Dr Slaughter is a very kind doctor, with an excellent practice. She’s a great care provider, and the office itself is very well run, which is so refreshing compared to the prior psychiatrist I saw for a long time. I highly recommend her.

Staff takes time with each patient. Other places have been to they are more interested in getting the appointment over than listening to concerns.

Actually, Dr. Slaughter's CNP is irresponsible and inadequate. Failure to supervise said CNP is my major issue.

Dr. Slaughter listens to my concerns, and will make excellent recommendations. I love how she doesn't judge, she is completely there to help. she knows I like to have input in my therapy, so when she wants to add a new medication, we discussed it--I especially like how she goes over the pros and cons of each medication. I'm so thrilled I discovered Dr. Slaughter! I can sing her praises all day.

Had two psychiatrists before Dr. Slaughter over a 11 year period and neither were able to correctly diagnose my issues nor get me on the correct medication. A few months after my initial visit with Slaughter. I started to notice positive changes and at the one year mark, I felt that I was feeling and doing better than I had for over a decade.

Her approach to finding a solution is very kind and caring. She was very available for me while we were doing medication changes. Her new office is very inviting and she is easy to talk to. She even helped me find coupons for my medications when I didn't have insurance coverage. I have recommended others to her and they have also had very good experiences with Dr Laura. Her assistant that handles calls and the front desk is also extremely kind and considerate of patient privacy.
