He has been very helpful. His extensive knowledge of MS and his understanding of what I am going through. I am very fortunate to have a kind, helpful and very knowledgeable Dr. Thank you Dr. Selchen you are very much appreciated.

Great doctor, low key but very professional. He is worth the wait when schedules go crazy. Would highly recommend this doctor.

The reviews below prepared us well for our initial meeting with Dr Selchen. The resident who did intake was super personable, and yeah, Dr Selchen is a bit of a mad scientist type - which is exactly what you want from a neurologist. Sure, he talks tech with the resident while you're in the room, but you can google that stuff later (take notes!), and yeah, his office is messy, but he can find anything in that stack of files within seconds. He's a quirky einstein-y kinda guy with a dry sense of humour. His style worked for us, but sure, it might not work for everyone. Basically - read every review on these pages: individually, they're meaningless, but in aggregate, they give you a good sense of what to expect from Dr. Selchen.

Dr. Selchen became my doctor after Dr O'Connor (who had been my doctor for over a debate) retired. I used to have regular check-ups (each 6 months) and MRIs (annually) in addition to symptom-specific checkups and MRIs. In the last 2 years, Dr Selchen has only scheduled one checkup and no MRIs. He was tardy for the checkup and instead of speaking to me, she spoke to his resident. I was hardly a bystander. The appointment lasted mere minutes.

Dr. Selchen has the messiest office I have ever seen, but he knew where things were. I asked my GP to refer me to him. I really liked his manner and sense of humour. There wasn't really that much he could do, other than what had already been done. I feel he is very well qualified.

I have been a patient of Dr. Selchen since 1998. I feel like he has been by my side through it all, from the very beginning when I refused to believe I had MS to now, when there is no denying it. His office can be messy, he can be sometime a bit vague in his answers but he is extremely knowledgeable and intelligent. He has the right connections to get you fast MRIs and he knows everything there is to know about a disease that is still quite a mystery. He certainly knows my name, knows about my family and always remembers the important facts he needs to know about my case. He got me on the right medication and when I have an attack I can always count on him and his staff. He is a very good specialist.

Dismissive, and inattentive. I have been to three appointments with Dr Selchen at the MS Clinic over the past year and a half. My time with Selchen was very short, and none of my questions were answered. He switched my medication and would not try to explain why. (I'm checking to see if this has to do with the drug company funding him.) He did not check to see if I understood anything that he was telling me, and he didn't address the questions I put forward to his staff. He gave me new medication for pain, but didn't tell me anything about it. He just said "Here, try this. Call the nurse in few weeks and let her know if it works." The treatment I have received had made me feel very down. I would have felt better if I had missed the appointment.

I was treated with such a dismissive attitude. Absolute lack of emotion, lack of organization, lack of knowledge too. It took me months to get over that appointment. He didn't know where my file was, seemed very agitated, confused. Was very cold hearted, rude. We waited over an hour only to be treated very badly. I am the patient. YOU actually work for ME! You act as if I'm an annoyance when I was perfectly polite & respectful. He was very rude & disrespectful. I have a serious illness, I felt so much sicker after that appt because of him.

He is a great caring doctor. After reading some reviews with their dislike for him, I understand. We the patient suffering from a mysterious disease, frustrating us that one day we can hike with our family to the simply next day making it impossible to move out of bed to put socks on. We won't answers and become normal again and thinking he can help us as if it like soar that, but he isn't. He is a doctor who took his time to educate himself becoming a doctor and trys to help his patients to live a better life. Oh the only reason y he doesn't get 5 in punctuality is because nobody is perfect he does come late sometimes....like come on traffic woke up late he is human
