Dr. Sidney & staff operates a very Professional Health Care Business. Since I started with him, he has installed a tiny heart monitor in my chest. The reading from the device gave Dr. Sidney the information he needed to perform the correct & successful procedure on my heart. The pre & post surgery information given to me & my wife was detailed and at a level where we understand. This is the Doctor for your heart. Joseph Roberson

I was referred to Dr Sidney for PVC. I was very satisfied with my visit and all he had to do. His staff are top of the line, very friendly. Dr Sidney was very thorough in his exam and explaining what was going on. He explained the problem and the procedure to check further. All when really good. I would recommend Dr Sidney if he is the type of doctor you need. Thanks to him and his wonderful staff.

Dr Sidney has been treating me for AFIB and he performed an ablation surgery on me October 2018. He previously prescribed Tikosyn in 2017 to alleviate the AFIB. He monitored my condition and we decided the surgery was necessary. I stopped taking the Tikosyn in January 2019. I had a follow-up office visit in December 2018 and again in March 2019. My EKG in March was perfect and I have been feeling great since my surgery. Dr Sidney's explanations and his patient care are excellent.

If ever there was a time to be sick, it's this decade. Medicine has come along way and so have the Doctors. Doctor Sidney came into my life with the deliberate goal of healing me and that he did. From the start Dr. Sidney quickly gained my full confidence because his level of knowledge of my condition and his ability to state a plan to move forward seemed sound and logical. It is a great thing to meet a man who can save lives.

N/A as there is nobody close enough to here I'd recommend. Hypothetically I'd recommend an Excellent. Btw, the next item is also a N/A, and the next two items each has multiple questions but unary answers. I suggest you get a professional to design your surveys.

Dr. Sidney installed my pace maker and also treats my for Afib. My routine visits are meaningful in that between Dr. Sidney and his staff I leave with a feeling that I completely understand my situation, know my options and what to expect in the future. I also have the highest respect for all the office staff.

I arrived alone and terrified. Convinced I could not survive surgery after two heart attacks. It took nearly a year and several visits but Dr. Sidney never gave up on me, did not get impatient with me. I now have the needed defib implant. The entire experience of office visits and hospital stay eased by Dr's attitude and caring nature. Highly recommend him for cowards!

Dr Sydney is a true professional and a caregiver that goes above and beyond for his patients. He treated my husband, who was critically ill, as if he was a member of his own family. We could not have received better care anywhere. Dr Sydney’s knowledge, kindness and compassion, make him a rare physician in today’s world of medicine. We were blessed to have been treated by Dr Sydney and his amazing team.

Was referred by Dr. Masindet, successfully implanted my ICD. I believe if it was not done I would not be here today. Am still living with CHF and glad to be around to see our grand kids grow.

I just had my 2nd ablation with Dr. Sidney and could not ask for a more compassionate and caring doctor. He explains everything before any procedure or course of action in understandable terms and listens patiently to any questions I have. He and his staff are always friendly and helpful. His assistant, Trinka is also a great asset. She makes you feel like you’ve known her for a long time and cares about your feeling and also answers all questions you may have. I highly recommend this doctor!
