The chemo waiting room had a care taker who removed her mask to sneeze. No one corrected her.

He couldn't answer any of my questions. He couldn't even tell me where my mom's brain tumors were located. He didn't even have access to the MRI's and wasn't familiar with them. All he seemed to do was sign his name to the chemo. There wasn't a scale to accurately weigh my mother, they kept writing the same weight which was incorrect. The Nurse told me chemo was based on BMI so how was she getting an accurate dose? When I told Dr Slaughter we had to use the fire department to get my mom down the stairs he lectured on how that was a drain on resources and how I didn't have transportation, I did but no ambulance system would carry my mom downstairs. My mom took that to heart and gave up, she died a week after that appointment believing that she was a drain on resources and society, She was a nurse her entire life. How dare you Dr Slaughter, walk out on me three times bc you refused to answer my questions or to find the answers.

At first, we weren't sure what we thought of Dr. Slaughter's bedside manner. But after a few visits, as we got to know him, we felt more comfortable with him. At first we thought appts felt rushed, but we've decided it's just efficient since they have a lot of patients to see. We do always get our questions answered as needed.
