    How was your appointment with Dr. Sekhar?

    Apr 18, 2018
    I went to follow up with Dr. Sekhar for the first time after my surgery. He didn’t even give me 5 minutes in the room, didn’t let me voice my concerns and rushed right out the door. I drove 40 minutes away just for him to not even give me the time of day really disappointing. I just feel like a number and I may not even follow up with him again.
