Patient Comments (3)

Dr. Salameh diagnosed my inguinal hernia & operated on it. He explained my condition to me in detail & I chose to have the surgery (surgery was 3 weeks ago & it went very smoothly). My recovery is going much faster than I expected, I was out & about within 3 days & I was feeling more or less...more

Dr Salameh never showed his face in the four days he was my doctor even after repeated requests for him to come and discuss my diagnosis. He obviously does not care about his patients well-being. DO NOT RECOMMEND!!!
