Dr Andrea Sikon is an exceptionally talented physician. She has a rare combination of extraordinary knowledge/intellect and relationship skills.

Reviewed on Nov 27, 2023

The only disappointment was that I thought I would be able to discuss my options sooner after we got the test results in and I had not realized or remembered that someone had already scheduled me for several months later. I also got a voice message that I had been taken off the cancellation wait list, but was not clear about why I had been taken off. By the time I got to see Dr. Sikon again, the medical procedure for testing had changed and I had done a 24 hour urine collection for nothing. Of course I prefer that Dr. Sikon have the best information available, but a blood test at the same time as my other blood draws would have accomplished that.
