Have you seen Dr. Rodger Sleven?

Utterly dismissive, made multiple degrading comments, highly unprofessional.
Posted on November 2nd, 2013
In my new patient appointment Dr. Sleven strongly implied that I lied about my past medical diagnosis and testing (one of which I had done the previous week), became angry when I offered to get him my medical records confirming what I had told him (he only had the most recent records). He then made his diagnosis and prescribed medication before I could give him even half of my symptoms. When I tried to tell him that I had not yet given him all the information he dismissed the next GI symptom I explained, again implied he did not believe me then ended the appointment. He was dismissive in the extreme and so aggressively confrontational that I cried in the exam room (which only seemed to increase his anger). I left the appointment notably shaken. Furthermore, I discovered at checkout that after being prescribed an entirely new class of medication Dr. Sleven recommended no follow up visit. I have rarely been treated so badly by anyone in my life and NEVER by any sort of professional. While I do not know whether or not Dr. Sleven is a good diagnostician, I do not believe he did his due diligence before making a diagnosis and prescribing medication and I found the interaction to be shockingly inappropriate. I truly hope that nobody else has to endure this sort of treatment by Dr. Sleven. On a positive note I do however recommend the clinic (Just not Dr. Sleven!!!!). The staff was quite kind, helpful and easy to work with and goes the extra mile in correspondence.

Poor doctor-poorest I've ever seen. Does not do many tests. Milkes the insurance. Becomes angery if you want another opinion. I Will never go back.

Fabulous day. The colon-endoscopy spa was very impressive. Checked in at 1 wheeled in around 1:30. Opened my eyes at the clock at 2:10, checked out before 3. Amazing. Smooth. Everyone was so sweet. Dr. Sleven is a Master in his field. Informative, takes the time with questions, answers in an easily understood manner, great sense of humor. (Be careful... he could be wittier than YOU!) I work for a naturopath and he was considerate of my alternative views. I really appreciated that. Afterwards, my hubby & I went to Petes for a frozen coffee (soothing on the throat from the endoscopy-great for the headache from lack of caffiene for 2 days!), then to Lowes to pick up some stuff, now eating chicken soup, a glass of red wine and about to stain my deck chairs! Amazing!RESULTS:My colon is beautiful (YAY!). My lower stomach has some erosion (hence the pain)no ulcer, but I erosion is the beginning of what turns into an ulcer and most likely caused from the years of Aleve/Advil (WARNING FOLKS!) No restrictions in the esophagus, but prone to acid. So, on Prilosec for a month to heal up the erosion and reduce the acid. No more aleve or advil. After a month I go back for a check-in. I can then go off the Prilosec and see how things go. Ill regulate the acid issue with diet restrictions and more natural approaches, which I have great access to through my Naturopath. So, I feel great about the findings and at ease with the whole thing. And Id have to argue, the prep is no big deal. I didnt struggle with that at all. I think this place has the process down to a beautiful, perfected science, so easy on the patient. Oh the anesthesia was heaven. So cool. Id agree with my friend this place is a colon-spa experience if there ever was one.
Dr.Sleven is a wonderful doctor!!
