"I took my son for consultation... we were warmly greeted and my son was made comfortable before seeing Dr. Steigman. He was very professional yet got us to feel confident that his practice and his expertise in this case would make it a safe procedure... thanks again 👍🏼👍🏼"
"There is so much that we want to say about how much Dr. Oh means to our family. Our son’s trip to Weill Cornell was the first medical challenge our family has faced (we have been very lucky), and sitting in the ER hearing his diagnosis was the scariest moment of our lives. But when Dr. Oh walked in to the room in the ER, we immediately felt reassured. He was confident, smart, compassionate and patient as he walked us through the surgery he needed and his recovery. Our son’s surgery went perfectly thanks to Dr. Oh and his team, and his recovery has been smooth. Dr. Oh has been available to us through every step of his recovery, and it is very reassuring to know he is there if we have any questions or concerns. We both will never forget Dr. Oh walking into our room to let us know the surgery went well – with a huge smile on his face that immediately made us feel better. Dr. Oh clearly has a gift - not only for surgery, but also for caring for scared parents during difficult times. We feel incredibly grateful that Dr. Oh happened to be on call when we were in the ER, and would recommend him without any reservation to any other family who needs a surgeon to care for their child. He is the best of the best."
"Dr. Merianos was referred to us by my daughter's endocrinologist Dr. T. Shumaker. I can not recommend Dr. Merianos and his staff and team enough. The two procedures, recovery and follow-up, all went as planned and explained. Having a doctor and a team/staff that puts patients first is priceless. I will recommend the Dr and team, hands down."
