Dr. Szeto has been our doctor for over 17 years, I wouldn't change doctors ever. He takes time to talk to you about your health, he doesn't rush you in and out the door. This sometimes causes a little longer wait time if he has multiple long appointments, but I am will to wait to see a doctor that I don't feel just wants the money and is in a hurry. He makes sure that any medication he prescribes is covered by your insurance, he doesn't prescribe name brand medications if there is a generic that works just as well and he will try to prescribe the one that is the cheapest through your insurance, but only if he thinks it will work.

I have a condition called Interstitial Cystitis, which is a bladder pain condition with no cure. Most people spend years and go to multiple doctors over several years before they finally are diagnosed. I had a bladder infection, when the antibiotics were finished the infection was gone but the pain was still there. He told me he thought I had IC and sent me to a urologist who confirmed it. I have talked to others with IC and they can't believe that my primary care doctor knew what it was. he thinks outside the box when necessary.

I feel lucky to have Dr. Szeto as my doctor and I hope he never retires. He is Chinese and an osteopathic doctor, though he doesn't use manipulation but it does mean he doesn't have the tunnel vision that many doctors have, He is very active in the community and drove the effort to set up and head the Asian Health and Service Center among his many accomplishments.

Dr Szeto has been my physician for many years. I cannot accurately express my gratitude for how I feel about this man, his professional manner, his dedication to his patients, or his overall absolute skill as a practitioner. He has treated me and my daughter with the utmost care. I recently moved to Hawaii and my only lament is that Dr Szeto couldn't move with me. He will always be my number one favorite physician.

I have been a patient of Dr. Szeto's for the last 10 years. The office staff is friendly and helpful, calls are returned quickly and it is fairly easy to get in quickly when needed. Dr. Szeto takes the time to listen and also make overall health recommendations to better your life. He doesn't hesitate to send you to a specialist if needed and has made it known to me that patients are his first concern, not insurance companies. He is however very careful to check your coverage before recommending prescriptions and other treatment, he strives to find a balance of the best option for you and you health plan/check book.

PROS: Easy to communicate with, short waits, quick to schedule appointments
CONS: none
