Mooresville, NC |
He takes pleasure in being condescending. I thought others were exaggerating when they described his rude behavior until I personally experienced it.
Tampa, FL |
Needed a simple refill for eczema medicine. Actually still had one refill available but the prescription expired. Went thru the CVS online method for them to contact the doctor's office to get authorization. They denied it. Call to find out why, could not get anyone from Dr. Slaughter's office on the phone. There voicemail says allow 24-48 hours for response!? Wow... guess being uncomfortable for that amount of time is my problem. Went to see this Doctor's reviews and I completely understand why
in Charlotte, NC |
I had a great experience !! He was attentive an very thorough with his examination.. He quickly came up with a plan of treatment . i was impressed with his bedside manor and his ability to listen an hear my thoughts. By the time i left i felt happy an cery satisfied that i had been treated so incredibly well. I will absolutely be telling my friends who they should see if they are seeking a dermatologist!!

For some one that has been going to the dermatologist for most of my teen and adult life I left Dr. Slaughter's office feeling confident about the treatment plan he prescribed. He also makes sure you can get the medications he prescribes at affordable prices. I would definitely recommend Dr. Slaughter.

I have battling cystic acne for more than 10 years and within the last 6 month Dr. Slaughter has found the right methods to improve my skin. Into my second month of Treatment and we are seeing drastic changes little to no acne. And my acne scaring is clearing up quickly. I'm very satisfied with Dr. Slaughters expertise!
charlotte, nc |
I went to Dr. Slaughter about a rash on my leg that had been there off and on for several months. He seemed to rush through the exam. He prescribed a lotion that has cleared up the problem, though. On my follow-up, he did not even look at how the biopsy wound was healing.
Matthews, NC |
Waited over an hour because Dr. Slaughter's surgery took longer than expected. He spent 2 minutes with me and he wasnt even listening to what I was saying. And he wasnt even apologetic for my wait. Paid a $40 copay for what?? Believe what ever negative review he has, I learned the hard way!!!
Bellevue, WA |
Dr. Slaughter and his team in Charlottle are very knowledgable and personable. I would recommend Dr. Slaughter!

Great dermatology group! Easy access, personable staff, and most important, a skilled physician in Dr. Slaughter. He is very easy to talk to , and explains your condition in easy to understand terms. He has my complete confidence in his clinical knowledge.
in Charlotte, NC |
Dr. Slaughter is an excellent doctor. I switched dermatologists because I did not like my first dermatologist and now I am more then happy with him! He is very personal and engaging. He did an excellent job at thoroughly explaining my situation and I really feel great with my results so far. He really cares for his patients and I have confidence that he will get me through my skin problems!
in charlotte, nc |
Dr Slaughter is a very engaging and easygoing professional. He displayed extensive knowledge of my concerns and explained them in understandable terms. What I especially appreciate is his quick response to and follow through on a serious condition with myself. In addition l was happy with the other doctor he referred me to.Together they formed a great team to help me resolve or I should say manage my health condition.
Richmond, VA |
I just had an appointment with Dr. Slaughter. He was thorough and excellent in communicating his observations and recommendations. He was also super personable. I am very pleased all around.
Charlotte, NC |
Misdiagnosed twice with eczema when a second opinion with another dermatologist determined the source of my itching. My first visit barely included a close look at my skin, let alone a thorough examination and skin scrapings that were done by the second dermatologist. Prescribed medication made my skin worse. Second visit resulted in an unnecessary skin biopsy that yielded no results. Basically spent over $900 between the doctor's visits and prescription medications. Waste of time and money
in Charlotte, NC |
I have been a patient of Dr. Slaughter for almost 2 years now. I highly recommend him and have already referred several friends to Dr. Slaughter. He spends time to calm my fears when needed with respect to pre-cancerous skin issues and treats me with respect. In his care and guidance, I am confident I can manage my skin issues proactively. His staff is also very accommodating especially with last minute schedule changes. A++ in my book and I have visited many derms in the area! A+
Charlotte, NC |
Dr. Slaughter was excellent. He took the time to explain all of the skin changes that I was seeing and what I should be concerned with and what I should not be. I completely trusted his judgment. He was very thorough and personable.

I went to 2 other doctors to cure my skin condition before finding dr. Slaughter. He was able to diagnose and prescribe medications that made me feel like myself again. Not only was he kind and helpful he also gives back to the community. He is an outstanding dermatologist and I would highly recommend!

Dr. Slaughter is an outstanding doctor, and I have been his patient for 10 years. He has kept me free of skin cancer, and is very friendly and personable.
in Clover, SC |
I was a former patient and now a returning patient. Dr. Slaughter removed a precancerous lesion with no issues. I saw him recently after going to another dermatologist who looked at me from six feet away and prescribed some cream and sent me on. I have had skin issues from sun damage and Dr slaughter listens to me, examines me and treats me accordingly. I would highly recommend him.
in Charlotte, NC |
I started seeing Dr Slaughter for routine skin checks due to childhood sun exposure. He has been treating me for about 5 plus years. Last year I had a biopsy for possible skin cancer. After a positive biopsy I had MOHs surgery to remove SCC. I have been very pleased with his level of expertise as well as his honesty and kindness in explaining all aspects of any treatment I've received.
in Charlotte, NC |
Dr. Slaughter was very friendly, concerned and accommodating. He gave me several options and is assisting in attacking the source of my acne from all areas. His staff was very friendly and my experience was very positive.

