Dr. Slover is an excellent surgeon. I would highly recommend him without reservation. He is always available for questions and is very prompt In his replies. He is served by an excellent and professional staff. The follow up appointments are always on time. I was extremely happy with his services. (And although my hip surgery was only 3 months ago I just finished a 5 mile walk!!)

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.

Dr. Slover listens to the patient and fully answers any concerns. He explains the operation and, especially, the aftercare and importance of therapy and the exercises shown in Force Therapeutics.

Dr. Slover treated me for my second hip replacement. My first was quite a few years ago, and was extremely successful. So Dr. Slover had a high bar to pass. He did so amazingly. I love him! My pre-replacement work-up with Dr. Slover and all his staff was amazingly efficient and speedy. The surgery itself was a breeze, my hospital stay was terrific, and I was home in two days!! Post-operative in-home therapy was great, and the Force app has been a blessing...especially the exercise videos. I am 3-1/2 months out from surgery, and after many years in pain, am starting to feel like my old self. I would recommend hip replacement surgery to anyone, especially if they are apprehensive about the surgery itself. There is no reason to live in pain. And once you come to the decision to have the surgery, Dr. Slover is the best! I just love this guy!
