Meet Dr. Crystal O. Slade, MD, FACOG

Every month, Southern Crescent Women’s HealthCare features one of our team members here on our website. Meet SCWH Physician Crystal O. Slade, MD, FACOG!

Dr. Crystal Slade is a board-certified physician who has been working at Southern Crescent Women’s HealthCare for 15 years. She completed her residency program at Medical College of Pennsylvania / Hahnemann in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and completed the MD program at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine in Cleveland, Ohio. Dr. Slade also received recognition for Outstanding Achievement in Undergraduate research from Howard University.

Dr. Slade enjoys spending time with her family and children. She loves action movies, biking, baking, and gardening. She also likes to travel to new places and viewing nature’s picturesque beauty.

She loves animals and is planning an African safari in the upcoming future!

Something many people don’t know about Dr. Slade is that her favorite flowers are calla lilies.

Dr. Slade enjoys being able to establish relationships and rapport with her patients.

She finds delivering multiple children in one family to be so rewarding:

“I enjoy being a part of the joyous new beginnings and continuing to see ‘my babies’ grow up,” Dr. Slade shares. “I always love seeing the older siblings come in with their mothers when they are again pregnant.”

Her favorite quote is passage 1 Corinthians 13:4-7:

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 
It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, 
it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
