Dr. Seals knew exactly what my problem was. He gave me my options as to treatments. I choose to have my tonsils taken out at the age of sixty three. Everything went great and I received the best of care. Contrary to what I had been told by other people's horrible and very painful experience...more

I have always loved the Dr's here but there is a new girl there Christy and she is awful to deal with. The worse medical assistant I've ever dealt with. I have found a new Dr.

My son had surgery to repair nose fracture and Dr Seals bedside manner was excellent with my son and myself. Took time explain everything and then after surgery took time to let me know how surgery went. Would highly recommend Dr Seals.
