Specialties

Dr. David A Siker has the following 2 specialties

  • Diagnostic Radiology

    Radiologists help doctors get a closer look at what’s happening inside your body. If your primary care doctor wants to investigate your symptoms further, they may refer you to a radiologist to get an ultrasound or x-ray. Some radiologists specialize in mammography and breast imaging, which is who you see when you need a mammogram. A Radiologist can also determine if bones are broken or fractured after any kind of accident.
    Radiologists are trained to perform MRIs and CT scans, both of which are used to determine the presence of diseases or disorders and help your doctor properly diagnose you. They can detect anything from tumors, bleeding and infections to bone and muscle disorders.

  • Radiology

    The different types of medical imaging are X-ray, computed tomography (CT) scans, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasound, and nuclear medicine.
    Radiologists are experts in these different types of tests and can advise a primary care doctor on which test is most appropriate in a specific case.

really good results on my neck

I have always had aching in my neck which sometimes gives me some shocks down my left arm. My chiropractor usually could make it better for awhile but then it just didnt go away. He finally sent me to Siker medical for my neck and arm pain. Nina Ford NP and Dr. Siker evaluated me and told me I might eventually need neck surgery but suggested I try nerve blocks. I had one nerve block for my arm. It has been 4 months now and my pain is still gone. The experience was really good. Their sedation nurse Scott was also awesome. I did have to wait a little bit I guess Dr. Siker was at hospital the day of my procedure, but I feel like they really know what they are doing. (grateful person from the dalles).

Very gifted Doctor

I had been having really bad headaches and some blurred vision for several months. My doctor had me get a MRI of my brain which showed a brain aneurysm which had been growing and pressing on a nerve. A friend knew about Dr. Siker at Emanuel Hospital. My primary doctor also sent me to Dr. Delashaw at OHSU. Dr. Delashaw said that the only possible treatment was with brain surgery. Dr. Siker said he was pretty sure he could treat it with minimally invasive treatment (Using Coils). I liked Dr. Sikers calm unassuming manner. I decided to let him try. It took him 3 hours while I was asleep. I went home the next day, with some bruising in my leg. My headaches were almost completely gone, and they did go away completely after the first week. Dr. Siker called me twice. When I first met him he spent an hour with me and my husband on on one. I am grateful to Dr. Siker and his staff. In retrospect, I think Dr. Delashaw was arrogant, and it makes me mad that he was absolutely going to take me to brain surgery without even entertaining that there were other ways to do this. Since then, I have heard more about Dr. Siker. He doesnt get the exposure that the university does, but people in the medical community say he is the single best physician for brain aneurysms in Portland, bar none. I was lucky to have been connected with him.

this man is a gem

In 2007 I had a ruptured brain aneurysm and almost died. They said they couldnt fix it without open brain surgery, but my family heard about Dr. Siker at Emanuel Hospital and I was transferred there. Dr. Siker fixed my brain aneurysm at the time with minimally invasive technique. He was wonderful to me and my family. I have recovered completely since then. Since that time, he has even taken care of my back pain with injections. He is the smartest doctor I have ever known. He really cares. I know that he is busy, but always gets back to me on the phone or by email.

HIPPA

One of the most unprofessional experiences I've had with a physician. My results were delivered in the waiting room in front of other patients and families of the patients. There was no time to ask any questions as it was a VERY private and personal diagnosis, as EVERYONE in the lobby could hear. Still contemplating turning the physician into HIPPA. HORRIBLE! Would NEVER go back to this office!

Two Stars

He performed a new type of surgery on me to fix facet joints. Upon telling him I was not doing any better after several visits I was left with a I don't know what I can do and not futher action on his part to either correct the problem or refer me on to a specialist to try to correct the problem.
