It was very much appreciated the time that Dr. Salgado took to thoroughly explain, as well as draw me pictures on the provided dry erase board in the exam room to ensure my understanding of my condition, and to help me understand my plan of care. Dr. Salgado, as well as his nurse made my comfort, and privacy a top priority, and patiently answered all of my questions. I am thankful I was referred to this physician.
