I would highly recommend Dr. Seeman. He has been my Gastro MD for 20 years and has always been professional and courteous. Recently he was able to recognize my type 2 Hiatal Hernia that needed immediate surgery and without delay connected me with a great surgeon. Again, this is one of the best MD's for this speciality and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.

My wife received poor service from this office. We had to go to the emergency room because the office did not return our ergent call. Weeks into this and we still do not know what the diagnosis is. Gave my wife so many drugs, we ended up in ergent care with heart issues. Asked for a routine note and received without dates to provide to employer. Called office again, and they said for my employer to call the office. Good luck, you will just get the answering service. Do not use this doctor

I could not be more saddened or disappointed with Dr. Seeman and his PA, Elizabeth. It's now been 3 months of constant pain, diarrhea, nausea and vomiting and I feel NO different. Despite the fact that I have been in the hospital on two separate occasions and have had every test known to man, I still have no diagnosis. Worse part is, no one will call me back or give me results from a test I had 2 1/2 weeks ago (they said it would take 3-5 days). Disgusting and unprofessional.

He diagnosed a serious disease in me 10 years ago and has seen me on a regular basis since that time. I have found him to be compassionate and professional during this difficult time. His office is pleasant, his staff is kind and I have been treated with the utmost courtesy. I would not hesitate to recommend him to family or friends.
