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.
