"Dr. Seidel takes lots of time, listens, is disarming in a way that you tell her everything. She answers questions thoroughly and is helping me manage chronic conditions and make decisions about a surgery that I need. Her office is very responsive if you have an acute condition and need a same day appointment. She is very knowledgeable but not afraid to tell you when she doesn't know something and will recommend a specialist."
“I believe all patients are entitled to respectful listening and a shared approach to their care. My philosophy is to be proactive in care; to prevent disease and complications of disease by managing not just medications, but lifestyle. I strive to provide the care people need and want when they need and want it. I believe in a “whole person” approach to care: I try to understand the greater context of my patients’ lives and thus help them overcome barriers to improved health and well-being.”
“With over 25 years of experience, I continue to provide compassionate care for my patients. I truly enjoy getting to know each and every person. The personal relationship between provider and patient is just as important as the healthcare relationship.”
“I believe that children, parents and their providers must work together as a team to provide excellent pediatric healthcare. Every child is unique and special in his or her own way therefore, providing each child and
family individualized attention and care is essential. It is important to provide compassionate care, counseling and support in additon to connecting with my patients and their families in effective and meaningful ways. I also realize I am fortunate to receive wisdom from parents and children to help myself become a better provider and I thank you for allowing me to become part of your family.”
“Health begins at home and in the community. When patients leave our office, I hope they feel empowered by education and resources to make evidence-based decisions about their care and to achieve their individualized physical and mental health goals.”
