Healthgrades Review

I had a nagging hip injury from overuse during sports and my work. Even though I saw many specialists, my condition did not improve. I struggled for 1.5 years, and started to gain some weight due to inactivity. I was sad because I missed my active lifestyle. The problem was that my condition didn’t show up on MRIs. But, Dr. Sellman knew what condition was plaguing me, while other specialists had no ideas. He treated the situation, and I have had no pain since he treated me. I started slowly exercising again. Three months later, I have lost 20 pounds, and I’m up to 5 miles during my workouts. Being a nurse on my feet, I had been in constant pain until Dr. Sellman fixed my issue. I cannot even begin to tell you how grateful I am to him. I can work comfortably now, and I’m enjoying my active life style again. Thank you, Dr. Sellman.

Dr. Sellman treated a nagging knee injury that was preventing my normal physical exercise. He eventually determined that it was a damaged ligament and a damaged meniscus. He patiently explained all of the options, including surgery. With his care, over time, we were able to resolve the problem with physical therapy and a special brace. I am now once again cycling, sailing and doing yoga … without surgery. Thank you Dr. Sellman.

I thought my ankle was fractured. Dr. Sellman ran more X-Rays then the hospital.  He spotted the fracture and put me in a boot. He re-checked my fracture in 6 weeks.  He has the best personality and bed side manner. I highly recommend him. He’s the Best!!

Came to see Dr. Sellman in early January because of recurring hip pain due to competitive rowing at USF. Dr. Sellman was a great listener and very understanding that not competing was not an option. He offered me multiple different options each visit including icing and physical therapy exercises, suggesting I see the athletic trainer, prescribing a compounding cream, and ultimately cortisone shots a week before States. I am happy to report because of Dr. Sellman and Angel’s help in easing my hip pain, I made it through an entire season of training and my boat took second at States!! Feels so good and I couldn’t have done it without them!
