The worst doctor I've ever seen for any reason. He pays no attention to his patients, no attention to your allergies, no attention to your problems or solving them, only cares about getting a cash payment, and leaves you hanging after surgery. Staff doesn't bother returning calls, and when the surgery goes completely awry, he bows out angrily. He charges up front for everything, but it turns our you get billed thousands more because they don't pay for the things they are supposed to, and then you get sued by the hospital, etc., after being told by the staff not to pay and they will fix the problem. I wouldn't recommend him for dog catcher and his staff is worse than inept.

In March of this year (2019) Dr. Steinmetz performed my breast reduction. I was a large D to a DD on the left and a C on the right. He brought me down to a size B and I could NOT be happier! He is a wonderful, caring surgeon. He is meticulous when it comes to his work. (which is very reassuring when having plastic surgery!) I have had two of my other doctors comment on his work and how great a job he has done for other they've seen. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Steinmetz.

I went to Dr steinmetz for a bilateral brachioplasty. I paid for this, including the hospital Bill which he was supposed to pay. I also paid him to perform suction lumpectomy on my back. After surgery my husband and I were very surprised to find that he had only removed one (1) pound of fat from my right upper arm, leaving a large dip which was very obvious. He did not remove any fat from my back! PLUS, the hospital billed Medicare and was paid by them!!! They told me that Dr Steinmetz did not.

After spending time at the Bruno cancer center, Dr. Susan Salter tells me that she wants me to see a Dr. Steinmetz, he is the greatest, you will love your results plus the man in smart and he knows what he is doing. She was oh so right. His staff is nice, they put you at ease, always pleasant. My children ages 27 and 35 met him and love Dr. Steinmetz. We tell all we meet , if you need that type of service, see Dr. Steinmetz.

Dr Steinmetz put me at ease from day one. He did my breast reduction in July 2016 and they look perfect. My GYN complimented his work today and stated how great they looked and she's never seen anyone that didn't have a thick scar under their breast. She said he did great. He has very great bedside manners and he listens to and answers any and all of your questions that you may have. I would highly recommend him to anyone that's considering cosmetic surgery.

Dr. Steinmetz has an incredible bedside manner and he spend time with patients to discuss options. I saw him in a crisis situation after another dr. He had me admitted in hopital within 2 hours and did surgery that night..I think he is amazing. Staff are fabulous too...

He was wonderful to work with. I was skeptical of seeing a plastic surgeon for my problem, but he was very kind and meticulous in my surgery as well as follow-up appointments.
