Review of Dr. Saigal

- in Lynnwood, WA |

I have given his card to at least 20 people after the extraordinary care he gave me for very large disc herniation of L4. He did microdiscectomy two weeks after my first appointment with him at Harborview Medical Center and I can't say enough wonderful things about him and everyone at Harborview who took care of me before and after surgery!

Review of Dr. Failor


I am astonished that the other reviewer would say such kind and compassionate things about this doctor. This doctor must have something going on that would make him behave absolutely the polar opposite of what the other reviewer has stated. The person that I encountered it refers to himself as Dr. Failor, Was a bizarre, dissociated, unfriendly, even mean spirited person who showed me absolutely no care or bedside manner. He would not even give me any guidance to go to find care or somewhere else

Review of Dr. Miller

-Seattle, WA |

Am I seeing a different doctor? I've had Dr. Miller for 7 years and he continues to be a disappointment. Unless you are mid-seizure this guy doesn't care. I've been having partial seizures every week, he just, over the phone, continues to increase my meds. That's it. He'll see me once a year, but other than that, no concern. Now my hair is falling out, I suffer from exhaustion and memory loss, but "it's no big deal". This is no exaggeration. Look elsewhere. Or good luck.

Review of Dr. Rapport II

- in Seattle |

Rapport is one of those physicians who's so full of himself that there's no actual discussion. Whatever the patient says, or tries to say, is dismissed. He'll TELL you [blank]. There is no discussion about [blank]. When I tried to discuss/explain anything, he cut me off mid-sentence. Repeatedly. He's also careless in reading of charts before speaking to patients. Lastly, he is unstable. When he realized he'd made a mistake he yelled at me, "It's chaos around here!" and stormed out of the room.

Review of Dr. Sekhar

- in Boise, ID |

Dr Sekhar was my second opinion and my final choice when it came to an acoustic neuroma. I saw two more opinions after him that had different approaches and procedures, but he was patient to answer my further questions both via email and phone call. There came a time that I nervously put off the surgery, but no complications or adverse symptoms occurred and I always felt 100% confident with Dr Sekhar. I won't forget his kindness, his steady hand, and his time. Audrey, his PA, rocks!!!

Review of Dr. Sekhar

- in Walla Walla |

Dr. Sekhar saved my life by putting 2 clips in for my 1.1 cm, very large brain anuerysm . I will be forever grateful to this very skilled surgeon. The nurse (Pamela, not Pam as she corrected me) was another story. Berating me until I was in tears for smoking, I quit the day before surgery 4 years ago but the last thing I needed was the stress of her scolding me right before the surgery. I'm alive to complain about this nurse due to this great man...thank you Dr. SEHKAR

Review of Dr. Sekhar

-South Colby |

Dr. Ask her saved my life when I had a ruptured brain aneurysm, he then found more before they ruptured. He is very skilled in what he does, his staff for the most part is awesome!

Review of Dr. Kim

- in Seattle, WA |

Dr. Kim performed my ACoM brain aneurysm clipping and I was discharged from the hospital 2 days later. My recovery has been smooth and I am returning to work slowly, after only 2 weeks of recovery. To say that he is an amazing surgeon and cares about his patients is an understatement. He is my neurosurgeon for life. Highly recommended.
