Patient Comments (15)
in Concord, CA |
Dr. Sekhon double-charges for office visits, and expects the patient to pay more than the co-pay required by insurance. For the first visit, he charged $300 for a 45 minute session, plus $400 for a 60 minute office visit. The visit was probably about 45 minutes. It was not 1 hour and 45 minutes long. Follow up visits are charged at $300 for a 25-minute follow up office visit, plus another $300 under a diagnosis code for the same 25 minutes. I would not recommend this doctor.

I was very comfortable seeing Dr. Sekhon. He is very intelligent and compassionate.
Pittsburg, CA |
He is a great doctor - but when it came to filling out my paperwork for disability - he was hesitant / refused ....If he himself is paranoid - how will he treat others whose life is at stake..... The least he could do is explain why he was hesitant or ask me questions to let me know whats wrong with filling the paperwork... this is just ridiculous - if he did not feel I was sick - why did he prescribe the medicine and why does he now refuse to fill the paperwork ????? This is really frustrating
in Pleasant Hill, CA |
Easy going and has a calming effect which has been good for me. Right next to the John Muir office where my main doctor is.
in Pleasant Hill, CA |
My experience with Dr. Sekhon has been really good so far. From our very first appointment, he LISTENED. I am an adult ADD patient, diagnosed as an adult, and have had a couple of experiences with Dr's who do not understand (or care to) how it can present in adult patients, and consequently lack in their overall treatment plan. Dr. Sekon has a way offering his professional advice without being condescending. He is calm, kind and supportive. J at the front desk is also very sweet.

Nice person. Explains things and worked with me. He told me stuff I could do instead of just taking more pills. Overall, I had a good experience. The office is very nice. Right next to the BART on Treat.
Oakland, CA |
Came here after seeing another psychiatrist. Very happy I changed. New office and they look like they are just getting off the ground but everyone is very nice.
in Benicia, CA |
Great doctor! Dr. Sekhon has helped my depression and anxiety so much over the past few months I have been seeing him. I feel like I finally have my life back.
in Concord, CA |
A very nice therapist who takes time to listen.
Dr. Sekhon is a great doctor! I always feel comfortable seeing him. He never feels rushed, is very knowledgeable and kind. I was recommended to see him by a friend and I was certainly glad to have received the referral!
in Concord, CA |
I had a great experience with Dr. Sekhon. For starters, he was always on time. With my last doctor, I had to wait 30-60 minutes in the waiting room to be seen, so it was a nice change to get seen at my actual appointment time. He has a very calming voice, and he took his time to explain things and answer my questions. He was very knowledgeable about medications and he came up with a treatment plan that finally made me feel like myself again!
in Fairfield, CA |
Not a pill pusher. I have been seeing Dr. Sekhon for a few months in Fairfield and will be following him to Walnut Creek because he was able to help where so many other doctors did not. I was on a bunch of pills and he got me down to 2 which seems like a miracle.
Fairfield, CA |
Not really a people-person. Didn't feel like I was making any progress on my condition with this provider.
in Suisun City, CA |
Arrogant & disinterested. Always tries to get me out ASAP. When a shocking tragedy occurred it took me several sessions to build the courage to tell him. And all I got was his standard, So aside from that, how are you feeling? I never told him how suicidal I was because he didn't want to hear about my problems. You will walk away feeling you've annoyed him. His emergency 800 number doesn't always work. He doesn't care. He is in it for the money. Find someone else. He should lose his license.
in Martinez, CA |
HE SPENT HALF OF MY OFFICE VISIT LOOKING AT HIS CELL PHONE AND CAME ACROSS AS ARROGANT. I LEFT THE OFFICE WONDERING IF HE FELT SUPERIOR TO WOMEN OR IF HE JUST DISLIKED WOMEN QUESTIONING HIM? WHEN CONFRONTED HE WAS LESS THAN TRUTHFUL.
