Beware! Dr. Sloven's go to diagnosis is psychosomatic. After 4 visits we decided we needed a 2nd opinion and went to Iowa City. Diagnosis, peptic ulcer, right meds and she's good as new. Also, if you see a doctor in this clinic and don't feel they're the right one you cannot see someone else in this same clinic. Their policy is you have to verbally state you no longer want this physician to be your child's doctor. You then have to wait 2 years before seeing another DR in this clinic.

Dr sloven was on call on a Sunday when we presented to ER with child who couldn't swallow (no eating or drinking for three days). He came in and saw him, performed a procedure that evening and then another the next morning before he was to be off at 7am. He could have passed us off till the Monday crew but he was there to help and give us answers.

We had 2 visits with Dr. Sloven. Dr. Sloven is playful with kids. His communication with parents regarding the child's symptoms leaves something to be desired. This is the first doctor associated with Unity Point that I experienced who was rude. The little communication he provided to the parents portrayed an image that he did not have the intent of providing the best interest of the child in mind. We will not be returning to Dr. Sloven and will find another specialist.

I loved Doctor Sloven when he was my doctor. He saved my life and was always available when I needed to see a doctor. I have Crohn's Disease and I came into Blank knocking on deaths door after 2 years of being misdiagnosed He finally found it was Crohn's Disease. Towards the end I ended up going to another doctor because I was an adult and getting married and he was a pediatric doctor. I have yet to find a doctor I trust s much as I did him.
