Best dr ever!!!

From the first time Dr. Salvaterra walked in the examination room, I felt very comfortable. She walked through the door with knowing my case, in and out of the hospital several times, and going over all the information that she had gathered. She explained everything, the reasons why she was doing things. I wish all doctors where as thro as she is. I totally recommend Dr. Salvaterra.

I've been a patient of Dr. Salvaterra since May 2015. She and the other pulmonologists in the practice are AMAZING! It's refreshing and comforting when you are admitted to be seen by your regular pulmonologist or one which you are familiar and they are knowledgeable about YOUR SPECIFIC case and not just a textbook version of similar symptoms. Every "body" is different and everybody is different. Dr. Salvaterra and colleagues understand this concept and are AWESOME!

I found Dr. Salvaterra to be very knowledgeable, cordial, and committed to my best health. She was quite pleasant to speak with, patient, and listened to my concerns. All issues were addressed prior to my departure. I wish more physicians were like her.

Dr. Salvaterra is a model for the medical profession. My first visit with her was fantastic. I'm a new very complicated patient with lung and breathing issue. She spent close to an hour with me and my wife and answered any questions we had. Her office staff was fantastic, professional, and efficient. I wish every doctor and practice was as good as Dr. Salvaterra's. I highly recommend her, she is outstanding.

I recently moved to Laurel, MD from Pennsylvania where I had been treated for severe COPD for about five years. I dreaded leaving my pulmonologist and hoped I could find another with whom I could be comfortable and confident. I need not have worried. Dr. Salvaterra is the best! She is kind, concerned, listens to and cares about her patients.She is knowledgeable about treatments and medications and leaves no stone unturned in helping each patient achieve his/her maximum quality of life.
