I received personal one on one care, where he actually listened to what I have to say and is genuinely interested in my health, spending A LOT of time with me when necessary making lots of notes and coming up with alternate health care to resolve my exceptionally difficult issues. Could not ask for a better doctor!

His office is conveniently located right off I-26 and his staff is very professional, friendly and helpful. My wait is never more than 10 to 15 minutes. Dr. Sydney is very professional and concerned about your health and treatment. He takes his time in explaining everything in detail and in a way that you understand the problem and the treatment. You never get the feeling that he is rushing you out.
