Dr. John J Seaberg III has the following 3 specialties

  • Surgery of the Hand

    Hand surgeons are certified surgeons who are also experts in the function and structure of your wrists, hands and forearms. This allows them to treat arthritis, carpal tunnel, trigger finger and tennis elbow, most of which tend to result from repetitive and excessive use of the corresponding joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments.
    Hand surgeons also commonly work with patients who have fractures or broken bones from any kind of accident. If you're experiencing any kind of general pain in your hand, wrist or forearm that isn’t going away, a hand surgeon is probably your best resource.

  • Surgery
  • Plastic Surgery

    A plastic surgery specialist is a physician with extensive training in the execution of plastic surgery procedures.
    Plastic surgery is the use of surgical procedures to rebuild or reshape injured or misshapen body parts. Congenital defects, such as a cleft lip or palate, can be corrected by a plastic surgery specialist. Injuries sustained during auto accidents also may require the services of a plastic surgery specialist. These procedures fall under the category of reconstructive plastic surgery.

If I could give this review zero stars, I would. The level of disrespect and rudeness I experienced during my consultation with Dr. Seaberg was unbelievable. From making me feel extremely unwelcomed to asking me why my last name wasn't Jones, I couldn't believe I was interacting with a so-called professional. Initially, I thought nothing of his poor racial "joke" regarding my last name but that coupled with his extremely condescending tone and cold manner brought me to deem him a disgusting racist. Because I was so offended, I couldn't even complete my consultation. I told him about his immense lack of social skills, his offensive mannerisms, and his inappropriate racial joke in hopes that he'll go out of his way to make future patients of color feel a lot more comfortable than I did. If possible, I advise non-white individuals to seek another surgeon at all costs. We're clearly not welcomed at his office and he's made that very clear to me. Yes, he has great reviews but let's look at the individuals writing them. I wouldn't trust this man to cut an apple for me let alone into my chest. On the bright side, he's probably a great surgeon though. It's just a shame that such a great talent had to be wasted on an individual like himself.

Definitely not "one of the best"

Dr Seaberg is the most unprofessional Doctor I've ever met. If you want good medical care from a doctor who cares and doesn't talk to you like you're a big hassle for him/her, I suggest avoiding Dr. Seaberg. I don't consider someone who speaks to me like he did to be "one of the best" in his field. More like the worst. I would never speak to one of my customers the way he spoke to me. You can do better!

Avoid this doctor. To sum him up: condescending, rude, bully, self-contradictory, makes assumptions that are incorrect and then holds onto them like a dog with a bone. You can find someone better.

Very poor bedside manner. When i asked if I could shower, post opt 5 days, he replied,"I am really getting tired of people asking if they can shower, I don't know why people are so fixated on going and a day without showering." Actually it had been 5 days and I am a rule follower. I wasn't challenging him. I wanted to know. Then he said I could shower but if I had disasterous results than you know what it's from. My mouth was hung open. Then he unwrapped my incision and he said," looks like you didn't like my dressings?!" The ace bandaged was rubbing and he forgot that he told me to not use it. Then he asked me if I was still taking pain medicine. I told Him yes I was, he then commented how weird that was because most people don't need it. I am not most people. Most people don't have fibromyalgia and feel like a truck has hit them Either.

Wish I would have done it sooner!

I recently had a breast augmentation done by Dr. Seaberg and I cannot begin to explain how happy I am with the results! I have always wanted larger breasts but was always scared of actually getting the procedure done. During the initial free consult with Dr. Seaberg, he answered all of my questions and gave me his recommendation on what type of implant (saline vs. silicone) and profile (high, moderate, or low) would look best for my body frame. I have already recommended Dr. Seaberg to people I know and will continue to do so! His professionalism made the entire process enjoyable and put me at ease. It has been a little more than a month since my procedure, and the results are more than I could have ever hoped for. My breasts are now proportional to my body and I feel so much more feminine and comfortable in my skin. This experience has changed my life forever, and I am forever grateful to Dr. Seaberg for his wonderful work!
