I was treated for PMR by Dr Segar for more than a year and was completely satisfied by his attention and results. My condition is back to normal. I would recommend him to a friend based on my experience. He and the staff were courteous, helpful and accommodating.
I have been seeing him for several years for my rheumatoid arthritis. He has been amazing in getting me on the proper medications while carefully watching my blood tests. Everyone in his office is totally professional, informative and very nice.

Not unusual to wait forty to sixty minutes for your scheduled appt. even if it is early in the day. Poor attention to hand washing between patients. Need to check what he writes in your patient record because it is not always accurate (medical history, allergies etc.) Have had to ask the RN to correct the notes after 2 requests to him with no result. Suggest looking elsewhere if possible.

Several years ago I went there when I had itchy and scaling scalp psoriasis. While examination, Dr. Kanagasegar never asked me to show my scalp. While sitting on the examination stool that he instructed me to sit on, I showed the spots on my scalp by parting my hair. After the examination was over, as I sat there he then suddenly without a word pulled my ponytail downward. I had a sudden jolting stress in my neck. He was violent! After complaining to the manager I never went back there.
