Great experience! All the staff was amazing. Nice, competent and caring. It was my first visit and I was impressed. Already recommending my husband get an appointment!
Good doctor on first impression.
If I had known how great Dr. Sikora was, I would not have pushed off scheduling an appointment with an allergy doctor. The staff is courteous and polite, and definitely answer any question you have and explain the procedures. Dr. Sikora is knowledgeable, is one of those doctors that you know listens to your concerns and takes them seriously, and recommends courses of treatment, but makes sure that you chose the one that works best for you.
Nurses and staff are also friendly and helpful! We switched to Dr. Sikora from another allergy doctor and have been very happy with him.
His team was busy, but it was clear they handled the multitude of tasks well. I must say that because of the one-way nature of traffic on Fall Hill Avenue, finding his office was not easy - even with MapQuest and GPS. The building looked to be totally unmarked on the outside and that further confused me as I made my way to my first appointment. I know where it is now and how to get there, so this will not be a problem for me in the future.
Fantastic all around. I wish all medical professionals were as personable and rational as Dr Sikora. Highly recommend this practice.
Excellent. He answered all my questions and proposed a plan for next March which is my bad time of the year.
Best MD I've had since my pediatrician 25 years ago; incredibly thorough, highly intelligent, not condescending in the least, and a bull terrier when it comes to chronic problems. Actually invested in his patients and their outcomes, and always thinking ahead to the next step if necessary. HIGHLY recommend him to anyone needing any of the specialty services his office provides - after finding him, I won't see anyone else in the area .
I've never had a doctor spend as much time with me and my sons case, than I experienced with Dr. Sikora. He made us feel welcome and gave us hope! His staff was equally as friendly and supportive. Everything I heard about Dr. Sikora is true. He's a great professional!
Beside manner was great! Nurse was amazing! Thankful we found this practice.
First visit, but excellent experience, all positive. Great staff, nurses and doctor. Highly recommend.
The overall visit was handled very professionaly. Dr. Sikora was very helpful in his diagnosis of my situation. I was very pleased with my treatment. I would definitly reccomend Dr. Sikora to anyone with any allergy problems.
It was only my first appointment. I can say that everyone I interacted with seemed to behave professionally. There were lots of initial testing done. Dr. Sikora was pleasant and appeared knowledgeable. Out of the 1.5 hour visit face-time with the doctor was approximately 2 15 minute chats. Which seemed adequate to cover my history, review the test results, and answer my questions. So, I'd say it was a positive first visit. I was prescribed a medicine to begin taking and rescheduled next month to discuss what effect it has.
I was very pleased with the entire visit. Dr. Sikora and his office staff live up to their Top Docs in VA #1 rating! Highly recommend. And he does pediatrics too.
Very satisfied! He appeared to listen to my concerns and clearly explain his thoughts and recommendations for treatment.
He was very professional and knowledgeable.

Bedside manners excellent. Glad we brought our 3 year old to him and his excellent staff. We highly recommend him and this office.

Doctor Sikora is a great Dr.
I have been a patient of Dr. Sikora for years. I am so grateful for him and for his wonderful staff. They are all so warm and friendly and provide excellent care. Dr. Sikora genuinely listens to his patients and has a great bedside manner. Truly a gem for allergy and asthma sufferers. A+
Highly knowledgeable and courteous. Nurses were also great.
Love Dr sikora. I have been a patient of his for 12 years now. Highly reccommend!!
Dr. Sikora had a lot of patients, today. However, he listened to me very patiently and carefully. He never rushed me. I felt that Dr. Sikora was genuinely concerned about my problems and WANTED to help me. He immediately devised a plan to better diagnose my situation, so as to better treat my condition. Dr. Sikora even took the time to inform me of research that was currently being conducted, in the area of my illness. Dr. Sikora gave me hope.
Dr Sikora is great. I had to take my 6 month old in for allergy testing/eczema and was not looking forward to it because of how long new patient appointments take. Happy to say that my wait was less then 5 minutes and Dr Sikora was back to see us in less then 10. We were finished within an hour and a half. He is friendly and knowledgeable, the office was very busy but he still took the time to answer my questions without seeming rushed. The staff we interacted with were also great. Would definitely recommend this place if you are looking for an allergist.
Dr. Sikora, his nurses and the lady who checked me out were nothing short of phenomenal. The lady who checked me in was not helpful, made me feel like I was bothering her and interrupting her on her cell phone. Outside of that things were great!
This is the most pleasant medical office environment I have ever experienced! Everyone always seems to be in a good mood and they are all extremely helpful.
Dr. Sikora really listens to what you have to say and has a wonderful bedside manner. I felt like he was knowledgeable and kept in tune with his field and took time to consider every aspect of my daughter's health concerns. I would highly recommend him.
Pleasant and thorough.
