Excellent and Professional Service from Doctor and all Office Staff
in East Meadow NY |
STELLAR SURGEON AND STAFF! My husband and I are supremely grateful to Dr. Slepian, his medical assistants, and secretaries. Each of them is wonderfully compassionate. The office staff is amazingly efficient, friendly, and kind. Dr. Slepian is an outstanding surgeon! You don't feel rushed when speaking with him, and he's very communicative. His skill is phenomenal. My husband has just a thin scar from the hernia repair and no surgical complications. Thank you to the entire medical staff!

He should not be "practicing" on patients. I wonder how he sleeps at night.

I had to have emergency surgery and Dr. Slepian was my Surgeon. He made me extremely comfortable and assured me that the surgery would be a success and not to worry. He also told me that he successfully completed the surgery more times that I can count. He was very professional and showed that he cared. I would trust him again, again, and again.

After performing life-saving surgery on my 86 year old mother in November 2016, Dr. Slepian guided her through an amazing and complete recovery by mid-December. Our family was highly impressed with his skill, vitality, friendliness, and accessibility. Both Dr. Slepian and his staff were, at every step, devoted to providing calming and comprehensive care. Best doctor I've ever met. Thank you so much to the entire crew!

Dr. Slepian saved my life! he was performing a simple appendectomy when he saw something suspicious. It turned out to be a cancerous tumor. Dr. Slepian removed it and I have been cancer free ever since. He is a wonderful caring doctor!! He listened to my concerns and explained everything in detail. He spent a lot of time with me until I was comfortable.

His staff is awesome, great with reminders, flexible working with me and my hours. Dr. Slepian performed two medical procedures on me (in office and in hospital). He was a skilled professional and I feel great now post surgery. He helped eliminate all fears, he helped describe all options, he is easy to talk to - and most importantly his his his passion for his job shows not only through his successful work but through his happy outgoing professional demeanor.

Had a malpractice that let me to end up in the E-room. Dr Slepian perform a colonoscopy on me. From the time I enter the emergency room to the post surgery, he has not only been an exceptional practitioner but also an amazing human being. He truly cared about my recovery and was with me throughout the whole process. During my colonoscopy reversal I experience the same treatment, kindness and caring from him. I have been seen by many Doctors because of many illnesses I have, but never met someone
