"Thank you the amazing surgery you have developed! I am so grateful for your innovation and skill - you've changed my life (and many others) with little or no suffering! You're the best." --Marilee. Cleveland, OH. 12/2009

"My husband and I are both very grateful for all your help and kindness. I have started therapy as per your recommendations.... I couldn't have asked for a kinder doctor than you. It will still be a long journey with the therapy but I remain hopeful. Again, Thanks." --Patricia, Atlanta, GA. 12/2009.

"Dr. Stepp had a very busy load that day but he still took his time to take care of me and to make sure that I knew what was going to happen." --Lisa, Westlake, OH 11/2009.

"I thought of you recently and decided to say hello and provide you with an update. I've been feeling terrific. My iron levels are close to normal... I am grateful everyday that you were introduced into my life. You have no idea. Thank you again. Hope you are doing well and continuing to make a difference in other women's lives as you have done for me." --Cynthia, Louisville, KY. May 11, 2009

"Just wanted to give you an update. I know the last time we talked I was training for a marathon and got injured. Well I am happy to tell you that I qualified for the Boston Marathon! ... My surgery you performed (TVT sling) has been a life saver with training for marathons. I can't thank you enough! Just wanted to let you know that you have helped me get to Boston. Thanks a million! Keep up the good work." -- Jill, Cleveland Area, OH March 24, 2010

"As I have said before, you are a wonderful doctor. I could not have asked for better. Compassionate and good at what you do at the same time. The best of both worlds. Best wishes for much success in the future.
Sincerely, Mary" --Cleveland Area, OH - 6/4/10

"Just a quick note to again thank you for taking such great care of me last January! I remember and won't forget that we talked about if I ever need a procedure again that if you weren't in town, that I would find where you are! My family and I wish you and your family all the best in North Carolina and your exciting new position! All the best! Thanks again! Sincerely, Beth" --Cleveland Area, OH 6/21/10

"I wanted to let you know I have run twice now since the sling surgery, and each time there was no leakage, not one drop. I'm free! I don't have to run with a wet pad anymore, and I still can't believe it. Thank you so much. I am forever grateful, and that is not an exaggeration." -- Stephanie, New Hampshire 6/17/10
