Dr. Siefker and his team are amazing. Just recently went through a tonsillectomy, the surgery itself was quick and afterwards Dr. Siefker came to check up me before I left. About 5 days later I went back for a follow up In a lot of pain, Michele and Dr. Siefker both helped me feel better before I left by giving me 2 shots and a new prescription. And I have another appointment in 2 days to see how I’m doing. The office is clean and nice. The staff is nice & helpful. And I would 10/10 recommend

While on a 2 month visit to Florida, I developed throat and neck pain. I was initially told they don't take walk-ins, but after explaining my situation, they asked me to come in that morning. Dr. Siefker spent a few minutes chatting with me BEFORE discussing my ailments putting me immediately at ease. He then performed a few in-house diagnostic tests all the while showing me what we were looking at. I then received his diagnosis and remedy. Throughout the process, he was warm, caring & patient.
