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!!!

My visit was very good. Dr Salazar has a sense of humor and that’s good. He went over all my tests and said I was good to go. He’s very down to earth and will tell you the way it is.

Dr Salazar is an excellent doctor that is very thorough, thoughtful and treats this patient with care and kindness. He has been my doctor since 1/15 and he is also my husbands heart doctor, you could say he treats the “whole” family.

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!
