He has held faculty positions at Harvard Medical School and the University of Washington School of Medicine where he is currently Associate Professor in the Department of Pediatrics and chief of the division of dermatology. His clinical and research interests include atopic dermatitis, vascular tumors of infancy, vitamin D, and pediatric health services. He spends most of his time outside of work playing with his four year old daughter Claire.
Dr Sidbury has that rare combo of compassion, knowledge, humor, and keeping both kids and adults at ease. What a wonderful man and a great Dr!
When my daughter's pediatrician referred us to Dr. Sidbury, I knew we had come to the right place. Not only did he put us at ease immediately--he genuinely cared about my daughter's well being. He eventually referred us to a pediatric ophthalmologist but he made all the initial calls and followed up (as he agreed to do) to make sure we got an appointment right away. All my questions were answered and he personally called back when necessary. Dr. Sidbury truly loves what he does. It was worth the drive (in traffic) to see him!
Dr. Sidbury is great! I went to him with severe atopic dermatitis (among other minor things) and he took my questions and concerns seriously. He was very patient and honest when answering my questions. He went above and beyond when explaining certain conditions to me and was able to make me laugh even when I felt miserable. Thank you Dr. Sidbury!
Our daughter was diagnosed with Linear Scleroderma this summer. We saw Dr Sidbury for a second opinion due to the recommended treatment. He was very compassionate, very thorough, treated us with personal concern and answered our questions completely. Even though I initially was against the recommended treatment, Dr Sidbury was able to explain it to put my mind at ease. He showed the same concern for my daughter that he would for his own child. I am very impressed with him and his staff. I feel blessed that he is caring for our family.
Our daughter was born with a large PWS down the left side of her body. Becoming a Mother for the first time had its challenges but this had its own level of anxiety. We as parents would never, ever want to change her but for the sake of our daughter sanity in a somewhat cruel world (or world with cruel children) we decided to explore our options. Through our pediatrician, we drove the 4 hours to Seattle to meet Dr. Sidbury. Our consultation was wonderful. He made us and our 8 month old (at the time) feel very welcome, at home and involved with the process. He worked with us and our insurance company! I was skeptical of the process and feared that there could be adverse effects. He immediately put my mind at ease and I am so genuinely thankful for that. I know that even though the procedure itself can be emotionally and physically taxing on our little one and us, we will have the desired outcome through Dr. Sidbury. I would highly recommend him and the entire team to anyone. The nurses as well; I have never come across more helpful and genuinely caring nurses!
Along with recommending Dr. Sidbury, I want to thank them all for helping our new little family. Through the nurses and Dr. Sidbury’ s help and care, I feel I can more confidently arm my daughter with self-confidence and the knowledge it will take to help her through her school years to come. Our child is our most precious and prized possession and I wouldn’t her procedures to anyone else!
