Qualifications and Experience
I am a board-certified psychiatrist providing care for individuals struggling with anxiety and ADHD. I employ an integrative approach in providing psychiatric care, blending complementary and alternative therapies that have scientific evidence establishing their safety and efficacy with psychotropic medications and psychotherapy to target one's symptoms. Therapies I utilize include various forms of well-studied breathing, nutrients, herbs, yoga, meditation, and mindfulness techniques. This approach provides those who are unable to tolerate psychotropic medications, or are fearful of starting them because of their significant side effect profiles, with treatments proven effective for their conditions. My goal is to reduce your distress with the minimal amount of medications needed or, if possible, none at all.

Dr slaughter is a rarity in the field if psychiatry ..he is kind, caring, intelligent, naturopathic and above all offers 45 minute sessions as opposed to 15 min med script writing sessions..he is wonderful!!
Excellent, as always
Fue buena , no fue mas alla de lo ke esperaba pero lo suficientemente buena
I would recommend this doctor for someone experiencing minor to semi-intense anxiety disorders or depression, or simply a kind face to talk to. However, if you fall into the pitfalls of an extreme crisis, depth or despair, or suicidal thoughts, I would find someone who specializes in more severe cases and is more readily reached by telephone, simply for your own safety.
I have been a patient of Dr. Slaughter's for several years and in my opinion you could not find a better psychiatrist. He's incredibly learned in his field and open and collaborative in his approach to treatment, and his recommendations often include both Eastern & Western influence. Further, he really listens to the patient, makes himself available if you need something, and you get the sense he genuinely cares. I have referred friends to him and they seem to share my sentiment. He is all-around just a wonderful doctor. I feel quite fortunate to be in his care.
Twice now Dr. Slaughter has worked with me to overcome two major back-to-back life stressors that felt almost impossible to overcome alone. Both times he has talked me through my worries and anxieties, without being overly-prescriptive in offering his own personal advice. Rather, he works collaboratively with me at a pace I'm comfortable with, and it is a breeze to get in touch with his secretary via text. He's the paragon of what modern psychiatry should be.
Great first experience and will continue to see Dr. Slaughter.
I found the Doctor very knowledgable and helpful. I woudl highly recommend him.
I've been seeing him for 2 years and he is an excellent Dr. in every way.
See him. Do it. Fix your life. 10 years of depression - gone. Not taking meds anymore. Meditation, supplements, exercise, diet, and so on. He really is amazing.
Excellent every time.
Not a good visit. This doctor had a misleading website. It said he treated things he doesn't. He's probably for people that don't fit the criteria of any mental illness, but have basic anxiety.
Highly recommend Dr. Slaughter! He is great!
Dr. Slaughter is superb. Hard to imagine any better.
Pretends to care. better than nothing. also too expensive

Outstanding. Couldn't ask for more.
Per usual Dr Slaughter was encouraging, empathic and supportive in our session. I feel as if he truly listens and makes every effort to understand where I'm coming from. I find that he approaches treatment from the perspective of our joint collaboration, and that he is truly interested in my feedback and in making sure that I am comfortable with the plan that we design. I really like his style. He is a pleasure to work with.
Dr. Slaughter is first-rate. Very smart and dedicated. A big help and a pleasure.
Dr. Slaughter has earned my trust, and I certainly am glad I found him. He provides a rare breadth of expertise ranging from standard treatments of psychotherapy and medication to include, also, "alternative and complementary" treatments. He ranges from standard medication to yoga, from herbs and vitamins to breathing techniques, from practical counseling to diet and exercise promotion. Stepping in to work with me, Dr. Slaughter has been thorough, collaborative, and honest. I already am experiencing very nice improvements in a short time. With a gentle manner, a perceptive mind, and a first-rate medical education behind him, Dr. Slaughter is an excellent resource for problem-solving and well-being.
He's very knowledgeable, understanding, and a fabulous doctor. I highly recommend.
I have found Dr. Slaughter to be very thorough, pragmatic, honest, experienced, and knowledgable about a wide range of approaches to solving problems and improving well-being. He cares about the whole person. And I like his collaborative style.
