I would send anyone that I knew who needed a fantastic surgeon to Dr. Selzer. He gave me back my life after I was taking infusions 2 times a week for 5 years to keep me alive. I really think this doctor is fantastic. 2020.

He was rude. He did not listen. After seeing him for months for severe abdominal pain and vomiting and he telling me it was all in my head and I liked the attention of being sick; I had a bowel rupture and severe bleed and spent 6 weeks in the ICU.

I would not recommend Dr. Selzer to any patient, as he was on call for my surgeon once and I had to call for an emergency basis. He was rude to me asking why I thought I had a infection until I stated the reasoning. He asked me to come in the next morning to the hospital at 10am for an appointment with him. However, I sat in the emergency room, found I had staff in my blood stream, and he refused to do any medical treatment. Instead, admitted me until my doc. was back that Monday to insert a dra
