Dr. Slivka and his associates have always been perfect care providers. This was the first time in 15 years that I had to wait a significant amount of time in the waiting room and the patient room, and then the bloodwork room.

Dr. Slivka was on time and attentive.

Good experience. This was my first visit to this provider since my liver transplant in march of 1995. The provider seems to have thoroughly reviewed my transplant case, and found out about the reasons for the symptoms resulting from the eventual scar tissues that have resulted from the billiary anastomoses to the small bowels. This was remarkable to connect the symptoms after 23 years and the eventual narrowing of the bile duct and the intestinal scar tissues.

The entire experience was great, the attention given by the personnel and the doctors was amazing and they were able to identify the cause of my problem in just 2 days; I've been through several tests overseas for the last two years with no root cause identified but Dr Slivka was able to identify the root cause in 2 days.

Dr.Slivka was always thorough and very easy tounderstand when explaining health issues. He wasalways very calming and caring when he spoke to me about my injury. He is definitely by far one of the best Dr's I've seen and seems like a genuinely caring person.

Dr. Slivka has a very friendly and pleasant demeanor.

Because of severe weather we arrived 2 hours past the original appointment time and was seen as soon as I arrived. We travel from Altoona for my appointment.
