About  Visiting St. Joseph Central Texas ENT every other Monday, Dr. Slater is an neurotologist and otologist. What is an Otologist? "OTO" is the Greek word-root for "ear". Therefore, microsurgery of the ear is often called, "Otomicrosurgery" or "Otologic" surgery. Specialists who perform ear surgery are called "Otologists".

NEUROTOLOGISTS are physicians who in addition to their ENT requirements continue their specialized training for an additional year or more in the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the ear. Otolaryngologists, neurotologists and otologists are the physicians who typically treat disorders of the ear (or hearing mechanisms) requiring medical or surgical solutions. Dr. Slater is an active member of the Academy of Otolaryngic Allergy.
