    To the family, please accept our deepest condolences for your dear loved one. The bible assures us that our heavenly father is aware of our pain and he is near to the brokenhearted (Psalm 34:18). It also gives us the promise that there will be a resurrection and that God will bring an end to death once and for all (John 5:28,29; Revelation 21:4). We pray these scriptures are able to bring you some comfort.

    I have just learned of the passing of this saintly physician and mentor. Dr. Steiner more than once saved my life as my Neurologist and more than anyone mentored and supported my intellectual development as an adolescent. I simply would not be alive and the person I am without him. Dr. Steiner exemplified the ideal model of a physician and healer who diligently and compassionately addresses the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual dimensions of his patients. The world is truly at a loss in his passing. May those who were fortunate enough to cross his path remember him and let his life of service be a guide for our own.
