This was a great overall experience. I am completely satisfied with my visit. Staff is beyond friendly and patient. Dr. Semel is funny, compassionate and highly intelligent. This office is a must for anyone who wants to be treated like family.

Dr. Semel is the best of the best. He takes the time to listen and understands your concerns and diagnosis with precision and accuracy. I love coming to him and knowing I get the best care I can get for my money.

Dr Semels is actually a nice guy and probably a good Doctor but the office staff is a disaster. And what value is it to have a family Doctor if you can't get in to see him. We moved to Boca in April and immediately we started looking for a family doctor. My first "new patient" visit took 2 months. Then I saw him again and it took 2 weeks. Last week I had a serious condition because I had not taken my blood pressure meds as I should and needed to see a Doctor plus I had swelling in my foot wh

I went to Dr. Semel for the first time on Sep.20th 2016. I was so impressed with him. He spent along time talking to me and he was kind and caring. I left the office so happy that I can rely on Dr Semel. What a difference it makes to feel confident in your doctor.

Love this doctor and his staff. I could not ask for better care for myself and my wife.
in Boynton Beach, FL |
My husband & I have been patients of Dr. Semel for over 5 years. As a nurse, I have nothing but good things to say about him. He takes his time with you at every appointment. I have even met a retired doctor & nurse (husband & wife) in the waiting room that are his patients. That should say something!
in Boca Raton, FL |
Friendly, helpful staff. Dr. Semel is a wonderful doctor. He takes his time and treats you as a whole person not just another patient.
in Boca Raton, FL |
I had been a patient of Dr. Semel's for over 4 years. At my last office visit, I did not bring my insurance card, as I misplaced the new one, and asked if the staff could check with United Healthcare to ascertain that I was a member and get my I.D. member#. They refused to do this and instead, I was forced to pay $150 for a full office visit charge. When I called U.H. they were very surprised that this was not done. Unfortunately, I liked Dr. Semel but will not return because of this.
