I was in acute pain in my shoulder Dr. Slater spent more than ample time with me to explain, treat and diagnosis my injury and made my course of treatment clear and did so with an amazing sense of humor! I was in tears prior to arrival the pain was over the top but Dr. Slater and his humor made it bearable. I am not an easy patient I ask a tremendous amount of questions and am skeptical of doctors but he gets the A++. Thank you Dr. Slater.

Awful experience. This doctor is clearly not interested in treating anyone who doesn't require surgery. Not only did he rush through a very cursory examination, he didn't ask any questions and misdiagnosed me as having a sprain. I have since see another Orthopedic Surgeon who identified the broken bone and set my hand in a cast. To add insult to injury I paid a $55 copay for this poor treatment. His bedside manner is simply appalling. Very, very disappointing. Don't use him for anything.

We felt like we were bothering him. Rude and talked down to us.and not helpful at all. A complete waste of time.

There are plenty of good orthopedists in the Sacramento area. Don't waste your time with this one. Rude, doesn't seem to care, and has an ego that is out of control. Went to another Dr. and was very happy with that overall experience.

I have been to Dr Slater twice. The first time was to correct what another surgeon had created. He answered all of my questions and concerns. When I went back for the 2nd time was just as helpful addressing the problem and his staff was outstanding.

Dr Slater is fantastic. A bit of a dry bedside manor but very attentive to patient and their needs or concerns

I was looking forward to this visit to give me the explaination of my injury and direction of what was needed for my shoulder seperation injury. His bedside manners was terrible. I wanted and needed some answers but he didn't listen or even tried to explain my injury and how to deal with such an injury. I left his office completely dissatified with the treatment and the lack of answers. I felt it was a waste of time and money.
