What People Say About Dr. Holger Salazar, MD
Reply
Dr. Salazar, the cardiologist, is the worst!!! Extremely rude and disrespectful. Not caring at all. He acts like he is soooo busy that he can't even help an admitted patient who is bleeding! If you want to be treated like a decent human being, this is NOT the doctor to go to. You seriously might not even make it out alive. That may sound dramatic, but if you go to this doctor, you truly will see the risk you are taking by putting your health into his hands.

He leaves no stone unturned when diagnosing and prescribing to remedy a cardiovascular issue. He is a very caring physician; listens to his patients; and never makes me feel rushed. I would definitely recommend Dr. Salazar to anyone who is seeking a cardiologist.
