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.

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.

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

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.

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

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

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.

Dr. Slivka and his assistant were phenomenal! They were professional, caring, curious and courteous. They listened to me as I am most familiar with my body. They respected my opinion and considered my opinion and my input toward my care. I would highly recommend both to anyone with similar concerns.

Everyone is very helpful at umpc. Thats why I travel 90mins. To come see the doctors in Pittsburgh. I true them with my care.


Dr Slivka gets an A++++

best dr ever