Dr. Slaughter is very knowledgable and diagnosed my case instantly. No wasted extra time and I was able to start my day sooner. I see lots of negative reviews, but I think they all had bad days and took it out the wrong we. I would strongly recommend him!
in Rock Hill |
He solved my son's eczema, on the first visit. He's very direct with his answers, which is what I liked about Dr. Slaughter.
in Charlotte, NC |
He is an excellent dermatologist. I have been to four other dermatologis the in the area and he was the first to give me a medication that works really well for my skin condition. He is very thorough and a great listener. I would definitely recommend him to friends and family.
in Charlotte, NC |
I read the reviews and it seems as if the people have had a different experience than me. Dr. Slaughter was an excellent Doctor. Gave me free medication when I was down and out. Cleared my problem. His staff were great. The EHR they had gave me a list of what I had. We need a Doctor like him to stay in Charlotte and don't let the negative people run off great professionals in our community. I have heard about him for years as GREAT! He really is the best Derm in Town.
in Charlotte, NC |
Woke up with my face swollen & a bad rash on my checks, ears & eyelids. Dr. Slaughter was the only doctor open for a same day appt. I told him i woke up in the middle of the night w/ a rash burning & itching. It was the second time w/in a week. He insisted it was sunburn even though I hadn't been in the sun. He didn't check my vitals, inspect the rash or view other areas for spreading. He insisted i wear sunscreen.. I know the dif. b/w sunburn & a patchy rash. Time & money down the drain.
in Charlotte NC |
My 1st visit with him was very unpleasant, he came off to me as Rude and condescending, I was very frustrated with him, as well as my Doctor for referring me there.This Doc said that people come to him with skin problems, and he prescribes medicine to help. I asked him the if he could tell me why my skin would get hives in different areas @ different times and disappear within 24 hrs. he didn't give me an answer, he just suggested some cream to apply for 2 weeks. A waste of my time and money
in Charlotte, NC |
I am a new patient and was shocked on how bad Dr Slaughter was, honestly the rudest Dr. I have ever seen. Hi answers to questions sounded unintelligent and he said a side effect to a drug was that it could like hurt the fetus or something. He then threw in my face all of his experience and tried to name drop about working with the Hornets. SERIOUSLY-do NOT see this Dr, what a huge waste of time and just a bad experience overall.

We were very shocked at his extremely incompetent, unprofessional and unpleasant attitude. He was very condescending, rude, flippant and admittedly ignorant of basic and important diagnostic, prognostic and treatment communication. The many reviews here confirmed we weren't the only ones who had the worst experience ever. At the very least, he needs significant training in doctor patient communication. We've informed our primary care doctor who removed him from their referral list.
in Charlotte, NC |
This was my 1st visit. Usually when you are a new patient the doc is more attentive and concerned. He came off slightly condescending, and unsympathetic-Had the audacity to tell me I was OLD b/c I wasn't in my 20's - I'm in my early 40's. When I asked him about a side effect of a medication, he went on some tangent about how the world trusts Google search more than real doctors. Not my cup of tea.
in Charlotte, NC |
Dr. Slaughter is awesome. On-time appointments and the staff is friendly. Had several moles removed via laser. Minimal discomfort and no scarring.
in Charlotte, NC |
My experience with Dr Gary Slaughter was good. The nurses and medical assistants were exceptional. I have had 2 visits to the office in a 2 week period. I would recommend them to friends and family.
I actually read a bad review and disregarded it because I wanted to give this Doctor the chance of meeting him. His receptionist, Jennifer didn't provide any customer service. She was completely rude and did not want to answer the questions I had regarding scheduling a visit. Her tone and brief I informative answers were very unprofessional. This is not someone I would like to have answer phones at my place of business. She should definitely reconsider the way she speaks to clients.
in Charlotte, NC |
He has a great personality and solved more than just the problem I went to see him for. Definitely would recommend him to anyone I know. Very helpful and kind :)
Very rude and condescending. Terrible doctor. Laughed at my condition and offered no help.

Totally unprofessional rude condescending and unknowlegeable
in Charlotte, NC |
I went to Dr. Slaughter for itchy skin which is one of his areas of expertise according to this site. I got 2 skin biopsies. I was a little puzzled from the results and wanted to consult with him to get further clarification. Well, I guess that was just too much for him to do and he told me that whatever skin issues I have (still unknown) are out of his scope of understanding, so he dropped me as a patient. Basically, do not go to him unless you have a skin condition he can make money from!!
