Dr. Slezak was very knowledgeable and confident. She helped me with compassion, knowing that my last colonoscopy ended in emergency surgery. She calmly and with great patience explained why my last surgery had gone wrong and was angered by the last Doctor's lack of clear communication in his written documentation. She was clear, concise and explained my records in terms that I could understand. My colonoscopy was stress free and she was gentle, kind and caring. Looking forward to our next ap

Waited 3 months for an appointment, arrived to locked building. Called number and was told that they had called many times. Cell phone number has been the same and never disconnected for over 20 years, home number same and never disconnected for over 20 years, Was told Dr. had to leave town, never notified, wasted my time, took time of f from work, and now I'm told that it will be another 3 months before I can be seen. They offered to put me on a cancellation list (over 50 long)

Felt misinformed thus ill-prepared for my surgery. I was told I could be walking around after a couple days, return to work after a few days, and the numbing injection would save me days of pain, which lasted maybe a day; most intolerable pain of my life. I wish I had started a high fiber diet at least a couple days before the surgery, because going to the bathroom with stitches in your anus feels like passing a chef's knife when you go. Sitz bath and cleansing bottle helped immensely.
Its obvious she really cares about her patients. Listening to the patients who have seen her before while I was in the waiting room, told me she was special. She put me at ease explained my options and took the time to call my wife to explain my situation to her. Thanks Doc!!!
