Dr. Seidner was our family doctor starting on Teall Ave in the 60’s. I saw him up until the time I found out he had retired from North Medical. I will never forget his diagnosis of nodules on my thyroid when I was in my 20’s. He just felt my neck and sent me to a surgeon where I had a partial thyroidectomy. Another doctor had basically said I was crazy. I remember getting calls around 7:30 a.m. giving me my results of blood work or tests. There are no doctors like him anymore. My sincere condolences to the family for a man who my family depended on and we could talk about anything with.
