Review of Dr. Slezak


Dr Slezak is not only knowledgeable in his field he is kind and compassionate. He explained my rectal cancer surgery and a year later my non-reversible colostomy surgery and other options. He has been with me every step of my treatment and still follows up routinely. He is a top notch surgeon and has always responded to my questions and concerns. His office staff are excellent and caring.

Review of Dr. Laipply

- |

I was very anxious about having surgery and had met with another specialist prior to finding Dr. Laipply. She was compassionate about my situation and straight forward about what needed done to fix it. My whole experience in dealing with her and her staff has been positive. Dr. Laipply is a skilled caring Dr. I will be telling my OB/GYN about her so she can recommend her to others and I will recommend her as well.

Review of Dr. Laipply

- in OH |

Dr. Laipply has completed two of my surgeries along with my husband's surgeries. She is truly "a diamond in the rough" in the medical world. She is not only very caring, compassionate, and knowledgeable, but she always takes her time and always pays attention to all the details. Every time I have met with her takes my thoughts, concerns, questions, and feelings into consideration, so I always feel well taken care of and positive when I leave her office. I highly highly recommend Dr. Liapply.

I've been a patient since I moved to the area in 2004. I absolutely love him and appreciate how he answers my questions no matter what. He is very experienced and knowledgeable.

Review of Dr. Porter

- in Akron, OH |

We request, trust and recommend Dr. Porter for colonoscopies and surgeries. He was my husband's surgeon for his emergency colon surgery, Hartman procedure and reversal. Dr. Porter may not agree, but I say he saved my husband's life. Outstanding work, competent and confident. He tells it like it is, respects your questions & concerns, and helps you keep things in perspective.

Review of Dr. Slezak

- in Akron, oh |

I had hemrhiods surgery with in 2012 and I regret ever doing that. It was painful for months and developed into internal problem where I have bleeding and discharge up to this day. If you value your health DO NOT go to this doctor. He will trick you into doing the procedure then leave you out to suffer. Lawer will not even help you because you will not be permanently disabled Slezak never even came to me before or after the procedure but he said he is the one who performed it.
