Dr Steely is the most amazingly skilled surgeon! I have worked with him in the operating room and he has performed surgery on me and my family several times! I can honestly say, because I have witnessed his surgical skills and have been his patient, that he is by far the most talented surgeon I have ever encountered. Thank you Dr. William Steely for making me skinny again and thank you for curing my grandmother of her horrible curse of cancer!!

Saw him as a young child several times - my parents liked/respected him. Had "emergency" surgery recently(as an adult). he was not the surgeon on- call, but was very willing to see me again. He was very attentive and accommodating. Great bedside manner
