The best pediatric GI in Orange County! He successfully diagnosed my son with Eosinophilic Esophagitis and guided us on getting it into remission very quickly. He is a 5-Star diagnostician. VERY SMART! and he explains every geeky detail about what goes on in the GI tract in a way where you can understand. Even though he is so busy, he always remembers what is going on with his patients (takes awesome notes), so you don't feel like you have to repeat yourself at every visit. This Dr is also super friendly with a fun sense of humor. The nurses at the hospital all rave about him as well.....He is definitely a favorite over there. Also, his office staff are VERY helpful. They understand that we parents are concerned and they do all they can to help us get appointments and the answers we need.

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.

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.
