At first I was dissapointed with the treatment. The staff was on the rude side. The time spent with Dr. Seldes was too quick. I was not sure what I was getting myself into. The hospital where I had my knee replacement surgery done was North Shore Forest Hills, this hospital sucked! I chose to do rehab at North Shore Manhasset thank God for that! I am so greatful for Dr. Seldes. He knew what he was doing. I am now pain free. I can walk again. I have recommended Dr. Seldes to my friends. He really is a good doctor.

"DO NOT USE THIS DOCTOR"

Terrible doctor. Stay away from him. More interested in seeing as many patients as possible. Spends no time with you. Suggests physical therapy even before an MRI Diagnosis is incorrect. Took is word for what I needed, did the operation that he suggested at his facility in NJ which he is a partial owner only to find out needed a total hip replacement instead of an arthroscopy.

Uncaring

I agree with the reviews stated below about his short time spent with the patient and his push for physical therapy. I recently had a hip arthroscopy which went well only to find out after the 2 month appointment that he failed to fixed the hip labrum tear for which I still have pain. Unless you ask he won't explain anything and if I had known that the surgery was going to take place in NJ at a place where he is a partial owner I probably would have gone somewhere else if I wasn't in such pain. I picked him because he was close to the hospital where I lived. I really have 2nd thoughts about this doctor.

Waste of time

I was referred to Dr. Seldes by my mother. She had 2 surgeries done by him so i figured why not when i began having problems with my right hip. I had previously had an MRI done and brought the films with me along with the report from the radiologist. After waiting (which is fine its no big deal) i am taken into an exam room where i proceed to wait about 20 more minutes. I was taken for an xray which i said i didnt need because i have MRI scans and there is nothing wrong with my bones but his MA's insisted upon it. Once that was done he came into the room and was VERY rushed. He barely looked at the pointless xray and didnt bother to look at my MRI's....he only checked the rotation on my hip (again not the problem since i have a medial tear which i told him) he prescribed Physical Therapy 3xs a wk and pain medication. I barely got to say a word before he was out the door. When i finally was able to see what he prescribed me i called my mother upset because he didnt even bother to look at my chart and see that i was on regular medication that has interactions with other drugs. SPECIFICALLY drugs with aspirin in them....LIKE THE ONE HE PRESCRIBED ME. He did not even take the time to read my chart. Would not recommend him...oh and to make it better...this was over a month ago...Have not heard from his office yet.
