Dr. Siddique quickly and accurately diagnosed the cause of my severe back pain, guided me through the different healing options and helped me make the right choices to get back to full health. He was confident, competent and kind and his staff was very helpful.

Dr. Siddique preformed spine surgery on me in 2009. He was amazing and the surgery was very successful. I wish he was still taking my insurance, because I would go back to him. I trusted him completely.
