Review of Dr. Salach

-

I was having very large oral sores that drain and severe Raynauds, vascular sx's, daily joint swelling. I asked for further meds besides plaqunil. He refused due to normal imflammatory markers. Gave 1 NSAID “for aches and pains” which was and a diet plan (I weigh 105 lbs) and exercise. I could without the patrionzing. I Showed up to Shands with and left w/ immunosupressants that day due to how "extensive this is" and they took over my care. If its serious Autoimmune go to a big city.

I was referred to this doctor. After waiting 2 weeks for a call, I called them and was told that the oerson who calls the referred patients only works 2 days a week. The receptionist went on to say that I was only suffering from fatigue. Fact is I was nearly comatose, unable to do anything. Finally after waiting 3 weeks the call came to make an appointment. I didn't get to see the doctor for yet 3 more weeks. I was not impressed by the doctor. I have PMR and am now fighting with them for meds.

Dr. Salach is a DO.. specializing in Rheumatology...thats it. No memberships, no specialized education, no affiliations. He doesnt keep up on the latest. Been to him a few times and he really doesnt know how to diagnose or treat. The office staff is undesirable and useless. Find another Rheumatologist, save your time and money!

Review of Dr. Salach

-Orlando, FL |

Horrible experience. Left his office in tears. The NP was great, but the doctor himself had the worst bedside manor I've ever encountered. He undermined, blew off and minimized every symptom and diagnosis I have. Needless to say if not recommend him. I prefer a doctor who cares about his patients and hears them. I felt like everything I said didn't matter. His rudeness and cold attitude wss more than I care to endure ever again. Not to mention I waited over an hour to be seen.

Take the time to get to know him. He is a wonderful Dr.He has helped me and spent more time with me than any other Dr. in Titusville. I have been treated respected by his staff in both of his offices although I usually see him in Titusville. He does encourage exercise and weight loss as well as medicine and I think that is smart. Does is hurt sometimes,yes! Has it improved my condition? Yes!

Dr Salach gives the most comprehensive examination I have ever seen. He shows great concern & compassion for his patients. I have accompanied both of my parents to appointments and trust him completely. He is concerned not only with his specific speciality but with their entire health and well being. He listens carefully but also is very observant of how they move, their mental state, and emotional state. He answers questions thoroughly, in an appropriate volume, makes sure they understand.

Review of Dr. Salach

- in Melbourne, Fl |

Terrible Doctor. Doctor acts like a child because patient did not take Remicade according to his desire. Doctor asked patient to find another Rhuematologist because his feelings are hurt since patient did not adhere to his schedule. Patient is in severe pain and will not see her new Rhuematologist until November (2 months). Put patient in the position of not having any medication to control her arthritis. Could not recommend this Doctor.

Review of Dr. Salach

-Orlando, FL |

DO NOT, I REPEAT DO NOT go to Dr. Salach. He's a good doctor who is good at treating your conditions, but his office staff is rude, horrible customer service. They have completely turned me off with their bad manners and impolite ways. Dr. Salach is good if you're in need of medical care in the early stages to get your health back on track, but he's very technical and not compassionate enough. His office staff needs to seriously be retrained in customer service, AWFUL, esp the one from Mass.

Review of Dr. Salach

- in Melbourne, FL |

Not every overweight person is sedentary and has pain as a direct result. That assumption, certainly in the absence of proper imaging, is neglectful as a provider. I see from the reviews, I'm not the only one sent away and told to pick up Tia Chi. That's difficult to do when walking 2 miles leaves you needing three Mortrin and a heating pad and now being newly diagnosed with a condition that won't allow NSAIDS, I was basically told to lose weight and stretch more. No MRI, just tears. Horrible.

I assume the loud office New York office manager needs manners. She needs to know what she thinks, is going on with the patient. She should not be able to tell the patient if they don;t have a a emergency contact,she should not be asked the question 3-4-5 times. All of the staff is great. Train New York
