18/08/12 5 4 5 5 Dr. Sethi gave a generous amount of time listening to my concerns and symptoms before my physical exam. He did not repeat tests that had been recently completed by another Dr. He gave me a clear course of action to manage my female bladder problem and also explained very helpful non-medicated exercises and psychological methods. My experience with Dr. Sethi was above my expectations and I highly recommend him and his efficient staff.

27/10/11 5 5 5 5 I was referred to Dr. Perminder Sethi, at Pacific Urology, by my family doctor to investigate a diagnosis related to urology. Dr. Sethi conducted relevant diagnosis with due diligence and patiently answered all questions. He recently completed a successful exploratory laparotomy operation. Dr. Sethi was very considerate, responsive, and kept me well-informed before and after the operation. The Pacific Urology office staff were efficient and knowedgeable. I have no hesitation in recommending Dr. Sethi and Pacific Urology for relevant diagnosis and procedures. Anita Gupta October 27, 2011

19/04/11 5 5 5 5 Dr. Sethi helped me through testicular cancer. He did the surgery and follow up treatment. He has also helped me with several kidney stones. I felt like my care mattered to him and his staff. Sometimes the office was busy, but I never felt like he rushed his treatment. Very professional, yet easy to talk to. Dr. Sethi explained my diagnosis and treatment at a level I could understand. Highly Recommended.

14/04/11 5 4 5 5 I had a very good experience with Dr. Sethi. I ended up in the emergency room where I was diagnosed with a kidney stone too large to pass. The doctor inserted a stint into the kidney to push back the stone and relieve the pressure on my kidney, then arranged a CWLS procedure a few days later. He went to bat for me with an initially uncooperative insurance company. Dr. Sethi was very professional and compassionate in providing medical treatment, and extremely responsive to my concerns and questions. I visited the doctor in both his Livermore and San Ramon offices, and found his technicians and staff to be very efficient, helpful, and cordial. I strongly recommend Dr. Sethi as a urologist…good guy.

28/12/10 4 4 5 5 A very good experience with Dr. Sethi. My problem was kidney stones. He went about treatment methodically using a stent to begin with to help drain the kidney which was blocked. Then later applied lippotripsy to break up the stones.

24/03/10 4 5 5 5 I had urinary problems and was not having good luck with my existing Dr. I was referred to Dr Sethi by one of my friends in Dec. of 2008. Initially I was reluctant since it was 50 miles away from my work which would be inconvenient. However, I decided to see Dr Sethi and I was very impressed with one appointment with him. He suggested me to do prostate biopsy but I was nervous as it might hurt and might be painful. However contrary to my belief, it was totally painless. He diagnosed my problem and found prostate cancer. Dr Sethi advised me with treatment plan. I have been under his care since then and I am feeling good and happy. I am glad I made decision to see him. He was available to answer my questions 24X7 on phone after treatment. I will recommend him to my nears and dears for any urology problem. His office staff is very courteous and helpful.

18/03/10 5 5 5 5 Wonderful physician-we followed him from his previous employer in Modesto, CA and now commute to San Ramon, CA to continue treatments for bladder cancer and have routine check-ups. We absolutely adore Dr. Sethi, and would recommend him to any individual. Very thorough, innovative, and discussed all of our treatment options when my husband was diagnosed with bladder cancer.

07/03/10 5 4 4 5 I recommend Dr. Sethi. Well educated, takes pride in his work. Has done me good with lithotropsy & tumor ablation. Thinks about me every day when deciding what to do about my complicated case. Confers with other experts in kidney care, uses up to date procedures. I advise writing down what he tells you unless your memory is still excellent. Assistants are good & kind. Surgery coordinator knows her stuff & does well. Office once had serious phone trouble for a couple of days, with no message to console patients.
