Dr Seaman is a wonderful physician. My husband experienced a sudden collapse of several vertebrae. He had lost the ability to use his right leg. Dr Seaman was able to see him quickly, work through insurance, and have him back on his feet within days of seeing him for the first time.

He is an awesome physician. My husband had a major stroke. He save my husband's life. He removed part of his skull, which allowed his brain to swell. He is healing well. Doctor Seaman made a new brain flap for my husband and is going to replace it. He is caring and knows what he is doing. He is the best

Dr. Seaman is the best, hands down. My mother had a stroke, and he performed her surgery, and I never once felt like I had anything to worry about. He is meticulous and thorough, and the staff in the office is just as amazing.

I'm an RN, and I can't say enough good things about Dr. Seaman. He performed a big surgery on me & did fantastic work. He's sharp, knowledgeable, & meticulous as a surgeon, & he is friendly, positive, clear, engaging, personable, & respectful as a person. He hears & responds to every concern, & he takes whatever time is needed to address all concerns & answer all questions. Also the practice itself is well-run. Every last staff member is pleasant and responsive. I *strongly* recommend him.

To confirm the other 5 star reviews, Dr. Seeman and his staff have been extremely helpful to me with a variety of my issues. Despite having a busy practice, I’m almost always able to schedule an appt. the next day and receive a response to my phone questions within a few hours. Dr. Seemans assistant Brittany is great and fills my prescriptions and paperwork fast. I’ve consulted many MDs in my life, and it’s rare I’ve found one as knowledgalble, accommodating, and concerned as Dr. Seemans

My first visit to Dr. Seaman's office I felt comfortable. The staff was excellent in the "making sure I understood" department. With my surgeries, Dr. Seaman was the last person I saw as I was put under and the first person I saw when I awoke. His bedside manners were excellent and he always seemed to appear at the right time during my hospital stay. His office manners were just what I needed. "direct and too the point. Love this doctor and his staff. They were all there supporting me.

I had a major brain bleed in February 2016 and was exceptionally lucky that Dr. Seaman was the one who answered the emergency call and saved my life. He will always be my hero, as I wasn't expected to survive, let alone to recover, and I'm doing just fine 10 months later. He is personable, treats his patients like they're important, has a great sense of humor, and explains everything clearly. As a volunteer at Riverside I've met other patients of his who speak equally highly of him.

After 8 long years, 2 lumbar surgeries and the past year dealing with severe neck pain. Being denied by insurance for injections (which was due to the staff not sending adequate information) My last hope was Dr.Seaman. Only to be told by him; I needed a psych eval and even though I needed surgery, he did not want to be liable. That was the final straw. Went to Mt Carmel as a new patient and was scheduled for surgery 3 weeks later. This group was negligent in my care. ALLOWING ME TO SUFFER

Dr. Seaman is impossible to get in touch with! His office staff is of little help. He also has no interest in assisting a Combat Wounded Veteran. He refused to treat my husband even though it states he is taking "new" patients. My husband, humble as he is, would never tell anyone of his two Purple Hearts, as well as a Silver Star, but me being his wife, will. Apparently my husbands service and sacrifices for people, such as Dr. Seaman, mean absolutely nothing!

Dr. Seaman gave my mom her life back! There are not enough words to explain our appreciation to Dr. Seaman! My mom was unable to walk & the pain - unbearable! My mom had several prominent Surgeons refuse to even consider doing surgery on her due to her extreme deteriation. They would say, We don't know where to start! Dr. Seaman looked at her MRI, took her in immediately & did an extensive surgery (on his day off), & now mom can walk! I drive from FL each year to take mom to him. We love him
