Never had a better experience going to the doctor. Went to Dr. Slaughter and Sinus & Snoring Specialists for a deviated septum and chronic sinusitis. My entire experience was fast and simple from the initial visit, to surgery and through recovery. I was blown away about how quick and painless the surgery was (literally under an hour). Recovery was nothing more than an afternoon with a nose bleed and 3 weeks of taking medication (absolutely not inconvenienced by it). Now I am breathing and sleeping better than I have in a very long time. I highly recommend Dr. Slaughter and the ENTIRE, amazing team at Sinus & Snoring Specialists to anyone who is having any issues with their nose and/or sinuses. I am even going to continue to visit them to treat my allergies.
Dr. Slaughter is one of the kindest, most forthcoming doctors I’ve ever worked with. He has helped me changed my life for the better with his service and he even went so far as to open this practice so that he could do MORE for his patients. If you suffer from bad snoring issues, poor sleep quality, chronic congestion/allergies, then Dr. Slaughter is the hero you’ve been waiting for. 10/10 would shell out co-pay again.
I have suffered from severe sleep apnea for a number of years and have been using CPAP therapy for almost 2 years. Dr. Slaughter performed both balloon sinuplasty and turbinate reduction procedures on me in his office, since the CT scan his staff performed indicated that I had 95% blockage in both nasal passages. The procedures took just 16 minutes, and the only minor inconvenience was being limited to a soft food diet for the first week, due to the work he performed on my pallete. I am now sleeping better without CPAP than I had been while using CPAP before the procedures.
I’m an avid cyclist, but I’ve always been forced to breath through my mouth while riding. Within a week of having the procedure, I was back on the bike and completed a 60 mile ride while breathing completely through my nose for the first time ever! This past weekend, I completed my first MS 150 ride from Houston to Austin, just over 4 weeks after having the procedures. Breathing through my nose was effortless on the entire ride, and significantly improved my performance.
Dr. Slaughter’s staff is quite possibly the most professional medical organization I’ve ever dealt with. His office uses state-of-the-art technology to both diagnose and present medical information to the patients, and I am absolutely thrilled with the results of his work. I sincerely thank Dr. Slaughter for dramatically improving my quality of life!
My life changed dramatically a week ago today. That’s when I had balloon sinuplasty with turbinate reduction. In other words a ballon was used to non-surgically dilate the sinus tracts. Then my uvula was reduced and my soft palate was injected so it stiffens. All of this has eliminated snoring completely. In the coming weeks my sleep apnea should be completely gone. This a great nights sleep with complete rest. My wife all ready loves me no longer bringing the roof down. So soon will my fishing and hunting buddies. I hope I still get my own room? This is a game changer, stop wearing a cpap, mouth devices or just living with this deadly condition. Go see Dr Slaughter. In and out in an hour with minimal pain. I can finally breathe through my nose again!!!!!
I am SO EXCITED about my results from my balloon sinuplasty and turbinate reduction, that I am writing reviews and sharing pics in every place I can! Dr. Slaughter was the THIRD ENT/Otolaryngologist I went to. I am a singer, music educator and speaker, and had been through 7 years of hell with my singing voice and my speaking was also being plagued with problems. Speaking and singing is a HUGE part of my job, so my voice is very important to me. I actually lost out on lots of money when my vocal problems started because the quality of my singing voice had gone downhill so much that I lost my job as the female lead at my church, I lost a singing gig with a cover band, and I would get extremely sick with acute bronchitis, laryngitis, and severe allergy problems 6 months out of the year. Not to mention I had snoring problems and was not getting quality sleep! NONE of the other doctors offered me any solutions. After going to Dr. Slaughter last month, I FINALLY got answers to all of my problems. He took the time to LISTEN to me and I saw with my own eyes WHY I was having so many problems singing with the x-ray of my sinuses. He explained everything from the X-ray so well. You can tell he is ALSO a master teacher. He felt heard and understood, and INFORMED! I had the balloon sinuplasty and turbinate reduction and it was the BEST SURGERY E.V.E.R! My recovery was SUPER FREAKY FAST! I CAN BREATHE, I can sing with no obstructions, people are coming up to me and asking me why my voice soundS clearer and stronger, and my snoring has stopped! I wake up REFRESHED EVERY MORNING!!! And BOY is my husband happy that I’m not raising the roof with my snoring anymore! LOL!! Next I start allergy drop therapy with “Sinus and Snoring Specialists!” Now I can sing with confidence, and I am not afraid to throw in a little singing at some upcoming conferences where I’m booked to speak! YES! I AM SO GRATEFUL! IF YOU’RE A SINGER WITH PROBLEMS, VISIT THIS MAN! You won’t regret it!
I wanted to tell you that your office as the cleanest, nicest doctors office I have ever been in. I was so impressed! And all of the staff there were so nice and friendly. Please let Dr. Slaughter know how much we appreciate not just the care and treatment, but the professionalism and warmth your office shows
