Avoid this doctor at all costs, unless you want your loved one to die ASAP. This doctor diagnosed my aunt's lump as a benign lipoma, and discouraged us from getting a second opinion. When the lump started to grow, the doctor suggested hospice (!). We quickly switched primaries, and the lump, which was cancer, was removed. But by then the cancer was in the bone. 4 surgeries later, my aunt is in a lot of pain. All of this could have been avoided if my aunt was operated on right away.

I had the impression that she and her staff only focused on the dying process and death of a patient instead of working to prolonging life. That's what is wrong the world today, the medical professionals are no lonjurYger healers but choose instead to assist a person to die rather than live.. sad.

I didn't have the pleasure of meeting Dr Salpeter in person (wish I had) but had some very important critical last day convers. with her about my 88 year old stubborn mother who had been battling cancer for 11 years and was about to see the battle end. Dr Salpeter was the most kind and caring physician one could imagine and went beyond the call of duty in so many ways. My mom never trusted anyone nor spoke too kindly of others- but loved Dr Salpeter in their brief encounter. Worthy of a 10

Ms. Salpeter received my father who was admitted to the skilled nursing facility to rehabilitate from a head injury due to a fall. He had a pre-existing high blood pressure profile and was on an extensive cocktail of medication to keep that in check. Ms. Salpeter decided to ignore those pre existing prescriptions and decided to administer her own BP medications...this resulted in his BP skyrocketing to off the charts and putting his life at risk...despite our urging her administer the meds.

Upon moving into SanMateo County from out of state I was fortunate indeed in establishing Dr. Saltpeter as my primary care physician! 83 at the time and a former world traveler I'd had plentiful experience with MDs her and abroad. None came even close to comparing with Dr. Saltpeter's caring nature and medical expertise. When the MD with whom she shared an office left, Dr. S. too was forced to look elsewhere. When she became a hospitalist it was my loss but a windfall for others.

We regret the day Dr Salpeter walked into our elderly mother's hospital room, introduced herself, and offered to be her treating physician.
