in Brick, NJ |
Dr. Salwitz treated my mother for breast/bone cancer and he and his staff were kind, compassionate, caring and extremely competent. They were always upbeat and made my mother feel special, like she was their only patient and very important, especially Dr. Salwitz. They gave us all hope and more time to spend together. HIGHLY recommend Dr. Salwitz. This survey is on behalf of my mom and her family.
