He gets it and he hears me when I speak

I have met with doctors who herd me like cattle and when i express my concerns about my body, their egos kick in and they have to know where I got that information rather than hearing that I have a pain of some sort and I need the problem solved. Dr. Seal was the first doctor that wanted to get to know my health in a way where he could gather all the blood work and tests he could to get to the bottom of why I can't have a baby. He understands my blood levels and was able to explain them in a way that I can understand. I got emotional with him when we started finding answers and expressed my gratitude for him and his willingness to hear me and understand my body rather than herd me to get to his next appointment. I am truly so grateful for his knowledge and his willingness to continue to practice even at his older age for my benefit. One woman has always lived 2 hours away and has come to see him for 20 years! I couldn't believe that when I met her in his Lobby/ waiting area. It says everything about him!

I had been a patient of Dr Seal's for a few years as had my daughter, he delivered two of my grandchildren. I needed a hysterectomy which dr Seal performed. I contracted Necrotising Fasciitis after surgery and almost died. I spent 6 weeks in the hospital and months at home on wound care. When my insurance company took back some money from Dr Seal for overpayment I saw another side of the office. I was treated horribly by Carrie and Danielle (dr Seal's wife) Told I was going to be sent to collections if I didn't pay. Now understand I was still working with my insurance company on this and when the insurance rep tried to talk to Danielle she couldn't get a word in and was yelled at for at least 10 minutes. I paid the bill to stop being sent to collections but am still working with the insurance company to get it paid. My point is that I nearly died under Dr Seal's care and all the office staff and I assume Dr Seal could care about was MONEY!! I think Dr Seal is just getting too old to practice, he did a full abdominal hysterectomy which I think contributed to the infection, he is old school. No only did I go through horrific medical trauma but the verbal abuse from the billing staff was totally uncalled for. I paid the bill to stop it going to collections but am still working with the insurance company hoping they will reimburse me. Please understand I have paid thousands to this office over the years and always on time but at the first hiccup with insurance they are HORRIBLE. Please, Please if you read this find another doctor but if you decide to go here don't say you weren't warned.

Dr Seal is also a family physician and homeopath. He is the ONLY doctor I have seen who has ever connected the dots. Even my previous PCP (a doctor of internal medicine) wasn't as good and comprehensive as Dr Seal. If my insurance would allow it, he would be the only doctor I would ever see again.

Was running 15 minutes late and called to notify staff was told don't bother you need to reschedule. I explained I teach and cannot get more time off. Very unfriendly staff. Don't really need new patients I guess.
