Dr Seligson had thoroughly reviewed my records to evaluate the need for surgery. Because of his thoroughness in evaluating my records, he was able to explain to me the conditions of my aortic aneurysm and his belief that it was not yet necessary to use surgery to repair the aneurysm. His knowledge of my case and the manner in which he explained my condition caused me to have an immediate confidence in his capabilities

I was very nervous about having open heart surgery, but Dr. Seligson took a lot of time explaining things and calming my fears. I can attest to his surgical skills by my rapid healing and low level of pain from the incision. Dr. Seligson is talented and beyond wonderful in his care for patients. I feel so blessed to have found him!

It was such a pleasure dealing with the doctors at this practice. Not only are they personable, but very up to date and informative with regards to the cutting edge of Cardiac procedures. Our family was confident that we found the right Doctors to perform surgeries on our 91 year-young Dad. It is refreshing to get these wonderful Doctors this day in age.

Dr Seligson takes the time and care to explain the options and spends the time to make sure that you understand. Waiting times in the exam rooms can sometime be a bit long, but that it because he is making sure that the other patients have all of their questioned answered.

Dr. Siligson is the most thorough and detailed doctor I have been to. He spent well over an hour with me and my wife explaining my need for surgery, what was involved, how long it would take and etc.

travelling from los Angeles, Steven Phillips suddenly ill air lifted to Research Kansas City intensive care 11 days. Dr Seligson Insisted his lungs clear before surgery. He was honest about the consequences if they did not wait. When Open heart surgery was performed the Dr. repaired the heart valve badly damaged follow up at Cedars Sinai Los Angeles and the drs said "they have never seen such a perfect surgery no backup blood." Dr Seligson you will always be in our hearts.Thanx

Dr Seligson is very busy but that is because he is that good. He is the best of the best and I was lucky to have him. He is a very thorough when he explains his plans for his patients. When in recovery he checks on his patients before he starts another surgery. This doctor is worth the wait. I highly recommend him.
