Frank Glen Seidel MD

  • "When you're caring for a child, you're caring for their whole family."

I got into pediatrics because I enjoy caring for kids and being a part of their lives. I love the challenge of the technical aspects of my job–but my primary role is providing a great experience for the child. When children come to see me they are sick and scared, and so are their parents. Because I am a parent, I always tell families that I wouldn't do anything to their child that I wouldn't feel comfortable doing to my own child.

I approach the care I provide through the eyes of both the child and the family. I engage children by focusing my conversation on them. I'm always thinking about what the kid is thinking about, and making sure they feel safe.

I'm known as much for my interactions with families as someone who is committed to doing great clinical work. Many radiologists don't have a clinical background in pediatrics–those years of training allow me to bring passion and expertise to my work in caring for children.
