Ratings for Dr. Jamie Steckley
This doctor is a complete box checker. He does not care at a) about the patient. He is in and out type of doctor with no bedside manner. He is not remotely interested I the patient's well being. Very arrogant and unwilling to spend time with patients. Cookie cutter doctor who thinks all patients are the same.
Dr. Steckley has been my neurologist for my epilepsy for the last 6+ years. He has been very comforting in times of need when I was feeling anxious about how epilepsy would affect my life currently (I can still drive, however, I am sometimes fearful of driving and other situations day to day) and in the future (having kids, etc). He told me something that I have remembered since and it is to live my life to the fullest, be conscious of my epilepsy but that as long as I am taking care of myself, that I can accomplish anything I put my mind to. He is knowledgeable and reviews everything surrounding my health in regards to medication, testing etc. He is always looking for ways to make life easier with a neurological issue. Some may find him "quick to the point" however, he is compassionate.
I found Dr. Steckley to be very professional and listened to me explain my symptoms. He found slight compression on some nerves after doing an EMG test. I told him how my doctor would not do an MRI even though I was experiencing bad neck pain radiating down my arm. I was in a severe MVA over a year ago and have asked my doctor several times for an MRI. Dr.Steckley said given the pain I was in that was reason enough to order one and he wrote in his report to my doctor to do one. I just got the results and I have two bulging discs in my neck. I am very angry at my physician and thankful that Dr.Steckley asked him to order the MRI because my doctor was not listening to me. I have suffered over year with this pain and it has affected the use of my arm. I am hoping now that this information has come to light on my neck that Dr.Steckley will be able to refer me to someone for help.
Dr. Steckly is needs to work on his bedside manner. Working in health-care myself, it always astonishes me when I meet another doctor who is only in these professions to pad their pockets. He has no compassion, he's insolent, and does not take the required time to get a thorough history. My advice...move on to the next Neurologist.
Dr. Steckley has been a life saver, literally. I was diagnosed with Gilliam Barre Syndrome on February 07 2011 and have been in his care since that date. He is knowledgeable and easy to talk to. He is also a straight shooter and doesn't give you false hope. Leanne, his receptionist is very good at what she does as well. I trust his team without question.
