Dr. Sekhar and his team are Great, across the board in every aspect of patient care. He listens and understands what patients are telling him in order to properly diagnose and treat the patient.

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.

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.
