Ralph E. Seligmann, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I went into medicine to help people. A physician should be a teacher who can explain to people, in understandable language, the human physiology and what is required to help maintain wellness.  He should be able to guide patients in making decisions appropriate for their individual needs, when healthy and when ill.
My staff and I are committed to providing patients with the time necessary to address all their issues and concerns, ask all their questions and allow follow-up as often as necessary.  We will listen to you in order to provide you with medical care you desire and use our training, knowledge and understanding to help you enjoy a healthier life.
