Ratings for Dr. Seth M. Zeidman
I had a lumbar spinal fusion with dr. Zeidman over 10 years ago. At the one-year Mark I started experiencing a creaking in my back and I could also hear it in my head. I made an appointment and went in to see Dr. Zeidman but of course only got to see the physician's assistant. She told me that it was more than likely my muscles being tight. I went back a second time asking for x-rays and was told that there was no need. At that time I was moving to California and saw the neurosurgeon that performed my first microdiscectomy. They took x-rays that same day and showed me that one of my rods on the right side of my back was snapped in half. I had my Hardware replaced the next day. If anybody reads this I would definitely not see Dr. Seth zeidman. They're very nice at first but like another review stated they treat you like cattle as soon as your surgery is over. Do not go see this doctor if you want to get better.
This guy is running a surgery mill. Once you have had surgery and he's got his money, don't expect to see him. You are bounced around from PA to PA with no consistent followup on any detail of your care. If you have poor results, don't expect urgent attention, he will brush you off. Apparently he can do no wrong in his eyes. I am suffering severe lower back pain 9 1/2 months after surgery and he laughed it off. Refused to order any tests beyond an x-ray to determine the cause. His staff in this type of situation is also dismissive and even confrontational, seeking to transfer blame onto the patient. I would not recommend this guy. Avoid!
While Doctor may be very knoweldgeable the office is extremely disorganized and seem to "lose" all information from prior visits. Have had 10+ experiences where I am left in the examination room over an hour before a PA comes in and then at least another 1/2 hr before Doctor comes in. No apologies which I find to be very disrespectful of my time. I will not be returning
