Awesome experience.

August 31, 2018

Overall, the visit was above expectations. All of the staff were courteous and answered all of my questions. I would suggest this office to anyone e facing the same medical problem I had. I was by myself and Dr. Salgado and all of his staff made me feel well cared for. It is easy to be a doctor, but to also provide someone emotional support as well is a rare find. Thank you so much for everything all of you did.

I just want to acknowledge the kindness and professionalism on the part of staff at every level. ... especially Jillian and Dr. Salgado.

Dr. Salgado and his staff were very compassionate, caring and knowledgeable. I felt comfortable and peaceful after this visit and felt that he was the most compassionate doctor I have seen in awhile.

Dr. Salgado is a phenomenal doctor. As usual, he was kind, empathetic, and helpful. He knows my health history quite well, and was very helpful in answering my questions. I wouldn't go to anyone else.

July 31, 2018

Very pleased with my first visit to this doctor. His nurse was very professional and caring and the Doctor was very thorough and good.

Dr. Salgado presents with the Old School patient care, talks to his patient, listens to him/her and communicates beautifully in providing care... not so many colleagues serving the corporate system hegemony, avoiding even looking at their patients during the visit...

June 18, 2018

Dr. Salgado was very direct which I appreciated his candor. He was very informative and explained things in terms I could understand. His personality was a bonus as well.

June 12, 2018

There was, what I felt to be, a long wait time until I was able to get an appointment. But the staff and doctors were all very pleasant and helpful. The original intake questionnaire was extremely long and asked a lot of questions that I didn't feel were relevant to my particular condition. It seemed like a waste of time to have to fill it all out.
