What People Say About Dr. Philip Salko, MD

I saw Dr. Salko for treatment of Plantar Fasciitis in October & November 2018. He referred me to a Physical Therapist who made my condition worse. He gave me a cortisone shot that was completely ineffective. He then charged me $112.00 for the injection above what Blue Cross paid for and in addition to the charge for the office visit. He refused to eliminate or reduce the $112. I recommend that people avoid this little egomaniac.

Dr. Salko was very kind and good at listening to my description of my symptoms, however in hindsight, after finding the right medical team, I found him to be unhelpful by being too cautious about treatments and diagnosis methods. I had asked for an MRA with contrast in 2014 for my left hip and sacroiliac joint pain, and he rejected that method until last year, under my pressure he ordered the MRA with contrast which showed a significant labral tear that I had been suffering from for eight years

I was sent to see Dr. Slako for a shot in my back. When speaking with him and going over my pain and what movements caused the pain he said that the problem was more in my hip. He said that if I wanted he could do the shot in my back but it will not help. They rescheduled me to come back two weeks later (yesterday) for the shot in my hip. Dr. Salko has a fantastic personality and I had no pain from the shot. He was talking with me the entire time. I highly recommend him.
