When in I went to Dr Saltzman for reverse shoulder replacement, I wasn't even sure that I should have the surgery, given that it is my dominant arm and that i have severe lymphodema in that arm. I had already had 2 failed rotator cuff surgeries on that arm and was left with extreme pain and hardly any movements. He talked me into the surgery. About 10 months later, here I am with no pain and almost as much extension as I have ever had for the past 35 years. I cannot recommend him enough!

Dr. Saltzman did a shoulder repair for me and was very easy to work with. He explained everything to my wife and I about the procedure and was very helpful with answering any questions or concerns that either of us had. He is very personable, takes his time with you and never rushes you in and out of an appointment.

I just had my second appointment with Dr. Saltzman today. I am stuburn, but after talking with him, I decided to allow him to perform surgery on my shoulder in a month. I have avoided this for years, and have seen other doctors. He surrounds himself with great staff, and Dr. Saltzman has spent more than enough time talking with me about options. This makes me feel comfortable, which allows me to make the best decision under his guidance. I haven't had my surgery yet, but I am confident in him.

I am surprised about some of the reviews which don't give him great marks. I am in my late 60s and a fall this year resulted in three major tears to my rotator cuff. He was recommended by my GP. I found Dr. Saltzman to be very professional on all levels as regards diagnosis, treatment, surgery, post surgery explanations, and post operative visits and advice. Four months after surgery and my mobility is almost what it was before. I would recommend him to anyone.

Dr Saltzman did my surgery 2 weeks ago. He may be a good surgeon, but he has no care or concern for a patient after the surgery is over. On top of his arrogant and condescending attitude, he could care less if he manages the patients pain or suffering. I had a severe reaction to his pain meds and he did nothing to try a different drug on me. I was in agony in the hospital for a day and was completely ignored by him. I would not recommend him to anyone. His comment was, lets just move forward.
Dr. Saltzman doesn't seem to care much about his patients, he thinks his opinion and impression is more important than the patients' . He spends 3-5 minutes in the room and recommends higher dose of pain killer. I would not recommend him to anyone. I think he needs to learn to listen better, and at least pretend to care more.
