Dr. Salgado is a sham. He meets you and talks to you over a video chat once and then nothing from him. The girls upfront are rude and think they own the place. I have heard there are a lot fishy thing beyond the posting of indecent picrures that contributes to him getting fired. Trust me don't waste your time with this guy or his office.

Dr Salgado is one of the best if not the best doctor & surgeon I’ve ever had. Would consider him a life saver too. Went yo him for Lymphedema in both legs, had a total of 7 surgeries with him, could hardly walk or at least right before the first one, but with each surgery was able to walk better. Don’t know what I’d ever do without him even in the future for that or anything else. There is no one I trust more even in the future. The follow ups went well as did the healings as well.

The worst surgeon i've had. I had several procedures with Salgado and he gave me nerve damage that still keeps me up at night. I had to pay and redo all the surgeries I had done with him. On top of that and the permanent nerve damage and waste of time and money, UM is completely disorganized and inefficient (at best). If I could leave .5 of a star I would, do yourself a favor and take this warning. It's not worth it and I regret it every day.
