Dr. Salvan's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Salvan "Originally from Romania, Dr. Claudiu Salvan first visited America while still in medical school. During his time off in the summer, he worked with inner city children outside of Milwaukee and found he really enjoyed the United States. "While visiting I had made a lot of friends and contacts here in the U.S., and I realized this was where I wanted to practice medicine," he explains. "I finished Medical School in 2002 and then my wife and I eventually came to Worcester and I started at Saint Vincent Hospital." One of the reasons that Dr. Salvan became a hospital-based internist was his exposure to hospitals at a young age. His mother was a mid-wife and he often spent time at the hospital with her. "Due to my mother, I was introduced to the doctors and medical staff at the hospital. I felt connected to healthcare at an early age and I knew I wanted to be a physician someday." Dr. Salvan enjoys the challenge of taking care of acute care patients in a hospital setting. "As a hospital-based internist, you have the opportunity to treat many different problems. Some patients have cardiac issues or kidney problems or a combination of things, and this helps keep you sharp and constantly thinking about how to help the patient. It's very stimulating to work in this environment." When it comes to treating his patients, Dr. Salvan is a big believer in the importance of listening. "I think medicine really comes down to listening to the patient, and that human-to-human connection. That really helps lead you to the answers you're looking for. Working closely with family members is also very important, especially on end-of-life care." When he is not busy at the hospital, Dr. Salvan enjoys jazz music, cooking, going to concerts and playing with his two sons. He lives in Worcester with his family."
