Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Sladek was kind, unhurried and clearly made me feel confident in his skills as an orthopedist. I’m thrilled I happened to find him through Zocdoc and was able to get an appointment super quickly! Great doctor, great app!
My son was referred to Dr. Sladek by the ER for follow up on broken wrist. The office staff was friendly and efficient. My son was seen right away by X-ray and a very short wait to see the doctor. Dr. Sladek recommended surgery and took time to answer all the questions we had. He added my son on to an already full schedule so that he would not have to wait an extra day in pain. It is hard to rate a doctor based on one visit, but our experience with him at the initial appointment was a 5.
Very professional. Spent time to show me my options.
Dr. Sladek was great and everyone at the clinic was very friendly and helpful.
Once you entere there, you will see a note that mention 15 mins late may ask for re schedule but funny thing I waitted for more than an hour to talk with doctor though I reached there 30 mins before my appointment. And hardly 9 mins visit of doctor, i dont know is he done with my exam or want me to observe for other weeks. Good thing: I observed most of the facilities(like xrays, physical therapy) are in itself.
The staff was Friendly and helpful. It’s nice to see at a Doctor’s office
Very friendly and approachable. Truly enjoyed my visit as much as one can for a doctor's appointment.
It was ok. I had another doc in the office that I meshed with better. He didn't really seem Concerned about the pain was having for a long time, or he didn't asked about injuries. He looked at the xrays, told me gymnasts have injuries, barely looked at me. Did a few tests and left. It takes a long time for people to gear up to see a doctor with old injuries. He made me feel, by his actions and non engagement, that I was wasting his time.
Good listener; thoughtful insight to problem. I appreciated his first approach to the problem -- a small treatment before ordering any extra tests.
