For the first time in many years my neck is pain free. Dr. Sethurman was very decisive and clear on what my surgery would encompass. I was completely informed on what to expect before and after my surgery. His staff was professional and were able to respond to any questions that I had. I have no reservations on recommending Dr.Sutherman to anyone who needs spine surgery.

Rude & arrogant. How is this guy still in business?

After scheduling my initial new patient appointment, I was very comfortable. Office atmosphere and staff very friendly and professional. Once with the doctor, I was very impressed with his knowledge and ability to understand my medical needs. Wish I could give 10 Stars !
in Irving TX |
Very professional, including Dr Sethuramans staff. I chose Dr Sethuraman due to his high quality of care noted on the Healthgrade website, after researching the many other doctors in his field. Once I entered his office, I was treated with individual attention and knew I had chosen the right doctor to help me advance into a better quality of life. ?????

Outstanding group of people. Dr. Sethuraman and his staff are knowledgeable and took the time to answer all of my questions. Cannot recommend them enough.
in Ft Worth, TX |
Not only did he perform a successful l5-s1 spinal fusion after so-called experts in the dfw area wouldn't (I had had four prior 3 prior surgeries before), but he just recently did my cervical fusion and I am virtually pain free! Dr. Seth is the real deal and he is a master of his craft!
