What People Say About Dr. Sekai Chideya, MD
RecentMost Helpful
Dr Chideya was thorough, positive, and explained the situation very well. I would highly recommend her to anyone. I saw her at the John Muir urgent care facility which was a bright and clean facility. It didn't feel yucky like other medical facilities.

I had Dr. Chideya at urgent care in Walnut Creek (at John Muir). She was patient, a good listener, and very thorough in her diagnosis. When calling back with results, she was again patient, non-rushed, and pleasant. I was so impressed I mentioned her to my wife who is looking for a primary physician but apparently she only does urgent care now. Highly recommended.

Sekai is always very professional in a comfortable and compassionate way. She really spends the time to listen and asks thorough questions to get a complete understanding of any potential contributing factors beyond what lies at the surface. I always feel that Sekai treats my well-being as her top priority, both physical and mental.
