Dr. Seeds is a very knowledgeable and compassionate professional. He is accomodating, caring and goes out of his way to make his patients (and their parents) feel at ease. He provides exceptional care and is never too busy to follow up. Not only is Dr. Seeds an excellent doctor, but he’s an exceptional individual.

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!
