Stephen N. Stephen N. Carlsbad, CA 0 friends 4 reviews 5.0 star rating 9/7/2017 I got my prostrate removed by Dr. Salem over two and half years ago on Feb. 10, 2015. I had suffered for months doing self-catheter under other doctors. Today I am healthy and happy with a PSA of near zero. I pee like a 25 year old and the other nerves work pleasantly too. From my research and experience if you have a prostrate issue there is no better doctor and robotic surgeon in San Diego.

The best doctor of all time. She's LEGENDARY!

It doesn't get any better than Dr. Salem. I had robotic surgery, to remove a lump on my Kidney. From the first time I talked to her, up to now, everything having to do with her, and her office has been spot on. Not my first surgery so, I know when they get it right. In one word. PERFECT!

I would definitely recommend dr Salem! She is knowledgeable, experienced, and caring. She is extremely busy. But when it came to explaining surgery, she took her time & answered all our questions. And the surgery was a total success with no post op problems. She is the expert you want if you are dealing with prostate cancer.
