Dr. Slivka and his associates are by far the absolute best doctors I have ever seen! No one in over five years has been able to figure out what has been causing my pain and sickness but Dr. Slivka figured it out in two office visits. He is the most kind and caring specialist I have ever seen and has the most compassionate bedside manner. I absolutely love him and enjoy coming to see him! He is a wonderful man who cares about his patients and shows respect and goes above and beyond to help. He remembers you and doesn't treat you like a number.
