Dr. Sekhar is highly compassionate! He is also very precise when he recommends a procedure to relieve my many areas of pain I suffer from. I would recommend Dr. Sekhar to my mother. You will immediately feel the confidence in him to help you achieve a better quality of life. Practicing out of Greenwich Hospital, he is a shining star.

Best pain management doctor in Northern Westcheste – Feb 06, 2020

Dr Raj has no respect for other professionals who have appts and schedules And readjust their clients and day In order to come in for a 5/10 min procedure. I have waited no less than 1 hr and up to nearly two for his procedures which “‘took longer”. He does not live up to the Hippocratic oath he took; Practice two things in your dealings with disease: either help or do not harm the patient". He did not help. And he hurt. His huge ego needs an adjustment. I would seek other care.
