I went to follow up with Dr. Sekhar for the first time after my surgery. He didn’t even give me 5 minutes in the room, didn’t let me voice my concerns and rushed right out the door. I drove 40 minutes away just for him to not even give me the time of day really disappointing. I just feel like a number and I may not even follow up with him again.

Dr Sekhar was great and very gentle during my upper endoscopy - I had no hoarseness and went great. The staff is always smiling and friendly.
