Humble, TX |
After 20 years as a patient, Dr. Salvato continues to give me the utmost of compassionate, caring, and personal attentiveness. A+
in Houston, TX |
Dr. Salvato and her staff are kind and friendly and professional. Dr. Salvato and her staff give me in and out. I have been a patient of. Dr. Salvato for about a year-and-a-half four different health reasons very knowledgeable doctor and reliable. Thanks to Dr. Salvato and her staff I'm getting better.
La Jolla, CA |
HORRIBLE! I'm taking care of my blind elderly mother who sees Dr. Salvato & I have never encountered a physician who is less caring than Dr. Salvato. She/her staff don't return phone calls (not even when the pharmacy keeps calling her). It's next to impossible to get an appointment. My mother has serious health issues and Dr. Salvato doesn't seem to care. I am horrified that she has a medical license and other patients. I am finding my mother a new doctor. This is unacceptable.
in Santa Fe, Texas |
Dr. Salvato and her staff are kind and friendly and professional. Dr. Salvato is the only one who finally diagnosed me with fibromyalgia when everyone else brushed me away believing I was making it up since I was so young age 27 at that time now 35. She takes the time to figure out what medications work for your body and explains that everyone's DNA makes scripts react differently in all of us. She and her clinical staff take the time to listen to what you have to say. And show that they care.
Brenham, TX |
Thanks to her I'm recovering from Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever that was diagnosed way too late and had gone chronic. If you have ever had intractable pain from an illness and found no way to deal with it, then you'll know what I mean when I say she's a lifesaver. There are no other doctors like her; I went through about 30 before this. She really knows her stuff; if you have a tick borne illness, you NEED to see her!
in Houston, TX |
Dr. Salvato is like a "bloodhound"! She goes to Dr. seminars & studies up on your symptoms and finds out what is wrong with you! She'll keep searching! The main reason she's such a excellent Dr.; I believe, is because she likes being a Dr.! So many people including Dr.'s hate their jobs and you can tell who they are! God bless you Dr. Salvato!
Houston, TX |
Dr. Salvato, herself, is an excellent physician - but getting to see her is not worth dealing with her office. IT THE WORST I HAVE EVER EXPERIENCED. Completely disorganization to a dangerous degree. Rude. Up to two hours wait time. Don't return your messages - even when dealing with potentially urgent matters. No nurse on call. Don't even get to speak to the doctor in person if you have questions about test results. I have never experienced anything like it. Unconscionably bad.
in Mont Belvieu |
I suffered for 20 years with Fibromyalgia pain and severe Chronic fatigue. I took Tramadol and it helped enough that I could live life out of the bed but I was still miserable every day . I finally went to Dr. Salvato and she figured out I have the MTFHR gene. She put me on Foltanx and it has been a life changer. As long as I take my Tramadol with the Foltanx, my fatigue is 95% better. I went to so many Dr.s and she was the only to really help me. She will get to the root cause of illness.
in Pasadena, TX |
I have been going to Dr Salvato going on 30 years and I wouldn't go to anyone else. She has literally saved my life several times!!! When no other drs could find anything and I was sooooo sick, she ran more tests and found the issue. I would and have trusted my life with her. She is so understanding, caring, extremely knowledgeable and I believe one of the finest doctors anywhere. People drive great distances just to use her. My elderly mother moved in with me, I even take her to see her.

INITIALLY, DR. P SALVATO DID A WORKUP PLAN THAT WILL INCLUDES TESTING DONE BY OTHER DOCTORS FOR OBJECTIVE DR. SALVATO IS THE BEST PHYSICIAN I HAVE EVER BEEN TO. SHE WAS VERY THROUGH IN RUNNING TESTS I HAD NEVER HEARD OF AND TESTS THAT OTHER DOCTORS DON'T RUN THEN THE PERSON CONTINUES WITH ONGOING UNANSWERED DELILAHS. DR. SALVATO KNOWS THE IMMUNE SYSTEM MORE THAN ANY DOCTOR I EVER HAD. SHE RUNS TESTS NEVER HEARD OF AND GETS DOWN TO THE BOTTOM OF WHAT CAUSING ILLNESS. SHE'S VERY KIND.
Houston, TX |
I had my first appointment with Dr. Salvato today and she was everything a doctor should be and more, both in knowledge of the condition and her sympathetic attitude towards her patient. She explained the results of my testing in full, provided a clear description of the course of action to be taken, and made sure that all my questions were answered. Dr. Salvato was clearly informed about the topics we discussed, and her attitude made it clear she cared about my full recovery.
in Friendswood, TX |
I've been with Dr. Salvato for 10 yrs. She's very knowledgeable & will do her best to actually HELP you. She's up on the latest tests & treatment protocols. If you're reading something that you think might help, she will read it & advise you. She not listed as an infectious disease specialist, but she should be. Dr. Salvato is very sharp & a great medical "detective". She'll try somewhat "alternative" treatments that later end up being widely accepted. Wonderful doctor who LISTENS! :)
in Plano, TX |
Saved my life- listened to me. Other Drs Ran test for 10 yrs. Then she ran the proper test. Found out what was wrong and started me on proper treatment. I never had a Dr not give up when I kept insisting something was terribly wrong. I now drive more than 5 hrs to keep her medical expertise . Her skill can't be beat. I moved I went to 52 Drs. Not one listened or ran any of the test u need that show my illness.
in Ft Worth, TX |
Dr Salvato has been my saving grace more than once that's for sure. I started with Dr Salvato in 1992, I am still with her. I drive from Ft Worth now, no way would I consider another doctor to care for me. She is the doctor who properly diagnosed me when for 5 yrs prior I was misdiagnosed. Thank God for her patients & understanding! I know this has come in handy for her at times with me. She without a doubt cares, truly cares for her patients, every single one of us.
in Houston, TX |
Dr. Salvato is very caring, patient & listens carefully to your concerns. I really like her, but her staff is difficult to deal with. They don't always follow through with her instructions. It's nearly impossible to get a call returned.
in League City, TX |
Dr. Salvato stays educated on the latest treatments.
in Katy |
Dr. Salvatto has been my doctor for over 20 years. she's compassionate and thorough. Her office staff has and continues to be the worse. Getting an appointment is always an ordeal. Calling the office is a trial as you will be placed in hold before you even have a chance to say hello, and they will leave you in hold for over 20 min or hang up. If you leave a message for the nurse to call you, it's a miracle if you get the call back. I've only stayed because she is a good doctor. But I'm leaving .
Houston, TX |
Dr Salvato is very caring and compassionate. She has the answer for every question I have asked. I am a retired nurse and remember years ago that there were certain patients that Dr Salvato took care of when they were turned away by other physicians. She has my utmost respect. I admit that the office atmosphere is kind of like 'organized chaos' but that's not a problem for me.
