Go with HELEN SALSBURY! She's very knowledgeable,PATIENT, and caring... I recently had a V-BAC(vaginal delivery after having a c-section) in April in which she was the main key for it being successful... Words cannot explain on how satisfied I am with how she handled and directed everything from the moment I got pregnant to the day of my delivery... She was definitely "called" to deliver babies to this world...

23 years ago, I did IVF and had multiples. While I naturally lost an unknown triplet during my 1st try, under the exceptionally wonderful care of IVFL. It was actually, Dr. Salsbury that SAVED My TWINS! As my OB/GYN, she listened that day when i said I could not make the trip to IVF Florida/Margate from my home in Boynton Bch. She did the major surgery immediately in Boynton Beach. Never has been a more caring OB/GYN SURGEON on this plane Thank You We LOVE YOU TWINS are now 22 & USAF PILOT!

Dr. Salsbury is very knowledgeable, she takes the time to listen to the patients and explain the procedures. During my delivery she orchestrated everything so seamlessly that my husband was involved during the experience.

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.
