Dr.Stephen R Steinmetz performed bilateral brachioplasty on me some time back. The results were horrific! I will upload photos as soon as I get my laptop back in service to prove that claim. He was paid thousands. He removed one (1) pound, by his report. I paid him extra to perform liposuction on my back, but my husband complained there was no difference.
My left arm had only a long, long scar to show for the surgery. My right arm had a large divot out of the upper portion. I guess that is where the one (1) pound was removed. Also, his office manager, He, collected for the hospital Bill, which she said they paid. BUT, the hospital billed Medicare and was paid by Medicare!!! Dr. Stephen R Steinmetz has refused to give me a refund.
Other doctors have seen the work he did and said he “didn’t know what he was doing” (the cosmetic surgeon I paid $10K to repair Dr. Stephen R Steinmetz’s mess); “should have gladly refunded your money entirely”, another cosmetic surgeon; “You should sue him”, two of my other personal physicians.
I have tried to work this out with Dr. Stephen R Steinmetz to no avail. He took advantage of me. He abused me. What he did amounted to Assault and Battery in my mind. He seems so charming in the office. So does his office manager.
He tries to say he offered to “fix” his botched job, but what he offered me was an in-office, local anesthetic, procedure which could not possibly have corrected my arms and back without almost killing me. I am a retired surgical RN so I know what I am talking about!!!
