Great place. Sadly they don't offer good deals. They charge you to use you credit card...a fee. If you go to Summit... they refund you the fee however Summit does not accept credit cards. Someone working at Slater told me they accept HSA cards. Drive there and find they don't.read more

The amount of stems in these is ungodly. When it's 3.5g, that's *a lot* of weight to add that we have to pay for and... can't use. I just opened my bag to see HUGE stems in there. When it's so expensive already, seeing that is incredibly disappointing. We should be able to get quality weed . This... is not it. You're the only option in 20 miles, but that shouldn't mean you take advantage of the customers. Quality control is very needed here - this is a medical clinic which means people with chronic conditions, likely already with medical debt, go to you often. We shouldn't have to pay more for subpar product.read more

Line was crazy but there drive thru systems on point. Employees run and I mean run you when you pull in. They hustle... for sure! Order was correct ! No complaints!! Just remember to TIP YOUR RUNNER as they definitely deserve it. They are running in the cold heat sun and rain for you!! Show um love!**update 2/22This place is still a++ in my book. Staff inside and out are so kind and always smiling. Very knowledgeable and take the time you need for anything you may need. I hope the big UPS notice what what great job this facilities staff does!!read more

One of their traffic guards lead me straight into a traffic cone. The older guard there gave me an attitude when I... tried to explain what happened. They'll hire anyone with a pulse there.Edit: I had already spoken to management. They just told me they can't do anything because they outsource their guards from another company. Best to just ignore them I guess.read more

The quality has gone down a lot. I notice in one of the reviews someone has said the same and you replied saying you... guys disagree with that statement, but how can you disagree with your customers review… you should actually look into it it’s true there’s other places that charge less for there high grade product than you do your low grace product AND medical cards aren’t required, since it’s just a hassle to even get in your dispensary you should atleast have the best quality buds around but other than that there’s truly no complaints y’all like a 3 star company can’t hold youread more

Great quality and great service. They have great products and they usually have specials and sales pretty often,... especially on holidays. Everyone is always super nice and professional. There are many other establishments around to choose from, but with the order online/drive through feature, and the overall great experience, I choose not to go anywhere else.read more

Staff is very friendly and hard working. However selection and quality of medicine has dropped significantly... lately....... In response to your response Staff is amazing however your prices have stayed the same if not went up and your potency of medicine has dropped significantly. Compared to the other competitors in your region they are offering much more potent flower medicine most times cheaper than your lower potent strains....you guys were amazing please don't forget what got you thereread more

I have never been to a business now in days that treats you at a 5 Star rating every time I go . They are very helpful... and give you the information you need and help you find answers to your questions .They have top quality medical bud and always have tons of selection. I also would like to give a special shout out to Jamie which went above and beyond helping me. This centers staff needs to train other businesses on how to really treat your customers !read more

9/28/21 So I bought two oil cartridges. One is not full as the other. He should be just a little bit of space under... the rim. I've complained about this before but this took the cake today. They wouldn't exchange it and she tried to pray tonight telling me that there was a air bubble where it said Thomas later Compassion Center on the cartridge. Did customer service used to be very good now not so good. One star 9/28 21read more

I am a MA patient and was tired of the small selection of repeating menu items at inflated/high pricing. I was... traveling 35-40 minutes to the closest MA medical dispensary in my area, but when I discovered that RI accepts out of state patients I was optimistic to check the Thomas Slater Center out due to it only being 10 minutes away from me and the great reviews.Well, the good reviews are all true! My entire experience was professional, with quality goods at very reasonable prices. I mix and matched flour items and the quality was top notch! My bud tender was Gina Marie and she was very pleasant to talk to, not to mention very knowledgable. You can tell she cares about the product and the patients. Kudos. I inspected all my flour, and as an avid consumer of high quality cannabis for over 15 years I can say this MET all my standards for how my flour should look, smell, feel, taste, and burn! Besides the top shelf items, the prices are very reasonable.The only negative part of my experience came from another "patient" not from an employee. It was 8:00am on a Sunday morning and the car behind me was blasting music loud enough to sound like a club. Please post noise ordinance signs if possible. I can't imagine the polite security staff or bud tenders appreciate that noise either. They need to be able to effectively communicate transactions.Thanks for the experience today!read more

JAMIE is awesome there...She helped us through every single step of the process, and explained it all to my sister. ... She was very professional but yet made our trip fun. She's an ASSET to TCS and is EXCELLENT with the patients, and she knows what she's talking about and exactly what people need or don't need.....They were all very pleasant, but Jamie took the time to explain everything to us, each step. Shes wonderful!!read more

And a nice awning outside to protect clients from the in climate conditions like rainfall. Very organized!! Edibles are the best here.read more

Two years ago I had four stars but I must edit my review because they have improved tremendously with the knowledge of... their products. The customer service has improved. Their quality of bud has always been five stars compared to the other dispensaries. It’s incredible how fast the service is especially compared to the other compassion centers. Anyone who has to complain about slaters prices need to take a visit to the Massachusetts dispensary and see the price difference. Love you guysread more

I really liked going here for the first time today. Their kiosk ordering system is pretty awesome. You order on a... tablet when you enter and wait for your name to be called to pick it up at the counter. They also offer curbside pickup for your online orders which decreases the amount of people inside drastically. The place's decor is really cool too. The layout was nice and it was very spacious. There was not a lot of people there when I went on a Friday morning around 10am. The prices were very fair as well. It was a little bit of a extra drive for me, but it was worth it.read more

