Dr. Steele relocated to Fort Worth, Texas in 2011 to pursue private practice. While he and his family enjoyed their time in Texas making great memories and friends, Dr. Steele decided that a smaller community would be the best place to raise his family. Dr. Steele was recruited to join Dr. Smith at Tri-State Specialists bringing his expertise in aesthetic surgery of the breast, body, and face as well as his extensive experience in reconstructive surgery of the face and breast.

Dr. Steele has received numerous awards and recognitions for his expertise in cosmetic surgery including Top Doctor, in the Fort Worth Texas Magazine 4 years in a row, Top 100 for 2015-2016, and membership in The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
