      Dr Salsbury delivered both of my daughters and both experiences were amazing. Once on the weekend I had an emergency and she answered my call right away. When I gave birth she stayed with me the whole time, was patient, and never rushed. During all the action she made sure to stop everyone to take a picture which is a small thing, but actually meant a lot to have that picture. She made sure to involve my husband and family. She let me labor naturally, which was very important to me. Love her!

      She's absolutely horrid, disrespectful, unprofessional, and mentally unpredictable. Seriously dangerous doctor, and rude beyond explanation. It's beyond poor bedside manner to tell a woman on the verge of giving birth that she's a terrible mother with character problems, and to force her closed cervix open against her desires while she screams in pain. It's not "cooky" or "funny" to insult and bully patients into procedures discouraged by ACOG. And she needs to respect patient privacy better.

      I would not recommend Dr. Salsbury to anyone I know. She recommended a procedure that was not necessary. Did not explain the procedure in detail. That made me seek more information and second opinion. I'm glad I made the decision to get a second opinion. She also proceeded with the part of the exam where I did not give consent. I even said "no" and she proceeded with the exam anyway.

      If you want a natural birth experience DO NOT GO TO HELEN!!! They way she practices medicine is completely unorthodox. Long story short, she used intimidation and fear tactics to sway me. She basically threw my entire birth plan away. She induced me on my due date because she said my baby was HUGE (which she was only 7lbs) she didn't order me a ultrasound and forced induction on me. That lead to a series of events that there isn't room to type on here. BE AWARE! Wish I could type everything!
      I had very high hopes! Upon entering, I was greeted and really liked her nurse.I was seated promptly then it went downhill. I waited for 1 hour and 45 minutes sitting in a room listening to office discussions; then told that I had been "checked out" when I was never seen. The doctor did a rough and quick exam and proceeded to tell me I was "stressed out" and "crazy" and that she's sorry for being so blunt. What kind of crazy person would patiently wait? Totally insulted, find someone else.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
