Ratings for Dr. Paul V. Hyde
Rude and arrogant. He implied that he is more skilled due to his age than others at the hospital I was at. He did not listen to my concerns regarding surgery and I felt bullied into making choices I was not comfortable with. I decided to see a well established surgeon at the same hospital and had a much better time.
Dr Hyde is an amazing surgeon and practitioner. I was diagnosed with breast cancer and weighing the treatment options - all confusing and terrifying. He helped me sort it out and saved me from making drastic choices I would later regret. Imagine a surgeon sparing you from unnecessary surgery! He is as kind and caring as he is brilliant. He's my hero. If you are lucky enough to have Dr Hyde, you are lucky enough!
Referred to Dr. Hyde by my Scripps primary physician to assess a cyst removal in the groin area which requires a skillful surgeon.Already had it removed 3 times by OBGYN's.Had all the tests done by urology specialists and surgeons from Stanford.He right away said, You could have mensis & I don't do that kind of surgery.I recommend you go to...she's a urologist but you need an OBGYN.Asked him for an antibiotic as the cyst was inflamed and infected and painful. He said he doesn't write prescriptions for antibiotics or anything else unless he does surgery on you. Very rude, unprofessional, waste of my time and copay-Very upset I'm going to be charged anything for this visit. If he didn't feel confident removing this cyst, he should have just said so. No one has ever seen this cyst in this particular place but there is no forgiveness for insensitive, arrogant dr.s who deal with real people who have serious health issues.The world will be a better place when this guy retires.
This doctor came highly recommended through his peers. He did my mother surgery when she was diagnosed with breast cancer we interviewed 4 different surgeons. He was the best. He did an excellent job with my mother and he was not a **** like other doctors I had met.
Dr. Hyde had to deliver the unfortunate news that I had breast cancer. I could see in his eyes if he could take it away from me he would have. He is an expert in his field and voted top by his peers for several years running. He performed the skin sparing mastectomy. Two crucial points here for a surgeon -- removing the cancer to obtain clear margins while keeping the skin so that the reconstruction doctor has something good to work with is key to the success of this operation. He did both beautifully. He is a dream doctor and I am so glad I have the privilege to be his patient.
