I went to see Dr Salvo for shoulder pain. He is a caring knowledgeable and very compassionate physician. In the past Dr Salvo treated both my children for various Orthopedic injuries and provided the same caring knowledgeable and compassionate care. He is an excellent doctor!!

The appointment revealed a lack of interest in my being a patient of Doctor Salvo’s. The excruciatingly painful exam created more pain, than I experienced pre-exam. Very sorry, but I did not feel welcomed as a patient. Thus, I will research another doctor.

Wonderful! Dr. Salvo did a top notch job repairing my torn hip labrum, and I am now able to get back to running long distances - pain free. I was actually able to get back to moderate exercise after about six months. He was professional and courteous throughout the process and follow-ups, and I HIGHLY recommend him.

I had a complete tear of my rotator cuff and a large bone spur that had to get fixed. Over the past 10 yrs I had went through two rounds of PT and now surgery was my only choice. Dr Salvo came highly recommended for his expertise and experience in shoulder surgery so we scheduled for 7/15/19 and I just had my 8 week follow up. The surgery went very well and I'm progressing nicely. The team is always there to answer questions and I feel like they truly care about how I'm doing. I still have a long ways to go to get back to normal but it feels good to know I have a great team behind me.

Dr. Salvo was an excellent doctor from start to finish. I came in with shoulder trouble and after my first consultation I knew I was choosing the best doctor to care for me. I haven't have asked for a better experience.

Dr. Salvo came highly recommended by my orthopedic surgeon here in Pennsylvania. He felt that Dr. Salvo should make the decision whether my daughter needed surgery or not. After reviewing the data and examining my daughter he recommended no surgery at this point but offered many other solutions that might work and a continued follow-up. So far so good! Everything is working as planned, but if the time ever comes that she DOES need the surgery then Dr. Salvo will be the surgeon for sure!!!

Very disappointed! No follow up. Scared us that my son may have Cancer and ordered a CT scan to be done that day! Wanted scan done at their facility but no openings. I was able to have scan done that day at a different facility. Salvo did not contact me to let me know results. I contacted them after 2 days and I was told by his admin that scan looked clear but their "expert" had not yet looked at scan. 3 weeks later-still no follow up! I guess u need to be a prof sports player to receive a call

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.
