Dr. Seidman and Dr. Maia Goodell, made our 2 visits the most wonderful visits they could possibly be. We met with Dr. Seidman our first visit and Dr. Goodell at our followup visit. They are BOTH the most kind, friendly, attentive, knowledgeable and patient doctors. They listen and care and provide excellent guidance. They spoke in very clear, fun, and relatable ways so that my 7 year old son could not only understand, but their delivery of information eased all worries that my son was having about his broken collarbone. They spent time with us, answering all questions with thorough and clear to understand explanations. They answered questions we had before we asked them. They provided age appropriate exercises and explanations. We hope we don't ever break anything again, but if we do, I will be so happy to return to South Shore Orthopedics and without question, we will request Dr. Seidman and Dr. Goodell. They are both OUTSTANDING!

Positioning herself to perfectly execute a winning shot is something Caroline McCarthy does well. Last summer, however, she never could have imagined that a tie-breaking point in a game would land her in South Shore Hospital’s emergency department with a severe wrist fracture….
