Patient Comments (1)
in Los Angeles, CA |
AVOID. Dr. Slutsky is greedy, angry and negative. I was referred to Dr. Slutsky by another doctor who was unable to follow up with me due to logistical issues. From the very beginning, Dr. Slutsky made it clear to me that he didn't like seeing me because he was not making any money on me since he had not performed my surgery. He was very unhelpful. I wish I had never seen him.