Office staff and nurses were friendly and professional; felt welcomed as soon as I walked in. Only waited a few minutes to see the doctor who came in smiling and greeted me with a handshake - just a feeling, but knew I was in good hands. Dr. Sikora was knowledgeable, professional, and personable - don't see that enough these days. I never felt rushed, but I could tell that he knew my time was valuable to me and took care of business with skilled efficiency. Thank you!
Staff is very nice!!!
It was great! Very thorough.
Dr. Sikora was extremely professional and knowledgable. He listened to my concerns and made me feel like I wasn't crazy! I would definitely recommend him, and already have, to family and friends!
Dr. Sikora took the time to explain my situation in terms that I could understand and seemed to be very thorough. The staff was very pleasant and helpful.
His office was extremely dirty, seats were ripped, and people were literally getting pushed through like cattle. We walked up to the front desk, where the woman was extremely unprofessional and was deep into her cell phone- and with a tone asked if she could help us... like we were inconveniencing her. Not only did they not review my fiancé's forms before he came in, but it turned out they could not see him because the front desk had not reviewed his papers we had turned in early. During that time, I was supposed to receive allergy shots... and the girl at the desk (absorbed in her phone) never checked the sign in sheet to put me on the list... telling me she "forgot me." And the icing on the cake, after we told them we wanted to transfer- the doctor's response to the assistant in the back (I don't think he realized we could hear him...) was "Whatever". Extremely unprofessional, dirty, and overall unpleasant experience. Will NEVER go back. This was definitely about making dough, and not about customer experience. I have myself worked for a doctor for a very long time, and this was simply inexcusable.
Office staff in 2 different offices ignored pts who were waiting for as long as 10 minutes though they were literally standing in front of the desk staff. Also allergy test results they promised to send to my other dr wee never sent. Very rude staff. Great doc. Overall disappointing.
He was very nice and very helpful. I really liked the doctor and appreciated his advice.
Absolutely love Dr.Sikora and his staff. We have gone there roughly 13 years now
Every one I met was professional and curteous including the receptionist and nurse doing my allergy testing. . Dr. Sikora was very nice, easy to talk to and provide clear medical advice.
Great doctor! Explained every step of the way eith great detail.
Informative, professional and thorough.
Excellent! I needed an allergist after relocating to this area. Dr. Sikora is very easy to communicate with and immediately embarked on a care regimen that will continue my very positive experience with "immunotherapy" (i.e. Allergy shots!). Many thanks!
Very friendly and professional
Dr. Sikora is a very professional and efficient doctor. He listens, he cares and is great with children.
The doctor and staff were very professional helpful, and informative.
Dr. Sikora has a very pleasant demeanor when dealing with his patients which helped my teenage daughter feel more comfortable. I would definitely recommend him to anyone dealing with allergy and asthma issues.
Excellent office and doctor Sikora is very proffesional and easy to talk to. This was my first vist and so far I really liked it.
My treatment approach was changed this morning, based on my body's reaction to last weeks shots. I should have been informed last week so I had time to review the change and the significant impact it would have on my treatment.
We have seen Dr.Sikora for roughly 10 years now. He is one of a kind! I have and will continue to recommend him to friends and family.
Office was dirty and instantly made me slightly concerned. Having worked for a doctor myself, this is a big red flag, especially when you are an allergy doctor of all things. Definitely felt that his speech was rehearsed, and didn't feel like he would even recognize my face if he saw me again. Overall awkward and unpleasant experience, and definitely felt like I was a number. At least buy some new office chairs when there are rips and springs coming out of the bottom!
Everyone was so nice. I was very pleased and will be returning.
Everyone on the staff does an exceptional job!
It was very pleasant! Enjoyed talking with the Doctor and staff. Made me feel very comfortable! Dr. Sikora is very thorough and explains everything in a way I could understand it!
Very nice staff !
This was our first visit to see Dr. Sinkora, however it was truly eye-opening. He really took the time to explain my daughter's food allergies and gave me options that I didn't know existed beyond avoiding her potential allergens. He seems to be very well-versed in the most up-to-date allergy research and made a point to share different research studies that are coming down the pipeline for potential future treatment options. It was refreshing talking to someone who treats you as a capable (read: intelligent) person and does not try to over-simplify the information. Parents need information, and if there's a lack of understanding, it's a doctor's responsibility to elaborate and explain. I truly appreciated the time he took to break things down for me.
Dr. Sikora is extremely nice and he was so helpful. He took the time to answer any questions I had and I didn't feel rushed when I was in his office. His staff is also very nice and friendly every time I visit.
It was great as usually. My Va family all goes to him. He is part of my family now
Dr. Sikora and his entire staff were very professional and competent. I left with a good feeling that my concerns were addressed and that an intelligent solution was offered.
