Excellent surgeon but having to wait 2-3 hours past scheduled appointment time EVERY time is rude and unprofessional. He’s popular true, but office manager needs to take control of schedule and stop over booking

The best Dr. ever. Very thoughtful and always takes time to talk to you,even though I know how busy he is. Would not go to anybody else unless I had to. Sometimes you do have to wait a longtime to see him. But I know he has emergencys that happen, and well worth the wait.

Dr. Slater is the very best in my opinion. He has replaced a knee for me & will do the surgery in the future on my other knee. He is competent, thorough & kind. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone seeking an orthopedic surgeon.
