Dr. Salgado is excellent at explaining things to me about my condition. (He came highly recommended by my Colo-Rectal Surgeon from Hershey, who I saw when I lived in State College.) He is to do a procedure on me in the near future and I feel confident that he will be able to help me now and in the future.

The staff was very friendly and welcoming. I felt comfortable coming in for my visits. Everyone was considerate and concerned for me. My experience at UPMC Passavant was great.

Dr. Salgado knew about my medical history and talked with me about all of the options for managing difficulties with my colon. It was reassuring to speak with Dr. Salgado. I am convinced that he and his team are the best doctors available to advise me and provide care when I need it. Dr. Salgado suggested further testing as an option. He listened to all of my questions and answered them thoroughly. Dr. Salgado also gave me information about routine exams that I will need to have done in the future. I am grateful for the care that I receive from Dr. Salgado and his team of doctors
