Patient Comments (4)
in Belleview, Fla |
Dr Siva is very good he listens to you and treats the problem honestly. He doesn't want you addicted to things that will cause you problems later down the road and monitors you to make sure of it. He always has a smile for you when he comes in and isn't afraid to send you to the qualified specialists if he is not of the expertise or knowledge of your complaint. I have been going to him for years. S.Smith

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.
Ocala, FL |
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.

The office staff is terrible to work with.
