No....no, no.....terrible! Two surgeries and when I asked for a pain refill he went off on me! I am 65. I do not drink or smoke or use any drugs. I was in pain! His male nurse was so so rude....don't don't do it.

If I could not give any stars I would. Dr. Szeto did his version of treating my abcess. He had horrible bed side manner. He was ride and lacked compassion. He didn't take my level of pain seriously. I had NO POST OP treatment. After he did the surgery I was on my own. I had ONE follow up visit and had to request the other visits on my own where he showed no regard for my healing process. Needless to say my wound never healed properly. I was left with a hole that has a thick layer of scar tissue that is extremely painful to live with. Not to mention my abcess returning and I knew not to return to him. If you are suffering from an abcess or fistula good luck choosing him for your care.

Amazing doctor that is exceptionally competent and thorough in his practice. His understanding and communication is very professional and appreciative. My procedure results were fantastic and I highly recommend Dr. Szeto. I am not sure about him being a Kentucky fan, but...Go Hogs!

Dr Szeto is caring and takes time to listen to your concerns and explains what to expect during any procedure. You don’t feel rushed during the visit and your apptn wait time is less than 5 minutes in my two appointments. I would highly recommend him to others.

He talks too much and doesn’t listen. He went as far as to tell me to just listen to him and stop talking. He is rude and arrogant as well. Never had any procedures by him thankfully.

Discretion is not a concern with this doctor as he talks loud during consults in rooms with thin walls. His office staff are not able to process patients in a timely manner. Arrived and checked in 30 minutes ahead of my appointment time and per their policy brought to their attention that I had not been seen 30 minutes after my appointment time. Still was not seen so I left. 1 week later insurance billed for procedure and medications not administered or prescribed.
