I went to Dr. Siefer in 2007 because I wasn't happy with the Doctor who was treating my condition. He was attentive to my problem and explained what changes I needed to make and the medication he was prescribing. I have been his patient for 13 years and my problem has not returned.

I saw Dr. Siefer on 3/7/19 due to a glitch after surgery done by another doctor who was on vacation. My sutures dissolved; the wound opened. Dr. Siefer walked in, never came closer than 6 feet, never examined me, and grumpily bellowed "Get your pants back up". I went to Chandler hospital emergency room. 2 weeks later I saw my surgeon, told him what happened, and he told me Dr. Siefer had many complaints of this sort, had been reprimanded, was a grump and the practice was hoping he would retire.

Dr Siefer acted as if I was interrupting his day. He didn't respond well to questions and made decisions about my health without a physical exam. He spent the entire time behind his computer. He asked a few questions and decided there was nothing he could do for my problem. In the end, I had to ask for a medication change. Afterwards, the medication change didn't happen due to a glitch on his end which the office did not follow-up on. So I went without medication for over 2 weeks. Dr Siefer act

Dr Siefer really helped me. He seems to really care. And his approach helps me relax even though I am always stressed when any one is working "down there"

Needs some lessons on bedside manners. Made me feel like I was bothering him for me being in pain. Grumpy old man that needs to retire. If you're coming across like you don't want to be there, maybe you shouldn't be working with the public.

Dr. Seifer was not aggressive enough in handling my case in my opinion. When asking about how long I would have to wear a catheter before trying possible other ways to treat my symptoms was told I don't have a crystal ball 2 times. Not very professional and I felt dismissed. I was left with an old crusry catheter because they were closing early and there wasnt enough time...they should have scheduled me at a better time. I believe he's afraid of trying anything more aggressive and so moved on
