Specialties

Dr. Andrew G Seltzer has the following 2 specialties

  • Anesthesiology

    Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
    Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
    Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.

One Star

He referred me for an MRI and then my next available appointment was one full month later. I asked for my MRI and they keep saying they will call me back but do not call me back. Dr. Zeltzer wouldnt even shake my hand when i met him. He was not polite and spent about 3 minutes with me. One of the worst Doctors i have eve seen.

would never go again

Dr Sletzer has wasted 2 years of my life. He only spends 5 min max with patientsno matter they pain level, will not give adiquit pain control, and thinks injections will fix all. I have major pain, in er right now die to his lack of ever calling back. Worst mistake I have made. Now wants to send me to a Dr with poor reviews in beverly hills. He never mentioned any thing other than injections for my pain even after I've had success with other treatments . You have been warned

utilization review

Dr. Seltzer read one may be two pages pages out of a book full treatment to provide an opinion on my utilization review for my treatment of pain. I had a ladder break on me in 2004 in which i fell 8ft and landed on my tailbone. I broke my left wrist in three places as well as broke a piece off of my spine and ruptured two disks. I had surgery in 2005 and the surgeon said he would probably see me back in 5 years. Well it has been 11 and the only thing that has helped me mange pain on a daily basis and allowed me to continue to work is my low dose of Norco. It does not even come close to taking care of all my pain, but if I took enough pain meds to deal with all of the pain I would not be able to work. Thanks to Dr. Selter and his poor review of my case I am now being denied my pain meds. He recommended alternate therapy but could not even describe what he meant by that. Let me see, over the years I have tried everything. But with our horrible Workers Comp system the deny every alternate form of therapy. Pray that this guy is not responsible for deciding your pain management. If you happen to read this you can probably identify the poor soul you have only caused more harm too. Please stop being part of the problem and quit doing reviews without actually consulting with the patient or at least their practitioner.

Great doctor!

From the 1st doctor has kept me informed, explaining even the pictures on my MRI and what they represent. He has always made it easy to communicate w him and to get in when necessary even if it is between normal appts.
