Bad experience here. Dr. Salz was arrogant and condescending. I also waited a very long time to be seen. I was a first time patient and I wish I had known what I was dealing with before going in. I will have to start from scratch somewhere else.

Dr Salz has been taking care of my family for over 18 years and we are v happy with the services we have received. As a matter of fact Dr Salz has gone out of his way to take care of my Son who had some advanced complications with his eye. Dr Saltz researched and found the leaders doing research in that area and consulted with them. He even went as far as getting us appointments with those experts. We strongly reccomed him.

He is excellent doctor. When I first met him I was not surprised because I had met some medical professionals in St. Kitts & they describe him perfectly. He is professional & that may give the appearance of not having great bedside manners, with time the softer side appears. He explains everything & makes you worry free. I would recommend him in a heart beat . For an office you expect to wait, it is well worth it but I think they could keep patience informed and make them feel they care.

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.
