Patient Comments (3)
Mission Viejo, CA |
We were referred to Dr. Steinmetz by our pediatrician for my 11 year old son. Dr. Steinmetz was very friendly and thorough, not to mention great with my son! He will take his time to answer your questions. He is a fast talker but I wouldn't be afraid to ask him to repeat what he said or for clarification.
Dr. Steinmetz has an excellent bedside manner, is kind and courteous with parents, and absolutely wonderful with children. He is incredibly knowledgeable in his specialty, and works hard to find ways to approach treatment that will fit into the real world. I recommend him to everyone. He is by far the only GI specialist I will ever trust with my children. Everyone I've met who has ever worked with him has had nothing but wonderful things to say about him, and I agree. He is the BEST.
Long Beach, CA |
Dr. Steinmetz is the best GI doctor in Orange County. The practice is forward thinking, research based with a plan and goals that are expected to be reached within a specific timeline. If a goal is not reached he looks at other options that might work better or current research. After procedures, when we receive results, Dr. Steinmetz is very thorough, detail oriented and takes his time. We never feel rushed. There is no other doctor we trust.
