I would not recommend and will not be going back to this office for the following reasons: -There was a printer in the way of the stirrups so the doctor had to position her head and body oddly to complete mypap. -I was bleeding after the pap. She offered me no toilette and no pad. Something ever single other gyno I've been to has offered -The nurse that checked me in went through the very sensitive patient questions coldly and ignorantly. She did not know of a fairly common gynecologically procedure I had done so said "I will have to Google this." Then proceeded to ask "abortion ever?" -They called me with my results but still have not posted them to my portal The only redeeming quality of this office was the front desk personnel were all very lovely. I I went to another gyno shortly after and they were truly a breath of fresh air compared to this place overall.

This was my first appointment with Dr. Sikka and it will not be my last! She was very professional, thorough and quick. I was in and out of my appointment in no time, but I also did not feel rushed. Herbedside manner is great, as is the demeanor of her office staff as a whole, which is important for any healthcare provider, but especially for those providing care for sensitive systems, like reproductive health, of the body.

The doctor had trouble listening to my narrative and kept getting key details incorrect or out of chronology. There were also stretches of time when I was left alone and didn't know what was happening and whoever was attending me hadno idea where I was supposed to go or whether the appointment was over. I felt very pressured to take on various treatments and medications, though they were vague about benefits and side effects or what my options were. When the doctor left, I noticed that my paperwork was left all over the room.

The initial consultation with her LPN was more inviting then with Dr. Silks. Perhaps being asked several times if I have children was more of her concerns then my initial visit. I just didn't connect with her. It happens.

le examen general fue tan rapido que ni siquiera noto los quistes que tengo en mis senos, definitivamente despues de esperar mas de media hora para que me atendiera, esperaba que se tomara un poco mas de tiempo para revisarme. Nocreo que regrese a ese consultorio, seguire buscando una ginecologa con la que me sienta mejor atendida

Dr. Sikka was very professional. That said, it was over an hour wait, which is not acceptable. The secretary is also a bit unfriendly. The nurses were great though! Also, the office is not nearly as nice as the website makesit appear. Nevertheless, I went for the doctor so I will go back.

My 1st visit with Dr. Sikka was for a 2nd opinion and despite my being honest with her about this being my 2nd opinion, she was thorough and explained everything in detail. The difference between her and the 1st doc Isaw was night and day. Dr. Sikka's gentleness, kindness and overall bedside manner won me over. I subsequently ended up having surgery and could not have been more pleased with how everything turned out. I highly recommend Dr. Sikka. No doubt you will be in capable and caring hands. I did not find out until after my surgery that she has been voted by Washingtonian Doctors Top 10 doctors for 2015 & 2016. I happened upon the article written about her while waiting, at a doctor's office, to be called back for an appointment for one of my children. I cannot say enough good things about Dr.Sikka and her staff Tiffany, one of her nurse's, has the best bedside manner I've encountered in recent times. The whole office has been exceptional with the multiple forms I've had to have them fill out for my return to work. My recovery has been amazing and I believe it is because of how well my surgery went. Thank you Dr. Sikka and her staff!

Dr. Sikka was amazing! I went in for a contraceptive consultation. I came to the office with some idea of what I wanted, and not only was she extremely supportive of the options I had in mind, she also provided mewith extremely helpful information that helped me make a decision that I was happy with. Further, she and all of the office's staff were extremely efficient without sacrificing a welcoming and comfortable experience. I cannot recommend her enough!

Front office was okay, could've been more welcoming. Medical assistant- who took my medical information/vitals was great, very polite and informative. It's a very Small office space they share it with a nephrology specialist. Wait time washorrible waited more then an hour to be seen. Also there's a 50 dollar fee for No-show or reschedules. Make sure you do cancel within 24hr just FYI.