Dr. Sikora was very polite and very knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend him to other people that are suffering g from allergies. He was great and very professional.
The best allergist ever!!
The office staff was very nice and helpful.
Dr. Sikora took time to listen to my daughter's history and to answer all of my questions. I have been a patient off and on for many years. I have always recommended him for adult patients, but after today's visit, I will wholeheartedly recommend him for pediatric patients as well. The rest of the staff is also very courteous and professional.
Office was very busy, but the staff was continually friendly and professional. I was very impressed.
He educated me right away about Hives, and that was highly satisfactory to me! And wanted to start resolving the problem not put bandaids on it. Awesome Dr!
My testing was started promptly and I didn't have to wait very long between the testing and seeing the doctor again. He explained everything in a detailed manner.
I appreciated the fact that he got right to the problem, took care of everything possible on the first visit and came up with some good options.
Dr. Sikora was great! Very knowledgeable, great bedside manner. Staff was extremely friendly, personable, and professional. Great office all around, comfortable environment. I highly recommend!
Doctor was attentive, staff was professional. My concerns were addressed and I will be returning for allergy therapy.
Great Allergy Dr. - very knowledgeable and skilled in his area when compared to other allergist Drs who have treated me.
I had a good office visit. Dr. Sikora today. The first Doctor to take care of my health problems. Have seen 4 Doctors in last 3 months. So far the best Doctor I've met.
Dr. Sikora rocks! He is always kind, very knowledgeable and easy going. His staff is the best! Highly Recommend!!!
Dr. Sikora and his staff were very friendly and professional. The Dr. was very knowledgeable.
The entire process from making an appointment as a new patient to my initial meeting was easy and efficient. The professional staff were great! I look forward to future visits.
Dr. Sikora was great! Our previous allergist was not invested in our son and didn't take the time to explain his allergy or even give us the information we needed to help him. I would highly recommend Dr. Sikora!
It was very quick and he was very professional. He was very informative. He was very attentive to my condition.
Doctor Sikora has helped my husband and I tremendously over the last several years. This office visit went very smoothly and Doctor Sikora was attentive, thorough, and pleasant. Loved seeing his new photos he has hanging throughout the office.
The visit was very good. The office had not gotten my information via online registration, but I think it was due to a staffing issue. The receptionist was very accommodating, working alone under a high volume situation, and she never lost her poise. Overall, we will be returning.
He was very nice and thoroughly explained everything to me and made sure I understood. He seemed like he really wanted to help, which is much appreciated
Good visit, I didn't realize we would do allergy testing for the first visit and wasn't prepared to be there as long as we were, if you're taking kids take snacks and some toys or something for them to do while you wait on test results in the room.
He was very thorough and was very nice. I could also hear him talking to other patients and he was just as nice to them and knew most of them by first name.
It went well and the doctor was very open with opinions and options. He is go to get my daughter well. thank you doctor.
Dr. Sikora and his staff are as good as it gets!!! I was very leery about getting tested for allergies and being put on a treatment plan, but Dr. Sikora made me feel at ease and very welcome, from Latoya the Office Manager who took care of my billing, to Tiffany who administered the allergy tests, to B.J. who told me to ask for her by name whenever I want to get shots at the Woodbridge Office that is most convenient for me, to Dr. Sikora, who was very thorough, knowledgeable and extremely friendly. For anyone in the Northern VA area who needs to see an allergist, I would recommend Dr. Sikora and his staff, even if you have to drive further than you normally would to see a doctor. The treatment you will get from Dr. Sikora and his staff will be well worth making the trip!!
Awesome and professional services.
It went great, everyone was very helpful and Dr. Sikora was great and able to answer all of our questions.
I took my 12 year old daughter to see Dr. Sikora for her asthma and allergies. He is attentive, personable, and i felt at ease with his recommendations for my daughter. The new plan Dr. Sikora has recommended is working wonderfully. There is no more wheezing and coughing. I'm so glad I found Dr. Sikora.
It was my first appointment with Dr. Sikola. He was referred by a co-worker. He seems very thorough and "listens" to what you say.
Dr. Sikora was amazing. He actually listened and cared about what my concerns were with my daughter. It was nice to have a doctor with a good bedside manner. He smiled, laughed and joked and that felt great. He came up with a great plan for my daughter to fight her allergies and asthma: short term and long term. Overall I was satisfied and throughly empressed with Dr. Sikora. He will be my family's Allergist for years to come.
First time visit to the his office. Pleasantly surprised. The staff was friendly and easy to get along with. Doctor Sikora himself was an excellent doctor. Will definitely be following up with him for my medical needs from here out. Glad to find such an engaging personality.
It was a great experience and the doctor and staff were kind, patient and empathetic.
My visit with Dr Sikora was so great I had to leave a review. Dr Sikora genuinely not only cares about his patients, but is super personable and provided just the right information
