Geriatrician Eugene Steinberg, M.D., has established his medical practice with OU Physicians. Geriatricians provide health care services specific to seniors just as pediatricians specialize in health needs specific to children.
Steinberg is board certified in family medicine, geriatric medicine, hospice and palliative medicine. He completed a fellowship in geriatric medicine at the VA Medical Center in Buffalo, N.Y., and completed a family medicine residency at State University of New York (SUNY), Buffalo. He earned his medical degree at the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine.
Steinberg is a member of the American Academy of Home Care Physicians, American Academy of Family Medicine and the American Geriatrics Society.
In addition to seeing patients, OU Physicians geriatricians at The Donald W. Reynolds Department of Geriatric Medicine at the OU College of Medicine also teach other physicians about specialized care for seniors at the OU College of Medicine.
With more than 560 doctors, OU Physicians is the state's largest physician group. The practice encompasses almost every adult and child specialty. Many OU Physicians have expertise in the management of complex conditions that is unavailable anywhere else in the state, region or sometimes even the nation. Some have pioneered surgical procedures or innovations in patient care that are world firsts.
OU Physicians see patients in their offices at the OU Health Sciences Center and in Edmond, Midwest City and other cities around Oklahoma. When hospitalization is necessary, they often admit patients to OU Medical Center. Many also care for their patients in other hospitals around the metro area. OU Physicians serve as faculty at the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine and train the region’s future physicians.
