I can't say enough good things about Dr. Sidle. He was so knowledgeable and was great at explaining the why and the how behind his suggestions for my treatment. He also made sure that I understood what he was suggesting and took my input seriously. All of our questions were answered and he was kind and pleasant to talk to. I felt really comfortable in his office and having him in charge of my care and I really couldn't be happier with the whole experience.

He’s very smart, talented and honest. He also listens to my concerns graciously. It’s just that the healing process for my procedure takes about a year, and it’s only been 6 months, so I can’t make a final judgement till I see the final product.

Dr Sidle is by far one of the best and personable doctors I have ever met. He’s honest, kind, and actually takes time to get the full picture of what’s happened, what’s bothering you and why. He’s extremely knowledgeable and realistic. He communicates with you and educates you. If there were more doctors like Dr Sidle, MDs would be one of the most trusted professions. If I could rate him a million stars instead of 5 I would. Already recommended him to multiple people.

The experience with Dr. Sidle and his associates has been top notch. From scheduling, to surgery and post op appointment, everything has gone smoothly. It’s been one week since my revision rhinoplasty (had one done with a different doctor in 2018) and so far my nose looks great and seems to be healing well. Most importantly, at the initial consult, Dr. Sidle listened to my functional and cosmetic concerns and gave me honest feedback and suggestions on the best way to achieve the look I wanted, while still looking natural and like myself. I am so happy I decided to do my surgery with Dr. Sidle… He is an extremely knowledgeable and experienced surgeon, has a great bedside manner, and is confident in his abilities, which made me very comfortable.

I had a really positive visit with Dr. Sidle (even though my in-person visit was rescheduled as a telehealth visit after an emergency cancellation on his end). He was prepared for my case specifically, answered my questions efficiently, and presented all of his recommendations/options in a concise and helpful manner. I thought he also did a really great job explaining the medical details to me and continually checked in with me to make sure I understood exactly what he was telling me. I feel really confident with his abilities as a surgeon and would absolutely recommend Dr. Sidle to other potential patients.
