Dr. Steinbaum (1906-1989) earned his Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine degree from A.T. Still University-Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine (ATSU-KCOM) in 1930. He was first affiliated with the Greenville Hospital in Jersey City, N.J. where he was a member of the Board of Trustees and served as medical staff president. He subsequently established the Steinbaum-Levine Associates medical practice comprised of himself, Howard M. Levine, D.O., Steven M. Levine, D.O., Martin S. Levine, D.O., and Fred Steinbaum, D.O. Located in Bayonne, N.J., he practiced in this location until retirement in 1988.


Dr. David Steinbaum was a life member of the American Osteopathic Association (AOA), and was posthumously presented their “Distinguished Service Award”. Through the New Jersey Association of Osteopathic Physicians and Surgeons he served as trustee on the New Jersey Osteopathic Foundation, served on the Public Relations Committee, and was Chairman of the Vocational Guidance Committee, a role that allowed him to influence more than 100 students to attend ATSU-KCOM. In 1970, the New Jersey state association honored him as “Physician of the Year”. Early in his career, he was credited with working to obtain equal practice rights and hospital privileges for osteopathic physicians in New Jersey.


Dr. David Steinbaum served as President of the New Jersey chapter of the Kirksville Osteopathic Alumni Association (KOAA). In 1967, he established the David S. Steinbaum Scholarship Endowment, which has evolved into the Steinbaum-Levine Endowment Fund for the Advancement of Osteopathic Medicine.

With the office/medical practice in her home, Mrs. Steinbaum worked as the “Executive Secretary” for Dr. David Steinbaum.
