Patient Comments (2)

in Stockton, MD
I have had several procedures performed by Dr. Sechler over 12 years. He is an excellent surgeon and has a great bedside manner. He is extremely knowledgeable and professional, but is very humble. I have referred him to others several times and they have the same opinion of his abilities.
