    Dr. Sloan truly put my mind at ease. I had been given a much more grim diagnosis/prognosis prior to seeing Dr. Sloan. He assured me that my case wasn't nearly as complicated as I had been told.

      I recommend this doctor and his office to everyone that needs this kind of doctor. I don't think I would be alive today had I not had him recommended by Dr. Myers he knew him and said that he would use him for his own family then I knew I had found the right place and after going to five doctors prior I absolutely found the best doctor anywhere, I could never have been so lucky or fortunate he is just spectacular as well as everyone in his office and his assistant Donna! I wish you had excellent on here because I would put super excellent not just very good and I have recommended him to other people that have thyroid problems !

      Dr. Sloane was my surgeon last week for thyroid surgery. He and his staff were amazing and eased all my worries. I had a very smooth and successful surgery. I went on Nov. 28 for my checkup after surgery. They were all very knowledgeable and did a fantastic job explaining their findings. I would definitely recommend anyone with thyroid issues to visit this facility.
