    How was your appointment with Dr. Slater?

    Nov 23, 2022
    I liked him right off. He was right to the point and I could see he was intelligent and professional. My son has a wrist tear injury from a slip and fall at work. My son is deaf and Dr. Slater was patient and kind with him plus giving me ample time to interpret for my son. His plan to fix my son's wrist was right on target and I have no doubt he will do a very good repair. My son and I both felt comfortable and relieved that his outcome with surgery will be a positive one. I give him 4 stars and would give him 5 if he lived in Redding(though not his fault) as we have to drive 2 1/2 hrs to see him but we feel it is worth it now. We also liked his office staff and they even gave us driving directions for our return home . Thank you Dr. Slater and we look forward to your professional help. John Arkeder and his Mom Janice.
