Dr. Salas is very knowledgeable in regards to medical procedures and tests however he is apt to give you his opinion rather than ask for yours. He has stated that he knows pain medicines don't work for chronic pain and though he and others don't know how to help people with chronic pain, they're working on it. I have had 8 spinal surgeries over 13 year's and can attest that for me pain medicine does help significantly, unfortunately he has never bothered to ask me.

Explains well. Considerable liking ways with patient. Willing to try different ways of treatment
in Reno, nv |
He is a very knowledgeable and thorough Dr. I have many severe health problems which make it difficult for dr to treat me. He was willing to do the research and find the problem not just pass the buck. I have DDD, chronic back pain and neuropathy in my legs due to blood clot's. Among many other health problems. When I started seeing him I could barely walk with a walker on pain patches anf stayed in bed most days due to pain. now I walk sometime without my cane. He is strict but for ur own good
