I was feeling very uneasy going into this appointment because of what is going on in the world with COVID-19 right now. However, once I entered the building and kind nurses were there to take my temperature immediately I felt more relaxed. When I got into the office everyone was wearing masks and gloves and hand sanitizer was available. Although I myself wore gloves and a mask into my appointment, I felt better once I saw everyone else taking precautionary measures. I was called back into an exam room within 5 minutes of checking in which was great. Dr.Seidman is always very pleasant when I see him and seems genuinely interested in what I have to say. I would definitely recommend him and South Shore Orthopedics to family and friends.

Dr. Seidman's Physician Assistant also needs 10 star excellence for her calm, factual, and extremely helpful meeting she had with J. She listened to his concerns and helped him recognize actual pain versus perceived without condescending or getting him worked up. We might not have made it through the weekend to his surgery without her assurance.
