Dr. Seltzer is the best surgeon I have ever been to! I had a compound fracture of my wrist. After he performed surgery, my wrist healed quickly and is fully operational!

This orthopedic office is like the puppy meal of Orthopedics. They overbook and do not allow enough time for each patient. The office and Jupiter is shabby staff is rude. Avoid it.

Dr. Seltzer has to be one of best, most compassionate and caring doctors I have ever known. Two days before Thanksgiving, I had a sewing machine needle go through my finger and break off in two pieces inside. Dr. Seltzer performed surgery on Thanksgiving day to extract the pieces because he was concerned about infection. What doctor does this on a major holiday? In that I sew for a living he recognized the immediate need for surgery. He did a fantastic job! I wholeheartedly recommend him!

I have been going to Dr. seltzer for 20+ years for one orthopedic issue after another he has operated on both of my elbows u. he has been taking care of my knee from shots to just recently total a knee replacement. His bedside manner is awesome as well as his staff as I am home recuperating from my knee replacement I have been able to text him and he has called me back twice because he’s a caring doctor. I have and I will always recommend Dr. seltzer for any orthopedic issues anyone may have

Never saw him -after 2 hour wait I was told he had 5 patients in front of me. They double book to make more money. Glad I left after seeing other reviews esp that he operated on the wrong hand of one patient. Wow!!

Very frustrated, I went to Dr. Seltzer complaining of inner knee pain and tremendous swelling. He took x-rays and insisted that I had bad arthritis in both knees. Per his advise I purchased a knee brace and had a series of 3 gel shots. Every visit I kept telling him that I thought it was something more and he would tell me it was the arthritis. I decided to go for a second opinion and found out that I have a torn meniscus and ganglion cyst. Would not recommend this Dr.

I seen Dr. Seltzer who informed me i need a totally new knee without doing a MRI. When i fell and injured my knee i called his office but did not get a return phone call. i called again setting up an appointment. When i seen Dr. Seltzer he removed the fluid off my newly injured knee. My bad knee was twice the size and very painful. When i asked about removing the fluid from that knee he stated " NO I TOLD YOU THAT KNEE NEEDS TO BE REPLACED" leaving me no other alternative than to seek a new Dr.

friendly, smart, great mannerism and attitude, quick diagnosis and treatment. Assistant staff (Jenine) and Dr. Seltzer great team. Checked on the spot with my GP for compatibility with medication required, and called pharmacy to be sure they had the meds i needed... Very highly recommend!

He took the time and cared with each surgery I've had over the last four years. The first time I met him I came out of a seizure to a broken shoulder and he just let me know he valued me and respected me as a human being. Later I had a broken wrist, and a third time I broke my elbow. He was there and knew my health issue and took the time to help me feel safe with each injury I was dealing with at the time.

Dr Seltzer was calm, attentive and reassuring to my patient who needed surgical repair for multiple left arm fractures. We are very grateful to have found him.

My husband had used Dr. Seltzer for his trigger fingers and had a very satisfactory experience with Dr. Seltzer and his staff. I just had reconstructive thumb surgery with Dr. Seltzer and also feel the same.
