ZocDoc is a great concept but it needs some technical refinement. When my hip pain that I'd ignored for far too long became unbearable in the middle of the night on a weekend, I made an appointment to see Dr. Stidham 1st thing Monday morning through the ZocDoc website. ZocDoc confirmed the date and time with me at least 3 times before my appointment. Yet, when I arrived for my appointment the receptionist told me my appointment wasn't until 3 days later. But I definitely made the appointment for the day and time I was there (I have the email confirmations to prove it.) Here is where Dr. Stidham and his staff started to shine. The receptionist said she would see what she could do and had me take a seat. Less than 3 minutes later, Dr. Stidham's assistant called my name and ushered me to an exam room. So, not only did I get to see the Dr. when they didn't have me down for an appointment, but I didn't even have to wait long! Now, I know what you're thinking: Big deal, he took a walk-in, doctors do that all the time. Right? I get it. And if that was the only notable occurrence during my visit perhaps it wouldn't warrant this review. But wait, there's more. I could tell the doctor had a full schedule because the reception area was pretty full and any staff-member I saw was moving with a purpose. When Dr. Stidham walked in he got right to work, but was in no way rushing through the exam. After talking to me to get an idea of what was going on with my hip, he manipulated my leg while I gave him feedback about my pain. He only needed a few seconds to tell me what he thought was the source of my pain. Now, everyone knows doctors' diagnoses are usually, if not always, educated guesses. But what I really appreciated about Dr. Stidham was, although he was very confident in the diagnosis, he was quick to say the diagnosis may be wrong. He had me get an x-ray (from the awesome, super-nice x-ray technician down the hall) which confirmed his diagnosis. But he took it a step further and ordered an MRI to make sure he wasn't missing anything. He went over what my treatment options were and explained what to expect with the different treatments. All the while he made sure to answer all my questions. To sum it all up Dr. Stidham is extremely knowledgeable, thorough, systematic, and professional. What more can you ask for?
