Dr. Sekuleo Gathers has the following 2 specialties
- Emergency Medicine
An emergency physician is a doctor who is an expert in handling conditions of an urgent and extremely dangerous nature. These specialists work in the emergency room (ER) departments of hospitals where they oversee cases involving cardiac distress, trauma, fractures, lacerations and other acute conditions.
Emergency physicians are specially trained to make urgent life-saving decisions to treat patients during an emergency medical crisis. These doctors diagnose and stabilize patients before they are either well enough to be discharged, or transferred to the appropriate department for long-term care.
- Family Medicine
A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

I was searching for somewhere to leave a good rating for Dr. Gathers and was shocked to read a negative commentary on this site. I had a wonderful experience with him and am so grateful for his quick care. It saved my vacation! I was in NY for a quick 2-night layover on my way to London and came down with horrible food poisoning. The reaction was so violent that I actually broke blood vessels all over my face. I didnt want to go to the hospital because it takes so long and I was afraid I would sit there feeling this way for hours. I was alone in the hotel, in a city I didnt know well, so I when I called the concierge they called Dr. Gathers. I didnt even know such a thing existed! Doctors making housecalls? Anyway, within 30 minutes, I was receiving a shot to help relieve the nausea and by the next morning, I was weak but feeling well enough to board the plane and continue with my vacation. Sure, it wasnt cheap, but it was MUCH less expensive than the emergency room would have been and Im one of those people who is happy to pay for quick head of the line service when Im feeling so horrible Dr. Gathers was very sweet and thorough, and even called me 2 days later to follow up on how I was feeling. Thats more than my own doctor does, truth be told. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for urgent, effective care.
I had a stye and needed it removed as I was taking a cruise in two days time. I went to Mt. Sinai Hospital but could not receive an appointment due to the late notice.I returned to my hotel and was told I may have a doctor come to the hotel.Dr. Sekuleo Gathers arrived quickly, and very professionally removed the stye. In a very short time, I was free of pain with no infection.It is indeed a wonderful find to have such prompt and professional Doctor when seekingtreatment for illnesses while travelling.Thank you very much.
my experience with this doctor at the hotel I stayed at was horrible! He was in my room for 5 minutes and charged over 900$. Beware when using this doctor. He will do more harm then good.
