Dr. Sidi came highly recommended by my primary care Doctor. On my visit he was extremely patient and asked several times if I had any other questions. . His bedside manner is kind and caring. I would recommend him to others seeking a gastrointestinal specialist. His staff was courteous and professional.

worst Doctor ever! the staff lies about him being a good doctor! they made it seem like he was great! He was on his cell phone for 20 min of my appointment! he was very rude and has no bedside manor! I will look for another Doctor who knows what they are doing and puts the patient first over his phone!
in Douglas, AZ |
Dr. Sidi is very professional and caring. He is very knowledgeable and very interested in helping patients improve their health. I'm very glad I was referred to Dr. Sidi as he is helping me plan on healing and remaining healthy. Thank you!
Undoubtedly the most incompetent individual I've ever met. He should lose his license to practice medicine. He was not only rude and dismissive to me, but his staff as well. When reviewing my past surgical procedures, he said "I've never heard of joint replacement of the thumb." Since I've I had 6 surgeries on my spine, I brought up the subject of the DEA, he stated "I've never heard of the DEA).. No rectal exam, but he examined my teeth! Wrong end of my anatomy

I made sure Dr. Sidi was in my insurance network but the anesthelogist that was brought in for my procedure was not in my network. He billed me for $2400.00. Next time I'll get a doctor who is more transparent about costs and that all involved accept my insurance.

I visited Dr. Did in September, 2017, due to IBS issues. My impression of him is that he is one of the most personable doctors I have ever met. He gave eye contact, used a sense of humor to bring ease to the situation and he was very knowledgeable. I had a smooth experience! The timing of the appointment was also very expedient, and he helped me with everything I needed. My issues have been managed beautifully since the appointment, due to his accurate assessment and remedies. Sincerely, JMK

Very understanding doctor who listens his patients concern.Dr.Sidi made me feel comfortable being that this was a somewhat embarrassing situation
I've always suffered from stomach pain. I have been to so many doctors and no one has been able to tell me whats wrong. Finally someone referred me to the most amazing professional doctor I have ever been to Dr. Sidi! Off the bat he listened to me, he like actually listened he ran a few test right away and was able to diagnose. I feel so much better after feeling that this was all in my head for so many years I finally am able to live a normal life. Thank you so much Dr. Sidi!

had to wait over 2 hours to be seen. staff apologized but the doctor wasn't even there. when he arrived, didn't look like he knew how to use a computer. he kept asking his staff to help him. he answered his phone during my appointment and asked his staff to look at something that had nothing to do with me then didn't remember anything I told him before that. I also had to wait over 3 days to receive my prescription because the pharmacy couldn't read the paper he gave me. I will not return.

Dr. Sidi is OUTSTANDING. He's been extremely engaged and committed to making me healthy. I've been to a countless GIs in Tucson, AZ over the years and he's proven, without a doubt, the most invested in my well being and most driven to solve my issues. Thank you Doctor I'm glad I finally found someone to go too.
Great experience.. Dr Sidi was very thorough and explained my whole medical plan that I will be doing!! Thank you

I saw Dr. Sidi a couple days ago and I'm really glad I did. I saw him for a GI-related issue, but we ended up spending most of our time talking about the larger issue I have, of which I'm pretty sure the GI-related thing is a sub-issue. He had many ideas about this larger issue, and gave me some good tips and leads to explore, and wrote me a referral for another specialist. Very very knowledgeable, very sharp.

His staff is incompetent and rude. I have been attempting to get an important liver biopsy. He was supposed to be practicing in a hospital in my network, according to his website information, but he was not! Waited long time to get contract with the hospital. I have had to pick up records, contact the insurance company and the hospital. The hospital said his staff does not return telephone calls, and I know how that is so. He telephoned and left a nasty voicemail with no return number.

in Sierra Vista, AZ |
Dr. Sidi was kind, compassionate, and thorough. He took plenty of time to talk to me so he could make a more accurate assessment of my problem. Despite it being late in the day, he was 100% attentive. It was heartening to find a doctor who practices medicine with such dedication.

Dr. Sidi is the best doctor I have seen for my condition. He's extremely knowledgeable and the treatments he's given have definately helped. He also speaks fluent Spanish which helps me understand much better. Thank you Dr. Sidi!
