Verified Patient Reviews
A most capable physician who nonetheless puts one at ease with sincere compassion and a very good sense of humor.
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 appointment and 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, was a great doctor for a first visit. I'll be seeing him again for sure!
Having been a patient a while back, I was looking forward to catching up and getting myself taken care of. I trust Dr. Seecoomar and I'm happy that he still practices.
Always personable, professional, and focused on the best patient solution.

It was great. The doctor is very professional and very helpful.
Good listener; probes when you discuss your medical/health history; provides a plan to address symptoms and follow-up care
Personable, concerned about the whole patient, takes time and does not rush.

Dr. Seecoomar is honest, sincere, knowledgeable and gets right to the point. He's very patient with my elderly mother and truly listens to her concerns. Kudos to his staff too!
Very professional and knows his subject on gastroenterology very well
Extremely helpful doctor. Took the time to explain my diagnosis and gave me tips on how to help my issue.
He was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Very direct and honest about next steps which I really appreciated. Going in to this appointment I didn't know what to expect and came out having a great experience and feeling like I was putting my health in the right hands.
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 wondering did 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. As a 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.
Professional, thorough, great bedside manner, good follow-up. Would highly recommend.
Dr. Seecoomar is very knowledgable and professional! I appreciate his honesty and attention to detail.
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 with me 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.
Really appreciated my entire experience with Dr. Seecoomar.
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 has an 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.
Professional and knowledgeable. Took time to listen and explain things. Looking forward to continued visits.
Dr. Seecoomar has been my doctor for many years! He is an amazing doctor and truly cares about his patients.

Great doctor! Very attentive and didn't feel rushed. Listened and asked about all my symptoms.
He was very professional and knowledgable, attentively listened to all of my problems and conserns. He proposed reasonable tests and follow ups.
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.
A true professional. Thorough and perceptive questions. Clear plan of action. Appreciate patience and depth of knowledge.
Very professional and knowledgeable physician
Knowledgeable, pleasant and thorough.
His manner inspires confidence. Very inquisitive and takes the time to explain his thought process out loud vs many other doctors who just give you their conclusion with limited information. Clearly concerned about patient care. Also has a great staff and minimal time-wasting forms at registration. Top notch experience.
The doctor was very helpful and insightful. He listened carefully to my problem, asked thoughtful questions, and made great observations. I would highly recommend this doctor to friends or family.
First off, his staff is so friendly it's refreshing. Dr. Seecoomar is a way cool guy - very professional, but friendly and comfortable as well. I was a little nervous to go to a GI at first, but I definitely know who to go to in the future! The wait time was next to nothing as well.
