Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I personally had an excellent experience. I was an hour or so late and they still saw me.I have needed this expertise in a surgical procedure for several years I feel very honored to have such excellent talent working on my spine. I am finally getting my life back ! Hiking, Skating, Swimming, biking, dirt bike riding and even painless walking, I don't have to watch others and cry because I could not participate in my favorite sports and I can be a fun Granny which is something my grandkids are going to have a big fun surprise from. THANK YOU DR.SALEM.

I waited in the patient room for an hour and half past my appointment time. They don't validate parking so I had to pay for the extra time that I was there. When he finally did arrive I felt that I was being rushed. I have had 2 other surgeons recommend the same thing which is another procedure to be done but Dr Salem suggested pain management... unfortunately my insurance will only allow me to see him but I will not be going back to see this Dr again. I was not comfortable with him and his demeanor was far from warm and polite.

I had an appointment to see the doctor, when I got there his staff didn't notify me that doctor is not ever in the office. They put me in an office and a lady came in and started taking history,

For my first appointment I waited an hour just to be seen by his Physician's Assistant for 10 minutes and to tell me that they couldn't do anything until I got an MRI. For the 2nd appt. I waited an hour and 15 min. for him to tell me that I needed Pain Management. Also, he did not recommend anyone to go to. I had to go find someone on my own.
