Stephen Steele, DO, FAOASM (Fellow American Osteopathic Academy of Sports Medicine) is an osteopathic family practitioner specializing in the care of children, families and seniors.
Dr. Steele served his residency at the University of California, Davis, Mercy Medical Center then attended a fellowship program at the University of California, San Diego, in sports medicine. As a result, he met and studied under a prominent family and sports medicine physician, Dr. Lee Rice. That experience inspired the young Dr. Steele to think seriously about the field of sports medicine. "It helped me to be more thorough and precise. It made me a better diagnostician," says Dr. Steele.
Dr. Steele is a past president of Eisenhower Medical Centers medical staff and was the Sports Medicine Director at the Advantage Sports and Wellness Medical Group in Bermuda Dunes for 12 years. Dr. Steele also served on the Board of Directors of the American Osteopathic Academy of Sports Medicine. Prior to moving to the desert, Dr. Steele was the Medical Director of the Telluride Medical Center and Ski Patrol in Colorado.
Dr. Steele has also continued his Navy career as a reserve officer. He has attained the rank of Captain and currently is the Group Surgeon commanding a medical unit at Miramar Marine Corps Air Station. "The camaraderie I enjoy with Navy and Marine Corps Aviators is what has compelled me to serve for 26 years," says Dr. Steele.
