Why Choose Us?

Our caring and compassionate way

Why Choose Us?

Since the Endocrine System and Kidney control the metabolism of the entire body, Dr. Sloan and his team treat your whole body in a caring and compassionate way. Dr. Sloan’s expertise in multiple specialties means that he will not be narrowly focused, and he understands how your medical issues and treatment will affect your entire body. Because of this, you may not have to see other specialists reducing your health care costs, visits, and preventing confusion and communication errors that may adversely affect your health.

Disorders of the metabolic system are the main cause of atherosclerosis, heart, and kidney disease. Appropriate treatment of the metabolic system can prevent and treat atherosclerosis, congestive heart failure, and kidney disease. This is referred to as preventive cardiology.

Because of this, you may not have to see other specialists reducing your health care costs, visits, and preventing confusion and communication errors that may adversely affect your health.

Dr. Sloan is recognized by his peers for clinical excellence. In addition to obtaining the status of Fellow in his respective fields, he has been invited to lecture and publish in various medical specialty journals on the practice of clinical endocrinology, nephrology, diabetes, and metabolism. He has also been appointed to the Texas Diabetes Council Health Care Professionals Medical Advisory Task Force that writes the guidelines for the management of diabetes in Texas.

At the Texas Institute for Kidney and Endocrine Disorders, we do not just want to treat you with medicines. We understand the importance of healthy lifestyles and good nutrition in preventing disease, or it’s worsening and reducing the need for medicines. We, therefore, provide lifestyle and nutritional services with a registered dietician of nutrition. She has taught dieticians at multiple institutions and lectured at meetings both nationally and internationally (please see Dr. Katia Sloan's Biography).

Dr. Sloan’s dedication to learning, teaching, research, as well as his involvement with various medical societies and organizations (please see Dr. Sloan’s Biography), and the pharmaceutical industry means that he is able to treat you with not just the most up to date treatments, but also the newest. Our involvement in research and Dr. Sloan’s involvement with the pharmaceutical industry means that we have treatments available you can’t get anywhere else in East Texas. If a treatment is not available in East Texas, he knows where the best place for you to go get it, and the physicians in other institutions know Dr. Sloan due to his multiple activities mentioned above and in his Biography.

Finally, Dr. Sloan is actively involved in advocating for your right to access good healthcare without interference and burdensome regulations from the insurance industry and the state and federal government. Your healthcare should not be determined by non-licensed individuals or individuals you do not have a relationship with. We can’t promise you anything, but at least we're trying to make things better, not just complain about it or accept a lower standard of care for you, based on insurance company or government pressure. That’s just not our way.
