I have been Dr. Salazar patient for over 10 years. The best Doctor ever. I can say only best things about him.

Every time I attempted to call and make an appointment. I was always told to go to the walk in clinic. I had been in the ER with an injury and was told to follow up with my Primary Care Dr. (Dr. Salazar) when I called the office to make the follow up appointment I again was instructed to go to the walk in clinic. What's the point in having a PCP if all they will do is send you to the walk in?

Dr Salazar takes the time to listen to me and he seems to really care about my health. He was very proactive with getting me in to see a urologist and in doing so probably saved my life.

Dr Salazar does not listen to his patients. He constantly talks over them. He does not really know his patients conditions very well. Does not go back and look at your history bases decisions on data he has at hand (i.e. Current blood work) doesn't look at history. Typically rushes in the exam room, spends 5 mins. Very poor bedside manner does not know how to converse with patients. staff seems to have a hard time getting prescriptions correct.

Bad attitude. Didn’t spent enough time with me and without doing test, he claimed I needed to take strong medication. When I said, please I rather you do a x-ray ... he threw a fit!!! Like a child! It was incredibly unprofessional. Doesn’t spend enough time with someone to talk

I have seen Dr. Salazar twice now and am very disappointed. He seemed to have very little time to spend with me, he never sat down and I was placed on the exam table before he walked in rather than a chair where we would be able to talk for a few moments. He did very listening and talked over me when I tried to have a dialogue with him about my care. Not what I expect in a physician his age.. Obviously not used to dialoguing with patients! Too many docs to put up with this!!!
