My valves were damaged and my doctor told me that only surgery would help. She recommended that I meet Dr. Seth. I understood that Dr. Seth is the best person for this from the first consultation only. He is very affable. He was also understanding of my financial condition and consoled me. I liked his complete nature. I recommend the doctor.
