What People Say About Dr. Peter Salamon, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I personally do not recommend Dr. Peter Salamon. In my opinion, his care was well below adequate. He does not have time to answer questions adequately or perhaps doesn't know the answer to the questions. He gets frustrated if asked more than one/two questions at a time and heads out of the room to see his next patient. His behavior is very inappropriate for a doctor/surgeon. I had problems with his treatment, surgery, and aftercare. When issues arose he became very hard to contact. Never again.

Dr. Salamon explained in great detail the problems of my foot, as well as showing me the damage on the xrays and other imagings. He listened well and answered all my uneducated questions. A treatment plan was worked out that not only solved my pain problems completely but a plan that also fit into my lifestyle. It was an overall good experience.
