I've been going to this doctor forever. He's been with me through 3 awful pregnancies. One stillborn, two high rush pregnancies. He is amazing! He was with me and supportive through all of the my OB/GYN issues with the latest and best new treatments, always friendly and supportive. I'm not sure I could have lasted through it all with just any doctor.
I started going to Dr. Steinbach sometime between 2000-2002 ( can't remember) after my other Dr. recommended him because his wife is a patient as well. When I first met him, he seemed likable at first, but I was put off by his unprofessional behavior when he criticized another doctor calling him a "p--ck." I have a pretty extensive medical history unrelated to GYN issues, which began when I was 17. Because of that, I hadn't been as sexually active as most people my age when I became his patient. When I mentioned this, while first consulting with him, he made a joke and said, "Well you have a lot of catching up to do." Seriously, what kind of doctor says that to someone even as a joke? It's in poor taste, not to mention unprofessional. I decided to stick with him anyway since I'd only be seeing him once a year for my yearly exam. Considering that I was referred by my physician that I have known and trusted for many years now, I thought that at least he would be good at his job. Shortly after becoming his patient, I had two joint replacements and was a given a card by my orthopedic surgeon that said I should take antibiotics when undergoing any type of gynecological surgery or vaginal exam. The next time I was due for my yearly check up, I mentioned this to him and showed him the card. His response was, "I've never heard of such a thing!" He was very arrogant about it and I was shocked because this was the first time I was seeing this side of him. In 2005, I was diagnosed with 3 tiny fibroids, but they were not giving me any real problems until the past 2 years, so I began seeing him more frequently. When I asked him about surgical options, he explained that another doctor who's more skilled in fibroid surgery would remove them if I ever got to that point. Then this past December, when I asked him again, he said he would do the surgery, forgetting what he told me just a few years prior. I had another consultation with him in January where I brought a family member with me and he switched up again and said another doctor would do it. I have an unusually good memory, especially when it comes to my health. He talks out of both sides of his mouth.. I've caught him in several lies over the years, but never let him know. On top of that, my latest ultrasound says that I have 5 fibroids. I got a copy of all of my ultrasound and MRI records and discovered that 2 years ago, my reports said I had 4 fibroids. Even though I started out with only 3, it changed to 4 fibroids at least 2 years ago but yet he kept telling me 3 as recently as this January. In January he also ordered an MRI for me because I has some cysts that weren't going away, and he sent me to a Gynecological Oncologist to rule out cancer. However, he never called me with the results of that MRI, so I took it upon myself to get the written reports. Gee, how professional (sarcasm).
The last straw, was when I was talking to him about having children in the future and opting for a c-section because of previous bowel surgery I had. There's a risk, that if I decide to deliver vaginally, and happen to tear, or have an episiotomy, I could lose muscle control down there causing me to become incontinent. When I told him what my colon-rectal surgeons told me about the risks, his response was, "That's ridiculous! This is my area!" He responded just as I predicted, arrogant, rude, and dismissive. I decided right then and there, that was the last time I'm coming to his office. I have a temper, and I've been through more medically than most people go through in a lifetime. So it's best that I don't go back to him for fear of me losing it and cursing him out. He has a horrible bedside manner and I have to seriously wonder why someone with his attitude and lack of understanding, would choose an occupation where you're working mostly with women?? He's an extremely moody, dismissive, arrogant, egotistical, and opinionated person. I don't know what his personal problems are, but it's not my job to figure it out. If you can't be a physician that shows compassion, understanding, and truly listens to your patients with an open and objective mind, then this is not the right career for you.
