I found Dr.Sekhon & staff to be very professional,courteous & knowledgeable. Dr. Sekhon provides you with the tools in which to make your decision. He suggested conservative treatment first which did not work for me, then he provided me with all the information to make a good decision for surgery. He went over all information with me during the Pre-op visit to prepare me for surgery. I had a C3e-C4, C4-C5, and C5-C6 anterior cervical decompression with fusion. The day after surgery I was without pain, had strength back in both my arms and legs and was released from the hospital on that day. Recovery has been quicker than anticipated and I have gone back to work after 4 weeks, 2 weeks of part-time and then full time with physical therapy. I would highly recommend Dr. Sekhon to anyone and everyone who would be looking for a skilled surgeon.

Dr. Sekhon quite literally saved my husband's life! We are deeply appreciative of all that he and his staff did for us. He was very helpful with giving us all the information about what was going to happen before, during and after the surgery. We cannot stress enough how marvelous our entire experience has been with this fabulous doctor and his staff. He has our highest recommendations!

Extremely knowledgeable, thorough, professional and kind. Answered all my questions and gave me handouts/information. Let me know what to expect before and after extensive neck surgery. Physician Assistants and staff were equally great (thank you Lisa!) Someone was always there to answer questions and actually returned my calls! A professional and well-organized practice.
