Initial Appointment:[ ]. Dr. Seides apparently reviewed my file prior to my arrival, which is very important to me, and we discussed my condition and the prognosis. He informed me to have another test in three months. I admire his entire demeanor - there aren't very many physicians these days that actually care. I understand what he wants me to do, and we have a follow-up plan in place. The staff is friendly, professional, and kind. (It hurts me to say that I'm so disappointed in the healthcare system in the 2010's+.)

Dr Seides has a wonderful way of explaining the potentially scary aspects of less than ideal outcomes that is hopeful & upbeat. His recommendations come with asking for your thoughts, he takes charge of scheduling tests, etc. & made me feel safe & confident in his care.

Pharmaceutical, device, and biotechnology companies frequently collaborate with basic scientists and physicians within an academic medical center to help advance science and improve patient care.
