Dr. Salazar is so caring and thorough. He answers each question I have with such clarity! I have been in his care for 6 years with pacemaker, heart ablation, and various tests. Because of relocations I’ve had 4 good cardiologists. He is the very best!!!

He is incredibly knowledgeable and skillful, yet is committed to making sure you completely understand exactly what is going on. Dr. Salazar clearly cares deeply about the welfare of his patients in their entirety. Unlike many specialists who are laser focused on the body part they specialize on and that alone, Dr. Salazar cares about his patients - mind, body(in it's totality) & soul!
