Findlay, OH |
The best surgeon I have ever met with. He listened to me and answered every question I had! Took his time and was in no rush at all! Very honest and down to earth. He is very intelligent! I am so happy i found him and cant wait for my surgery!

This man is truly the most gifted surgeon I've ever known. After having endured years of painful medical care, as well as failed surgeries, Dr. Schlenk was able to restore my ability to hold my head up and turn my neck. My admiration for his professionalism is only slightly less than my gratitude. He is kind, soft-spoken and has a genuine caring bedside manner. As a registered nurse with many years experience, I can say this doctor is outstanding. I'm lucky to have him for my physician.

Dr. Schlenk performed my emergency microdiscectemy. He has a great bedside manner and is easy to talk to. He took his time explaining my options and answering my questions. The surgery went very well and I am on my way to a complete recovery. He and his staff are very professional, courteous, and concerned for the patient.
