This Doctor put my Father on antibiotics and prednisone. Didn't tell him a Dx or why. Now he has hip pain, and we are worried it's an adverse irreversible effect from prednisone. They didn't provide education on the prednisone robbing his calcI'm. When Dad called in to report his concerns, the nurse told him that the meds have nothing to do with it, no offer to follow up or anything. Horrible Horrible !!!!!!!!!!

Dr. Semm provided me with excellent care. I have had lifelong issues with upper respiratory infections due to allergies and asthma. On my worst occasion visiting Dr. Semm, he recognized my situation and prescribed a new treatment regiment for me that helped me get over my immediate bronchitis/sinusitis and then going forward we worked out a plan for when similar events would be affecting me. All other doctors in my life just treated me for the condition and did not address a long term plan.
