I had shoulder injuries as a result of a car accident and ended up needing surgery. Dr. Seldes and their team were attentive and made sure I was informed of all the things involved. They were diligent with follow up and making sure I arranged for the proper therapy. I would highly recommend Dr. Seldes

I went to Dr. Seldes who came highly recommended from a friend who went to him for shoulder surgery. I was having terrible shoulder pain from working out. Dr. Seldes was so kind and didn't rush to say I needed surgery. He recommended to try physical therapy first because it was a slight tear. He also took a lot of time to explain what exercises I can do at the gym and what I should stay away from. I didn't feel rushed at all and he was very caring. I have found relief for now but I know if I need surgery I would be in excellent hands as I have seen how well my friend has recovered from her surgery. The office staff was also very nice and personable. I would highly recommend Dr. Seldes.

Dr. Seldes performed arthroscopic surgery on my hip. I hurt it in a car accident and I couldn't sit or stand, let alone run or go to the gym. I saw 3 doctors before I saw Dr Seldes and each one of them said there was nothing that could be done. Dr. Seldes diagnosed me with a torn hip labrum and impingement and performed the surgery. There was minimal pain after the surgery and now I have absolutely no pain in my hip. He REALLY gave me my life back. I can't thank him and his staff enough. They are superb. I have recommended Dr. Seldes to several of my friends and coworkers

I was having shoulder pain for years and from an old car accident and it got to the point where I couldn’t move my shoulder or sleep at night. I saw Dr. Seldes and he was nice and confidently explained my problem and gave me my options. I liked the fact that he didn’t push surgery right away. We started with therapy and an injection which help me for about 6 months then the pain came back. I then had surgery by Dr. Seldes and the pain went away completely. Now I am able to use my arm and even go back to playing volleyball which I love to do. His staff was very helpful to me before and afer my surgery. There is a bit of a wait at his office but Dr. Seldes is worth the wait!

Dr Seldes is amazing. He performed shoulder surgery on me. He was thorough in explanation, always timely and I’ve had great interactions with him. One of the best!

i saw Dr. Seldes for my shoulder and knee. I injured both while playing basketball. I was unable to play or even do everyday activities because of my shoulder and knee. It hurt everyday. After I saw Dr Seldes I knew he was the doctor for me. He diagnosed the problems quickly (which other doctors weren't sure what the problem was). He recommended therapy and a shot which helped for a short period of time, then the pain came back. He then recommended surgery for my knee and shoulder. He explained everything in detail and made me feel comfortable. He was caring and answered all of my questions. His staff was very friendly and helped me every step of the way. And most importantly my pain went away. I don't have any problems with my everyday life and I am playing basketball again. Than you to Dr seldes! He is he best. I have already recommended him to my 2 of my friend and they are happy too.

I am recouping from arthroscopic surgery of my right knee with MINIMAL DISCOMFORT and SWELLING. Dr. Richard Seldes and supporting staff are professionals and more importantly, amazing!!!!!!

In 2002, I had arthroscopic surgery for a torn meniscus in my left knee. The pain and suffering I sustained afterwards was horrifying at best. The surgeon, who I will not name, that performed the surgery should become an apprentice of Dr. Seldes.

For anyone who is in dire need of arthroscopic SURGERY AND HAVE SECOND THOUGHTS please consider Dr. Seldes as a first choice you will not regret it.

The office is clean, staff is friendly. Doctor Seldes is knowledgeable, supportive, and easy to talk to. I am able to walk again because he did my total hip replacement. I highly recommend him for surgery and orthopedic advice.

I recommend the work of Dr. Richard Seldes. He did perfect work on my left shoulder. He did the surgery called Arthroscopic Surgery. So far I am recovering. I have not felt serious pain. Everything has been very minimal. On the other hand I wanted to comment something about a person who has left a bad review for Dr. Seldes and his team.
I see how another person leaves a bad comment because he has had to wait a long time at the time of his appointment. That is something that I consider normal, it is not a visit to the mechanic to repair your car you are doing. It is dealing with your health and you have to take your time to avoid making mistakes. I think that Doctor Seldes does an exceptional job and his team work equally. They are all very nice and nice people.
