I absolutely LOVE Dr. Dallas nd! My daughter was his patient for a time for treatment of a compressed nerve following an auto accident. His bedside manner, his genuine caring and concern for me always came through at each encounter. I am facing spinal surgery but he will leave it up to me to decide when. Very professional and knowledgeable is he, as are his staff. I highly recommend him.

Well it has been six years since I first met Dr. Walking but I truly must say he has left a lasting impression on me. He takes time to explain things to you in a caring and respectful manner. Thank you Dr. Walking I will not forget your time and patience you showed me. William Zuggi

Dr. Salkind made me feel very confident about having the surgery (Laminectomy) that I was very fearful about. He explained the procedure a lot different than two other surgeons. The nurse who interviewed me was excellent and very caring.

Dr. Salkind is amazing! I have had a shunt placed by him and he was astounded me with his professionalism and care for patients. I have lived normally w/o a shunt until things went wrong in my body and Dr. Salkind had visited me twice at the hospital to see how I was doing. His office staff are also very prompt with any needs and have always been very courteous in addressing any questions or concerns. He has saved my life and I am forever grateful!
