Very rude. Does not understand CRPS, yet touts herself as a specialist. She told me that stress was not a factor, very condescendingly "it's not stress." Almost nothing is known about CRPS, yet she was certain that stress wasn't aggravating my CRPS. She also couldn't be bothered to call in my prescription on a Friday afternoon when in was in a CRPS flare-up. Made me suffer all weekend, then when I called Monday to inquire as to why she never called it in, she told me I was exhibiting drug-seeking behavior. I had just moved her from out of town, was in the middle of a flare-up, and her behavior pushed me into a depression spiral because I had no doctors in town - they were all out of state. Finding doctors (especially CRPS specialists) you can trust is so difficult, and then to be treated that way when you're in the worst pain imaginable...I am going to expose doctors like Dr. Saleemi if it's the last thing I do.

Dr. Saleemi has been my doctor for over two years. I am extremely pleased that I receive empathy and compassion from her and I thoroughly trust her decisions. That is a first, as I have not had that in the over 20 years since being diagnosed with fibromyalgia. Other doctors seemed to look past me when I mentioned that word. I am so much more whole since meeting her. I love that she will allow me to be a part of the plan for handling the daily pain.

I want to help any one considering going to this doctor. I wasn’t treated professionally by the doctor herself. The staff was good. The doctor said my pharmacist did not contact her about a preauthorization, when he actually contacted her office twice. She put off prescribing me medication when I have end stage degenerative joint disease in my right knee. I’m in constant pain every day. Not something I can suspend until she is ready to be involved in my case.

Dr. Saleemi is an outstanding physician who really takes time to be thorough with her patients. I went to her after several different pain management specialist had failed to truly treat my pain. Instead of just throwing pillows at me, or lining me up for pointless procedure after pointless procedure, Dr. Saleemi assessed me, conducted a physical exam – something no other doctors did – and prescribed a medication that for the first time in 12 years eradicated my pain. She is amazing

She does nothing but make you worse!!! If you have RSD or CRPS, she does not understand it. She did nothing but give me steroids over and over and over again. My health declined rapidly and I gained a great deal of weight because of the steroids. I was in the early stages of my illness, physical therapy is a good course in the early stages. She never suggested it. Instead she got me hooked on OxyContin and Norco. I only took it has prescribed, but detox was HELL!! SHE IS RUDE AND CONDESCENDING!
