I really appreciated the time Dr. Slater Took in Gathering information and conducting a thorough interview. He also took the time to explain things and answer questions. Dr. Epstein was also very patient and also took his time in explaining my pain syndrome and treatments for it. I would highly recommend seeing both of these doctors.
