Do not come here if you are looking for a practitioner that at least acts like he cares. I calmly asked him to please talk to me and interact with me because I didn’t feel like he was answering my questions about what had been going on with me for nearly 6 months. His response was that he’s a doctor and he can multi-task. If you don’t like it then you can get another doctor. I’ve worked as a medical coder for doctors for my entire adult life and have never had such a horrible experience. I said I knew he had to document, I was not trying to say he was wrong or not listening to me but that I wanted to be treated like a human being coming to him for help. His answer was a flat “do you want me to order a test or not? I walked out and he walked out behind me but I guess I wasn’t walking fast enough so he felt the need to brush past me to get to the next patient. I’m writing this sitting in my car crying in disbelief and frustration. Spare yourself this experience.

I have been going to Dr. Salazar for a few years now. I can call the office when I am having a problem with my COPD and they will get me in to see him the same day. Not many Drs. do that any more. My previous lung specialist was impossible to get into without an appointment at least 2 months ahead. I live 150 from Katy Tx and it is worth the drive to get to the right doctor.

Both times I went to see Dr. Salazar I waited over an hour. It would have been fine if he had simply apologized for the wait. He spent less than 15 min with me and I left not knowing why I snore which is why I went there in the first place. This was after my sleep study showed no apnea.

Dr. Salazar has been a God-send to my husband, not only because of his lung issues, but his sleep apnea as well. He is very caring and has handled the lung/breathing issues of my husband with his upmost expertise and knowledge. My husband is very critical of most doctors, but he just loves Dr. Salazar and feels he is the best doctor ever. We highly recommend him!
