Patient Comments (11)
Cleveland, OH |
I was very unhappy with the care I received from Dr. Salata. My whole visit was rushed and very little was explained to me. He wrote me a prescription for an anti-inflammatory, it was denied by my insurance company...it took him nine more days to write a new one!
Cleveland, OH |
I went to Dr. Salata for a second opinion and am extremely happy and satisfied. His interpretation of my images and his explanation with a short term action plan and recommendation for further treatment was wonderful.
I am reading some of these negative reviews and can not believe that we are speaking of the same doctor. Dr. Salata treated me with respect. Every question was answered in a very informative, easy to understand way. I have had multiple hip arthroscopies with another facility, and consultations with multiple doctors after those surgeries. No other doctor would take on the responsibility of fixing another Dr.'s mistake. Dr. Salata fixed it and I am pain free 4 weeks post-op.

Saw Dr.Salata today, and he was very friendly and very knowledgeable. He mentioned that I had hip dysplasia which was something I never knew until now.
Beachwood, OH |
Professional, effiecient and excellent Dr and team. Had successful knee surgery last year and would recommend Dr Salata to anyone I know.
in Solon, OH |
Never met with Dr. Salata, met with his PA. PA seemed effective and knowledgeable, but, when being told you need a hip replacement it would have been professional to have heard it directly from the doctor. Disappointed.
Cleveland, oh |
After knee surgery, Dr Salata left no discharge post op instructions for nurses to give us. So the Lyndhurst surgery center sent us home by saying, I guess call their office tomorrow and ask if there are any instructions. We don't know if the dressing should be changed, if there should be weight bearing, etc! The Physician assistant answered our ques on phone by saying, they should have given you that info in the discharge instructions. The web site looks professional but look elsewhere!

I had an appointment with Dr. Salata, but never actually met him or saw him. After I had a series of x-rays, I was directed to an examining room to wait for the doctor. His assistant came in and spoke with me regarding my x-rays. She then offered cortisone injections, which I gladly accepted. After the injections, she told me I was done. I was floored that I never saw the doctor. Although I never met him, he made quite an impression on me---and I'll definitely be looking for another doctor
Dr. Salata is a great doc. He takes the time to listen to patients and is an amazing surgeon. I couldn't be happier with my hip surgery. I am glad I stayed in Ohio to have my surgery done. Kristi his PA is amazing too!
Lyndhurst, OH |
Dr. Salata seems very competent and knowledgeable. However, he repeatedly threatened me that if I didn't lose weight, nothing could be done for my aching hip. Mind you, this was AFTER he explained that based on my xray, I am not at this time even a candidate for either arthroscopic procedure or replacement. So why were we going on an on about weight? How does he treat thin people with hip arthritis? I want the same. This kind of fat shaming is counterproductive and needs to stop.
Cleveland, OH |
Transition of care was awful and unacceptable. Horrible communication between Dr. Salata, his resident Andrew and his PA Christy and his in office PT, all told us completely different things. Every appointment was canceled by his office, some with less than 24 hour notice and absolutely no apology for the inconvenience. Highly disappointed and would never recommend any family, friends or even strangers to him or his office. Every question was answered vaguely.
