Dr. David Slivnick was detailed in his explanation about my new concerns with new diagnosis of thrombocytosis. He was late and to family situation and he was extremely apologetic.

January 20, 2020 7:51 AM

Dr. Slivnick is outstanding!!!

January 7, 2020 7:06 AM

Very well!

January 4, 2020 3:57 PM

Dr. is a great dr. - very soft spoken and willing to talk about my condition or talk about questions I might have.

January 3, 2020 10:10 AM

Dr. Slivnick is an excellent doctor. Took the time and answered all questions. Very polite. One of the best!

December 27, 2019 10:04 AM

Dr. Slivnick is a "World Class" provider! If not for him, I'd be dead years ago.

December 27, 2019 10:04 AM

Nurses are the best! However, since being bought by Advocate the atmosphere in the clinic has become very "clinical" and less like a family.

December 17, 2019 11:54 AM


December 14, 2019 5:27 AM

Dr. Slivnick is compassionate yet firm. He explains things well and makes you feel you're in "good hands."

December 13, 2019 8:13 AM

As always excellent! Dr. Slivnick is BY FAR THE BEST DOCTOR I've ever had to care for me.

December 13, 2019 8:13 AM

I answered question #13 NO - BUT, I know why Dr. Slivnick was "ate" because he cares about his patients!! Being "15 minutes late" IS NOT indicative and has no bearing on Dr. Slivnick's ability as a doctor!

December 12, 2019 1:19 PM

I get excellent care from my provider & his care team. What more can I want.

December 12, 2019 1:00 PM

Great doctor - great office & people.

December 7, 2019 7:20 AM

Dr Slivnick is the most wonderful Oncologist I could have ever hoped to visit...nd he has given me the best care I could possibly have during my time seeing him. I am doing really well, and always look forward to my visit to the office. His staff is the best .... He is he best .... and I am alive today because of his care and knowledge.

December 3, 2019 9:19 AM

He's the most caring and concerned person. He made me feel very special and always explained things so I could understand...

November 22, 2019 8:36 AM

Dr. Slivnick is the best! He always makes me feel that he really cares about his patients.

November 18, 2019 11:00 PM

Dr. Slivnick is an excellent, caring, concerned physician. He spends the time each patient needs. I had a stroke in April. He wanted to hear all about it and ordered additional blood work to rule out trouble. I am thankful for his thoroughness.

November 18, 2019 8:34 AM

I've been going to Dr. Slivnick for over 9 years. He and the staff are excellent health care providers and have closely monitored my health.

November 18, 2019 8:34 AM

I have never had a bad experience. The nurses are attentive, the support staff who take my vitals explain what they are doing, lab is very friendly, front desk always has my paperwork ready & Dr. Slivnick is the best.

November 17, 2019 11:00 PM

Dr. Slivnick is truly amazing. My very first visit with him I felt safe that he was going to be the head of my care team. His "bed side manner" is REMARKABLE!

November 17, 2019 11:00 PM

Entire staff is friendly are caring.

November 15, 2019 11:00 PM


November 5, 2019 11:00 PM

Even though my wait was over 15 min. I did not mind the dr. apologized and explained he had to deal with a very ill patient. I would hope if I were very ill he would provide me extra time.

November 5, 2019 11:00 PM

Dr. Slivnick is outstanding and highly recommended.

October 31, 2019 7:00 PM


October 30, 2019 7:00 PM

Very long wait time to see doctor. (Happens on EVERY visit).

October 28, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Slivnick is a gem. I have Factor V Leiden & see him before I have any surgery for a prescription to prevent blood clots. He is kind & caring and takes time to answer my questions.

October 28, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr Slivnick helped me through one of the toughest times of my life, THANK YOU!

October 24, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Slivnick is always thorough in my visits. He genuinely cares about my issues. He has a great personality and is humorous. Dr. Slivnick is a true professional and I am fortunate to have him as my oncologist!

October 21, 2019 7:00 PM


October 21, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Slivnick has been one of the most caring doctors I have ever had during this horrible event that happened to me.

October 20, 2019 7:00 PM

I consider David one the finest doctors I have ever had. Compassion, knowledge, integrity, commitment are the values he lives by and passes in to his patients.

October 20, 2019 7:00 PM

Always helpful and willing to listen.

October 20, 2019 7:00 PM

Excellent experience.

October 15, 2019 7:00 PM

I couldn't ask for a more caring and compassionate doctor. Dr. Slivnick always takes the time needed to explain my medical condition and treatment needs in a way that I can understand so I can make the best, educated decision regarding my health.
