Eric A. Steffen, MD
"What I like most about what I do is having the ability to develop long-term patient relationships, and to be able to help surgically when needed. In addition, I enjoy using technology, and ophthalmology is on the forefront of technology with leading-edge lasers, surgical devices, and instruments.
I enjoy helping preserve and restore people’s vision and working with patients every day. Developing long-term relationships with patients is important to me. I hope to give my patients an understanding of what is happening to them, and confidence that they are getting the best care possible."
