What People Say About Dr. Gary Salzman, MD
Reply
He spends very little time with his patients, is rude and has little compassion! I spend 99% of my visits with a fellowship medical student and after discussing any problems/concerns I may have, the fellowship will then step outside of the exam room & reenter with Dr Salzman for approximately 90 seconds & he seems to be completely annoyed and on one rare occasion he did actually sit down for a couple of minutes crossed his legs and looked down to the floor while I was speaking.
