*Dr. Seitz is an amazing physician. She gave me back my life. Without her help, my ... may have resulted in something much more aggressive. If you need to wait in her office, it is worth it. You will always get the care & time you need. I am forever grateful.

*Dr. Seitz & her whole team are & were outstanding. Almost makes me wish for another skin cancer, just to have the experience again.
No Rating Given
Dr Seitz was very good, concerned about my needs and expectations about reconstruction options. The only negative was scheduling appointments and the actual surgery as she is so busy, perhaps overbooked with patients, and has limited office hours due to surgery schedules at Edward and Elmhurst Hospitals. One of my post op visits was rescheduled due to her not being in the office, which was further past my 3 month post op coverage ... Trying to fight this. Otherwise she is a great surgeon.

I waited a long time for the appointment, but I did like the doctor. I was given an order for an MRI on 12/18, but have not heard from anyone about when I can have the test.
