Dr. Sidle was not only extremely professional but demonstrated such care and concern for his patient. He understood both the physical and emotional aspects of undergoing surgery and made himself available even after hours. He was patient and explained every step of the procedure before and after which was extremely comforting. I would highly recommend him both for the quality of his work and his care for the patient. Both extremely impressive.
