OLD SCHOOL SERVICE

As one of the first plastic surgeons in Allen, Dr. Slack has been serving the Dallas and Collin Counties since 2001. Originally from the Dallas area, he moved to Allen in 2001 because he liked the idea of being a small town doctor – partly because he wanted to do a variety of procedures and partly because he truly enjoys interacting with people.

“I like that I’m not just a hired guy in an office. I’m part of the community,” he says. That “small town” now has a population over 100,000.” And “the practice has expanded to include McKinney, Frisco, Plano and well beyond, bringing in patients from all across Texas. Even so, Dr. Slack still gives his patients undivided time and attention. He works to build the kind of doctor-patient relationship that is becoming obsolete in today’s economically-driven medical environment.

That means when a patient sees Dr. Slack, before any sort of exam they will be greeted by him in the lobby first. Then they will stop in his office for an in-depth discussion about the patient’s goals and what various procedures can and cannot do to help achieve the desired results.

“They are entrusting their body and health to me, and I don’t take that lightly,” Slack says. He continues the same level of care – focusing on the relationship with the patient – from exam to surgery to post-op check-ups. “Honesty and good communication is key.”
