Office/Staff always very professional and efficient. Dr Seldes is extremely knowledgeable and always explains things in detail. Had my very fist cortisone shot in my knee today and was very apprehensive about it but Paul walked me through procedure, calmed my fears and it was nothing to stress over. Looking forward to PT and my followup visit in the office in six weeks. Very pleased with outlook toward recovery.

I met with Dr.Seldes for my first post surgery visit. Today’s visit went really well. I had hip replacement surgery on October 15th 2021. The surgery was painless, it’s been over a month and I didn’t experience any pain at all. I’ve share my experience with my family and friends and recommended Dr. Seldes if they were to need a specialist in the future.

Dr. Seldes is very efficient in what he does. He’s not one who will just surgery for numbers. My personal experience was I had an infected knee I just wanted him to do the surgery he told me up front “I want to make sure you’re circulation is good first before I do surgery. If I could have given him 10 stars I would have.

Visited Dr Seldes today for workers compensation evaluation for shoulder injury I'm currently having. I felt comfortable with the questions asked about my shoulder pain and work issues. He was very informative took time to review my medical records. The office staff were very courteous and friendly

Dr. Seldes is an excellent orthopedic surgeon. I first met Dr. Seldes when I needed my shoulder fixed. He has since repaired my left knee, and most recently my left hip due to arthritis. I am very happy with his work.

I was nervous about my knee since nothing helped. Spent 2 minutes with me to tell me I have extensive damage (really?!), and did in 2 months he'd try injection and take it from there. He was on his cell a lot of the time. Not recommending him.

So after waiting for over 2 and a half hours, for my initial consultation with Dr Seldes, I went to the nurse and told her that I would be leaving, and had no more time to be wasted. That sent them temporarily into a tizzy...the doc ran after me....kinda sorta attempted an apology...and three hours later, he had seen my knee ( I all ready knew what was wrong), and I scheduled an operation with him Cut to this week.....have waited almost 6 weeks for operation.....cancelled an entire week of work......wife re arranged schedule so she could pick me up from hospital..take care of me....etc...and yup...you guessed it......at 3 pm Monday afternoon, barely 16 hrs prior to my Tues morning scheduled surgery...the doctor had his office secretary call me and cancel. Let me cut to the chase...took the doctor DAYS to even call me back, and the only reason this unprofessional doctor even bothered to call...is because I sent him and invoice, billing him for my lost wages this week. More to follow

Great doctor and specialist. I was at four orthopedists, and dr Seldes was the first one who coped with my husband. He paid attention, looked at everything, prescribed treatment. Six months later, I'll make an appointment with him again. Very pleased with the doctor

Dr. Seldes did a full joint replacement for my son after he had a sports trauma. He guided us through the entire process, was very patient about all of my questions as well as very caring and understanding. I would like to recommend him as a very reliable and trustworthy doctor who will do his best to help anyone in need!

Total joint replacement of hip was a task that Dr. Seldes accomplished very fast and efficient. I was extremely happy when I woke up and realized that all went great, simple and easy. He is a doctor who can be trusted, who takes care of his patients as family. I very much recommend him!

I appreciate Dr. Richard Seldes for being thorough with the examination of my Son’s injury. He had a fall, and it was later found out that he had a torn ligament in the hip joint. He had a surgery of the hip, and his recovery was great
