Patient Comments (12)
in Burnsville, NC |
Have seen this Dr twice. Very knowledgeable and quick. He has a very dry wit, which , by reading some of these comments I see some folks could not deal with. I personally think he is a very good Dr and knows his business. Thank you Dr Seal
Asheville, nc |
I have first hand knowledge of what a skilled surgeon he is. It's not always about how much you like a doctor, but more how competent and skilled they are. I've seen hundreds of his patients do better than other doctors who are "nicer" than he is. I choose a good outcome over personality. But I do agree that if you do not understand your condition and you've mentioned you did not understand, you should not leave without a clear understanding of what your condition entails. He is a really good
Hendersonville, NC |
Curt to the point of rudeness. I wouldn't really care about that if he had done anything to try and determine what's wrong with my ears. Spent three minutes with me at the most. I will not be returning. Now I understand why he had the first available appointment.

This doctor was like meeting an iceberg (very cold) No bedside manners. The office staff was very nice. But won't go see Dr Stephen Seal again.
Asheville, NC |
We went in with issue of the therapy, not knowing what's going on. After 4 visits and 2 different kinds of medicine and a biopsy, we are no closer to what's going on. Thank you for nothing.
Etowah, NC |
I found Dr. Seal to be kind, thoughtful, and caring with our nine month old when she needed tubes. I think he got the job done efficiently and competently. He was compassionate towards me as I was nervous for my daughter the day of the surgery. I would recommend him to others.

Stay away from this guy. He is surly and doesn't seem to care. I have no idea if he is good at medicine. He explained almost nothing about my condition. I later went to another doctor about my sudden hearing loss who only said I should have been treated earlier if there was to be any chance of stopping my hearing loss.
in Leicester NC |
Such a dry human. Didn't read note of my referral about the reason I was there. Said if I didn't know what was going on he surely didn't. Performed a biopsy on my neck after assessing that I had an issue at my thyroid/throat region. Painful. No empathy. Then didn't get enough cells! Asked me to return to do it again, on my dime. Was told that's common - a clever way to get more money in my opinion. may have cancer, dont know. Gonna screw around waste money, then leave you no better than before

Dr seal changed my sons life. He Gave him a live to hear what he couldn't. My son grew up with lots of ear infection and had lost a lot of his hearing with the help and care of dr seal he has a better life Thank you, Sonja Hyatt
in Asheville, NC |
Very superficial evaluation of ear disorder - didn't even look at the ear. Had a referral to a different DR., but since I had apparently been seen by him for throat problem (surgery preformed out of state) , they switched my appointment to him without asking or notifying me. Result - total waste of time. Will be seeking out another practice - possibly in Greenville.

Dr. Seal is an excellent doctor and I would recommend without hesitation. I found Dr. Seals to be kind and compassionate. He did surgery and I am most grateful for the wonderful results.
in Asheville, NC |
I had been told by my Doctor he did not have a good bedside manner, but that he was very good. I do not know how he could be good when he doesn't even listen to you. He fails to realize that often ties a person is coming to him in sever pain( as I did) and about to run out of ideas of what to do. He treats you like you are supposed to defend your very existence, at least defend why you dared to darken his doorstep. Sound pretty dramatic? Well, let me tell you I am know drama queen. He's AWFUL
