I had my right hip replaced on March 4. I had my left hip replaced in Oct. 2019. I am doing very well. Walking without assistance: this time after about two weeks. Dr. Slover is very professional and is open to any questions you may have. His staff is very responsive and knowledgeable. Jane, one of his assistants, is as professional and was very helpful in making things happen. The PAs and Nurse Assistants at his office were always kind and helpful. I had the anterior approach and stayed overnight. The nursing staff at NYU Orthopedic is caring and responsive. I highly recommend Dr. Slover, (Due to pandemic, I had my first two post-op appointments via telehealth. My x rays were done locally)

Dr. Slover is nothing but professional, and a skilled surgeon. I had my left knee replaced in 2015, and my right hip in January 2020. Both replacements are great. I play Pickleball and am able to continue my walking regimen. In addition, he's a personable guy.

My procedure went smoothly, and the doctor was readily available whenever I had a question. The staff working with him, from the scheduled to the nurse practitioner, was also terrific.

I had my right hip replacement in November. Dr Slover and his team are great from the first day. They help me with some forms issues they where very patient. After surgery the force team have good exercise videos for you to help towards your recovery. Also chat text on how everything is going with your recovery. This is good thing because there where days, I didn't fell good. Also Dr. Slover team have a on line nurse to help with any issues love this save a trip to the office. Still recovering and doing better. I would recommend Dr. Slover to anyone having hip surgery.

Dr. Slover and his team are truly wonderful. The care and attention that I received before, during and after my hip replacement made me confident I was in the right hands. It eased any concerns I might have had. I hope not to be back but would certainly use Dr. Slover again if my other hip needs to be replaced.

Dr. Slover is the greatest!!! I cannot believe the relief from pain from arthritis right after surgery, albeit there was surgical pain which was minor in comparison. He and his entire staff are just superstars!!!

Dr. Slover allowed me to meet my goal, to walk again pain free! He is attentive to my issues. Great bedside manners! Honest and kind! Office and surgical team was wonderful and comforting. Bottom line, my hip replacement turned out very very well! This is only after 3 months, sure that further improvement will come!

Had the best service provided from beginning to end of my right knee replacement. Dr. Slover is the Best that's why I made sure he did my right knee after having my left knee replacement 5 or 6 yrs ago done by Dr. Slover and had no problems then or now. Bless him and love his Force Group follow up service on computer.

Don't look any further if you need a new hip. Dr. Slover is the best and so is his staff. Besides being a talented surgeon (you should see the x-ray of my new hip!) he is kind and understanding.

Dr Slover is a stand up straight shooter. Did and excellent job surgically, eliminated my pain. He answered all my questions and explained exactly what he was doing. His staff was very professional, friendly and very thorough, with a very short waiting time. The pre-surgery was very helpful as well. I would recommend him in a heartbeat.
