What People Say About Dr. Mark Slidell, MD
Reply
Dr Slidell was kind and friendly taking time to sit down and explain my options. We decided on surgical intervention for my 22 month old son. Dr. Slidell did an inguinal hernia repair. We met with Dr. Slidell the morning of surgery. He again answered all of our questions and eased our mind. When surgery finished Dr Slidell sat down with my husband and I explained the procedure and how he fixed the hernia and explained ecovery time. We felt our son was in the best surgical hands with Dr Slidell
