What People Say About Dr. Steven Selden, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply
Don't bother. This practice is too popular and has too many patients to be effective. The staff is curt and dismissive. No bedside manner. No one, including, Dr. Selden, will take the time to listen to the patient and make an assessment based on what the patient is saying. All of my interactions in this were are hurried, like they needed to get to the next patient. Very poor customer experience and responsiveness. Callous attitudes. I will never visit this office ever again.

Dr. Selden was patient, took the time to listen and was considerate to my situation. He was the only positive experience I have had since my injury!

Dr. Sheldon is real pro. He has done rotator cuff repair surgery on both of my shoulders with excellent results; I have full mobility and strength and a recovery faster and less painful than friends and acquaintances who have had the same surgery elsewhere. He has diagnosed other of my injuries and prescribed physical therapy with excellent results.
