Patient Comments (2)
in Arlington, VA |
Receptionist was SUPER nice, even bringing my ID/health insurance card out to me. RE: Dr. Sidani. I asked about a surgery option and was told there was a 2-week painful recovery, but nothing more (inpatient vs. outpatient, etc.). Then I received a bill with additional $150 surgery copay for consultation visit - no surgery! I was never told any portion of the consultation procedure would cost more so am very disappointed and wonder if others in the same position. Not returning.

He is an excellent physician, very caring, knowledgeable, and took the time with me to explain options and treatments.
