Review of Dr. Salko

-

I left this practice very dissatisfied in Sept 2018 after 2 years w/ Dr. Salko as my primary care doctor. When I was able to see Dr. Salko, I found him to be a compassionate, knowledgeable doctor. The staff at Topsham Family Medicine are incompetent. My appointments were cancelled, my messages to Dr. Salko were not given to him, and testing and referral arrangements were often delayed or not put through. Last week TFM staff sent me false information re my last appointment, and are avoiding my follow-up phone calls. I have spent many frustrating hours trying to communicate with this practice and they have not met my health care needs.

Review of Dr. Salko

-

Dr. David Salko is VERY intelligent, VERY compassionate, VERY willing and eager to help his patients. He also is not afraid to admit if he is not certain about something and he doesn't rest until he finds answers. Also highly knowledgeable on EDS Ehlers Danlos Syndrome.

Review of Carleen Knight

-

carleen does not listen to her patients—particularly when the patient is discussing a health matter that makes her uncomfortable or presses against her very obvious personal agenda. She also has no ability to prescribe for comorbid conditions. She’ll help with one problem by exacerbating another and will refuse to look for the pattern with you; instead offering dead ends with her dialogue and no follow-up. She has no interest in helping those whose conditions make her uncomfortable

Review of Dr. Salko

- in Sebec. Maine |

Dr. Salko is the best, I travel 2 1/2 hours to see him for that reason alone. He listens, he cares and he is the best Dr I have ever had.

Review of Dr. Dechenes

-Topsham, ME |

Dr. Dechenes is the best doctor I've been to. She is knowledgeable and takes her time with you to make sure everything is covered in your appointment. Yes, that means she may be late, but I'd rather have that be the case then some drive-by health care (which I've had in the past, unfortunately). She listens and asks great questions so you feel like you are well looked after. I would highly recommend her to anyone. Her staff, unfortunately, leaves so much to be desired.

Review of Dr. Salko

- in Brunswick, ME |

Dr Salko is the only Dr I have seen in ME that actually listens to ALL your symptoms and considers your feelings. He is excellent in obtaining the correct DX for his patients. He is ego free! His ability to balance what the patient is feeling and emotional state in order to attain relief and manage the big picture is priceless. Working with you he can get you on the road to good health. When HMOs, red tape from insurance companies hinder your sanity; he stands up for his patients. An amazing Dr.

Review of Dr. Salko

- in Portland, ME |

I am an adult diabetic. In 2 years of seeing Dr. Salko, he never once checked my feet and continually discounted my claims of neuropathy symptoms and never addressed them. I have numerous health problems and he addressed a few and ignored the rest. Found a new doctor who cares about my complete health.

Review of Dr. Salko

-Lewiston, ME |

Dave is a great doctor. I call him Dave and not Dr. Salko because that's what my appointments feel like - as if I'm talking to a good friend who is willing to listen. He gives great information and advice without preaching, is very approachable, and realistic in his diagnosis. Like me, he is a man of similar age to me, and a husband and father, so he understands my life from his own experiences. He's exactly what your Primary Care Provider should be.

Review of Dr. Salko

Dr Salkp always makes you feel important to him and not like your just another pay check for him. He really cares. He is a fun doctor. I refuse to go to any other doctor since I met doctor Salko 2 years ago
