Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr. Sethi and team performed a complex spine surgery to treat adult progressive scoliosis in Feb 2018. Dr. Sethi did a great job straightening my spine and typically, his team is responsive. Dr. Sethi's bedside manner could use improvement, however, his surgical skills make up for his lack of warmth. However, I do not recommend Virginia Mason Hospital. I ended up with a life threatening infection from poor nursing care. The special unit for Dr. Sethi's post op patients dropped the ball.

Dr. Sethi has performed 2 separate surgeries on me. Both difficult involving previous fusions. The first was performed in 2017 when my leg was painful It required removal of hardware and fusing additional bone to the site. Perfection and no pain. The most recent involved several vertebrae in my neck again removing old hardware and opening the nerve path to relieve pain in my arm. Again perfection and no pain. He is easy to talk to and his support staff are just as excellent as he is.
