Dr. Seem has been my doctor for the past year. I've always been thin, athletic and exercise at a high level. However, prior to seeing Dr. Seem I've had an elevated Total Cholesterol. Which frustrated me because I exercise daily andwas the "healthy eater" among my friends and family. I was told we have "bad genes" and that one day I would be on a statin like all my immediate family. So, last year my Total Cholesterol was 232 which medically is considered "Borderline High". Upon Dr. Seem's coaching I decided to take his dietary advice (which has been mentioned often in other reviews). Fast forward one year and my Total Cholesterol has dropped 50 points! I'm posting this message for anyone who is skeptic of a plant based diet. Good luck to all who reads this...

I have been looking for a plant based doctor that was near me and I finally found one. As a vegan it is great to have a doctor that understands my diet. I think it is great that Seem recommends plantbased diets to all his patients. It's the best thing for you, the planet and, the animals!

In the past, when I went to see a doctor, I was constantly struck with a feeling of inadequacy by the doctor. There was an anxiety that they weren't going to get it right. However, this is completely different with Dr.Seem. He is the absolute best family doctor that I've ever had, and I am looking forward to very long patient-doctor relationship. Please go see this gentleman, he's fantastic.

We are new to the DMV area. I found Dr. Kalra, who is my primary care physician, because I wasn't happy with my attending physician at that time. Dr. Kalra is Dr. Seem's wife. I needed to see her soon, buther earliest appointment was a little farther out than I wanted to wait. Dr. Seem was available at a time that perfectly fit my schedule. He was excellent, as they both always are, in discussing my issues and concerns. They spend time talking to you, discussing your questions, concerns and treatments. They never rush from patient to patient. They make suggestions and give you treatment options if there's more than one. They also explain any side effects or research on different medicines and procedures. They don't suggest or refer patients for unnecessary testing or exams. I loved Dr. Kalra so much on my first visit that I referred my husband to Dr. Seem. I'm glad to have found this great team of doctors and their staff, who is friendly and helpful. Their office is conveniently located in Rockville off of 270 and close to other medical facilities. They refer their patients to other great medical specialists, if one is needed outside the services that they provide.

Dr. Seem was very critical of my choice to eat meat and dairy products and implied it was the source to all my medical problems. His diagnosis was too go vegan. I felt his personal views guided his professional guidance andhe became hostile when I told him it was not realistic for me to become a 100% vegan, but I had committed to an extremely healthy diet prior to our visit. Only lean meat, no fast food, no bacon, nothing fried, I.e

I was very impressed and glad as a first-time walk-in patient. He spend enough time to know the patientshistory and habits. His staffs are courteous, knowledgeable and know what they are doing. I strongly recommend anyone to choose him as a family physician.

Dr Seem is the most knowledgeable, thorough and personable physician that you will ever have the pleasure of meeting. It is rare that a Dr takes the amount of time (1/2 hour with me on average) to completely and thoroughly explaineverything as if you were in medical class. A year ago after reading reviews, I came to Dr Seem for a general physical. The information that he gave me has been absolutely life changing!! I am a very physical and active person at 56 years young being 6’4 and always around 298 lbs since college (Div 1 sport scholarships). By listening to the information that he so carefully shares with me, and in only 8 months, I am now 250lbs wearing 36” waist jeans and shopping for 34’s!!!! I still bench 315lbs and have more energy than college days! And I owe all the success to Dr Seem. He gives me his decades of medical knowledge and guides me towards a healthier and longer life. A true godsend. I only wish I had met him decades ago!

Dr. Seem adds what this society has been missing for a very long time: Excellent bedside manners with a genuine care and concern for the overall longevity of the body, mind, and spirit. Thank you for staying true to who youare and not letting the corruption of modern day western culture and antics (capitalism and greed) deter you from what is important: you and your love for your neighbor as yourself. Your love for the perpetuation of this world will be known to all, one patient at a time. I recommend everyone to your office. See you at the top!

Dr. Seem is rude, condescending and unhelpful. He uses his position to insult and demean his patients. I highly recommend looking at alternatives. I guarantee if you call his office that he has availability today to see you because his wife carries the practice.
