Dr. Sloan was always clear and detailed in his explanations. The staff and surgical team made the procedure a good experience. I am very pleased with the care I received.

Review for Dr. Sloan

Dr. Sloan and his staff are very friendly and take the time to make sure you are comfortable and well informed. I was at ease from the first time I walked into the office and continue to be after two surgery’s.
