I have only seen the PA's but, knowing that PA's go through extensive medical training and have a firm grasp on medical treatments for most common skin disorders, I do not have a problem with them. Kyle and other PA's have always been able to handle the variety of skin conditions that I have had. I have found them to be pleasant and professional.

I had a sizeable Nevus Sebaceous that had grown since birth across my nose and parts of my face. Dr. Salm was knowledgeable, personable and professional, explaining my options, listening to my concerns and ensuring I felt confident in my choice. The surgery was quick despite the delicate areas requiring excision and recovery was painless. I am beyond satisfied with Dr. Salm, to whom I owe being able to look in the mirror with confidence. I will be returning as needed.

First visit I waited over 45 minutes just to see the Physicians Assistant for a five minute consultation. My follow up appointment with the doctor was again several months out, which was subsequently rescheduled out even further by the office a few weeks later. The day of the procedure was concerning as the nurse was visibly sick, blowing his nose into his gloved hands while helping the doctor. Surgical tools sterility were questioned, as they were presented exposed in a pile under a towel.

I am a patient of Dr. Salm's office and am very happy with my treatments. I have had Basal Cells removed and cosmetic procedures done and was always happy with the service. Over the years I have used the two P.A.'s, Jeanne and Kyle and felt that they were always professional and thorough with my skin exams. I felt that I was well taken care of.

First of all if you're expecting to visit a doctor for your rash, I've been advised by one of their employees the doctor does not stoop to such a low level of work. Instead you'll be visited by someone else. Oh they're nice alright. When you say, hello doctor, you'll get a big smile and a, just call me Kyle response. Perhaps you'll find out the next day when you check Kyle's business card he is not a doctor at all, but a PA. What is a PA? A doctor's assistant but you probably knew that.

Dr Salm is meticulous and caring. I have been going to him for over 20 years as a melanoma survivor. I will wait as long as it takes to see him personally rather than assistants.

Dr Salm is a wonderful clinician-medical skin treatments are not painful and he ensures minimal scarring considering the person's esthetics as a plastic surgeon as well. His ancillary staff is for the most part ok but I would insist on seeing him!
