Dr Salgado and his staff have always provided me with a great care while dealing with unpleasant circumstances. I would recommend Dr Salgado highly to anyone with my medical issues.

March 13, 2018

I was avoiding seeing a doctor for my issues due to embarrassment but Dr. Salgado made me feel very comfortable. He took the time to explain my condition, even drawing pictures that helped me understand it better. He also explained all of the treatments he recommended. He made me feel like he was treating me as an individual and not just treating a condition.
