While visiting AZ from MA I had an unfortunate bike accident sending me to the ER requiring subsequent surgery. I was not sure about my insurance coverage and did not like the reviews of the Ortho office recommended by the ER doctor. Called other offices for a couple of days with no luck (end of March, Covid-19 closings, did not accept my insurance, etc). Luckily for me, I called this office at 11:00am and they saw me at 1:00pm. Fortunately for me, it was with Dr. Siegel. Kind, caring and an outstanding surgeon. Barely a scar. Great staff. Highly recommend. Thank you!

I hand surgery for my carpal tunnel in June. Dr. Siegel was my physician. I would highly recommend him. He was informative, knowledgable, kind and he has years of experience as a surgeon. I trusted him. I feel like a new person no more pain. He reassured me that would happen.

I highly recommend Dr. Siegel for anyone with any type of elbow or hand issues. He is kind, caring, and was very thorough explaining my wrist, hand and elbow problems to me. All my problems resulted as a side effect of major Open Heart Surgery that I had 6 months ago. I should have had allot more padding under my elbow, so that major nerves would not have been harmed during the 6 hour surgery. I was told by my doctors/surgeons that this discomfort would all disappear with time, in other words, all areas of concern would ALL bounce back. Here I am 6 months later, and there is no improvement. Dr. Siegel gave me hope once again! Now, why can't we have more doctors with this super bedside manner, rather than those that treat us as a mere number on their daily patient list. I just had my surgery today, so hopefully the outcome will be as super as Dr. Siegel is! Thank you, Dr Siegel, for attempting to help me.

Flawless experience with Dr Seigel. I had both hands operated on (at different times) due to carpul tunnel issues. My fingers were going numb along with losing strength in my hands. I had the right hand fixed in March and all of the feeling has returned. I was able to travel and go to work 3 days after the surgery, no hand brace, just a band aid. No discomfort at all after a couple weeks. The doctor and his staff are very personable and professional and worked with me in scheduling the appointments and treatment. I had my second hand worked on yesterday. Same flawless procedure. I’m very happy with the whole experience, and was made to feel comfortable the whole time. The entire procedure, from check in to exit was only a couple hours. Dr Seigel and his staff are a rare find, and I would recommend them to anyone !

Extremely competent. Takes time to explain everything to patient. When my husband had a little post-op bleeding, Dr. Siegel called me and walked me through managing the bleeding and called again a couple of hours later to check the status. Extremely kind and caring.

Dr. Seigel repaired damage done to my hand by another doctor. He also did carpal tunnel surgery on my other hand. He actually, the first time I met him, LOOKED AT my medical records and questioned certain meds, which had nothing to do with his procedure. Several of my friends also go to him. He does not recommend surgery you don't need. He explains everything, in layman details, reasons, x rays, and procedures. I have never had to wait at his office. He is always pleasant.

Dr. Siegel is an excellent surgeon. He explains the procedure thoroughly and answers all questions. He's a true professional. He is operated on my fingers a number of times as the arthritis spreads to new fingers. I had other hand surgeries by other surgeons and Dr. Siegel fixed what they did incorrectly. I would not go to another hand surgeon. He is the BEST!

Had a complicated wrist fracture just before Thanksgiving. Understandable scheduling quirks resulted in meeting him for the first time in OR. Gentle-mannered, soft spoken and reassuringly conversant in his field. He fully explained procedure and gave opportunity to ask questions. Was honest and accurate in predicting what would happen during the healing process. Have referred him to friends who were also pleased. He is a role model for excellent medicine and compassionate humanity.

Very knowledgeable & professional. Upon examination of my hand he assessed my issues & gave his recommendations. I had surgery & Dr Siegel surrounded himself with other skilled professionals during that process. I received follow up calls from everyone asking how I was. That alone was impressive.

Saw Dr. Siegel for issues and pain I had in my right hand. Quickly diagnosed as carpal tunnel with trigger finger, and a quick surgery was scheduled. Everything went extremely smooth, from my first contact with the doctor and his staff, the handling if my insurance, and to the actual surgery. My hand issues are solved, and recovery was almost a non-event. Highly recommend dr. Siegel for anyone with any type of hand issue.

Dr. Siegel did surgery on both of my hands for carpal tunnel syndrome. One surgery for each hand and that was it. Fixed. He is smart and he is good. Physical therapists and other physicians go to him for treatment, if that tells you anything.

This guy is an amazing surgeon. My daughter shattered her wrist and was away a college. We contemplated bringing her back to LA for the surgery, but realized she really needed to be treated where she lives. We found him on the internet, but there was not much info about him. After we chose Dr Siegel as the surgeon, we realized that not only is he a great surgeon, he is one of the best! Surgery went well and so did recovery. Office has good old fashion xrays on light boards, but still great
