At age 76, I had the REZUM procedure done on Friday, Jan 25, 2019 and everything was over in about 30 minutes, including attaching a small Catheter bag to my right thigh. I didn't need to take any pain meds after the procedure was done, except for a pill, that made my urine turn blue for the 1st day but it made my false urges to go pee, go away. By the following Monday, I took a shower and easily removed the Catheter. As everything worked out so well, I didn't need to go back to see the doctor, I just checked in on the phone to let the doctor's nurse know that everything was working good and I was getting more flow of urine everyday, which continued for about a month or so. I feel like a young man, in my 20's again, as I have more flow and I feel like I can write my name in the snow! My significant-other, thought that the REZUM procedure even improved my sexual performance. I would not hesitate to recommend this procedure (and my doctor) to anyone needing this type of BPH treatment.

I had the REZUM procedure in June 2019 by Dr. Sethi. I wish this procedure had been available to me 10 years ago. I no longer need to take BPH medication and my high PSA due to prostate cancer, confirmed by biopsy, has returned to normal. I most highly recommend Dr. Sethi for the REZUM procedure. My daily life has improved and I no longer need to worry about BPH symptoms. Thank you Dr. Sethi.

My visit with Dr. Sethi was very informative & reaffirming. The rezum procedure was quick & not very discomforting. The outcome was everything that I hoped for. I was able to go back to normality in about 7 weeks & discontinue the meds entirely. I highly recommend rezum & Dr. Parminder Sethi 10+.Thank you so much!

I was referred to Dr. Sethi after visiting John Muir Health Urgent Care for a kidney stone. When trying to make an appointment for a consultation with Dr. Sethi, I was told that the earliest appointment available would be in three weeks. Next day, I received a call from his San Ramon Office and a miracle happened. I was able to see Dr. Sethi in two days. When I met Dr. Sethi first time in his office, I could trust him immediately. He is very experienced and professional, and provided me with details of my condition and treatment plans both in the office and online. I actually communicated with Dr. Sethi over e-mail and received his response even over weekend. While it took me two months to pass a kidney stone naturally, Dr. Sethi was very patient with me, listening to my concerns and accommodating my work and travel schedule. Thank you very much Dr. Sethi for your excellent service. I strongly recommend Dr. Sethi to my family and friends.

Had the Rezum prostate procedure and was impressed by the doctor's knowledge on this new procedure. He explained the procedure thoroughly and other options available. He has always provided answers and explanations concerning my prostate problems (4 visits). The procedure went smoothly and was painless.

Dr. Sethi treated me for Peyronies with much success, the injections of Xiaflex were slightly uncomfortable for a second at most ( much less than a toothache!) and the results were definitely worth it!

I have a long history of BPH and after several previous urologists just didn't follow through, Dr Sethi addressed the problem directly and restored my quality of life with a Prostiva procedure. He readily agreed to perform the procedure under GA when I was unable to tolerate the procedure as an outpatient. Only problem is that the back office in Walnut Creek is shambolic. Phone calls are not returned, hold times are excessive, and prescription reauthorization management is inep

My father sees Dr Sethi. Has far as a doctor I think he is good. The only major down fall is trying to get a prescription renewed. I have called at least 4 times and the insurance company has faxed them 4 times. This has taken weeks and I find this unacceptable. This is not the first time this has happened. Also one time the doctor prescribed a new medication and it was never called in for a month. We finally had to get samples from the primary doctor.
