Patient Comments (3)
Poughkeepsie, NY |
Poor surgical outcome. He did one post-op visit and one post-discharge visit. He seemed moderately interested in my condition. I opted to not return after that visit. I would not recommend this doctor.

Dr. Selesnick is a kind, patient and extremely competent doctor. His staff is wonderful and very responsive. I cannot recommend him any higher. He and Dr. Stieg saved my life.
