This was my first time seeing the doctor and I couldn't have liked him more. The receptionist was very friendly and made several calls on my behalf regarding mnedication that could be covered by my insurance. Dr. Seecoomer was very easyto talk to, had a very direct diagnoses and immediate plan for action.

I was terrified to have a colonoscopy after the anesthesia administered during a prior colonoscopy with another doctor left me ill. Dr. Seecoomar discussed the issue with me at length, and even returned two phone calls between the first appointmentand the actual procedure to discuss the matter further. He didn't turn me over to an office manager/assistant. Instead, he took the time to personally address and respond to my concerns. The result was a problem-free colonoscopy. I couldn't recommend him more highly.

Dr, Seecoomar truly cares about his patients often inquiring about how are you we doing in other areas of life. I've had various procedures over the past 5 years. An endoscopy and a colonoscopy. Both times I left the office wonderingdid he actually perform the tests because I had absolutely no discomfort whatsoever afterward. Dr. Seecoomar is professional and courteous. A true find!

I was really impressed with Dr Seecoomar. He seemed knowledgable and had a pleasant bedside manner. He took time to explain my symptoms and his treatment recommendations in a way that most doctors, in my experience at least, do not. Asa result I felt I could make informed decisions about my treatment plan. I highly recommend Dr Seecoomar to any looking for a Gastroenterologist in the area.

I had a great experience with Dr. Seecoomar. After seeing a bunch of other gastroenterologists, he was the only that took initiative in solving the issues. A lot of other doctors dragged on the process across many visits before they started to look into tests.

The worst. Is clearly only interested in keeping you coming back so he can collect on insurance. Put me through a series of tests- ok, fine, sure, gotta find out the problem. Then proceeded to not even discuss the results withme and tell me my stomach problems were my issue- "diet related". Then refused to recommend me to a nutritionist or dietician to help- just wanted me to keep coming back to him every few weeks and only could give me the most general advice to help change my diet (ie, "just eat more fiber, and less sugar). Complete and total waste of time and money.

I have seen Dr. Seecoomar twice already regarding certain health issues and he is attentive, understanding, and answers all your questions. Couldn't have found a better gastroenterologist and I would highly recommend to anyone since he hasan expanded knowledge base, strategies for determining underlying conditions/illnesses and establishes a good rapport with patients. Wait time is very short and receptionists are extremely nice and friendly as well.
