Michael L. Subderal Hematoma/Dural Fistula Sept. 2016 and again November 2016

Dr. Avi Setton and his team are beyond words, AMAZING, FABULOUS, STUPENDOUS! Grace is an awesome member of Dr. Setton's team. She is compassionate, kind, helpful and also makes the patient and family feel so much support it helps to relieve the stress and fear they are feeling. Dr. Setton is kind, caring, genuine, brilliant and unbelievably wonderful to his patients and families. I was rushed in as emergency in Sept. 2016, I thought I was having a stroke, it was not. It was a Subderal Hematoma and Dural Fistula. I am so lucky Dr. Setton was the Dr. on call and that he was the one who took care of me along with Dr. Dehashti. Dr. Setton spoke to me calmly and explained what was happening and when it was time for me to go in to the OR he came to see me and comforted me and my girlfriend tremendously. After my procedure he came out and explained everything to my girlfriend and told her all went exactly as we hoped (well)!! Dr. Setton came to see me multiple times a day to make sure I was doing well. Absolutely amazing!

Exceptional Dr. and Staff(Grace). Unfortunately, my father has an inoperable thrombosed artery. I agree with the other posts, compassionate, informative, and his persona exudes confidence and commitment to only superior work. If that time comes I would trust no other with my father.

Amazing expert!

Dr Setton performed brain anyurism surgery on my father almost 2 years ago. Choosing a doctor was a huge lengthy hurdle for my family to overcome but we ultimately trusted Dr. Setton to do the surgery. We are so glad that was the choice we made. Dr. Setton and his staff were amazing. Fortunately my father was a candidate for surgery through his groin (coil method) as opposed to the more evasive clipping method. He is home safe and back to normal. Cannot believe how smooth everything went. Another FYI, when my father was in recovery at NSUH brain surgery unit, all the hospital nurses and staff were on alert as soon as the doctor came into the wing. He was very hands on and expects the best treatment for his patients. Our nurse at the time admitted to us that he is one of those doctors that expect the best and do not settle for nonsense. Highly recommend!

Given the urgency of needing an appointment with Dr. Setton I couldn't have been happier with his accomodating me so quickly. He is complete in his assessments and skill. His staff, i.e. Grace, and his NP Jill are wonderful in communicating necessary information!
