"Dr. Slocum is incredible! I had an eye emergency, and he was called to the ER to help me on a Saturday morning. I was in incredible pain and distress due to a viral eye issue. He got me on the fast track to recovery. His office got in touch with me for a prompt follow up. The office was clean. The staff was professional. And Dr. Slocum is a true life saver. I could not be more grateful to him. I will be a loyal patient to West County Ophthalmology from here out. I know I can count on them for excellent care in ordinary and extraordinary circumstances."
