I'm so happy that I'm in Dr. Sidle's care; I had melanoma on my face and he has done an amazing job in making a golf ball size hole in my face into a scar that is hardly visible. He's been very meticulous in my follow-up visits and I know the exact plan of care we have moving forward. I'd highly recommend him to anyone.

Felt immediately comfortable with Dr, Sidle and he had come highly recommended . He was thorough, and explained all of the issues in an understandable manner . I did not feel that he was “selling” or promising perfection, but rather was realistic about my surgery and what could be achieved . He listened to my concerns and addressed them in an honest and reassuring manner. He has a casual, non-arrogant demeanor and a good sense of humor which immediately puts one at ease.
