Well , don't really know how to put this, I was not happy with his office and his PA. To me all they wanted to do is a hearing test, cost more to the Ins. co. Make more money for them. I went there because i had a very bad Sinus infection could Not hear at all with out some getting in my face to yelling at me. My point is they knew I had a infection, so why did they do an expensive hearing test that was not necessary at this time? The PA also gave me the wrong type of nose spray.

I've had 3 nasal surgeries with him and still have the same problems. Started seeing another doctor since 9 times out of 10 Salamone seems disinterested. I'm also not impressed with his ancient equipment.

Dr. Salamone took excellent care of our 2 year old daughter when we were told she would need ear tubes after chronic ear infections. He explained the procedure to us and was so comforting as this was our first experience with a child going into surgery. It was a quick procedure and our daughter has had no reoccurring ear infections. We are so grateful that he could help our little girl. I would highly recommend him!

I came to see Dr Salamone with my 14 year old who had huge tonsils. For years we had been told they would shrink but they hadn't. Dr Salamone was decisive in recommending removal. It was quick, with no side effects and a short recovery period. We had been warned that this would be difficult in an older child, but it all went very smoothly.

Dr. Salamone and his staff listened to our concerns and treated us with the utmost respect. Our daughters both had different issues. One needed tubes, not because of ear infections but because of a negative pressure in her ear. The other daughter's ears produce excessive wax. Both are singers and were having difficulty hearing themselves sing. They are both doing great!

Took my son to see Dr Salamone for snoring. Instead of rushing into surgery he recommended my son have a sleep test first to be sure he doesn't have sleep apnea.

I recently had difficulty swallowing. Dr. Salamone explained the procedure he was going to do in easy to understand language. Upon completing the procedure he recommended a barium x ray to make sure there were no underlying issues. He said I should have a follow up appointment with my internist. I definitely would recommend him to others.

Dr. Salamone is knowledgeable, kind, and very competent. I lived with sinus pain and chronic sinusitis for years and thought that I needed surgery. Dr. Salamone is a surgeon who does not push surgery. He listened to my concerns and symptoms and suggested a non-surgical course of action. He told me to return if my symptoms were not better and that we would devise another course of action. My symptoms greatly improved so I did not need more treatment and I have been very pleased.

Dr. Salamone performed a tonsillectomy on my 3 year old daughter. We were very happy with his care during the office visits and surgery. He explained the procedure clearly, answered our questions, and gave us a good idea of what to expect after the surgery.

Dr. Salamone operated on our daughter, put tubes in her ears and removed her tonsils. Our entire experience was fantastic. He was always professional and excellent in his surgical skills, and was able to have a great rapport with our little 4 year old daughter and keep her fears at bay as well. All of our follow-ups have been great - he has listened to all of our concerns and questions, encouraged us to call with any needs at all. We have recommended him to all of our family and friends.
