Don't get me started with this pompus specialist whose ego E.dges G.od O.ut! He is an excellent diagnostician and probably excellent surgeon (althought never needed him for that) As for his medicine...bad judgement calls. Lead me to much pain and suffering. His skill is outstanding but there are other specialist just as good who can communiate and not talk down to you, who don't make you wait and who have an effiiently run office. Front office staff is VERY unprofessional and lots of personal chatter and don't act like they care. Imagine that when you are in the midst of losing your vision.!

I DISAGREE WITH" VITALS GUEST" DR.SIDIKAROS OFFICE IS A GREAT OFFICE. THE MINUTE I COME IN THE FRONT OFFICE IS VERY POLITE AND ALWAYS EXPLAINS TO THE PATIENTS THAT ARE WAITING AND THE PATIENTS THAT ARE WALKING IN THAT THE WAIT TIME MAY BE 2-3 HOURS FOR THE WHOLE VISIT. I MYSELF APPRECIATE THAT BECAUSE I MYSELF STILL WORK, BUT NEVER HAS DR.SIDIKARO OR HIS STAFF MISTREATED ME OR SHOWED THAT I WASNT IMPORTANT.....I WOULD RECOMEND DR. SIDIKARO IF YOU OR A FAMILY MEMBER ARE HAVING ISSUES WITH YOUR RETINA THIS IS THE GUY TO GO SEE....HE SAVED MY MOTHER VISION AND MINE......ALSO I LOVE THERE HOURS THEY OPEN EARLY AND STAY OPEN LATE....

This doctor has all the right thing on the wall and is an EXCELLENT diagnositician and surgeon (althought have not had to have any surgery by him). He is very smart and has a BIG ego...which for me means your are E.dging G.od O.ut. As for his medical judgement it is POOR and time and consideration are not always spent as needed. This last visit I was so mismanaged I almost suffered seizures due to SEVRE inflammation running along my eye that spread to my brain. My vision deteriorated and my health and vision were at risk for a poor judgement call in MY opinion...and I am a DOCTOR too.It is ok now but I would NEVER go back to him. His front office staff is also VERY unprofessional. As you sit and wait they are talking about the doctor and how he is crazy and they get irritated when he tries to get them to fit emergency patients and important follow ups in. They also talk aobut the cliets and act like making an appoinment is an incovenience to them....do they know who is paying their check.And at 6p they are surley out the door leaving their doctor all by himself...and don't expect them to be courteous and say good by to anyone in the waiting room.The front office is a refelction of the doctor.What a big dissaointment for such a smart man.

When I made my first appointment, the staff told me to be on time but to be prepared to spend an extensive time there because the doctor will take an emergency patient at any time.So, with that information, I went to his office and was treated by the Dr.with the utmost of care. His procedure saved my sight. I'm a lucky person. I couldn't ask for a better eye doctor.

This was one of the most angry and evil doctor's offices I have ever been to. The staff is just as bad as Sidikaro. Life is too short. Go some place else. If your eye doctor refers you to Sidiakro, go in the other direction. Your eyes and and your heart will thank you. These people have NO compassion at all. Sidikaro needs to close his practice and go into raising police guard dogs because that is how he and his staff will treat you.
