What People Say About Dr. James Slater, DO
Reply
I would definitely recommend him to family and friends. He has taken great care of my daughter since she was an infant and she is now 3. He is a great surgeon, He has put tubes in my daughters ear a couple times now and always let us know what was going on before and after. He has done a turbin/septoplasty on me and I had wonderful results. Never had an issue with scheduling appointment that needed to be taken in right away. The office really tries to accommodate urgent requests.
