Having lost touch with him since we were room mates in college, it does not at all surprise that Dr. Salvidar has so many positive reviews. While never a patient, I always knew him as a kind, compassionate, brilliant person and am proud to know that he has continued to carry himself in that manner. Hats off to you old friend!

I was very pleased with my experience with Dr. Saldivar and his staff. I was treated with professionalism and care over my two month engagement with the team. Dr. Saldivar, who came highly recommended by his colleagues for his surgical skills, exhibited a skillful quiet competence that left me feeling I was in safe hands throughout a stressful medical episode. I would highly recommend Dr. Saldivar and the RGU team for the level professional, courteousness, and efficient standard of care.

Dr. Saldivar has been my physician for several years. I was diagnosed with cervical cancer and was treated at Texas Tech. He has been the absolute example of exemplary professionalism and compassion. I am healthy because of him and his outstanding staff. He is indeed a superman - Thank you RGU Oncology.

Dr. Saldivar was very professional and straightforward regarding diagnosis and treatment. I strongly recommend him. So glad he has joined this new group. At Texas Tech the wait was longer than 2 hours but at a private facility the process is much quicker and efficient.

I would wholeheartedly recommend Dr Saldivar - he is beyond words in his caring and empathetic manner. He is understanding and unhurried in answering questions and has the bedside manners every patient looks for in a physician.

Dr. Saldivar is a professional, caring doctor who went over and beyond while my mother was under his care. Words cannot express our gratitude, he made her feel comfortable and most of all he trusted him completely. My mother died February 2016 and we want to thank Dr. Saldivar and his staff for caring.
