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.

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.
