Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Seftel "Even as a child, I knew I wanted to be a doctor. In fact, my father was an ear, nose and throat physician right here in Santa Cruz, and I?m proud to carry on this family tradition. It?s a privilege to have a specialty practice where I grew up and give back to the people within the community. That?s why I?ve stayed in the area."
