Very smart with substance abuse
My husband had a big addiction problem with Ritalin and alcohol. This doc picked it up within minutes and refused to give him any more . Offered alternate medicines. In the long run this has worked out well for BOTH of us. Thank God!

Through the VA. Dr. Sekhon did not make any effort to consider me personally. He was passive and dismissive. It seemed to me that he would rather have been someplace else. I spoke with him on 2 occasions and neither served any benefit. Perhaps he was better in private practice and decided to go to the VA as a form of being able to continue to collect a check without providing any care at all never the less quality care. He made several references about his 30= years of experience. I would not take any person or thing to him for medical consideration. It was an absolute and total waste of time. This is an unbiased and objective evaluation of my appointments.

I saw this doctor at an inpatient center. He screwed me over so badly. He never spent more than 2 minutes with me. Every day he said I could leave the next day and then never followed through, causing turmoil and trauma to my husband and kids. He threatened me in order to force his meds on me, when they were not helping and most certainly hurting me. This man was a nightmare and should be subjected to the same torture he inflicts on his patients.

Dr. Sekhon, off the bat, was mistrustful and condescending. He was unable to listen to my concerns and instead asked irrelevant questions such as "what type of work does your boyfriend do". He proceeded to change medication that I have been managing successfully for past 3 years while calling me an "addict". Please continue searching for a doctor if your interested in really getting better.
