Excellent doctor. Excellent surgeon. I had a cervical fusion; C-4-5-6. My recovery was uneventful. Three months later, my range of motion is restored and my pain is gone.

Cancer is hard enough, get a doctor who cares

Imagine you've just learned that your cancer has returned and you need guidance. You're scared and you start to cry and you ask the Dr. what is going to happen to you, and he coldly smirks "Everybody dies eventually." Welcome to the "bedside manner" of Dr. Sethi. What a demoralizing horrible experience. I don't expect my doctor to be my best friend, but in my time of crisis, I do expect my doctor to "do no harm." Save yourself the pain. Go elsewhere.
