"I have had a mixed experience with him. The best experience was after I had radiation I went to him for a colonoscopy at a young age. Even though nothing was visible he did biopsies" and found a condition called microscopic colitis. It has been trial and error since to figure out what works.

"He's very good at what he does. He makes you feel like he's talking to you on a one on one basis. He knows who I am and who my wife is. I consider him an excellent doctor." He'll go out of his way to explain things in
's terms. He'll answer any questions and he's very good at what he does. He has a very good sense of humor as well.

The doctor himself was his assistant are not very well at communicating. My problem has been going on for over a month. They have loss my lab results they said seven business days they would contact me with results. However I still have not received them. They never called me or sent me anything. I have had to keep calling them and asking for my results. I'm still waiting after it has been almost a month. Their phone system isn't very efficient , they don't call back and have left me on hold for long time. I don't recommend them to anyone.

They are the best in Maryland for most doctors. Scheduling appointments can take a few months if you're not someone who goes there all the time. The staff is polite. The nephrology, gastroenterology, urology, and physical therapy departments are all great. However, I didn't particulary care for the neurological department there.

I have been seeing him for 8 years. He is very knowledgeable and has a great bedside manner. He is very in depth about finding what the problem is. He is very prompt. He has a friendly staff and a nice office. It is a bit difficult to schedule because he is a busy doctor. The wait time is about 1 month.

DOCTOR SPENT ABOUT ONE MINUTE WITH ME BEFORE PROCEDURE.
AFTER PROCEDURE, KEPT ME WAITING NEARLY ONE HOUR, ONLY TO SPEND ANOTHER ONE MINUTE DISCUSSION WITH ME. SHE THEN REALIZED SHE DIDN'T HAVE A PHOTO OF THE POLYP SHE REMOVED, STATED SHE WOULD PRINT A PHOTO, THEN FAILED TO RETURN AFTER ANOTHER 20 MINUTES.
I DIDN'T NEED HAND HOLDING, BUT EXPECTED THE PROFESSIONAL COURTESY OF AN ENGAGING DISCUSSION OF HER FINDINGS, MY CONCERNS, AND ANY RECOMMENDATIONS APPLICABLE TO MY CONDITION.

Very well. Have been going to Slazak since 2006. Excellent Dr., compassionate. Office staff needs to figure out a better system of taking calls. Get message most times. They do call back.

was friendly and professional, explaining the basics well in an office visit. He even made a joke or two to put me at ease. This was my second colonoscopy, the first done by a different doctor. Dr.

provided less pre-procedure information than the first, and some of the discomfort I experienced was only explained by remembering what the first doctor had said years earlier. However, my biggest issue with the procedure is not with Dr.

himself, but with the place in which it was conducted. He uses Bridgeport Hospital. I found the staff incredibly rude. I needed a little information before departing, and asked a man behind the counter. I later found out that he was one of the physicians. I was appalled at his rudeness, so much so that I have decided never again to deal with the hospital. In addition, I am a clergyman, so I visit the hospital regularly, to see my parishioners. I now tell anybody and everybody who will listen to avoid Bridgeport Hospital, as it's attitude towards the public, that is, it's customers, leaves much to be desired. I will take my money elsewher in the future.
