Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

I have been a patient off and on for the past 7 years of Dr. Salamon's. He is fantastic. 5 Stars all the way. He is caring and listens to how you feel. Takes your concerns very seriously and treats your pain the same way. His Staff is fantastic as well! Thank you Dr. Salamon for all your help with all of my surgeries over the years. You are the best! Funny too!

Dr. Salamon is one of the few doctors I have ever seen who takes the time to sit down and explain things. I tell everybody I know if they need a pain doctor they need to see Dr. Salamon!

I have been going to Dr. Salamon for over two years for pain treatment. From the beginning he has been more personable and has spent more time with me than any other Dr. I have seen ( and after nine surgeries I have seen a lot). He has helped my pain and has made it possible through his treatments for me to get out and be active again. I strongly recommend Dr. Salamon to anyone that needs a pain Dr.

Dr. Salamon sat with me and explained things in a way that made sense. He has always taken the time I need to answer all my questions. He has also made my back pain go away!

Has a terrible personality! Spend all of 3 minutes with me all of which were spend typing into the computer. Never said hello, smiled, or even gave eye contact. I was in a lot of pain and preferred to cancel my procedure and went elsewhere.

I have had two surgeries on my back, both times I have gone to Dr. Salamon as I was still having pain and muscle spasms in my back. He eliminated the pain I was having everyday. It was great to be able to stand up, walk and have some normal function. He gave me my life back. Personnal Doctor with a great staff.
