Not a great experience

After needing to select a primary care physician for my new insurance, I saw Dr. Sidarous several times. It was not a good experience. While I have no quarrel with his clinical skills per se, I found him cold, brusque, and uncommunicative. If a doctor doesn't take the time to actively listen to a patient and respond appropriately, it doesn't exactly instill confidence. On the plus side, his office staff was courteous and helpful, although the waiting room was very overcrowded and I could have done without the religious radio station playing in the background.

I think that his office staff must have changed a lot from the previous reviews, because I had a great experience. They did forget to call in a prescription, but when I called after hours to ask about it, the problem was solved within 5 minutes, and very apologetically. My experience has been just fine.

from the moment i stepped into the office, i knew i was in excellent hands. it seemed like without me even saying a word, Dr. Sidarous had the answer to all my problems. Dr Sidarous probably could have even fixed my golf swing. Dr Sidarous is engaging and courteous, highly recommended to everyone.5 Stars

Finding a new doc and have filed a complaint

Wow, begin with this was my second visit with this doc and after the first visit I should have clued in. The office staff is VERY, VERY, unprofessional and rarely will call back or get prescriptions called in timely. My last visit I received antibiotics, no diagnosis, loads of tests and xrays and still NO CALL from Dr. I have phoned quite a few times (5) requesting results and NOTHING. I most recently called in for a prescription refill, 3rd call and final one was yesterday.
