      Dr. Sloss has been my cardiac Dr. For over 20 years! He is professional, yet personable and never forgets that your a person with pain, fears and feelings. Having open heart surgery is a major life changing experience and with him by my side, I felt safe, assured and in competent hands. DW

      Dr Sloss is a very caring and wonderful doctor. When I had my surgery, one of the nurses told me that if she ever had heart problems, she would go to Dr. Sloss. I thought that was the highest compliment to be paid to him. I have been going to Dr. Sloss for about 10 years and I won't change.
