Dr. Slayden took care of me when I was admitted to St. Luke's South from the E.R. in August 2018. It was due to his brilliant care that I recovered, Not only did he fully explain my problem and supervised all care that I received in the hospital but also personally called Dr. Cummings and Interventional Radiology at the Plaza just for another opinion. Today I am well and it is all thanks to his caring attitude and professionalism.