I know that this is a strictly medical facility, so the staff can't sample, but they should at least know A BIT more... about the products they're selling aside from what you can read on the label; if I ask about the texture of a concentrate, I kinda expect my budtender to be able to answer my question.Aside from that, the quality of product here isn't the most reliable. I've gotten very decent bud here, and then the next week have gotten flower that had seeds and, consequently, a grassy taste.I only stop in here for bud if I'm visiting from up north and run out of medicine to treat my gastric disease, and I always get a selection because I can never really count on quality, which is disappointing.Three stars though because their edibles are pretty fantastic. Very good selection, tasty, and they even have seasonal stuff sometimes, which is fun. Additionally, most all of their edibles are pretty tummy-gentle, which is nice for folks who can't always reach for a chocolate bar. I really recommended the coconut macaroons.read more

Staff here is excellent, products are great quality and very effective! It would be nice if they had more variety and... options at lower prices though, their flower is pretty pricey averaging 45-55 for an 8th. They don’t have a good variety for less than that and when they do they limit how much you can purchase.read more

UPDATE: I received a call from the management at Slater Center today. They were very concerned about my well-being and... disturbed to hear of the negative interaction I had yesterday, with Laura. I can honestly say I’ve never been so impressed at how sympathetically, promptly and compassionately they responded to my complaint. It would appear Slate Center still has compassion, and I thank them for taking the time to personally reach out to me and resolve this issue. -Thursday 1/14/2021ORIGINAL POST: Today I went to Slater’s drive-through to pick up an online order I had placed; something I have been doing since the start of the Pandemic, when they offered this as a safer alternative to entering the main facility. It’s a wonderful service. However today’s visit came with a confrontation with a very impolite manager named, Laura.I have never felt so disrespected. I have been a patient and dedicated supporter of Slater Center going on 5 years and have never had a problem with any manager or employee. They are usually so kind, sympathetic and full of compassion.Today’s confrontation revolved around a debit card billing error, on Slater’s behalf, which affected many patients, just over a year ago. Sparing the details, I was told by this manager if I didn’t pay up, I wouldn’t be able to buy any more medication from them. I explained I had called and spoken with a manager when they first implemented the practice of inserting a past due slip in each order and was told, “I’m OK, don’t worry about it.” I was also told at that time if I had the extra money to pay toward this debt I would need to enter the facility (something I have avoided due to the pandemic and the fact that I’m a cancer patient) and pay in person.Today after explaining all of this to Laura, and explaining I’m disabled so I receive SSDI once a month, and that I have Medicare, explaining that deductibles are now in effect since it’s a new year, and my prescriptions cost double my monthly income, her response to me was, “I don’t care. That’s not my problem. It’s been owed for over a year. My problem is clearing the outstanding debts in my books.”, which was the most incredible slap in the face.I was so upset at that point, especially since she wouldn’t listen to me, and continued to disrespect me and talk over me. Then she contradicted what I had been told, and read on their past due slips, by telling me I could have paid all year at the drive through. She repeated if I didn’t pay they wouldn’t provide my medication. Where’s the compassion?Ultimately after going back and forth, she agreed to allow me to pay $25/ month until paid off (approximately $130); but successfully managed to intimidate me and make me feel like a piece of dirt. She ended by saying, “So if you don’t pay the $25 dollars next week, you won’t be able to get your medicine.” -unbelievable.I hope this is not the direction Slater Compassion Center is going. I pray it’s is a single occasion of one poorly skilled manager’s bad decision on how to interact with me, and that Slater is not losing it’s Compassion. Always remember, there are other places to go, with more coming soon. -Wednesday 1/13/2021read more

Worker's are very nice. Bud was really good. When I first started coming there was always good deals. Now 2 years later... I'm not as impressed as I was. The prerolls r usually always too tight. The Rosin was Always great. The last one I got the consistency was different. It was more like Wax and not Rosin. I hope the next time things r like they use to be. Workers are still great.read more

My name is Christine BeauregardI was diagnosed with cancer not long ago. I immediately had the tumor removed. At least... the one they found. The radiation was horrible. It did further damage to my throat. I felt as though I was breathing fire every time I opened my mouth. Food, was the last thing on my mind. The physical damage was very depressing. I had no one to turn to with questions or sympathy with what I was going threw. I have my sons, but it's not like your mom or your sister. My life was very gloomy, uncertain and sometimes I felt suicidal.But when I shared some of my info with the Compassion Center, they showed just that. Compassion. And to the fullest extent. From strangers even!!I'm 62, and on a fixed income. These people offered me help with some of their product. And I must say, their products are of the highest quality, and they are doing it free of charge!! They are helping me get threw these days, and shining the sun back down on me. They are the kindest, considerate most Compassionate people I've ever met, and I truely thank god for them everyday. I'm afraid of where I would have been without them. Thank you dearly, for all of your help Slater. 🙂read more

I would have given it a 5 star only because usually as a first patient you can get discounts and someone told me the... state of Rhode Island isn’t giving out discounts since it’s a third party and it’s Covid. But then when I went to the sales associate she said I could get a paper showing how I can obtain discounts which was odd and confusing but other than that the service was great. The women were a awesome and informative and that’s what made my experience enjoyable. Will definitely be backread more
