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.

Only complaint would be that I waited over half hour in the exam room, after waiting over a half hour in the waiting room.

Dr was polite; did quick assessment of my hand, which was swollen and inflamed; gave me (my hand0 a shot to address inflammation. Did not explain to me the purpose of the shot in any detail.

South Shore Orthopedics is one of the best run medical offices I've ever attended. From the phone receptionist, to the intake interviewer, to the x-ray specialist, to the doctor, everyone with whom I interacted was friendly and knowledgable.

My treatments have never involved medication.

01/22/2019

The care provider(s) were all excellent, helpful and interested in finding a treatment for me. I had hoped for something more than just hand cream for treatment, bit I understand that may be the established treatment protocol and that is not the fault of the attending physician or his staff. Some conditions have no quick, easy and convenient resolution. I am not unhappy in any way with the way I was treated.

I received excellent care from Dr. Seidman and recommend him to others!I will definitely return to him in the future if my condition requires surgery.
