Patient Comments (5)
in Palm Harbor, FL |
I am preparing to have my second surgery with Dr. Alidina and can say I am feeling relaxed and confident about the procedure. He takes the time to fully explain what to expect. He also preformed surgery on my 2 year old son many years ago with total caring and professionalism.
Tampa, FL |
Dr. Alidina explained my situation fully and answered all of my questions but, his staff is completely incompetent. I was scheduled for a simple CT scan in 3 weeks, showed up for the scan and was told that they did not accept my insurance and referred me to another radiology facility that did not accept my insurance. I had to do my own research and find a facility that accepted my insurance. This is completely unacceptable.

He was very understanding my problem and that I was extremely nervous talk to me and guided me through the process of the scope of my throat.
in Safety Harbor, FL |
Dr. Alidina was very professional explained what to expect prior to my child's surgery, level of pain she would have and healing process post operatively. I am very glad I selected him as my doctor and surgeon for my daughter.
Palm Harbor, FL |
I have nothing but respect for Dr. Alidina and his skills and knowledge. He is very thorough upon examination and explains everything very clearly. I would not hesitate to recommend anyone to him for their ENT needs. The office staff has always been very courteous and polite and I've not had any problems scheduling an appointment with him.
