This was a referral appointment. Answered all my questions and concerns. Waiting for insurance approval and then will have a follow up appointment to discuss further questions.

*Dr. Iris Seitz is an excellent surgeon. I would go back to her without hesitation. My only (minor) complaint is that she seems to always be behind schedule (delayed). But that said, once she sees you, you get 100% of her attention always.
