- Was the first Dr to listen about my weakness on my left side and found out it was serious. The other Drs in years past would say it was because I am right side dominant, that is why you are weaker on your left side. It just kept getting worst over the years till I couldn’t walk. I am walking again and getting my balance back, that another Dr said it was my ears causing my balance problem. I will recommend Dr. S to everyone I know.
- Wonderful bedside manner Very easy to talk with. So far I have had great care from 4 of your MD’s.
- Dr. Sielatycki is the dr. I’ve been looking for to help me on my back
