Dr. Sledge is a very personable and thorough diagnostition / surgeon. I have visited his office on 2 occasions, and both times he was very pleasant, thorough, and listened to what I had to say. He provided practical and sound advice and didn't jump to surgical options unnecessarily. On this most recent visit he was 15 minutes EARLY for the appointment.

Dr. Sledge repaired a torn rotator cuff for me six years ago. Dr. Sledge and his staff took excellent care of me; he procedure went extremely well and my recovery was very easy. I recently needed the same procedure performed on my other shoulder and I went to see Dr. Sledge without any hesitation. Again, I received outstanding care and my recovery from this procedure was even easier than my first. Dr. Sledge and his staff receive my highest recommendation, as well as, my sincerest gratitude.

Excellent providers are very hard to come by and I want everyone to know that there are excellent providers out there!! I have been a patient of Dr. Scott Sledge and Ashley Brooks since 2013.It took me a very long time to write this review, life happens… The first time I experienced “frozen shoulder” (I never heard of it), one of my colleagues introduced me to Dr. Sledge’s office. Unfortunately, now my left shoulder has the same symptoms and I went back to Dr. Sledge. The office staff is a

Dr Sledge took his time with me and didn't make me feel rushed when I was explaining my reason for the visit. Very personable and kind. He came highly recommended and glad to report he lived up to the hype.

Dr. Sledge has a well organized and smooth operating clinic. All staff have been very pleasant via phone and in person. I have not waited more than 5 minutes in the waiting room or in his office. Each time I see Dr Sledge he is smiling and upbeat, his good mood is contagious. My husband was impressed when Dr Sledge came out to let him know my surgery went very well. The communication with the office has been outstanding by phone, e-mail or in person. Great experience all the way around.
in San Antonio, TX |
Dr Sledge and his staff were very welcoming and made me feel important. Dr Sledge spent a very good amount of time getting to know me (first visit). I would highly recommend.

Dr. Sledge repaired both of my rotator cuff issues on both arms. I have had no problem with either one and one of them was done in 2011. He has great bed side manner and is informative with out speaking down to you. His staff is very helpful and clearly goes through the documentation with you. I cannot recommend him enough.
San Antonio, TX |
Dr. Sledge and staff are wonderful! Little to no wait time. Dr. Sledge explained everything in great detail. Surgery wasn't recommended - injection & PT was enough. His PA, Ashley Book, was also a joy to work with. Excellent staff - they are obviously treated well by Dr. Sledge. I love their punctuality, without making you feel rushed. I would recommend anyone with shoulder issues to see this wonderful team!
in Seguin, TX |
Dr. Scott helped me with my pain, by explaining what was causing it. His PA was very king and sympathetic to my pain and also helped explain where the pain was coming from
in Spring Branch, TX |
I couldn't have made a better choice by going with Dr. Scott Sledge. He and his staff were awesome. And Ashley Book, his PA was very patient with questions I had and both never rushed to finish talking with me and explaining what was going on and what to expect post surgery. Without a doubt I recommend Dr. Sledge with any shoulder surgery someone is having. His practice is top notch!

Best in San Antonio. Friendly, experienced, clear and precise. Both MD and his PA are caring and comforting.

My experience with Dr. Sledge and his staff is one of the best I've had with a physician in a long time! Really appreciated the time and expertise he devoted to my case, and look forward to a lasting relationship. I can't recommend him enough.
in Helotes, TX |
I have had surgery performed by Dr. Sledge on one shoulder, and treatment on the other. I hold Dr. Sledge in the highest esteem. His P.A. {Ashley} is also wonderful. The office is managed better than any doctor's office I have ever visited - so the staff there is obviously superior as well. I have recommended Dr. Sledge to fellow law enforcement officers (physically active & prone to shoulder injuries). Those treated, and having undergone surgery in some cases, have always thanked me.
in San Antonio, TX |
Very caring bedside manner; truly concerned about your health; very thorough exam, staff is very friendly and helpful.

Dr. Sledge is a great physician. He listens to you as a patient and takes the time to explain what is causing your shoulder pain and what the next step is in your treatment plan. He never appears rushed and takes his time with your visit. He is an excellent physician and I would highly recommend him to family and friends. Great office staff.

I was referred by a coworker to see Dr. Sledge for my shoulder pain. As he had already had two (2) successful surgeries by him and boy am I glad I listened. Dr. Sledge is great! You feel like you are talking to a friend that cares. He listens to all of your problems. Ashley is the best shot giver in San Antonio. I have now had 4 shots over the course of 2 1/2 years and for something so scary, she makes it so easy. I am doing so much better - I am at about 95% recovered. See him!

My Podiatrist recommended Dr. Sledge to me. Dr.Sledge was kind, gentle, engaging and thorough with diagnosis, surgery & recovery for a rotator cuff tear. I was able to schedule surgery quickly as I was in pain and now am nearly well after 3 months. I would definitely recommend Dr. Sledge.
in Cibolo, TX |
After having shoulder pain for several weeks, I was referred to Dr. Sledge. It was easy to schedule, staff was friendly and efficient. Dr. Sledge is friendly, personable and was easy to talk to, we felt comfortable in his care. He explained my diagnosis and treatment recommendation. His PA Ashely Brooks is excellent, she gave me an injection and my shoulder is better after only a day. I would highly recommend Dr. Sledge and staff.
in San Antonio, TX |
I've seen Dr. Sledge and his team several times for problems with both shoulders, and they are all outstanding clinicians. They are knowledgeable, caring, professional, and take very good care of you. I would highly recommend him and his team for anything having to do with shoulder problems.
in San Antonio, TX |
Dr. Sledge is professional yet warm and friendly. He takes his time with each patient and explains everything thoroughly. His PA and the rest of the staff are equally as caring and supportive. His surgical skills are spot on. With his strict rehab plan you can be in great shape in 12 weeks.

Dr. Sledge is very personable & professional. Same for all staff members I have encountered. Also---love the short wait time once arriving for an appointment!!!
in San Antonio, TX |
Dr Sledge is a very professional and knowledgable surgeon. He has performed two surgeries for me and two for my spouse. I definitely recommend him for anyone having shoulder pain.
in Boerne, TX |
Dr. Sledge was outstanding as was his assistant Ashley Book. Never have I been so well taken care of by such caring and kind people in my life. I know many people who have had rotator cuff surgery and none have reported their experience to be as good as mine was. I highly recommend him and his team.
in San Antonio, TX |
I had enough pain when I laid down to go to sleep and given that I had already had my right shoulder surgery last year I was hoping the pain was caused by a spur in my neck. I have had a spur in my neck removed in a short surgery, in and out. I explained to Dr. Sledge my lack of sleep situation and he looked at me and said sorry to burst your bubble it's your shoulder. Surgery #2! This shoulder was worse. Pain only 3 days and the recovery was faster! His PA Ashley Book is the BEST also!
in San Antonio, TX |
Dr Sledge was on time. Provided me with answers to all my questions. I am and RN and was very impressed with his approach to my care
in San Antonio, TX |
My experience was amazing!!. I experienced a full and rapid recovery after rotator cuff surgery as compared to many shoulder patients that I have encountered. I only encountered 3 patients who had similar wonderful results as mine, and all three had Dr. Sledge as their doctor!!!! Dr. Sledge's surgical skill is incredible, and his bedside manor is also wonderful. I have been highly and enthusiastically recommending Dr. Sledge to anyone with shoulder pain. - Steve Campbell, O.D.
