Stillwater, OK |
Dr. Slater was very informative about my knee replacement surgery. I felt comfortable about his competency in doing this surgery. He was highly recommended by friends. Great job of pain management and follow up. I had a hematoma develop several weeks after surgery but did not do as well getting information about what to do. I believe my home care PT should have been more aggressive about getting me an appointment to check on this situation. I would recommend Dr. Slater to family and friends.

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.

Dr Slater has replaced both of my hips. While appointment times are often delayed (sometimes over an hour), he never is rushed when he does get to me for the appointment. He is concerned about my overall welfare as well as the functioning of my new joints. I am an Orthopedic Advanced Practice Nurse and practice in the Kansas City area. I would choose Dr Slater over most of those others I have worked with in my career.

I was there today for my first knee replacement consult. I was there 30 min. in advance. At my appt. time they announced he was running an hour behind. I didn't see him for 2 1/2 hours after I arrived and was it ever worth the wait!! I've never had a surgeon take so much time with me, helping me to stay off surgery as long as I can, as I'm only 60. He went over all preexisting conditions, and my other doctors. He is a man of faith. It is WORTH THE WAIT! The other ortho docs say he's the best!!

There is a reason Dr. Slater is considered a "doctor's doctor." He is thorough, very meticulous at detail in surgery, is extremely concerned with the patient being infection-free and personable. Dr. Slater performed my revision (5th knee surgery) from an accident experienced in high school. He helped bring my knee back into alignment. I am very pleased with the results.

I would not recommend Dr. Slater. You are asked to arrive 20 -30 minutes before your appointment time and wait; 45 minutes after your appointment time is good, 2 hours is not uncommon. As often as not you still only see the PA. When I complained Dr. Slater said he had to take care of telephone emergencies. At my one year check up. I was still in pain with my entire leg still swollen. Dr. Slater said it was text book perfect
