I was disappointed to learn that Dr. Seade does not take the Medicare Advantage Plans that retired State of Texas Employees have.

I had seen two other orthos; one saying I needed surgery right away; the other saying the problem was not my shoulder but rather my neck! Dr. Seade recommended shots until they no longer help. So far, they are helping tremendously. Sometimes 3 months - sometimes up to 5 or 6 month! Thank you, Dr....more
