What People Say About Dr. Javier Salgado Pogacnik, MD
Reply
I cannot recommend Dr. Salgado. When it was determined that my particular issue wasn't life-threatening, Dr. Salgado appeared to be unconcerned with finding the cause. In my opinion, he was dismissive. I identified a surgeon in another practice who identified the possible cause during the first visit and resolved it then and there. Had I gone to this surgeon initially, I could have saved the expense of an unnecessary and invasive procedure as well as much frustration.
