Working on some post operation corrective issues now. Three years of being able to still walk and function normally have been wonderful and I love my personal interactions with him. His staff, led by Rae Richards, is compassionate and efficient and constantly monitors my post-op condition.

I had hernia surgery with Dr. Sedwitz. It was one of the worst experiences of my life. In spite of pleading with his office to provide post-op pain mediation prescriptions for weeks in advance I still had none on the morning of the surgery. I live alone and had no one to rely on. In post-op the opiod pain killers did not work. He was "unavailable". I had a serious complication and was told, "go to a urologist. That complications persists till now. Do yourself a favor and go elsewhere.

I met Dr Sedwitz when I was in the hospital and I needed surgery. He is very attentive, compassionate and professional. I was very pleased with the care that I got from him in the hospital and also his nurse practitioner post surgery. I highly recommend both of these professionals!
