Ratings for Dr. John Slanina
Dr Slanina is from the “old school” which when it comes the practice of medicine, is a great attribute. He is thorough, spends the necessary time to provide explanations and examinations and suggests proper follow-up. My previous family doctor retired making it necessary to find another. In my humble opinion I could not have found anyone better. This review is genuine, not from a friend or relative, but IS from a grateful patient who is relieved-to-have-found a fine doctor. I will be happy to verify. His office is located in a mall (top floor), housing other doctors. It is a walk-in clinic, but at the moment I believe he is taking new patients. Parking is underground and heated. For the sake of interest, this mall contains a Winners, Walmart, Dollarama, a food court and other shops.
Dr. Slanina is very knowledgeable and he takes a lot of courses to keep himself updated. My peeve would be that he carries his cellphone in his pocket and instead of being on silent it rings while we are in the room talking! And then he leaves my apt time to go talk on his cellphone . Very rude I think. He has amazing staff that is always at the ready for what he needs, polite, kind and friendly. I heard a rumour he is going to retire. My family would misss him so I hope he would not leave Lamont for a couple more years.
Dr. Slanina has always been very helpful to me. Whenever I'm ill or not feeling well, he always finds the solution. He cares about his patients and always give me full attention. I never feel rushed when I go see him. We are lucky to have him in our small town. His staff is very good and helpful as well.
I agree with the positive comments below. Dr Slanina has always been very kind, patient and caring when dealing with my elderly parents who think he is wonderful. We need more like him in the medical profession that show compassion, empathy and support.
It sounds like the previous 4 comments were made by the same person with a grudge! Even the wording sounds the same. Dr. Slanina has been my elderly parents doctor for the last 2-4 years. My only regret is that my parents hadn't switched over to him years ago. He is knowledgeable, kind, spends time with both of them answering their concerns and questions and we have been very happy with their medical care. He has been a tremendous advocate for both of my parents! What's best is they come away from an appointment with great confidence in their care. I have only positive things to say about Dr. Slanina. I know little about his staff so will comment as fairly neutral.
