Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Slaughter "I believe each individual has the responsibility to take control of their health care. With the direction of their physician and education from their physician the patient will have the highest rate of satisfaction with results of that care. In treating people I want to help them decrease the symptom they presented with. Therefore, I fashion each surgical procedure toward that aspiration."
