Specialties

Dr. Ian L Steele has the following 2 specialties

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

A very fearful doctor

He was totally intimidated by the fact that I had taken control of my health. I use a number of supplements to great effect and have studied such things for decades and am careful and good at what I do. He TOTALLY freaked out that I was taking anything not prescribed by a doctor...even though he offered NO solutions or assistance for my issues. More experienced doctors at least accept such things, a few actually realize the benefit. Not this doctor...he is simply ruled by his fear of the unknown...even though so much is known/studied at this point. I went elsewhere.

Pass on this MD

If I could give zero stars I would. First, you can't every get an appointment when you have a problem, even as an established patient. When I decided to look around for another MD because I wanted a woman, he found out (not that I was hiding anything) and dropped me from his practice! I am an advocate for my own health, and do not feel he values that or my involvement in my own care. He may seem nice in person, but don't be misled. By the way, I am also a nurse in the community and am appalled at his actions.

Extremely bad experience

Dr Steele's staff was horrible, it took them 4 times to get the prescription right, but please be warned - his personal assistant ROY is very rude and unprofessional, if you have to go to GI - choose a different doctor, because if you need a follow-up you have to deal with his staff, not the doctor :( himself.

Excellent care

Dr. Steele is probably one of the nicest doctors I have ever seen. Wait time at his office was low. He took time to listen to me and explain things in laymans terms. Got me in for procedures quickly and even used a bowel prep that was easier than the horrible tasting stuff that I had to use in the past. My doctor told me to see him, because he was her doctor as well.
