I have been seeing Dr. Saltis for over 13 years. He has been very professional and helpful. Even though I don't live near his office, I continue to go to him because I appreciate the care he and his staff give.

I was 1st pleased with the Dr, I had post concussive headaches. He suggested nerve blockers in my neck, I was told it wouldn't hurt & I didn't need a driver & that id be able to go back to work after, it was worse than child birth, I wasn't prepared. It was for a series of 3. At the 2nd appt I took a friend, he was still rude and barbaric. There was blood everywhere he told me it was my fault and that I must be talking too many medications, he left me crying in the room. He wouldn't see me agn.

This place is terrible. Reception is rude. It took two referrals for them to even talk to me. They then used 15 year old info to try and contact me. My appt was at 12:30, got there at 12:00. Didn’t go back until 12:50, Dr didn’t see me until 1:10ish. I was a new PT, and he saw me for 10 minutes. And in that time cut me off Zoloft and Gabapentin. Today I was diagnosed with severe withdrawal from being cut “Cold Turkey”- ill for 9 days. I’ll do all I can to make sure no one else goes through this.

I brought my mother to see Dr. Saltis, as she was declining in her ability to walk. Without looking at the binder of test results and information I brought, he concluded within minutes that her problem was genetic, she was very"deconditioned", and needed PT (which she had been receiving but was still declining.) Second opinion at UH with the wonderful Dr. Katirji led to a dx of normal pressure hydrocephalus,for which she needed a shunt. After surgery, she is progressing!

I was told that I would have my appointment at nine in the morning. When I arrived, I was told that someone was in front of me and, instead of seeing him at the time I was initially given, I had to wait an extra forty-five minutes after. He also seemed like he was rushing me. He didn't give me any information, rather just said "get an EEG" and scheduled me out. The entire appointment lasted eight minutes in total and, before I knew it, I was at his secretary's desk. No hospitality, it seemed.

I am very disappointed with Dr. Saltis. He refused to see my son who is having problems with breakthrough seizures. Upon our arrival we were told we were 9 minutes late. Our appointment was for 4:15 and we checked in at 4:24. This was my second appointment with Dr. Saltis. I was not late for my previous appointment. The receptionist checked with the Dr. He said that he would not see us because he really sticks to his schedule and we needed to reschedule.

If you are not a new patient you have to wait months to see Dr. Saltis. I needed my prescription refilled and called in to have it refilled and the office never called it in. I was in the hospital and another Dr within the practice saw me in the hospital and added a medication for seizures and when I needed it refilled they said they did not have me taking this medication. That should of been in my hospital records. I had to go days without the medication that I needed. This is not right.
