Atlanta, GA |
Dr. Seiler was recommended to me by my endocrinologist. I presume he is a good physician. However, he is chronically late to every office appointment -- even when I had the first appointment in the morning. This morning I was scheduled for surgery at 7:30 a.m., and at 8:15 a.m. he hadn't shown up! I've advised my physician to think twice before he recommends Dr. Seiler.

Dr. Seiler was 30mins-1.5 hours late for every one of my 3 appointments. Very frustrating and disrespectful.
in Alpharetta, Ga |
All Dr. Seiler cares about is charging you and doing Surgeries. He wanted to do a bicep tendon attachment at the Elbow and said i needed surgery immediately. I got a 2nd opinion from Dr. Jason Schneider and he was Honest and said "look, it's only 50% torn, i think with physical therapy it will heal on it's own" I went to PT and sure enough it healed up perfect without Surgery. Do yourself a favor and dont trust Dr. Seiler, go see somebody else..

I have had three surgeries with Dr. Seiler. One was for carpal tunnel and the other two were for trigger finger release. These procedures were all successful and I now have normal functions with my hand and fingers. I trust myself in his care and am so thankful for excellent doctors such as Dr. John Seiler.

John did several operations on my left arm and especially my left wrist while at Mass General. I am a musician and John put me back in the game and able to play. I went on to Berklee college and graduated ,and have now completed a long awaited record after 45 years of playing professionally. I owe that opportunity to John, he is an amazing doctor and will forever have my gratitude!
in Marietta, Ga |
I am having my 3rd operation. 1st surgery mangled R wrist. Seiler repaired nerve damage, set broken distal bone w/titanium plate, fixed carpel tunnel & removed bone fragments. Feb/2012 2nd surgery plate removed, nerve damage repaired caused by plate. Apr/2013 3rd surgery is for L pinkie. Dislocated/broken bone/bone fragments/nerve damage. Mar 3, 2016. Dr. Seiler is marvelous. I see some comments about staff. Confusing to me, they have all been professional and congenial.
