De. Sikora is very knowledgeable and thorough. He was able to diagnose the mystery allergy symptoms I've been having and came up with a plan of action to treat them.

I did not receive quality care at all. Knowing this is a specialist, I wanted to have a thorough conversation but I felt completely rushed to get out. I did not even get put in an exam room. The doctor evaluatedme for only 5 minutes in his personal office space. I am very disappointed with the level of unprofessionalism from such a highly-ranked doctor who has lowered his standards of practice.

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. Sikorais 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.

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 andGPS. 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.

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 alwaysthinking 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 .

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 withthe 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.
