They want there bill paid even though they diagnosed me with a pulled muscle and it turned out to be stage 3 cancer. They dont rush to help you, they could care less. They just want their money. Go to one of the local reservations and ask for a shaman your better off. Oh yah if you are lucky enough to get in and see a doctor the 30 seconds they spend with you ensures you get quality care.

Sidney Health Center's billing department is inept! Expect many and extreme over charges, along with their practice of going out of your insurance network leaving you with thousands of dollars in bills you wouldn't have had to pay if they operated correctly!
