I have been going to Dr. Seidman for years. If you're looking for the best ophthalmologist in Brooklyn (or probably all of NYC) this is the doctor for you. He has seen me through cataract surgery and other issues, and I couldn't be in better hands. My family members have gone to him before me. Yes, the waiting time can be long, but in my opinion, he is worth the wait. Another thing I love about Dr. Seidman is that he doesn't over-diagnose or medicate. I highly recommend him.

I scheduled an appt with Dr. Seidman after a less than satisfactory experience with another opthamologist. Smart move on my behalf. He was very patient and thoroughly interested in how to treat my condition. I wish I had found him sooner instead of wasting my time with a subpar doctor. The only downfall was the wait. However, I'd rather wait a bit and see a physician that made me feel comfortable and cared for.
