We had no problems with Dr Hidalgo, we did get a little concerned taking our baby into her for surgery after seeing these not so great reviews but in the end we decided they weren't that similar to our situation and our initial visit with her and emails after seemed like she cared and were personal and nice. We also weren't overly concerned with her as surgeon more of the anesthesia and we were going to be worried about that no matter where we went. Our experience was a good one.

Seeing this doctor was not a tramatic experience. She suggested an invasive procedure to our little baby that was against the most recent guideline of American Association of Pediatrics. Thinking that our baby could have gone through unnecessary procedure or medication really makes me get tears in my eyes. I went to see another doctor for a second opinion, and he was very nice and understanding. I do not recommend Dr. Hidalgo at all.

I would not recommend Dr. Hidalgo-Tamola to anyone. I was diagnosed with bladder cancer under her care. After the surgery to remove the cancer and full diagnosis of bladder cancer she recommended removing my bladder. Thankfully, I got a second opinion from a UW Urologist who stated that was not needed and that I could just undergo BCG treatments and we would monitor for cancer. I have been through several bcg treatments and am still cancer free with my bladder. I have now left Group Health.
