Patient Comments (15)
Fast and correct diagnosis on torn rotator cuff. Surgery was done at Fort Collins Surgery Center. Staff was excellent but felt I need a little more time before being sent home. My disappointment was that no one called day after surgery to see how I was doing. I knew lots of physical therapy afterwards and it was. Best thing was the motion machine I was sent home with. I did not have one after knee replacement and noticed a huge difference in mobility.
Great Experience! I healed up very well, my PT said it was the best work she had ever seen! A definite master at his trade.
Thank you very much for your comments! Our best wishes! Armi Hall for Dr. Seiler and OCR
very good experience.
We appreciate your review! Our best wishes! Armi Hall for Dr. Seiler and OCR
Doctor Seiler was great through the whole process and my experience at OCR was excellent. I only wish I had listened to Dr Seiler at my diagnosis and had the surgery right away instead of waiting a few months because my trigger thumb only got worse.

After visiting 4 other doctors, Dr Seiler was the fitst one to correctly diagnose the uric acid build up in my fingers. He corrected the problem quickly!
Thank you for taking the time to give us your comments! Best wishes! Armi Hall for Dr. Seiler and OCR
from the first time to the last visit, it was an exceptional experience. Friendly, caring
We appreciate your review! Best regards! Armi Hall for Dr. Seiler and OCR
I was not looking for a hand surgeon but needed one after an acedental shooting left my right hand severely damaged. Dr Seiler came in early on a Sunday morning listened to my concerns and expectations. I am extremely happy with the out come.
Hello, Thank you very much for your review! Our best wishes! Armi Hall for Dr. Seiler and OCR
After mangling my lower hand and thumb, with a garage door spring, I came to have it fixed and Dr. Seiler did a fantastic job on what he called "something I have never seen before." I wasn't sure if my thumb and hand would ever be the same but it is in very good condition thanks to Dr. Seiler. My hand and thumb have full range of motion and would not have had anyone else work on me.
Top notch dr!
Had a trigger finger release with Dr. Seiler--specificallu asked for him because he did a great job with two prior trigger finger releases and a carpal tunnel release. Didn't even need an aspirin for pain after surgery, and the pain and swelling i'd had before surgery was gone almost immediately.
Dr Seiler is great, this is the second shoulder surgery with him and i feel he is outstanding
in Loveland Co. |
Only scheduled 20min for a new patient. Didn't get a complete history of a 20yr problem. Didn't listen to me. Assumed what my problem was. Didn't have any swelling. Talked me into anti-inflammatory shots I didn't want or NEED. Now I have extreme swelling. Blew me off for 3 weeks. Second visit told him about the swelling, the sharp pains, cold anything causes enough pain to bring tears. He damage the nerves in both hands. Not enough characters to explain all of the damage he has done to my life.
I feel Dr. Seiler is a skilled surgeon but unfortunately in my experience did not communicate well. Pre and post op exams were very brief and he seemed preoccupied and didn't listen to or address my concerns or fully explain the surgical procedure or expected results. My biggest criticism however is that he was not forthright in our doctor/patient relationship (assessment, surgery, rehabilitation, outcome).
