I am so grateful that Dr. Sethi is my neurologist. I reached out to him with a condition and within a short amount of time I was able to see him and he was hands-on with communicating with me to arrange my imaging and followed up quickly with the results. He provided me with such caring, thorough, and prompt treatment. His concern, availability, and kindness was so appreciated, and I knew I was in such capable, knowledgeable hands. Very thankful!

I am so lucky to have Dr. Sethi as my doctor! He is a top notch, professional, highly knowledgeable, truly caring doctor. Dr. Sethi is an excellent listener, was empathetic to my concerns regarding my recovery from TBI, and really took the time to thoroughly explain and educate me so that I fully understood his diagnosis, treatment, and healing instructions. Dr. Sethi has helped me to heal with his great balance of helping me understand the serious nature of my injury while at the same time being compassionate, kind, and positive in helping me learn how to really heal.

Dr. Sethi has been extremely thorough and helpful in the prognosis and council of my brother after his TBI. He was very straightforward and honest, balancing the reality with the emotion. He treated my brother as if it was his own child, encouraging him that his condition will be figured out. I would definitely recommend Dr. Sethi and look forward to meeting with him again.

I feel that Dr. Sethi has been very helpful with me when it comes to me keeping my epilepsy under control. I am so blessed that I have not had any breakthrough seizures. I am so happy that Dr. Sethi is offering me such helpful remote services during this pandemic so that we can all reduce the number of COVID cases in New York City and New York State as well as in most of the world. I am very lucky that I get to see Doctor Sethi twice a year. I have been sleeping very well. I am blessed that all of my medications are working well for me and not giving me any side effects. I can't week to see him again in person once we beat COVD-19. I feel that Doctor Sethi is a very helpful and caring and outreaching neurologist in Manhattan.

Dr Sethi has been my neurologist for 12+ years. He is the most caring doctor.Dr Sethi gives 100% dedication to his patients. He has kept me seizure free since 2011. Dr Sethi is always there even on his off hours. I have epilepsy and he was there for me during my 2 pregnancies , and I have two healthy sons ages 9 and and 11. He monitored me very closely and made sure I stayed seizure free with both pregnancies. Dr Sethi is the mastermind of neurology,and I would recommend from this doctor to anyone newly diagnosed or already with epilepsy.He truly changed my life ,to be able to live no longer in fear of my condition. He is an amazing doctor that puts his heart and soul into his care to patients. I

A gem of a physician! Dr. Sethi has been a valuable member of my health team. His care and concern are only overshadowed by his medical expertise. Nothing about my care was routine yet Dr. Sethi met every challenge with calm and thoughtful input reflection on the way to move forward.

Very good doctor. Takes the time to listen and evaluate all of your concerns. Then spends time explaining his thoughts and diagnosis in layman’s terms that you can understand. I will personally continue to see Dr. Sethi when needed... (hopefully no more concussions :))

I visited Dr. Sethi for a second opinion after concussion symptoms had persisted for several months. I wish I had seen him in the first place! Dr. Sethi is truly an expert when it comes to TBI and concussion - he was able to assuage my fears and give actionable steps to aide in my recovery. When I followed up via email a month or so after my original appt, to my surprise I received a call directly from him not even 30 minutes later. I've never had a physician demonstrate this level of attentiveness.

We visited Dr. Sethi for a second opinion following our son's recent diagnosis of Temporal Lobe Epilepsy. He was very thorough and provided clarification on many things we were unsure of regarding Epilepsy. He made my son feel comfortable and helped us understand the nature of his seizures and how to best move forward. Dr. Sethi has made himself available to answer questions following our appointment and is very responsive to emails. He has even offered to consult with our local doctors to provide the best care possible.

I had an excellent experience with Dr. Sethi. I made an appointment with him because he takes my insurance and is part of Weill Cornell, which is a top hospital system. I did not know him. I was more than pleasantly surprised. Dr. Sethi is kind and thorough. He addressed the problem that I went to him for, but he was also interested in my general health. He recommended an exam and arranged for me to have it on the same day of my visit to put me at ease. He received the results within hours, and contacted me during the evening to let me know that everything was fine. I did not expect to hear from a doctor during his time off. I am so pleased to be in such good hands. If you are looking for a neurologist, go no further.

I was lucky to have found Dr. Sethi. My former neurologist had done an MRI of my brain, which showed cerebral atrophy, which for someone my age is somewhat unusual. When he called me with the results, he said "it's fine". Didn't say a word about the atrophy. {I only found Autumn about it when I read the report.} This was when I knew I had to switch neurologists. I did some research, and found Dr. Sethi. who actually responded to my online inquiry dealing with a TBI I had years earlier. He has been my doctor ever since (and couldn't believe that my former doctor hadn't said anything about the atrophy. He is kind, compassionate and extremely knowledgeable. He also responds to messages promptly. Highly recommended

Becoming a patient of Dr. Sethi's in December 2011 was the best thing that could have happened for my health and spirits. His proper and detailed testing, diagnosis and medication prescribing has made my life safe and enjoyable. He is the nicest doctor, the best - and my favorite. He always has time for you. I would recommend him to anyone with a neurological issue - or any other questions.

I found Dr Sethi to be incredibly professional and competent. During my first visit, he was very approachable, took time to thoroughly understand my medical history and background, asked questions as appropriate, and explained his planned approach very methodically. He took steps to obtain data for baseline readings, and outlined a systematic course of action. I was very impressed and have no hesitation in recommending him. In addition to being an outstanding professional, he was empathetic, warm and supportive. I am happy I selected Dr Sethi as my neurologist.
