Finally, his promptness in addressing our concerns is rarely exhibited in today’s society. We are most thankful and pleased to identified as two of his long term patients.

I have been a patient of Dr Sleesman and his office staff for for many (many) years. Note: That is telling of the kind of doctor/man he is if the staff has never changed!!) He, and his team, are exceptional, kind, patient and highly efficient! Dr Sleeseman is always available to listen, has a bed side manor that is laid back yet confident. I can be realistic and admit that no one “enjoys” going to the doctor but I can say with honesty that I say out loud to my family after every visit with Dr Sleeseman, that I absolutely love and feel at ease with my doctor! I doubt I need to mention just how extremely rare that is these days!!! I am grateful - I have and will continue to recommend him!!

Routine health check - from head to toe - submitted blood work , received annual influenza vaccine , sent in request for routine colonoscopy and answered all my questions ! His nurse is the most efficient gal on the earth - never have a sore arm after the vaccine - unlike the pharmacist.

Dr. Sleesman has been our PCP since 1979. He is and has been our go to person for everything medically for my both my wife and me. We would trust his medical judgement over anyone in the the medical field. He is honest, very to the point, very astute, and has always been available to us for any situation that has arisen during our long and continuing association. We cannot begin to express our gratitude to him. All we can say is, "Thank you Dr. Sleesman for being there for us". We do hope that our relationship will continue for many more happy years.

Dr. Sleesman has been our family physician for decades. I first met him when I worked as an RN. He is an excellent diagnostician because he listens, doesn't rush the visit and cares. He is methodical in his treatment plans. He responds very quickly to email and refill requests. He gets back very quickly, usually the same day, to report test results. He knows when to refer to a specialist. I am very lucky to have Dr. Sleesman as my primary care physician.

Dr Sleesman is a wonderful and caring physician. I’ve been seeing him over 25 years for my health care. He also has taken care of my children as adults. He has an easy-going manner, and always has information on questions of health that are my concern. If other doctors haven’t done so, they should take from his knowledge and experience.

I have been a patient of Dr Sleesman for a very long time. He is a very caring Dr and he listens to your concerns. He also has a sense of humor, which I think is critical. Dr Sleesman calls you personally with any results which is a quality long gone with most Doctors today. You never have long wait times in his office. He values your time and treats you with respect. Highly recommend.
