Super Dr. Seldes
I've been a patient of Dr. Seldes for almost 10yrs and I must say he is an exceptional surgeon/doctor and I am so pleased with the results from my total knee replacement surgery. The scarring is minimal, the pain, swelling and arthritis all gone and I've just made a year post-op. You couldn't ask for a better more knowledgeable doctor!

He's very kind and did great work upon me. Although I'm very lack of knowledge he explains me in simple English step by step to know more about my knees condition and give me excellent advice to me. I always respect & thanks to him and i'll continue doing anything as he says that I need to do future cure for my knees without any doubt.

Dr Seldes’ staff
Dr Seldes is great and I highly recommend hi but his staff doesn’t seem to be coordinated and they provide very little or incorrect responses to questions. Not sure if they’re being given enough information, need more training or perhaps both but they are clearly unprepared to handle followup questions and details.
