Dr Sydney is excellent . My last experience with his front office staff was not very pleasant . I found them rude and not paying attention when I’m standing at the counter . Even when leaving and making a future appointment the lady did. Not even speak with me when handing me the appointment sheet ! Very rude !

I would like to personally praise Dr. Sidney because he probably saved my life and I cannot imagine any higher praise. If you have heart related issues you could not be in better hands.

Very impressed with the knowledge of the doctor and nurses. The office is very clean and because of the virus we were taken to the exam room where we could keep our distance from other patients. Everything has been done with precision and professionalism. Thank you for the personal care.

I am very pleased with my visits with Dr Sidney. He is very knowledgeable and explains my my options thoroughly. Since he did my Afib surgery in 2018 I am doing very well. He shows concern and follows up with his patients. That is very rare these days. I definitely will recommend others to him.

Dr. Sidney was an excellent physician. He explained everything so that my parents could understand. He even called me after hours to follow-up on a concern that I had. He had a lot of patience with us. The office staff were very friendly and accommodating. They took care of issues with the lab every time that something came up. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Sidney to others. Thank you for all that you did for my mom :)

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!
