Patient Comments (1)
in Poughkeepsie, NY |
Dr. Salem has been my OB/GYN since 2001. What makes him a perfect fit for me is his approach an mannerism with his patients. He is soft spoken and genuinely wants to know how you are and what's going on with you health-wise and generally in your life. He knows his patients which makes it easier to communicate with him and for him to understand what's going on. I recommend him highly. Along with annual checkups, he delivered my second son via C-section in 2003.
