Dr. Seidman was excellent in all aspects. I was unhappy about the wait time, but would gladly go through it again to be seen by him.

He was one of the nicest doctors I have ever met.

It was a very fast visit, but he seemed pretty confident about the problem and best course of action. I was satisfied and didn't really have any more questions. It felt rushed, but it's a busy office.

I went with extreme pain in my left arm. I had an xray & it was negative. I was diagnosed with tendonitis as there really wasn't an explanation of what the pain was. I asked if maybe I had shingles because the pain was so bad. I was told no, you would have a rash. I was prescribed a topical cream to ease the pain. I broke out in a rash the next day & was diagnosed with shingles.

great Dr, great experience
Southshore - PG Survey


I liked Dr .Seidman. he spent time with me. I didn't feel like he was rushed. I'm not sure he impressed upon me the limitations of my activity/ mobility & I may have over done it. I'm now concerned I have prolonged my healing. Will see this week with repeat X-rays. more pain than I think I should have & I had to ask for pain meds. Dispensed #15, not enough.

Dr Seidman is a fantastic Doctor. My son and daughter have both been patients of his due to sports injuries. He has a great style of communication with the patients and parents and is always reasonable but straight to the point with diagnosis and healing time.

I didn't think there was much that could be done for the wrist that was not already being done. The Dr did provide a script for PT which was the purpose of the visit and had me make a follow up appt.

Caroline's Story
