Dr. Sierra is wonderful. He is such a kind doctor and he will patiently answer all of your questions, no matter how long it takes. You can trust him - even though he is a surgeon, he won’t opt to operate or do anything invasive unless it is absolutely necessary. He put me at ease when I was anxious and scared and he is just wonderful.

I had the unfortunate pleasure of having Dr Sierra as my surgeon, TWICE at Broward Health Coral Springs. He always took the time to explain the procedures and answer any questions, even if they were silly. Definitely the surgeon you want plus it doesn't hurt that he's easy on the eyes. :)

Dr. Sierra is great. However, his staff is not very friendly. The level of customer service received in his office is not great. For the amount of money paid to a surgeon, the service should be fantastic.

About Me

I treat my patients the way I would like my family to be treated. For me that means in a compassionate and professional way. Making sure that every one of my patients understands their disease process and the reasoning behind performing or not surgery. I am also a firm believer in a team approach when the situation requires more than one specialty for the optimal outcome.
