He is an awesome Doctor. Would definitely recommend to my own patients.

July 31, 2017

Only saw the doctor. He is excellent, attentive, friendly, thorough.

Dr. Sekula is a problem solver and does not assume outcomes. I was impressed with his approach to my problem and his looking at angles others would not consider. I have confidence in his diagnosis.

July 31, 2017

Jamie Clarke & Dr. Raymond Sekula saved my life! I spoke to them for the first time on a Thursday, had me scheduled for a consultation on that Monday and switched other patients around(with there permission) to complete immediate surgery on Tuesday. Although the condition I have can possibly come back, the pain was immediately relieved after surgery and I don't know how I could have handled the pain for any longer. Thank you so much Jamie & Dr. Sekula and the rest of the team that helped me! P.S. You may want to consider having Jamie Clark run the operations of the whole hospital...if you're looking for a competitive advantage.

I am so thankful I was referred to Dr. Sekula. He made me feel at ease and I was confident in his ability to perform some risky surgery near my spine. He did an outstanding job and the surgery was a complete success.

July 10, 2017

I waited over 3 hours to see this doctor. My films we're not uploaded by my referring physician's office, therefore, Dr. Sekula spent less than 10 minutes with me. He guessed a diagnosis and referred me out to someone else.

July 10, 2017

Dr. Sekula was extraordinarily confident, knowledgeable and amazingly thorough. I would entrust him with my life during a brain surgery- as many others would do. He is at the top of his field and it truly shows. He diagnosed me with a rare condition within minutes of meeting him. Truly thankful and impressed.

July 10, 2017

Dr. Sekula and his staff are very professional; it's obvious they strive for excellence and they achieve it!

July 10, 2017

I scheduled this appointment for the sole purpose of being able to spend time asking my surgeon questions that I have had since my surgery. After a ridiculous two and a half hour wait, I was finally able to see my surgeon for an entire 3 minutes before he left the room. No questions, no answers. While the operation was a wonderful success that I am very thankful for, this clinic experience was beyond awful.

very good neurosurgeon until my last visit wasn't concern about my episodes I'm having just told me to see my pcp my pcp wasn't happy because this is one thing my neurosurgeon could've handled and found out the problem but didn't even order no test . normally he is a really great Dr but my last visit he wasn't concerned one bit. I called about my episodes 3 months prior to my visit never got a returned call back at all. very unsatisfied and I have sent a lot of people with chiari to him he was great with my chiari but last couple visits was awful.
