Both of my children are seen by Dr. Seshul. He handles them amazingly well. My youngest, who is 6, is Autistic. Dr. Seshul is firm but slips jokes in, and it makes it easier for my son to pay attention through the appointment. Dr. Sehsul is quick with his evaluation, yet thorough. It makes it so much easier with small children.

Dr. Seshul's Care Philosophy

As an Otolaryngologist/Head and Neck Surgeon, my goal is to provide the best care to my patients for head and neck problems through a thorough and thoughtful evaluation, as well as offering up to date management options. Often patients have more than one diagnosis contributing to their problem, and I try to consider relevant diagnoses to help identify and treat my patients. My additional training and experience in Allergy is an important adjunct in helping manage a variety of ENT problems.
