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!

I'll say thank you to Dr Yarbrough for recommending Dr Sydney first. And Dr Sydney, you are awesome! It has been 3 months today since he performed my heart ablation and I'm still in rhythm. His office staff runs things things smoothly I don't hardly know what the waiting room looks like. Dr Sydney called me at home 3 days after my procedure to check on me. Can't recommend him highly enough!

I am very thankful for the surgery that Dr. Sidney performed. He is extremely professional. He placed a defibrillator in my chest. Before surgery he came and spoke with me in the hospital. At this time he answered all my presurgical questions. After surgery he also came by not only to see how I was doing but to see if I had any other questions. I felt very comfortable and confident in all of my communications with Dr. Sydney.

I would like to say the one appointment with Dr. Sidney and his staff went great. However today when I called to simply ask a question I was rudely cutoff and told (in a very abrasive manner) all I can do is take a message thank you and put on hold and left there for four minutes. Then upon the receptionists return was asked if I wanted to cancel my procedure with Dr. Sidney?????? No I just need to know if I should cancel an MRI on the day prior..won't get a call back until tomorrow???
