Amazing Dr.

I was growing increasingly concerned with my daughters digestion issues and her PCP was getting me nowhere. I called around and found out that Dr. Steinmetz was one the best in his specialty. I was able to get an at with only a 2 week wait to be seen. He spent 90 minutes with my daughter and I. It is really hard to convince an 8 year old to let a "Creepy old man" look at her butt. Dr. S was amazing and very comforting and non intimidating. Especially with such a delicate issue. Amazing DR! He believes he knows what is wrong and once we are definitive with the test result I will change my star rating regarding Accuracy of Diagnosis.
