I broke my arm in an accident with a horse and Dr. Seligson put me back together. I am giving him a five star rating because of the precision and professionalism with which he was able to repair my arm. Recovery time has been phenomenal, I am amazed with how quickly I have been able to return to normal activities. He has a pleasant bedside manner and seems to be genuinely interested in his patients. Thank you Dr. Seligson!

Dr. Seligson himself is a wonderful and very knowledgeable physician. His staff however are incompetent and have caused issues with my testing multiple times.

I had a car wreck, broke tibia really badly, needed plate and many screws. He was assigned to me at UoL hosp. I was leary, didn't know him. The Dr. and his team did a great job of explaining the injury, what was necessary to fix it and how it would work out. They did a great job. Easy to access and communicate with. 40+ years of experience and good "bedside manner". I would use him again and recommend him to anyone. *****

Changed doctors to this man and he is amazing. Found out on the first visit (2 mos after injury) He fixed my leg and was very caring. Love my doctor
in Vanceburg, Ky |
I had thirteen surgeries on my ankle due to an auto accident in 1986. I was treated at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Fl. and Duke University Research Triangle. After two unsuccessful ankle replacements I was told I was going to need an amputation. A friend of mine and a former colleague of Dr. Seligson suggested I see him. I took her advice and three years later I'm walking better than I have in many many years. I would highly suggest Dr. Seligson to anyone.
in Louisville, KY |
Dr. Seligson has been my doctor since 1986. I was in a car accident and broke both legs and hips and lost my talus bone in my left ankle. He has brought in doctors from all over the world to view my ankle. I don't have it fused and never will but I Can Walk. He has always shown care for his patients. I would recommend him and any doctor that he has taught or worked with for any accident. Dr. Seligson will do and learn anything he can to help people.
in Bardstown, KY |
I had a very serious, traumatic open wound fracture. He saved my leg when others wanted to amputate. I've been a patient for almost 4 years and he has been right about everything.
in Louisville, KY |
Performed surgery on my right hip and left leg. Recovery has been very good. Recommend Dr. Seligson as first option for orthopedic surgery.
