Meet Our Doctor
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.
