Dr. Sidman is always available and listens to what your concerns may be. She also has no problem telling you exactly how she sees it. She has been my doctor for 25+ years and I will continue to see her until one of us is not available any more :) Her office staff has always been exceptional and I never have a problem leaving a message for the nurse of making appointments for last minute sickness.

Dr. Sidman saw me in her office the morning I called for an appointment. She diagnosed and treated my ailment professionally and listened with excellent bed side manner. She is knowledgeable, caring, and highly interested in helping the patient. I have been a patient of hers for several years and am very happy that she is my physician.

My wife and I were patients of Dr. Sidman. We actually did find her to be very friendly, with good bedside. Unfortunately her staff is not so friendly and caring, particularly Pamela McClellan. She was very rude when I asked her to renew my BP medication without an appointment. I explained that I travel a lot for work and the hour plus drive was challenging for my schedule. She told me I should not have picked a Dr. closer to home. She told me I should see a telemedication service and dismissed me as patient. I have never been treated so poorly by a medical provider than at this practice. Unfortunately, this behavior is reflective of the whole practice. I would not recommend using Dr. Sidmans proctice. And yes, we already found a closer practice.

My wife and I have been patients of Dr. Sidman ever since moving to Gainesville in 1995. She's a very thorough and caring physician who is always interested in the patient's good health. I can also say that she is straight forward in dealing with her patients and happy to answer any question fully. We have been very pleased with the care we have received from Dr. Sidman.

Yearly checkup, after a long time away. Dr. Sidman and all the others there were very helpful. Even though I can be extremely stubborn, Dr. Sidman persisted (I believe a common metaphoric phrase is "beat me about the head and shoulders") until I realized that I really should pay attention and follow my doctor's orders!

Dr. Sidman is the best! It’s easy to get appointments. I always get responses to my calls or emails. She spends as much time with me as I need during my appointment. I recommend her to anyone looking for a primary care physician.

The way she treated my husband and I both the last time we were in the office was outright disrespectful. No doctor should ever treat a patient the way she treated us. Needless to say we found a new doctor the following day.

I was scheduled for a routine followup for asthma, which I have had most of my life, and came down with a cold. The office refused to call in a refill for my rescue inhaler. I came in and was told that I could not have a second inhaler, because I had not earned the 'privilege'. Her quick retort that I could 'go somewhere else' if I didn't agree with her, while her staff cowered, points to a lot of use. As someone who is also in the medical field, to be treated in such a manner is unacceptable.
