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.

I found the office to be very busy. After the doctor performed one procedure and some medication to which I had a bad reaction, I was turned over to the nurse practitioner who tried to convince me to have another procedure. After consulting with my primary care physician, I decided to change to a different gastroenterologist.

gives a lot of information. He educates you. He is kind and has a fabulous staff. He will call you at night with your results. They get right back to you, they get you in if you need to get in, and they schedule with the hospital. They are easy to get to.
