I just feel Dr. Sidle, MD is an excellent, kind, fun (needed at times that are difficult), and very professional doctor. Erin his PA is excellent too!! I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Sidle, MD (and Erin), as both a reconstructive surgeon and plastic surgeon. I used him for both surgeries. The best!!

Dr. Sidle and his team was fantastic. Not only did he spend 30 minutes listening to me. But he was honest in trying to help me. and went above and beyond and sending me referrals to the mayo clinic and the Cleveland clinic. Given how complex my issues were for him and his team. Dr.sidle is fantastic doctor and a great listener. 5 stars hands down.

Dr Sidle and his PA Erin Hoke Are fantastic! They are extremely thorough, and answered every question in depth. I had nasal reconstructive surgery using a rib graft. He is one of the few surgeons in the area who performs this procedure, and I am very glad I ended up in his office! He is highly skilled and particular. After a nose injury over 20 years ago, and 2 previous surgeries, I was a little bit of a challenge. My breathing is now hugely improved along with the appearance of my nose. I cannot recommend Dr Sidle enough. You will be in great hands!

I am thrilled with the results of my procedure and cannot say enough in praise of Dr. Sidle. He is a surgeon of great skill and also highly compassionate and dedicated to the well being of his patients. He has chosen an excellent team, especially Erin Hoke, who is professional, efficient, caring, and supportive. I recommend Dr. Sidle without reservation.

I found your guy for facial surgery! I searched the entire midwest, and after many consultations, I decided on Dr Sidle. The results are fabulous. I couldn't recommend him more highly!

Dr. Sidle is fantastic! I consulted with him about a septal repair and nose job. He answered all my questions with detail and gave me a sensible expectation for a beautiful and functional nose. He and Erin kept in touch daily after my surgery...I didn't feel like just another patient. I'm ecstatic about the outcome. ..even with some slight swelling left (typical until fully healed), I'm already breathing 100% and have received many compliments on my new nose! Absolutely wld recommend Dr Sidle!

I was seeking out a doctor to perform cosmetic repair my on upper eyelid due to an eye infection. After visiting doctor after doctor to find a plastic surgeon that was qualified and trusted, I found Dr Sidle. He became the obvious choice for me for a number of reasons but what stuck out at me is that: 1) He truly cares 2) He is a perfectionist at his profession and 3) He is the best at what he does. He came highly recommended from a number of his peers.

1.0 star rating 5/23/2016 If you are looking for a doctor who cares more about his income than his statement, then this is the doctor for you. He made erroneous notes in his chart which led my insurance to reject the pre-authorization for my surgery. I dealt with nothing but incompetence with his staff. He refused to talk to me on the phone, insisting that I come in to see him to talk. It's all about the billing, and not about the patients. There are much better docs out there.

Dr. Sidle is amazing - hands down the best plastic surgeon in Chicago!! It?s obvious from the moment you meet him that he takes pride in his work and really enjoys what he does. My time with him never felt rushed ? he took time to answer all of my many questions and explained the pros and cons of everything in a way that was easy to understand. Most importantly, Dr. Sidle is a perfectionist ? always a good quality to look for when choosing a plastic surgeon!!

Dr. Sidle performed a septoplasty, turbinate reduction and a rhinoplasty surgery on me. It's been three months since my surgery and I am very satisfied with the results. Dr. Sidle and staff were professional answering all of my questions and I never felt rushed during any of my appointments. The day of the surgery Dr. Sidle sat with me to go over the entire procedure one last time to ensure we were on the same page with my expectations.
