He has no bedside manner and treats people like crap.

Good discussion with the doctor, he is very professional and rated high in the profession. Found the office staff to be quite cold, not sure if they didn't like their jobs or the management wants that environment.
in Westfield, NJ |
I had a terrific experience with Dr. Salz and his staff, they were caring and very professional.
