A Good Doctor.
Dr. Steinmetz was friendly and thorough, adressing my concerns and doing a physical even though I was only able to book a consulation.
Always a pleasure. Professional, courteous and thorough.
Dr. Steinmetz is my primary physician and this visit was as excellent as all my other visits. He and his staff treat you as a person they know and care about. He is kind and thoughtful and as good a doctor as you can get.
My visit with Dr Steinmetz was helpful. He double checked my kidneys by taking blood for a blood test and also urine for analysis. Before he sends me to a specialist he wants to make sure it's necessary.
Another great visit to the best doctor in Brooklyn!
Amazing Doctor! He knows what he is doing. Very professional! Staff is also great! Everyone in this office is great!
This was the best doctor visit I've had in a while. Dr. Steinmetz is an absolute professional and a caring person. He cares about the whole person, not just what you came in for. My kids were also a bit cranky and his office staff was very accommodating to them and helped me take care of them while I was being seen. I highly recommend him to anyone.
Great service from Dr. Steinmetz, as always. No matter how busy things are, he is extremely friendly, calm, and attentive. Most importantly, he is thorough and shows that he genuinely cares about his patients' health. I highly recommend him.
Great experience at this practice. I felt very comfortable. Would highly recommend them.
The Doctor is Ok. The receptionists were not professional or friendly.
What a great doctor. I highly recommend this practice. Best doctor in Brooklyn in my opinion.
Absolutely do not recommend to go there. First of all, I waited almost 2 hours to be accepted. Secondly, Doctor makes a quick check with the patient and goes to see other rooms, they have like 6 more exam rooms. When is done with all 6, he will return to the first patient, instead of finishing one and letting him go!!! Reception desk are horrible, they dont even know in which room the doctor is. Very unorganized and unfair place!
The wait was long but dr. Steinmetz was really good and cared about my illness and made sure that I was taken care of when I walked out . I felt really good although I was ill
friendly and professional
Dr. Steinmetz takes excellent care of his patients. His listens to their complaints with full attention and answers any questions they may have. I would not hesitate to refer him to a relative or friend.
Dr. Steinmetz is always thorough and is professional and friendly.
He's an excellent doctor
He's the best!

I have been seeing Dr. Steinmetz for many years and I always found him to be thorough and reassuring.
I've been seeing this doctor for years, I loved every him. As a matter of fact I moved to Florida but I always come back to see Dr. steinmetz
Love it ! He listens and is concerned.
The best practice in Brooklyn Dr Steinmetz is smart kind and knowledgeable Great experience
The doctor is very understanding, very caring, and very attentive. Dr Ira is very knowledgeable and listens well. He understood my problem and provided a right treatment.
Everyone in there is so rude
No frills, top quality medical service, with a doctor who cares
My visit was both friendly and professional. Dr. Steinmetz is a caring physician who puts you at ease and listens thoughtfully to your complaints. He discusses treatments and tests if any are necessary and always takes the time to examine you for any issues he might suspect. I always seem to feel better after seeing him.
Dr. Steinmetz is a great diagnostician. He was able to deduce illness and provide a modified diet plan and wellness approach. Always positive, caring, and knowledgeable. Thank you!
Excellent as always.
My physical was thorough, and I was surprised that Dr. Steinmetz took my blood and spent so much time with me.
Dr. Steinmetz is extremely attentive, caring, and most importantly, he puts his patients at ease. The Dr's office is not exactly the easiest place to be for a patient, but Dr. Steinmetz makes it a smooth process. What is especially impressive is that despite many appointments throughout the day, he is not a robotic machine; he is very genuine. The only negative -- which has nothing to do with the care Dr. Steinmetz provides -- is that the service from the nurses and receptionists is not great. They have attitudes and greet you with a cold demeanor, but don't let their unfriendliness deter you from visiting. The care provided by Dr. Steinmetz makes the trip worthwhile.
as usual dr steinmentz was great ,, office staff was very nice ... 100% recommend
I like Dr.Steinmetz, he does not waste time,very professional and shares with you the possibilities
I feel like he's the only doctor that I can go to, that after a visit with him I feel better already. When I had my cough, I decided to go see my husband's doctor. She gave me these pills that made my cough even worse. I called in to say that my cough was worse and she said she sent another prescription over to pharmacy but the pharmacy said never got anything. 2 weeks in...still coughing go see another doctor and she gives me some cough syrup.. That didn't do anything,. I decided to just go back to Dr. Steinmetz and figured he will help me like how he did the first time I went to see him.. He's a great doctor, he will go over things with you and crack jokes here and there..there will be some random conversation.. You feel comfortable talking about anything..
