I am sharing this feedback on behalf of my mom, who is Dr. Stidham's patient. My mom had previously seen a different doctor about a liquid-filled cyst on the back of one of her knees. After a painful and unpleasant experience, she never returned to the other office, despite her cyst filling up again after 3 days.
A year later, out of worry that her condition may worsen, she decided to give it another shot with Dr. Stidham, with me accompanying her as a translator. While it was a busy office, he quickly but thoroughly explained to me and my mom what was going on with her knee, what her options for treatment were, and answered our questions, even if I had to translate in between. When it came to draining her cyst, my mom feared that it would be just as painful as last time, but with Dr. Stidham, she didn't even feel a thing. She even had to ask if it was really done because it was so painless. While we're hoping that the cyst does not return, my mom's mind is put at ease knowing that Dr. Stidham is there and willing to help should it come back.
