Dr. Slade was selected by his peers for both “Best Doctors” and “Best Doctors in America”
I would like to highlight that during my surgery, they had someone hold my hand the entire time. This is just a small detail that really sets them apart, and shows their attention to detail and the patient experience. I personally worked with Dr. Slade, and he is the most charismatic and thoughtful doctor I have ever met. His focus on safety and attention to detail will make you feel taken care of from the moment he steps in the room.
Dr. Slade and his team restored my vision almost completely with double lens replacement. They are very patient with questions and very attentive throughout the process, including very conscientious after care. Recommend 100%

His staff welcomed me and made sure that my questions were answered and told me what I could expect. During my exam Dr. Slade gave me his personal advice on the options that were available and that personal touch gave me confidence things would go well. Both my wife and daughter have had LASIK at Slade and Baker and also experienced the life changing difference. If you are looking for the best Dr. Slade and his team are it."