It was a useless visit. When i told him my nose was stuffy he measures my temperature and it was 98.9. He told me i had a slight fever and it was an infection and gave me antibotics without checking my nose or my ears! Second when i told him my hands were numb and i speculate it wa due to my neck cracking he just agreed and didnt even look at my hand.
I am a big fan. He is thorough. Understands my time constraints and ensures that any necessary treatment fits my schedule and lifestyle.
Very thorough and personable! Loved Dr. Steinmetz and the staff are wonderful.
Dr. Steinmetz is kind and professional. Very good experience
He was very comprehensive and knowledgeable. Very nice and attentive.
It was a very quick consultation. ...the time that I'd been waiting was much more longer than the consultation....the doctor wasn't nice at all
Very knowledgable Doctor
My experience at Dr. Steinmetz's office was a very positive one. Since this was my first visit as a new patient, he spent additional time with me to get my medical history. Dr. Steinmetz is very knowledgeable and through in his evaluation and diagnosis of my condition.
It was great ira is one cool dude and great professional .
Really nice and thorough. I will go back and see him again in the future. The wait line was a killer though an hour an fifteen min.
Wasn't what I expected. I went by the reviews here and, must admit I haven't been seen by a doctor like this since childhood. Doctor Steinmetz reminded me of my pediatrician. He was articulate, and thorough. Didn't rush things and make me feel like a number. I will be seeing this doctor from now on.
He is a complete professional.
Waiting time was reasonable, worth the wait
The dr was very thorough and listened to all my concerns and took all my complaints seriously. He made sure I left feeling that everything was being checked.
As always the best doctor in New York was superd once again and receptionist is best nice funny co workers I ever saw my 25 years going to Doctor he the greatest
Great doctor & staff!
He comes across as compassionate and, most importantly, is thorough. I have some unusual symptoms and he is good about spending some time doing testing. He is also good about referrals for more specialized needs. The receptionist/nurses seem to play many roles and do them well. I appreciated that they seem to present a familiarity with regular patients. It demonstrates that they care about the patients that come through.
I was a first time patient.therefore I had to expect the wait time to be a bit long.However,under 30 minutes is very acceptable and understandable The staff is very courteous.The doctor was very professional He gave me confidence that he knew what he was doing..
It is always a pleasure to visit Dr. Steinmetz. He has genuine concern for his patients and is very professional. I have been a patient for at least 30 years. I always refer my friends to him when they are looking for a doctor.
I was a new patient and was seen by a nurse within 5 minutes. The ladies at the front were friendly. After the nurse took some information from me, Dr Ira Steinmetz came to the room within 5 min. He was personable, he asked many questions, and was quite funny. He did a thorough physical exam. I left the office feeling as if I had been going there for years.
he was thorough with his examination. I was suffering from a sore throat for more than 10 days. I went to another doctor before I came to see him. That doctor told me i had nasal drip and told me to use a nasal spray and a inhaler/pump (said that i had some wheezing) it didn't do anything for me. Dr. Steinmentz asked if the other doctor gave me a throat culture.. I told him he didn't. He checked my throat and gave me a breathing test. (never done one before and i had to do it a couple times... it was hard!) find out from that i had and infection. he prescribed me some antibiotics and when i took it the first day.. i started to feel so much better! we had a conversation regarding zocdoc.com and how it's so easy to book appts and all the other stuff.. would recommend others to go see him.. (even though you fill out the forms online... you still have to fill it in the office..)
The staff at this office is very sweet.
He's very kind and didn't feel any pressure. Provided prescription that I needed for my cough and I was on my way.
this waiting room is clean and plenty of reading material , but only had to wait about 5 minutes ,,,
There is a wait ; it is worth it. His instincts are on target.
