Dr. Siedman has treated me various injuries since Nov. 2012. He has had to perform multiple surgeries on my left hand and wrist. I would not had use of my hand if it wasn't for him. He is currently treating me for a torn rotator cuff and ligament and cartilage tears in my knee. Unfortunately I need surgery to both. I am not concerned though because of Dr. Seidman. I am confident that things will work out without any problems. I have recommended him to several of my coworkers and friends. They all feel the same way as I do. I am very happy and proud to know him and greatful for the care he has provided to me!!!
