My boys have been going to Dr Salva for over 12 years - luckily, two have not needed to go back because their asthma issues seemed to have lessened as they have grown older. However, my youngest still sees Dr Salva on a regular basis. He is compassionate, funny and very easy to talk with . My son thinks he is the best too. His care and followup is thorough and timely. He listens and always takes the time to help our family. He is A1 in my book.

My son was struggling in many different ways. Dr. Salva followed through and we avoided an e.r. Visit due to Dr. Salva calling in an emergency prescription. He has followed through with referrals when other Dr.s did not.
