I am so thrilled to write this review., I now live in Costa Rica and my right eye was very watery all the time ., I went to see a doctor in CR which checked my duct canal and he told me I needed to be operated in a hospital with general anesthisia., I decided to see Dr Selem bcs I was traveling to Miami., he perfomed his magic in my duct canal and my problem was over., He saved me from a big operation, I can only say he knows what he is doing and I will always highly recommend him

I've almost forgotten that I ever had droopy eyelids. My eyes feel great now because of the excellent surgery performed by Dr. Selem he is an artist! I had a feeling of being weary or tired all the time. it was a fast surgery with no pain, post op. I suffer from Fibromyalgia and was scared of how I would feel after surgery, I never had to take any medication after surgery. Everyone that attended me was very professional. staff had my comfort and best results present. The downtime was very minimal. Dr. Selem is the BEST, I highly recommend him to anyone who is looking to have this done.

I recently had catarac surgery performed by Dr. Selem. I couldn't be more pleased with the outcome as well as every aspect of the treatment I received from him and his staff prior to the surgery. One of the things that surprised me is how efficiently his office runs. I had 5 appointments and each time I was in to see the doctor within 10 minutes of my scheduled appointment time. Dr. Selem is wonderful and caring physician.

I’m the daughter of one of Dr Selem’s patients and I was truly happy with him and his staff. The concern he personally showed her was comforting and reassuring. His professionalism is above and beyond. Thank you all your the care and concern shown to my mother. Even to the point of taking her and performing her surgery even when her transportation got her 2.5 hrs late. It’s rare to find his dedication if I ever need eye surgery he will be my first OPTION

I had an appointment with Dr. Selem about two years ago. I made the appointment because he had good reviews. When I get to the office I had to wait a long time. Then when it was my turn a lady came instead of the doctor and she said the doctor wasn't working that day. So since I had already waited so long I let her look at my eyes. But she was a really mediocre doctor. I especifically asked when I booked my appointment that I wanted to be seen by Dr. Selem, but I guess they don't care.

I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Joseph Selem. He was very knowledgeable, caring and made me feel comfortable during the visit. I came in with two Chalazions on my upper eyelid and he took his time explaining everything that I needed to know about the procedure to remove them. I decided to get them removed that very same day and the surgery was quick and with minimal pain. Thanks to his hard work and professionalism I recovered perfectly and very prompt.
