Doctor Slayton will see you by appointment in his office on your schedule.  For *same day* office urgent care and home visit appointments, please phone the office line to check availability (562) 338-5200.
Otherwise please BOOK YOUR VISIT ONLINE and you'll receive both a text message and e-mail confirming your appointment.
Typical physician services include primary health maintenance, X-rays, labs, EKG, medication management, referrals and wound repair.

Commercial urgent and primary care is often high-speed, impersonal, and with long wait times. I’m a doctor who will listen to your concerns and partner with you into the future.  I’ll likewise get to know you as a friend and neighbor!

The self-pay patient often forgoes necessary medical treatment because of high costs and a non-existent doctor-patient relationship.  I’m working to change that.
