid, which in turn was likely to be the cause of my migraines. Dr. Steel and his team moved quickly to bring me in for surgery, always keeping me informed about what they would be doing, why, and how it would affect me. The cyst was removed successfully and I was alert and able to walk around within a few days. His team met with me almost daily in the hospital ward to assess my progress and to discuss next steps. I really can't thank Dr. Steel and his team enough for their fantastic work.
I have been seeing Dr Steel for around 3-4 years now. I have had 3 spinal surgeries all up. I had a fusion done in 2015. Then that triggered other things lower in my spine. I then had a spinal fusion this February 2018 and it did not help at all. I then had to have another surgery, which was the worst experience of my life and still did not help. Now i have further problems lower down my spine, and severe problems on the right side of my neck that I cannot sleep properly. Not only that. He is a liar. He verbally told myself and my father that if the first surgery did not succeed the 2nd would be free. THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN A RED FLAG TO BEGIN WITH. So the moral to the story is that Dr Steel is not professional in any way form from day one. As his staff are not. I am turning 45 years of age next week. I have had 3 spinal surgeries from Dr Steel and he has just made things worse from a degenerative problem since birth. The last meet up we had with him, he could not explain what was going on and was only there for 15 minutes and pushed my father and I out the door after being an hour late. What type of professionalism is that after having major operations. As far as I am concerned he is a liar and not true to his word and is a terrible person to ever have spinal surgery with. He has ruined my life.
I had a bad neck for years (10) since I injured it at work when a box landed on my head. I tried everything , exercise, physio, chiro and dry needling. I even had laser treatment to the nerves in my neck. It just got worse and worse no matter what I did. Dr Steel found the pain was coming from a damaged disc and replaced it. All the severe pain has gone. I can now work ,exercise and best of all sleep without any discomfort. I'm very happy and wish I'd seen him sooner.
Dr Steel is one of those people God works magic through, some more than others: I bless him for brightening up those days when I sometimes felt a despairing darkness; He was always empathetic,totally understanding of what made me tick, reassuring and then when the time was right his amazing surgical skills fixed me. Thanks and God Bless from Venetia Larsen-Tacon.
