I grew up in the area where I practice. Having trained in many other parts of the country - all wonderful - practicing where I grew up, I feel gives me a connection with my patients that I wouldn't have otherwise.

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.
