Great doctor . He listens and he is brighter than the average doctor. Have kown him 20 yeats.
Kent, OH |
The office staff is HORRIBLE. They need to be retrained to be courteous and to know their jobs, or be fired! No one answers the phone; You can't leave a message. No test result follow up w/ the patient...mostly blank stares when you ask. They stand with their back to you at the copy machine w/ NO acknowledgement that your're at the counter...no "I'll be with you in a moment". I am writing a letter to the President & CEO of Summa about the staff of their Summa doctor. Totally unacceptable!

I have a difficult time getting anyone to answer the phone. I ran out of test strips and have been waiting more than a week for them to sign the insurance form so medicare will pay. I have had to guess on the amount of insulin resulting in several low blood sugars. When I finally got to talk to a person I told her how urgent it is to have the strips. 5 more days and still no strips

I've been going to Dr. Salem for several yrs and like him. He is low key and knowledgable. Waiting time is always minimal.
