What People Say About Dr. Steven Slikkers, MD

Very unprofessional. Had a surgery done by Dr Slikkers. Very expensive surgery. He did not do his job as he said that he would. I was reassured and told it would be done right. I have been back 4-5 times in the last year with concerns. He now wants to send me to a plastic surgeon to take care of his mess. I’m still in pain and he doesn’t seem to care. Just tries to justify everything. Won’t give me names of anyone else to speak with about this. I do not recommend him. Stay away!!!!

I love Dr Slikkers. He did my gastric sleeve and it was a big success. I haven't had any problems and losing weight. He is very professional, yet down to earth. My visit after surgery I was so excited to be losing weight he gave me a big hug and said go shopping, what a good feeling and he was a blessing in my life. Thank you,Dr. Slikkers!

I was very impressed with Dr. Slikkers and his entire staff. They were all very warm and gave me nothing but respect. Dr. Slikkers made me feel relaxed about my surgery (thyroidectomy). He explained everything so I understood what to expect and answered all my questions. I went to my follow-up appointment and was very happy to learn that my incision was healing well, even better than they expected. I highly recommend Dr. Slikkers and would want him for any future surgeries.

Dr Slikkers has been the biggest blessing ever in my life. After loosing a kidney to cancer and a infection setting in, it was the most traumatic thing I've even been through. On top of that I got a huge stomach hernia that had to be repaired. Everything came out exactly the way Dr Slikkers said it would. He took the fears away that I had , and believe me I had many. I encourage all who needs surgery to go see him! He is the very best! Also Munson hospital of TC is also a fabulous hospital!
