I did not have a good experience with Seema Kanwal. After having agreed to pay for very expensive tests of questionable value, at each visit I was plied with costly supplements which she wanted to change before I had completed the previous batch. On more than one occasion, at the beginning of our appointment, she said "Today, I will do acupuncture!" After half an hour, she would wrap up the session. When I enquired about acupuncture, she said "not today." I left the appointment realizing that I had just spent $105 to discuss the virtues of broccoli. Seema is a lovely person, but this type of therapy is not for me.
I have rare genetic disorder and was referred to Dr Kanwal by a friend with cancer. He raved about the amazing care and compassion she provided him. When I got my diagnosis my friend insisted I go see her. He was correct she helped me in so many ways. Even if she didn't know all the answers at first she did her research and found solutions. She helped me not just physically but get back to feeling like me again, she also helped me realize that my disease was not a death sentence. At first I thought I would be more comfortable with a male doctor but I gave her a try and am extremely impressed.
Dr Kanwal was a godsend who saw me (successfully!!!) through my battle with cervical cancer with lymph node involvement (chemo, radiation) between 2010 and 2013. She is so caring and funny, she is a delight to see. She is a research guru who stays incredibly informed of research based approaches. She is excellent at putting in IVs as I probably had more than 50 vitamin C or Meyer's IVs with her. Her acupuncture is extremely effective AND calming! She carries quality supplements for market prices. For colds, her recommendation has saved me numerous times! Her office is conveniently located, CLEAN, bright and cheerful. She has seen my husband and three kids. I cannot thank Seema enough for the level of care I received through an incredibly awful time. I still see her for maintenance IVs and family care. Book now, she is the real deal.
Seema Kanwal is a remarkable Doctor. I consider her my primary physician and a person in my life who truly cares about my wellbeing. I have been visiting her office for four years, she has never once been late and her office staff are amazing. She has helped me to understand how to improve and maintain good health and I know I am a healthier person because of her. I really can't say enough. We need more doctors like Dr. Kanwal.
Dr Kanwal has been my primary care for more than 3 years, and she is hands down the best doctor my family has ever had, naturopathic or allopathic. She takes pleasure in getting right to the root of a problem or complex set of problems, in a very easy to understand evidence based way, while also being incredibly interpersonally/emotionally supportive. Dr Kanwal seems to really stay on top of her field in terms of professional development and updating her knowledge. She has great intuition as well, and has saved me from a potentially life threatening problem with a sharp early 'hunch' and diagnosis. She is very caring, and great with children, to whom she gives respect and speaks to as equals. And I must say that I personally appreciate that she is direct and straight-talking. Her current clinic is very modern and clean, and the staff are professional and helpful. She runs her appointments precisely on time, but they never seem rushed.
I have been going to Dr. Kanwal for about 2 years. She has helped me both emotionally and physically. Recently, I had a problem that 2 MD"S couldn't solve. I went to Dr. kanwal, and she knew right away what is was and how to treat it. Thank you Dr. Kanwal for your knowledge and caring.
Dr. Kanwal is a great practitioner, focused on every detail and intent on finding the root of the problem. She believes in power of positive thinking as well as taking charge of your own health. The supplements she dispenses are of the highest quality. She provided me with an allergy medication that worked like a miracle where weeks of Bendaryl did not resolve the allergy. During my acupuncture sessions, Seema was able to pinpoint and release exactly the places where the pain was located. I would highly recommend Seema to anyone who is looking for more comprehensive look at their health.
Dr Seema Kanwal is not just a practitioner she is a caring person who does not give up on find the issue. She follows up to make sure I am okay after a treatment. I consider her more of a friend although we don't socialize outside of her practice. She is very intelligent and has a wide range of knowledge. I have complete confidence in her care. She does not give me anything without knowing my history, unlike some traditional doctors. I have never felt better and have made great progress within a year compared to seeing traditional doctors for years.
