provider came in I explained my issue he told me have no feeling in my hand for only 2 weeks was not long enough to do anything. he suggested wearing a hockey elbow pad to bed. if it was not better in another month then come back and they will send me to Nuerology for tests. I explained to the Doctor that I am a competition shooter and need my hand to shoot. he didn't seem to care and just said wear the elbow pad for a month and my hand numbers should go away. when in fact the elbow brace is making the numbness worse.

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.

I am very happy with So. Shore Orthopedics, I do feel the Dr. is always rushing to get to the next patient. This is not a reflection on personality or professionalism. I just feel like my questions are answered at a very fast pace with anticipation of getting on to the next patient. I realize there is a tight schedule, but a few minutes couldn't hold up things too much.

Caroline's Story

????????????????????????????????????????????

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….
