Reviewed on September 17, 2018 7:00 PM

Dismissed my questions and failed to answer several of them. He seemed to actually be annoyed that I was asking questions to gain a better understanding of my cancer and it's current metatastatic state. He actually admitted his own knowledge of a key test was too limited.

Dr Sekhon is extremely intelligent and very thoughtful. He definitely listened to my thoughts and was genuinely concerned about my welfare.

Reviewed on July 25, 2018 7:00 PM

I was most impressed with Dr. Sekhone. I cannot remember ever rating a physician at a level of "perfect" with a maximum score, but I did so easily for him. I waited for him in the exam room only 5 minutes, he was professional, forthcoming with information about the reason I was referred to him, clearly explained why he was ordering some tests, provided me with options for the process for one of the tests, and answered all of my questions. I was especially appreciative of the fact that when I told him that I'm an academic (professor), and that I know the difference between acquiring information from peer-reviewed journals and Googling, he seemed to respect my desire to communicate and interact on a level that some might consider above the layperson who might not have the ability to access and/or understand (albeit at a minimal level) scholarly sources for their health conditions.

Reviewed on July 24, 2018 7:00 PM

Reviewed on March 2, 2018 6:00 PM

While this was a routine post-treatment checkup after surgery for cancer in 2012, the initial blood test results signaled something might be amiss. I am grateful Dr. Sekhon and I reached a consensus that all is well through repeating the blood test twice until the results were normal. That was certainly preferable to leaping to scans being performed following the first abnormal test. I am also thankful for XX's role in the process through emails and a phone call.

First I would say that I don't "call" the office. I use MyChart - perhaps there should be questions on the survey about that. I send many messages to the doctors thru it & receive my test results promptly. I love "MyChart" & it is great that my drs. do also. Dr. Sekhon knows his "stuff" very well. He is not a warm & fuzzy kind of doctor but he has kept my 3rd bout w/cancer at bay. I have gone to him for MANY years! As for this visit I felt that he was up to date on my leukemia & was not afraid to order tests that needed to be done as I applaud that. I will continue going to him. I am paying more for my insurance so I can continue to use Dreyer doctors. It is that important to me. Thank you.

A patient should be respected on his opinions, especially when it involves taking a medicine that is not necessary or at least determine how much is really needed, but of course when it involved losing money it will not be an option for the provider, because my new provider has a totally & optimistic new vision on my health.
