She is a great doctor, but if you have an appointment, you should be seen before the walk ins. That’s terrible at this location. 11:30 to 1pm Visit

I thought Dr. Slater was wonderful. But the the technicians in the office made me wait in the examining room for more than 15 minutes waiting to do an EKG test. Other than that, it was great, liked I could havebloodwork I needed without having to go to a lab.

My mom & I liked her so much, we've both decided to not continue with our Drs & stay with Dr Slater. Warm, caring, spent time explaining everything to my 81 year old mom. Best of all, she went out ofher way to make sure we got in to see a Hand Specialist immediately. Great experience.

Dr.Slater was a very caring doctor with a great personality. She went over my history and gave me my blood work and ekg right there in the office. She even did my referral and gave me a list of specialists Icould go to. I am very happy I had chosen her to be my primary care doctor. Her office staff was very friendly and efficient!
