About Me

Care Philosophy

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.

What People Say About Dr. Rafael Sierra, MD
Reply
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.
