Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Salerno "As an ob-gyn, I care for women throughout their life. My group and I have created an ideal environment for our patients. We are large enough to be able to provide excellent care without loosing the personal touch of a small group practice. In this changing health care world, we have remained independent in order to guide our patients where we believe they can get the best care."

Second time seeing Dr. Salerno in the past 2 years. She is efficient, caring, discusses all issues and performs a thorough exam. I would recommend her to others.
