Dr. Lilly Steel, M. D. was my Primary Care physician (Internist) for fourteen years prior to her affiliation with MDVIP. She has always been a very friendly, kind, compassionate and accommodating physician. I have had occasion, in addition to my annual wellness exam and follow-up appointments, to call her emergency number at night on a weekend, left a message, to which she responded within 20… See more
My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...
My close relationships with my patients is what I love most about being a primary care doctor. Many of my patients have trusted me with their medical needs since I began in the Riverhead area of Long Island over 25 years ago. And they now have added peace of mind knowing I can be there for them when they need me. My MDVIP-affiliated internal medicine practice also offers services, including comprehensive, advanced health screenings and diagnostic tests, that go far beyond those found in concierge medicine practices.
I am affiliated with Peconic Bay Medical Center, and my personalized healthcare practice serves the east end of Long Island’s Suffolk County, including Riverhead, the North Fork and the Hamptons.
Outside of medicine, my interests include traveling and reading.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Steel
I have been with Dr. Lilly Steel for approximately 20 years now. She was an MDVIP to me long before this became her title as it is today. Dr. Steel is most compassionate, caring, concerning, thoughtful, trustworthy, thorough, ever so knowledgeable in many of the medical specialty concerns. If she doesnt know an answer, she’s quick to learn and/or knows where to go or to send me!!! Truthfully… See more
I have been a patient of Dr. Steel’s for over 18 years. I have raised a family, worked and retired and moved to NC. Her level of care is second to none. There are issues that arise with insurances, referrals, medications etc. that Dr. Steel and her Staff will address, in my case, long distance. We took a six week cross country trek last year and medications had to be filled along the way.… See more
Dr. Lilly Steel has been my MDVIP doctor before there was even such a special kind of this sort of medical care profession. Being a cancer survivor for 17 years now, Dr. Steel was with me all the way coming in early, giving up her lunch hours and staying late for me while always returning my telephone calls, as well. She has been a gem in my life since day one, which was at least or close to… See more
Dr. Steel is always available, and always ready to take on any problem regardless of time of day or day of the week. When my wife was having problems and Dr. Steel was not available, I took photos of her problem and Dr.Steel analyzed the photo's, diagnosed the problem and ordered drugs to overcome the problem. She has a great personality,and is always willing to help.
Dr. Lilly Steel was my doctor before she joined MDVIP. She is such an excellent doctor that I decided to join MDVIP so that I could continue being her patient. Dr. Steel has always gone above and beyond to make sure all options are covered and reviewed when it comes to my health. She Is always willing to take as much time as I need in reviewing tests, discussing results and offering advice.… See more
Dr. Steel truly treats the whole patient. She is a skilled and knowledgeable clinician. She takes the time to ask good questions about lifestyle in order to help diagnose a problem. She explains the annual tests thoroughly and in plain English. And she cares about her patients' overall well-being -- mental as well as physical. I always feel better after I see Dr. Steel.
Dr. Steel brings to our relationship a wealth of knowledge, experience and warm friendship we have not seen in a medical professional for many decades. She has helped us in immeasurable ways and is always eager to assist at all times. She represents what a family doctor should be! Of all the professional associations we have, she is, by far, the best.
I am 98 years old and it is almost impossible to describe the comfort and peace of mind Dr Steel gives me with the many incidents that occur with my aging body. Winston Churchill says old age takes courage and Dr Lilly Steel gives me courage and comfort. I am so fortunate to have such a caring sensitive doctor.
