This practice did nothing, but strip me of my valuable time and Sick Leave, and empty my wallet. Steinmetz Medical Associates claims to provide excellent service -- based on my experience, this is untruthful. First, I was consistently treated rudely by Jeremiah, one of the many young staff hired by the practice. Young, inexperienced LPNs work for the practice, one who does not even know how to properly take blood. I saw Dr. Rose, who claimed to be a specialist in everything. She told me that I would no longer need to see any of my specialists (e.g., Dermatologist, Gastroenterologist, Rheumatologist, etc.). I brought several medical concerns to her attention. One of which was that I had recently undergone midfoot surgery in Summer 2011, to address midfoot arthritis. There had been no improvement since the surgery. Dr. Rose told me that acupuncture would alleviate my pain and take care of my midfoot arthritis. After several acupuncture visits with Dr. Lee and thousands of dollars later, I was referred to an Orthopaedic Surgeon, who sent me for an MRI, and who just performed a midfoot joint fusion on my right foot in December 2012. I had bone on bone; with all the cartilage loss I had, acupuncture was not going to magically cure my foot. I could have scheduled this surgery a lot sooner had I not wasted my time and money with Dr. Rose and Dr. Lee. I called the practice throughout Fall 2012 to attempt to discuss my misdiagnosis. No one from the practice returned my calls. Finally, after numerous, repeated calls, Dr. Rose called me on January 7th, 2013, while I was home, recovering from surgery. She was argumentative, instead of apologetic, to say the least. I thought Steinmetz Medical Associates, as an out of network practice, would be interested in retaining its patients and concerned about its reputation in the medical community. Based on my January 7th conversation with Dr. Rose, this clearly seems to not be the case. In addition to my midfoot arthritis, Dr. Rose incorrectly treated my cystic acne and acid reflux -- thankfully, both of my specialists stepped in to address these. I was told by Dr. Rose to go on several supplements, which are for sale in the Office for an exorbitant cost (FYI...most all the supplements are available online, via Amazon, for a fraction of the price). I am truly upset with my overall experience with Steinmentz Medical Associates. I am only sorry that I did not stop visiting with this practice sooner. Steinmetz Medical Associates is located in a terrible section of Alexandria, on the ground floor of an apartment high-rise -- the practice is not even located in a Professional Medical Park. Please, please save yourselves the trip, your time, and money -- they are all way too valuable to be wasted on this practice.
