He completed both his residency and fellowship at The Cleveland Clinic in 2005. Dr. Sloan has practiced in New Mexico and Washington, DC. He was recognized by Consumers’ Checkbook as one of the “Top Doctors in the Washington area”. Dr. Sloan chose to go into pain management because it combines the skill of using one’s hands with forming meaningful patient relationships. He is experienced in epidural steroid injections, radiofrequency ablation for facet pain, joint injections, and spinal cord stimulation trials.
