Siegel is a great surgeon. I'm serious. I was told I was going to lose my leg and I'm telling you, he was confident he could help me and he really did. I'm so proud of how I'm doing. I had a fantastic therapist and great support from the whole group at UAB Highlands. I recommend going to Dr. Siegel. He is awesome

I had both of my total knee replacements done by a surgeon (I don't want a mention his name). I just did not do well. They hurt, I couldn't do a lot of things I wanted and my husband was driving me crazy about seeing another surgeon. I went to a couple of surgeons that looked at it, couldn't figure out what was wrong and they all said "Go to Dr. Siegel." Thank god I did! He was wonderful. He was not only sweet but fixed both of my knees and I'm could not be happier. I have sent other friends from church to him and they have not stopped thanking me. He is very busy, so you need to bring something to read.

I was highly impressed with the facility and the office staff, but very disappointed in the actual visit with Dr. Siegel. He came highly recommended, but my visit fell far below my expectations. While there, I had an additional five x-rays along with the information and test I already had from a previous orthopedist. Dr. Siegel spent 3 minutes with me, never once examining me or explaining results of the new xrays. I will never go back. Was treated like I was invisible.

I read the reviews and was surprised by the two reviews of a 1. I have been seeing another doctor for my knee for over a year at Andrews Sport Medicine. I felt like a number among thousands. My appointment with Dr. Siegel was a 4 month wait. I felt comfortable with him from the moment he came in and introduced himself. I felt he took time to explain what my options were and what he felt would be the best treatment for me. I Made the decision he will do my knee replacement.

Dr Siegel appears to be a very rushed orthopedic doctor you will sit in his waiting room for hours and he will maybe spend 10 to 30 seconds with you. He does not seem to be that caring and I would not recommend any one going to him if you are planning on talking to him or having questions when he feels he does not need to talk to you . He will make you feel very uncomfortable. I do not recommend him at all. Also I feel that his staff is very unorganized'
