Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Sethi "I decided in high school I want to be a surgeon, after being inspired by my grandfather, who was an old-time surgeon. I am always available to my patients, by phone, by e-mail and in person. I am a very compassionate listener. Best compliment I heard came from an 80-year-old patient, who suffered from incontinence all her life. Her quality of life improved so much after an InterStim implant that she said, 'Now I can trampoline with my grandkids!'"

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.
