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.
