I’ve been a patient of Dr. Seetharam since 2013 and I can’t say enough good things about this man. He listens to all of your concerns and makes you feel heard. He genuinely cares for his patients and goes out of his way to help you. I had a Liver Transplant in 2017 and he made it such a stress free experience. My whole family is so grateful that I have him as my doctor.
I needed an upper endoscopy for my chronic GERD. He made the who process easy. He explained everything in a way I understood. On the day of the procedure I was nervous and he reassured me. It was the easiest thing ever! I knew I was in good hands. Then he helped me find a treatment regimen that improved my symptoms. Any time I need a scope or GI care. I will call him!
Dr. Seetheran was extremely responsive to my medical issues, addressed my concerns in a kind manner, while providing me the care I needed.
Dr. Seetharam was wonderful. He was able to address my concerns with ease and helped me trust that I was in good hands. He was thoughtful, kind and thorough.
Outstanding doctor and excellent communicator. I have chronic issues that have required surgeries and powerful medicines to control; they have gone above and beyond to help me. Everyone is thoughtful and kind. This practice and surgery center is first-class. Wish I could give more stars!