Great first visit, very personable and very thorough in terms of exam.
If you have to be at a Dr's office, this is the place to be
The dr is very accommodating. He tries his best to help with referrals during his busy schedule. He is loyal to his patients and is able to set up another appt for a follow-up. He is one to go to and I have referred my fellow colleagues to him. He is one to go to for a doctor's visit.
I have been a satisfied patient here for many years.
Saw the doctor again today As usual he and his staff were terrific I feel lucky that Dr Steinmetz is such a wonderful doctor. I highly recommend this practice.
As usual the visit was great. There was no wait and the staff was very friendly. The doctor was wonderful,kind patient and knowledgeable. He is my favorite doctor Everyone should have a doctor like Dr Steinmetz
I needed an appointment for next day, I found Dr steunmetz in my area, I was seen after 1 hour and few minutes, friendly staff, I was satisfied.
HORRIBLE WAIT TIME!!!! Every time i come here i have to wait at least an hour and a half to be taken to the room and then i still wait in the room. I hate coming here because of the long wait. He is an okay doctor but no one makes you wait that long! The most i ever have to wait by other doctors is 15-30 min tops!
Had an excellent experience with Dr. Steinmetz's office today. Walked in at 11am, and was done before 11:30am.
The visit was comfortable. I could easily confide to him my worries knowing that he would provide me with the best treatments. Dr. was friendly and professional. A seemingly great PCP to have. Thanks!
great as always
Excellent would def recommend
FANTASTIC DOCTOR!!! Highly recommend! Dr. Steinmetz is my doctor FOR LIFE!!! A friend referred me, and I have been using him since, for many years. My mother and brother started going to him because of me and extremely happy with Dr. Steinmetz as well. Recommended him to an acquaintance, and he was very happy with him a well. We all have to travel a distance to see him, but well worth it!! Thank you Dr. Steinmetz for being such a great doctor! I wish you good health 'till 120 years!
Good Doctor :) I am giving 4 stars for wait time, because every time I have to wait more than 30 minutes, because of the flux :) I am not the only one with problems, so I understand it) Overall - I am very satisfied.
I feel this doctor and staff are the best in Brookyn The care is kind and comprehensive I highly recommend Dr Steinmetz
People seemed very nice, however a pretty long wait time and i had to refill a lot of info by hand that i already provided on zocdoc, and when i was asked why they told me the doctor likes everything written. I had blood drawn and had taken off the bandage 12 hours later to find a bunch of significant bruising my friends tell me the nurse was probably new, but the doctor was the one who drew blood. I am ok just never had that incident. Leaving urine was a bit confusing and not enough attention to detail like providing directions as to where to leave and how... Bed manners were excellent thank you for your help.
As usual, mine was a very pleasant appointment, I did not wait long and the staff is very friendly and understanding. Dr. Steinmetz listened to my complaint patiently and examined me. The rest of the appointment went smoothly and I was pleased with everything.
He is a very nice doctor I totally recommend him.
Dr. Steinmetz has been my primary doctor for 14 years - he is a keeper!
Very professional and through with checkups.
Office is clean and professional. Dr. Steinmetz is intelligent, thorough, kind, efficient, and professional. I would highly recommend him for service.
Always, thorough makes pt feel comfortable and goes straight to the point. Quick and experienced. Doesnt waste time, personally the way i like a doctor's visit to be. Wait time is minimal.
I came on a very busy day but the staff still made the time to be personal and helpful.
It was great and comfortable!
The reception staff was very nice and welcoming. They explained each document I was signing and answered questions with concise answers. They weren't rude at all and made small talk. My wait was about an hour but the doctor apologized and explained that since it was a holiday weekend (Labor Day), they get booked up. Dr. Steinmetz was very pleasant and thorough. He explained how the vaccine I got was going to react within 24 hours. He went through the very detailed medical history I filled out and asked about any concerns. I would defined recommend this office to anyone in the area looking for a primary care physician.
He's extremely thorough and very pleasant.
Staff was friendly and professional. Dr. Ira was wet informative and friendly.

Clean and organized office. Nice staff.
Dr. Steinmetz really helped me because I was sick and did not know why. He told me that I had a sines infection. I took medicine and after 2 days I was feeling better already. Definitely coming back!
