What People Say About Dr. Joel Selter, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Jesse the PA at Dr. Selter’s office is amazing. She is extremely thorough and genuinely cares about your well being. Her ethic was my saving grace. I went undiagnosed with a serious ailment after numerous other visits to different doctors and specialists. It was Jesse who was able to determine the underlying issue I will be forever grateful for what she has done for me.

18 yr old son recently completed and passed food challenge for tree nuts. Dr. Selter took the time and patience to listen to my son's history and diagnosis. He explained why he had a false positive (10yrs ago) on his blood titer and why it is still there. His staff were very efficient with our time as the food challenges take a couple of hours to complete. We are very grateful for his personal care of our son.

I can't give a doctor a good rating who does not listen or communicate well. It's part of the job. He makes assumptions. If he is mad at something, he should just say so and let the person explain. He wants to do all the talking and won't let you get a word in. He has a paternalistic bedside manner. If you don't do what he says when he says to do it, he seems to feel it is ok to be condescending and unkind. He told us one thing at an appointment and then denied it at the next. I felt bullied.
