From Our Patients

I just got my stitches out from my carpal tunnel procedure. Everything from start to finish went perfectly. Almost 0 pain. The doctor, the PA, and the whole staff did their job perfectly with kindness and a smile. I am very glad I got this procedure done at doctor Slade’s office..
Update: It’s two years later and doing great.My carpal tunnel pain completely gone. Very satisfied

Tim C.

Very grateful for Dr. Jager’s entire staff. They all are genuine in sharing gifted talents in words and deeds. Especially viewing how safety was achieved when allowing a senior client independents and dignity using a walker. Great Surgeon, wonderful staff.

Dr. Slade performed carpal tunnel surgery on my hands (right in October, left in December) this year (2015) and he did a fantastic job. You can’t even see the scar on my right hand and it’s working much better than before the surgery. My left hand is healing beautifully. I would recommend Dr. Slade to anyone needing hand surgery of any kind. He is a hand surgeon genius!!!