What a great doctor and staff They really were very caring and friendly The doctor was wonderful and kind I have found my doctor for life!
It was fine once I saw him but no one should ever have to wait over TWO HOURS after their appt time especially when they are unwell.
The wait time is too long!!!!!!!!!
He was personable and through, overall he came across confident and knowledgeable. His staff and nurses were nice enough, but I found the front desk manner to be too casual with chatty gossip and slamming of doors. A little unnerving for a doctor's office. The wait time was about an hour. Overall, I would recommend this doctor to folks who live nearby.
Dr. Steinmetz is concerned, thorough and methodical, well organized, sharp, and well seasoned - a very high caliber physician in addition to being a very nice guy! I'm sincerely grateful to have such a winner as my personal physician.
Could not have asked for a better experience. Definitely making him my primary care provider.
Tiffany had a very good experience in Dr. Steinmetz's office.

It was great fast and easy to get to. And the staff are so friendly
The staff was very kind and understanding. Dr Ira was thorough and amazing!
The doc was very personable and quite engaging. He explained clearly each procedure that was being done and was very easy to talk to. In addition, the office is extremely clean and neat and the personal assistants are quite warm and welcoming. It was a pleasant experience for both my wife and I.

I thought he was very knowledgeable and nice. He made me feel comfortable and answered all my questions very thouroughly.
So far, so good. Can't tell too much from one visit, but he seems very caring and thorough, and he is a very pleasant man. I was pleased.
As always I had a good visit. Dr. Steinmetz is a very caring doctor who really takes the time to listen he is very kind and calm great bedside manner
great & caring doctor
Nice guy, knowledgable, sensible. That wait of over an hour seems to be the norm from what I've heard, so know that going in.
very professional, easy to talk to, and very helpful.
He focuses in on what is important with care and consideration
Dr. Steinmetz demonstrates critical thinking in a very caring and professional manner. He takes time to listen to your concerns and is quickly able to make recommendations geared toward healing. His office staff is as pleasant as he is and the entire experience is less stressful.
One of the best!
As usual, the benefits of being a good DR come with oneself being extremely busy, since word gets around and everyone wants to be seen. If they could do a better job seperating appt times and spreading them out, more time could be spent with each patient. Either way, DR STEINMETZ is my DR for the rest of the foreseeable future!
Hes very nice.
I did have to wait to see the doctor but once I was in he was very nice.
Listens very carefully and documents well.
Excellent doctor and staff. Beautiful office. I felt very comfortable and would highly recommend this practice.
My first visit with him was great! He was a good listener, thorough and efficient. My second visit was a very different experience. Perhaps he was tired- everyone has their off days. However, I'd spent a good deal of time having test results faxed over from other offices that pertain directly to the problem I've been having for several months and he didn't seem interested in even looking at them for more than a few seconds. Hmmm, I thought I'd found my new GP, now I'm not so sure...
Very professional and experienced. He takes what he's doing seriously and seems very knowledgeable. I will continue to use him as my primary care physician. I was also 45 mins late and the office staff was kind and understanding.
Very kind and professional, thorough and thoughtful and caring. I was impressed with his knowledge and determination to get to the bottom of my issues. He even paused to draw a diagram of how digestive villi work! Wonderful!
Nice office, nice staff. Felt welcome. Thorough doctor. Did an EKG and an aortic exam. Took blood.
Obviously, a doctor with wide range if knowledge and experience. He listened to me very carefully and then explain in good comprehensive way what's exactly happining with my throat. Then he prescribed me an antibiotics and that's it. Fair enough. No complains, at all.
It was an excellent visit. He listened to what bothered me patiently and carefully and then made a preliminary diagnosis and took a blood test to explore his conclusion. I felt very confident in his ability to deal with my "illness'" and very comfortable in his examination .
I was satisfied with this doctor.
Very good doctor. Warm and kind atmosphere in the office. I highly recommend him.
The office was professional and he did a thorough examination.
Very informative, thorough and patient. Would definitely recommend!
He was very thorough, very kind and didn't hurt when he took my blood
Great first visit. Absolutely recommend him and his team. Thank you!
