What People Say About Dr. Kala Seetharaman, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply
At my first visit I realized that I needed to listen intently because Dr. Seetharaman has a soft low voice. Her work is in hematology so we go over my blood report at each visit and she is good at explaining what the lab report is telling us. She is kind and patient (I ask a lot of questions) and I feel with her that we are a team while dealing with my health concerns. She is always willing to listen and answer questions. Additionally, her staff in the hematology dept. at MetroWest Medical are great people (mostly nurses); all kind and supportive of every patient. Dr. Seetharamen has a thorough knowledge of blood disorders so I would definitely recommend her to others.

Dr Seetharaman is very nice and professional . I have problem with a person that's works answering phones .She is not someone that should be working as a customer service person.This whole thing was over getting some blood work done.She did not handle it very professional in my opinion.At the end I never got the blood work done.I could not talk with her anymore.

During our initial visit, Dr. S. was kind, patient, and listened to all I wanted to say. She also explained the results of my tests of 5 yrs ago, which none of my previous doctors had done. She was compassionate and seemed interested and gave me great hope for the future. I recommend her based on one meeting. Carol H.
