What Our Patients Are Saying


"There are no words that can adequately express my gratitude for having the honor of Dr. Sethi treat my son. We were basically floundering in the medical field with no real answers. The whole process from the ladies at the front desk to scheduling test to getting test results. He is an expert in his field, takes the time to fully explain his medical assessment. Was there for follow up questions, referrals to other professionals. A real rarity was he promptly addressed concerns and returned calls in a very short time. He is the epitome of an excellent doctor. What a pleasure seeking medical help would be if all were like him."

"I have been seeing Dr. Sethi for over 10 years. He's exceptional in every way: punctual, friendly, knowledgeable, takes problems very seriously but does not over-react & over-order tests, etc. He also always returns phone calls. Can't speak highly enough for this knowledgeable & compassionate doctor."

"Highly recommended It has been a positive experience with Dr. Sethi overall. He re- evaluated me for epilepsy and weaned me off Keppra successfully. He is a discerning and rather meticulous clinician who leaves no loose ends while managing your case. He was unrushed and thorough in his approach and patiently worked with me while formulating a treatment plan to choose an option that suited me best while carefully considering alternatives. He was readily available to respond to my queries and concerns during admission and post discharge. A compassionate physician who partners with the patient at every step in recovery. It took a while to get an appointment with his busy schedule but the outcome was well worth the wait!"
