DR. Slivka's associates and staff are always very helpful and courteous. I and my wife are very satisfied to have him as my specialist for my gastro problems.

excellent care

Very friendly and explained everything very well

I have never had a bad experience at UPMC

Dr. Slivka was providing a second opinion for dr.from Blair Gastro, Altoona. He discovered wrong test was given in Altoona and pathologist made very wrong diagnosis. I'd say this was very good on Dr. Slicks part to correct.

I waited over 2 months and traveled 5 hours each way from Virginia for this appointment. When Dr. Slivka first reviewed my records and determined that I should see him as opposed to another doctor, I thought he did so based on my symptoms and his ability to help me. During the appointment I was given no reason for my condition and was told that there was nothing functionally wrong with me and to just treat the symptoms. I left feeling very let down and wondered why I had made the long trip.

Dr.Slivka and his Fellow were top notch in every respect. They were obviously expert in their field, very thorough and explained my condition in easy to understand terms. I will follow their recommendations for continued treatment without hesitation. You are fortunate to have such highly qualified professionals in hour institution.

Dr. Slivka is one of the best Drs ever. Not just because of his knowledge and expertise, but because he LISTENS and is very caring. Every doctor should be just like Dr. Slivka.

The temp. in the Urology kidney clinic in Kaufmann Bldg was extremely warm, and the wait to be seen was over 1 hour, but time spent with Dr. Jackman was great. He explained things very well and the consultation was very productive. It was my 1st appoint. with him. The total wait time to see Dr. Adam Slivka at Digestive Disorder Center was less than 10 min. He always listens to everything I have to say & answers all my questions. He gets to the problem quickly and goes over all the information I need to know. Everything went very well at this appointment. I was very pleased with both of the physicians I saw.

Dr. Slifka and his Fellow were caring and complete in their diagnosis and explanation about care and follow-up. I would highly recommend them.

Dr. Slivka was on time and attentive.

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.

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.

my overall experience was exceptional. I have great confidence in Dr Slivka

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.

Dr. Slivka has a very friendly and pleasant demeanor.

it was good

Did not examine me, just asked a few general questions.

It was a good follow up visit. Good doctor-patient rapport.

Dr. Slivka has shown a lot of care trying to figure out my issues. He listens carefully and does not rush you.

Dr. Slivka and all of his staff are the best medical office I have ever been to. I have been coming to this office for approximately 15 years and they have always been punctual, courteous, jovial and open-minded. And after decades of various medical issues, I have been to a lot of medical offices. Keep up the great thing you have going on. Thanks.

I was very impressed with Dr. Slivka's personal care, the amount of time he spent talking with me, and the fact that he clearly communicated a plan based on how I felt in the upcoming months.

waited 90 minutes pastappt to see doctor and over and hour to see fellow. this was after waiting 3 months to get an appointment

Dr. Slivka is always attentive to my concerns or questions. I always look forward to seeing him.

Dr Slivka saved me from having a whipple operation, which they were going to do in Florida

I traveled from out of state to see Dr Slivka given UPMCs and the Dr's expertise with pancreatitis. I was very happy with the time spent listening to my medical history, answering all of my questions, and providing recommendations on next steps.

Experience was great

Keep up the great service

Any calls to the office were requests for earlier [soonest] appointments. Dr Slivka is highly sought after...for good reason. His Resident [Mohannad Dugam] was high quality

Always good

Dr. Slivka is a fantastic physician. Very knowledgeable and willing to help. I have and will continue to recommend him to all my family and friend. He is simply OUTSTANDING

Extremely impressed with my care!!!

Dr Slivka listens well. He looks you in the eye when he talks to you. This seems like a small thing but it makes a big difference. He allowed me to take part in decisions of my care. He answered all my questions.

Dr Slavic - great bedside manner

Very happy with office visit

I have been treated with the upmost care and concern.

Dr. Slivka is a specialist I trust completely.

Dr. Slivka is attentive and pro-active.

I would recommend Dr. Adam Slivka to anyone needing his type of care. He is my favorite doctor and is staff are the greatest. They all always go above and beyond.

I was 15 minutes early and yet I only waited 7 minutes. I was taken in early and immediately seen. Not only a great Doctor, but also an accomplished support staff.

Dr. Slifko's staff has been wonderfully sensitive to my needs, prompt, and helpful to my overall health

Everyone was very nice and patient. Fast but never felt rushed.

I have been seeing Dr. Slivka for 22 yrs and have a personal relationship with him. He is a tremendous asset to UPMC, and one of the few doctors I trust with my life!

Dr.Slivka has a knowledge of my medical history, cares about my health and provides excellent care.

I have never had a bad experience at Dr. Slivka's office. From the moment I arrive, Fay (at the front desk) gets me signed in and started, the girls get my vitals, and I see Dr. Slivka. He spends as much time as I need - never rushes me. Then I'm off to see Mark to get my labs done (if needed) and Mark is so good at drawing my blood - you can't even feel it and there's not a spot left on my arm when he's done!

I continue to be impressed by the overall quality of care I receive when I visit the digestive disorder clinic. The receptionist is very helpful and friendly. I was taken back to be seen within minutes of arriving at the office. The nurses are very professional and friendly and, without a doubt, Dr. Slivka and his associate provide a level of care that far exceeds any care that I have received anywhere.

Dr. Slivka and his staff are both kind and professional. I enjoy seeing everyone there.n

the doctor was so nice and easy to talk. he is someone that I would highly recommend. he always comes across very caring and down to earth.

Dr. Slivka is truly the best gastroenterologist I have ever encountered. He is knowledgeable and thorough. He takes the time necessary to explain/discuss test results and the path forward in my treatment. As busy as he is, he always remembers patients' names and other health issues that one might have. I have NEVER had a bad experience with Adam Slivka, even when he has recommended an ERCP sphincerotomy. As unpleasant and risky as this test can be, I know that I am in the best possible hands.

Dr. slivka's team is outstanding nurses, assistants are excellant, I've been with Dr. slivka for 19 years and his girls are above and beyond call to duty, how many dr's. or nurses call a patient at home and say, "how are you"

Nothing bad to say.

DR. Slivka & Nicole took extra time with me, so that I was aware of what to do for my future appt.

I very much appreciate the time the provider took to explain clinical information and answer my questions.
