What People Say About Dr. Salma Hitawala, MD

After running in circles to find help with my husband's RA, we found Dr Hitawala on our first visit she asked how long he had Parkinson's. I was confused we were seeing her for his RA. She said he may have RA but he also has Parkinson's. We had the tests, saw a Neurologist and she was 100% correct. All she had seen him do was stand up from the chair. She is knowledgeable and patient. She's got your back even in the hospital she's there to be sure you're being taken care of. SHE'S THE BEST!!!!

This time why my BP was unstable she identified anxiety & arranged appointment with cardiologist to ease my mind requesting them to schedule all my tests the same day because I don’t live in Orlando. She recommended medicine keeping my racial profile in consideration. In summary, if you are looking for a physician who can see through your ailment, is willing to spent time with you and go out of the way to connect you with the right specialist then Dr. Salma is your physician!!

I've NEVER complained about a doctor in ANY way before. "Dr." Hitawala advertises herself as a walk-in clinic. There are signs all over her building, her hallway, and her front door clearly saying "walk-in clinic." My wife was up all night with a strange, severe pain in her wrist & thumb and I took her to this facility the very next day because it's location was convenient. We were SHOUTED at-- told "this isn't a walk-in clinic" immediately upon presenting ourselves at the front desk. We polit

just now I have nothing but good things to say about Dr. Hitawala. I have not only been treated kindly and with the love and dedication a Doctor swears to provide each patient, i have also witnessed Dr.Hitawala to go above and beyond for other patients. She always answers a patient's call and provides personal care to her patients. There will always be difficult people who will never be satisfied. There will always be people who want to be their own doctor and find it hard to accept the instruct

We were lucky to find Dr. Hitawala while my mother was very ill and in the hospital. We were very unhappy with the doctors she had and when Dr. Hitawala took over her care we got the caring and knowledgeable doctor we needed to get my mother well. She was always available, visited my mother regularly, even gave us her cell phone number and called us to keep us informed about what was happening. She got my mother through a very serious illness. She goes above and beyond.

Dr. Hitawala is the first doctor I have had in the last 30 years that has helped me with all my problem and complaints. She listens, asks questions and always has an answer and if not, she finds someone with the answer. I have recommended Dr. Hitawala to my family and friends. They have all told me she is the best doctor they have every had.

Dr. Hitawala has been treating my grandmother for past several months and we have received nothing but outstanding care for her. Dr. H has made sure she knows all of my family members, keeps us in loop and obviously most importantly manages my grandmothers very complicated medical conditions with extreme care. Dr H works well with consulting other specialists when necessary and getting back to you promptly.

Dr. Hitawala was the most patient, professional and considerate doctor who ever treated my partner. After our dealing with her in South Lake hospital I transferred my medical records to her office because I feel complete trust in her opinion and advice. I would recommend her to anyone who wants a doctor that you can relate to and doesn't rush you out of the office because patients are waiting. Only thing is sometimes she takes too much time with patients and you are left waiting long past.
