Dr. David Steinberg
David Steinberg, M.D.
Dr. Steinberg started his own private practice of Ophthalmology in 2003 with a goal of providing the highest quality of eye care with advanced technology and a personal touch. In a time of mega-practices where patients feel lost in the shuffle, Dr. Steinberg's approach is a refreshing reminder of how medicine should be practiced. Few physicians know their patients as well as Dr. Steinberg. Many Physicians and optometrists in the community are his patients.
Dr. Steinberg's personal approach makes no compromise in offering the most advanced technology and techniques. He specializes in minimally invasive cataract surgery and advanced laser vision correction. He has brought advancements like premium lenses and dropless surgery to Dutchess, changing the standard of care for vision across the county. He brings over 20 years of experience as an ophthalmologist, starting with a rigorous residency in Ophthalmology and Ophthalmic Surgery at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey in Newark. He achieved Board Certification from the American Board of Ophthalmology with performance in the top ten percent. It has been Dr. Steinberg's commitment to stay up to date on the most current advances in eye care through a program of continuing education for not only himself but for his staff.
Every technician at Precision Eye and Laser has the opportunity for advancing employee training and education. Dr. Steinberg provides all learning materials and financial support as his technicians become certified through the International Joint Commission for Allied Health Professionals of Ophthalmology (IJCAHPO). He can commonly be found in the office before and after hours working personally with technicians to bolster their skills.
Since starting his practice, Dr. Steinberg has grown his patient base from 0 to over 40,000. He currently personally performs over 1000 surgeries per year and specializes in personalized care. He understands that not everyone uses their eyes in the same ways and takes the time to personally tailor surgical outcomes with his patients to align to their lifestyle. As a recipient of Lasik himself, Dr. Steinberg understands how important it is to be informed at every step and to have time to build trust with your surgeon.
