ENT Specialist who is in business strictly for the money, and not in any way for your health concerns. I have heard other ENT Dr.'s in town laugh about this guy, and when I went to one, and said I had been to Slaughter, he said "Let me guess, you had a balloon sinuplasty"... Stay FAR away from this guy, he just wants your money, then will refuse to talk to you if you have any complications at all. His assistant is even worse, she is cold and the perfect match for this quack.

The best bed side nurses, and fast answering office staff. I couldn't have picked a better Dr & team, to handle my 2 year old tonsillectomy!!
in Austin, TX |
I'm a doctor myself and after meeting him, I referred some patients to him. Allergies & other issues he has treated are very common in Austin. All the patients referred were happy with their results and I went to see him myself recently. He quickly & accurately diagnosed the problems and recommended a procedure to fix it. I went for the procedure and he was wrong about it: result was better and took less time than expected. I will now see if I can get my dad to go see him for the same thing.
We are so happy to hear that you are happy and healthy! Thank you for sharing your experience on Health grades! We appreciated the trust you have in Dr. Slaughter to send your family and patients as well. We look forward to taking care of your dad!

Dr Slaughter is very knowledgeable, personable, and does especially well with making my young son feel at ease. Dr Slaughter is the only doctor my son looks forward to visiting. If you want outpatient surgeries that will improve your sinus problems, then he is your guy. He has lots of experience, and I trust him. My son had ear tubes in and out with Dr. Slaughter. He corrected my deviated septum and performed balloon sinuplasty at another visit. Overall, I've been very satisfied.
