What People Say About Dr. Jorge Salazar, MD
Reply
I have complete trust in Dr. Salazar. He performed a very difficult arterial switch operation on my then 11 year old son. Dr. Salazar was compassionate, forward thinking in his approach and offered and delivered hope. He was a true blessing to our family.
