    Staff has lost several documents that were vital to my care. Siva has terrible bed side manner and doesn't take interest in patients. Was in hospital and didn't come see me after being paged within 48hrs. Please don't go to him.

    The worst communicator I have ever had to unfortunately work with. His staff is consistently turning over. His office lost LIFE THREATENING test results multiple times. Dr. Siva and team do not understand the importance of informing families of next steps or actions being taken to care for his patients. When stating his name to others in the healthcare community as the primary care physician, heads look down and staff go silent. I truly wish I could say otherwise, but please do not choose him.
