What Our Patients Are Saying
"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!"
"Wonderful Doctor Dr. Afra is an example for all doctors. She takes all the time I need to work through and figure out issues related to my epilepsy. She saw me for an hour during my last appointment. She is kind, thorough, respectful, and recognizes that each epilepsy patient is different. I’ve never had a neurologist this amazing and I’ve had epilepsy my entire life. Dr. Afra is a godsend and I hope she never leaves New York! I need her!"
"Dr. Sethi exceeded my expectations. He is very kind and approachable and has lead me in the right direction following head trauma which caused bleeding on the brain. He allowed me as well as my family members an unmeasured amount of office time giving us his undivided attention and expertise. He studied all my prior test results thoroughly. Dr. Sethi is always available to answer my calls and texts and is an extremely dedicated and caring physician."
