I've been seeing Dr. Sider for over 10 years and he is a fantastic orthopedic Doctor and Surgeon. He is a kind and understanding person, and a very competent doctor. He is extremely professional and always takes the extra time with you to explain your condition, resolution and ongoing care. The support staff in his office is great and always very accommodating. The head Physical Therapist, Sean is outstanding and is very involved in all aspects of your ongoing treatment. This year I have gone through two meniscus tears (and surgeries), on both knees with amazing results. I highly recommend Dr. Sider and this office for any orthopedic needs.

I’m an adult female and starting 6 months ago, I had shoulder pain so severe that I could not sleep at night or even use my left arm for normal activities. My son, who was a patient of Dr. Sider, introduced me to Dr. Sider because he trusted Dr. Sider and his team. When I met Dr. Sider about my shoulder issue, he was a very professional, experienced and courteous physician. After undergoing surgery with Dr. Sider, I was able to do daily activities within only one week and my quality of sleep was great again without pain. Dr. Sider and his team followed up by having me do physical therapy at his office by his amazing physical therapist. It is now two weeks following surgery and I can lift my arm again and each day the range of motion and strength in my shoulder keeps improving. My quality of life has improved tremendously since I met Dr. Sider!

My mother has been a patient of Dr. Sider for over 15 years. She's 85 and has arthritis in her back, hands and knees. Dr. Sider has worked with her through physical therapy all of the years she's seen him. She had surgery Nov. 2019 for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome on her left hand and the results were excellent. She had knee replacement surgery 3 weeks ago and is doing extremely well! Her recovery is excellent. What a difference he made with her surgery. She and I are very pleased with the results. He and his entire staff are kind, knowledgeable and patient. He is not a Dr. that rushes into surgery. The physical therapy he provides is great! If you need an orthopedic doctor, Dr. Sider is the one I recommend. He's the BEST!

We were greeted by very friendly staff and we were seen by Dr. Sider himself throughout our visit. He was friendly, knowledgeable, and very willing to help and offer up advise. My daughter needed an MRI and we were seen that afternoon. The office did all of the leg work in a very pleasant and customer service oriented way. Dr. Sider was extremely professional and had a great bedside manner. A great experience given the changes in the health care systems today.

Excellent Doctor! I had a running injury in the knee, Dr Sider was able to get me an MRI the same day. The MRI confirmed a torn meniscus. Dr Sider repaired the knee the same week. He has a complete Physical Therapy team in his office. Dr checks on the progress of his patients as they do the PT. I'm very impressed with his dedication and care of his patients.

Dr. Sider’s kind and compassionate bedside manner is only exceeded by his skill as a physician and surgeon. I was struggling for 7 months with pain in my shoulder that progressively worsened until I was sleeping an intermittent couple of hours at a time and struggled to put a shirt or coat on. Dr. Sider saw me the day I called for an appointment, spent time on the phone with the insurance company to get me an MRI the following day, and saw me the day after the MRI to discuss my options.

Dr.Sider is by far one of the best orthopedist around, and his office staff is great. I am having trouble get a pre approval for a MRI. Dr. Sider got on the phone with the insurance company himself trying to help me. I am presently going to p/t, and his staff is fantastic and helpful. Many times Dr. Sider is there supervising and answering any questions. I have not seen another doctor care as much for his patients as Dr. Sider. I highly recommend him.

I have seen Dr. Sider for both a strained achilles tendon and carpal tunnel syndrome in both hands. Dr. Sider preformed surgery on my left hand and did a fantastic job. He will be performing surgery on my right hand soon. I am extremely pleased with level of care I have received, not only from Dr. Sider, but from the office staff and the physical therapy staff at Mid Island Orthopedics and Physical Therapy.

Dr. Sider repaired my torn quad last August. He is a very talented and gifted surgeon who performed an unusual surgery to reattach it to my knee. After physical therapy at Mid Island Orthopedics I now have full use of my leg. Dr. Sider and his staff are very compassionate and caring. They give very personalized and comprehensive care to their patients in a warm and welcoming atmosphere. I cannot imagine a better experience or being in better hands than Dr. Sider and his team.

When our daughter, a gymnast need knee surgery there was no other Doctor then Dr. Sider with whom I would trust our daughters health. His commitment to each of his patients is evident each time we visited his office. Her surgery went flawlessly, and she made a full recovery. The time she spent in his pt office under his watchful eyes aided in her recovery. She was back to full gymnast mode in months. I never thought I would see her tumble again but with Dr. Sider's help she is now pain free.

We have been seeing Dr. Jeffrey Sider, a sole practitioner for twenty years. He is one of the most caring physicians we have ever met. He is honest, thorough and takes the time to discuss and examine you, he never rushes. I walked into his office one Friday afternoon for my mother, 95 (who fractured her ankle) and Sammy told me to bring her in right away that afternoon. If you need to see Dr. Sider the same day, they always try to accommodate you. Physical Therapists , Office Staff are great.

Dr. Sider is a caring professional...He is a throw back to when Doctors actually spend time discussing your medical predicament while at the same time talking about options, then developing a game plan to address same. He is with you every step of the way, whether that be observing the PT you are undertaking or encouraging you post op....Dr Sider is supported by an excellent staff in the front of the office and in the uniquely tailored physical therapy headed by Sean...

Dr. Sider and his team are caring, professional and patient. Everything he has told me to date has been correct. He has performed surgery on my knee and strategized on methods, techniques and medicine in order to avoid future surgery and keep my fragile knees healthy. Rehab was very worthwhile and they did not attempt to extend it unnecessarily. He maintains the friendliness and culture of a time gone by while still providing a modern medical practice. I highly recommend him and his team!
