Dr Sekula is always extremely helpful and compassionate.

Always receive top quality care

I have every confidence in Dr. Sekula. He has been able to resolve all the health issues I went to him about. He is kind, knowledgeable and compassionate.

I arrived 30 minutes prior to my appointment. My name got called back 30 minutes after my appointment time. I was told an intern would be in and than I would see the doctor. 40 minutes passed and the doctor came in with a younger lady who he did not introduce. The only question he asked me was if this was an accidental find. I explained all my symptoms and how I felt. He told big the tumor was, and how HE was not concerned. I procided to ask him questions to what he answered with "I don't know, I could not tell you". He told me to come back in 2 years. He walked out. He was in the room with me, maybe 3 minutes if that. He acted like my concerns and opinions did not matter.

this was my first visit to provider for a consultation re possible surgery. The visit was handled in a very professional and friendly manner by all involved.

I think Dr. Sekula and his staff are top notch. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing a neurosurgeon.

Dr Sekula, and Komal are amazing. I traveled from Colorado to Pittsburgh just to see doctor Sakura and Co Mall they have a very complicated problem taken care of and they made it so easy.

November 11, 2019

I flew in from out of town specifically to see Dr. Sekula due to an suspected Chiari Malformation. I called to request an appointment with anyone from Chiari Team since your website says that UPMC has a Chiari Center. I just so happened to be scheduled with Dr. Sekula. Since my Chiari is very minimal 3mm it is not something he would operate on, which is understandable and I would agree completely. I flew to Pittsburgh for insight and guidance with the issues including memory loss I have been having and I stead was offered an injection for Occipital Neuralgia and referred to a pain management clinic closer to a home. I will not be attending this clinic as I was not searching for a medication fix but rather validation and help moving forward. Things to watch out for, signs to be aware of, scans to be explained.
