Had balloon sinuplasty, deviated septum and other things done to my nose. What I thought would be weeks of recovery ended up being about 2-3 days. Zero visible negative impact after surgery, only needed one pain pill after surgery (pain was gone within 6 hours), and flew overseas less than a week after the surgery without issue. This guy and his staff rocks.

Husband had deviated septum, balloon sinuplasty, roof of mouth injection to harden the palette for stop snoring & an very slight chance they would trim the uvula. Results: Septum-good, Sinuplasty no difference, injection was horrendous! Created massive ulcer. Couldn’t eat, talk or swallow called Dr said it normal go on line & order some liquid pain relief. Lastly removed the uvula completely ! Now left w/choking&dry throat constantly. Do NOT recommend this Dr because they only care about #’s & $

Zero chance I will recommend him, my worst experience with a doctor. After being told my snoring/sleep apnea could be cured, I had 3 procedures done which did not work. The office was not interested that I was still having problems. I did another sleep study which I had to pay for ($80), nurse agreed I was still having sleep disruptions. She did not suggest a follow up visit unless I wanted to spend more money on dental appliances, otherwise we were done. Once they got paid, my care stopped.

I believe also, that Dr Slaughter runs everyone through the same three procedures, he bragged 11 a day, After over $10,000 to my insurance, six months later I snore again, it was the only problem I had. He tried to convince me I had all these sinus problems, Also, the ten minute procedure he said was easy and acted liked nothing, I was unable to eat and was in serious pain for over a week and then had horrible blisters in my mouth that had to be medicated for an additional 3 weeks,

This man is a horrible doctor. I stupidly trusted him and after 3 procedures my health is worse. He is incredibly pompous and patronizing. Also worth noting, this office sends you emails asking you to review them. If you are honest and tell them you aren't happy, they will send you harassing mail. We since interviewed four ENT's that all shook their head and asked why I chose this practice in the first place. Their reputation in the medical community and amongst vestibular disease support groups

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.

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.

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.
