I would highly recommend Dr.Salvo to my friends and family .He helped me get my life back, just being able to be out of pain and able to walk without limping,I am so grateful to him.
Sewell, NJ |
Confident, clear communications and positive attitude. Efficient but did not feel rushed in meeting and everything was explained well at every step of the way. Surgery (arthroscopic torn meniscus) was simple and recovery was quick and easy for me. Really appreciated him and his entire staff in how they worked with me, listened carefully, and put me at ease -- especially in the actual surgery center. Two weeks after surgery, I'm almost 100% and feeling great.

I tore my distal bicep tendon and Dr. Salvo was able to see me within 1 day of calling for an appointment. Because of the urgency to surgically repair quickly, he scheduled me for surgery the next day. Dr. Salvo managed my expectations and gave me realistic timelines for healing and rehabilitation.

Went to see Dr Salvo for a labral tear that was causing my leg to lock up and severe pain when it would happen. I guess an associate came in and did the leg manipulation not the Dr. Dr. Salvo walked in never touched me and told me he had no plans on helping me. I don't know why to this day. He was very short with me and walked out. I went to see another Dr from a different group a Dr McMillian and he was awesome and set up for me to have a cortisone shot injected in the hip and helped me 100%!!
in Honey Brook, PA |
Great all around experience. Made a difficult surgery and recovery easy!
very positive outcome with surgery. PA john Fleischman was wonderful too
in Conshohocken, PA |
Dr. salvo Understood my injuries and the path needed to get better. He was positive and caring which gave me the confidence to get the surgeries I needed to get better. He and his staff where always available and supportive. He worked seamlessly with the other doctors and the entire process was as pleasant as getting surgery can be. I hope I never need him again, but I will not hesitate to call on him if I ever have an issue in the future.

Really cares about his patients and wants to help them succeed.
Dr. Sapvo is very professional and did a great job with my knee surgery.
in Pennington, NJ |
I drove well over an hour to see Dr. Salvo for a third opinion regarding a joint issue that has been causing me pain for the past 8 months. He spent about 3 minutes with me (if that)--said that my joint issue was minor and offered no alternatives. He did not discuss the condition with me or try to do any problem-solving. He might be a decent surgeon, but he is a terrible doctor.

My experience with Dr.Salvo was great! The recovery was very quick and a lot easier than I thought thanks to Dr.Salvo. Thank you so much for everything

Great guy and great staff. Explained everything thoroughly and took the time to answer all questions. I'm now completely pain free and very pleased with everything.
in mount laurel nj |
I was so nervous to get surgery but when I met Dr.Salvo I immediately felt more calm about the whole situation and knew I was going to be okay. He was the nicest doctor you can ask for and he saved my knee. Great guy and an amazing doctor. I am very greatful for Dr.Salvo! Thank you!

in blackwood,NJ |
Great experience. I feel ten times better then I did before surgery. I will recommended him to other athletes.
in Atco Nj |
There are no words to express the gratitude I feel for the care I received with Dr Salvo. He listened and made a plan to fix my issues. If you would have asked me a year ago would I be at the level of health I am today I wouldn't have thought I'm almost back to 100%. I can't thank Dr Salvo and his team enough!!!
