A few days before this appointment, I fell on my left hand. It was bothering me for days and it wasn’t improving. I probably broke one of the bones in my hand. I called Dr. Seeds office. Oh gosh, the front desk was so helpful. Checked on my insurance, and they offered me an appointment for the NEXT day. I was asked to fill out the health history online and bring it with me. Which I did. At my appointment, they asked for a copy of insurance card and my ID, which was given to them. The front office staff were professional, helpful, accommodating, and caring. The waiting room had plenty of room to social distance and the staff were wearing masks. I just sat down when the nurse asked me to come in. She reviewed my reason to there and explained I would need a few x-rays to determine what’s wrong. Great office-they had their own digital x-ray machine, no need to go to the hospital or wait for the x-rays to be processed. This is a Top-Notch office! The nurse took several different views and

I am a walker suffering a broken toe Dr. Seeds assured me that 12 weeks in was a normal timeline to still be experiencing some continued pain, redness and swelling. With this useful medical advise I know now to expect a probable three month complete recovery period rather than expecting the break to be healed in some weeks time. Dr. Seeds greatly reduced my uneasiness on this injury.

Went to see Dr. Seeds after my son broke his ankle. He literally was in the room with us no more than 2 minutes. He gave us minimal information and left us before I could ask more question. It was very frustrating since my son was in a lot of pain. I decided to go to another doctor. So happy I did!

Dr. Seeds and the Midwest Bone & Joint staff are amazing! I have been in the office numerous times with my boys and for myself and not one time have we waited more than 5 minutes to see Dr. Seeds! He is very professional and explains in detail the injury and the treatment. I will be recommending Dr. Seeds to everyone I know!

My type of doctor. Straightforward, to the point, get the job done. He clearly explained what my options were and how I should proceed. My situation required left shoulder rotator cuff surgery to repair three tears. He laid out the schedule and met it spot on. Just for the record I never thought I would have full use of my left arm after getting hit by a car while on my bike. He fixed it! Nice job.

I am a runner and saw Dr. Seeds for knee pain. He was extremely knowledgable about my issue and was exceptional about explaining things in terms I could understand. He was very cost-conscious bout not ordering unnecessary tests and came up with a non-surgical solution that worked! I'm back to running and just completed my first half marathon last weekend! Thank you Dr. Seeds!
