I have been having severe pain in my knees. Dr. Sellman wasted no time to get x-rays of not just my knees, but my hips and spine. His thoroughness found a few issues, not all that extraordinary, but issues nonetheless. He was very outgoing and friendly. He put me at ease right away. He had options to help relieve the pain and improve the issues that are just inherent with my age. I highly recommend this group of doctors for any orthopedic needs.
It is a rare occasion that you visit an urgent care in pain, come back for a follow up and the physician asks in detail how have you been since the visit. Dr. Sellman also gave me options for my care, sat eye to eye and waited to see if I had additional questions or concerns. The compassion and care was a rare find!
I have seen Dr. Sellman (sports medicine) many times for separate problems with my knee, hip and shoulder. The thoroughness of his hands on examinations is amazing. I seek alternatives to surgery and, with his direction, have avoided at least two surgeries through the use of braces and physical therapy. It is great to work with a doctor that does more than write prescriptions and referrals.
Dr. Sellman treated my knee when I was injured. He is very professional and funny at the same time. He wants you to be out of pain as fast as he can. The wait time is short. X-rays, MRIs and therapy are located in the same building which is very convenient. The staff is friendly and professional too.
Excellent doctor. Concerned and helpful.
I think Dr. Sellman is a great doctor. Wonderful sense of humor and always willing to listen.
I have been seeing Dr. Sellman for three years. I have had nothing but wonderful treatment from him. He is always kind and takes plenty of time with me. Most of all, he has helped me tremendously. I go with terrible pain and leave with the ability to walk. Thank you for all you have done. You’re the best!
When I first went to see Dr. Sellman, I couldn’t walk an eighth of a mile without severe pain in my left knee. I had been under a pain management physician for about 8 months. Dr. Sellman got me a brace and sent me to a great PT place. I am not spinning 5 times a week, golfing 16 holes every Monday and walking much longer. My dog is so much happier, too. I have a ways to go, but I feel so good being able to exercise at the YMCA with my friends and not having such pain. I have recommended him to friends. I feel so lucky that he was recommended to me from the office of Dr. Hess. Thanks!
Dr. Sellman has a great sense of humor and he provides sensible and understandable explanations.
Dr. Sellman is a very personable person who listens and relates to his patients on a very at-ease level.
Dr. Sellman is a great doctor who strives to help his patients.
Dr. Sellman is incredible! He listens to what you explain to him and his diagnosis is spot on. This is my second visit to him for two different concerns and both times his treatment and recommendations worked. My golf game continues to improve thanks to him. I would recommend Dr. Sellman to anybody with an orthopaedic concern. Thanks again Doc.
Dr. Sellman is phenomenal. Best doctor I have ever been too, hands down! He has fantastic bedside manner. Very funny and please tell him that I am so happy with the service provided. He actually cares about his patients.
After falling down the stairs at my apartment and visiting the ER, I was extremely scared and stressed. I’ve heard about Florida Orthopedic Institute before so I decided to use them. Everything was very fast and efficient. Ms. Denise Fox helped me with directions around the facilities and also did my X-Rays. She was extremely kind and helpful and made sure that we went slow because I was in a lot of pain. Dr. Sellman was very fun and extremely helpful as well. He made me feel a lot more comfortable about the entire situation and made sure that I knew what the process was moving forward. I have been to plenty of medical facilities where doctors and nurses move fast because they are just trying to get people in and out. Ms. Denise Fox from X-Rays and Mr. Sellman made me feel like I had been a patient for years and I am very happy to know that I will be working with kind people during my recovery.

Heather La Cross, ARNP and Mary P. in urgent care took such great care of my knee injury. Thank you!
What a great experience. I’ve had a sports injury with daily pain for over 9 months and I was told by other doctors there is nothing that can be done other than surgery. Dr. Sellman’s diagnosis and treatments were spot on! I got better and got back into playing sports in less than two months. Thank you, Dr. Sellman!

Love, love, love this Doctor! His office is well managed and well run. Dr. Sellman is quirky and very knowledgeable. He makes procedures that would normally hurt not hurt at all! He is up to date on all the latest techniques and his office is definitely state of the art. I went to see him for a knee problem and he quickly diagnosed me on the very first visit. I will never see a different orthopedic doctor as long as he is in town. I would give him more than five stars if I could.
Dr. Sellman treated my daughter for her broken ankle. He was excellent in dealing with her and made her very comfortable. His bedside manor and affability were outstanding and we wanted to thank him and the whole staff at the Florida Orthopaedic Institute!
Dr. Sellman is an amazing doctor. He has guided me successfully through a torn labrum shoulder and femoral stress fracture. In both cases he gave the perfect combination of knowledge and caring. I have recommended him to many!
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!
